After watching a video of legendary former NFL quarterback Brett Favre throwing balls, it’s clear he is still better than half the guys playing today. It’s also crystal clear the gunslinger hasn’t lost a single whit of speed off his heater.

Favre was on a practice field throwing balls to Atlanta Falcons cornerback Robert Alford and others, and my lord he can still sling the ball.

Gray hair and all, Favre’s balls still have that distinct whizzing through the air sound that only comes from serious heat.

Though his accuracy can use a tune-up, we’re quite certain the grizzled old quarterback could still throw touchdowns at the highest level. Though his receivers would need plenty of time to adjust to his speed.

Hopefully no fingers were broken during the filming of this clip.
