Brett Favre's streak is more impressive to me just because of the physical nature of football and how difficult it is to stay healthy. I know baseball players have to play almost everyday, but the games aren't nearly as taxing on the body.
Cal Ripken didn't have 350lb men diving on top of him, or 250lb linebackers running right through him. Both are amazing streaks, but Brett Favre's is just so much more impressive because of all the injuries and personal problems he's played through.
Hard to say. Football is more likely to get you injured, but if you manage to avoid any serious injuries, you have a week to recover. Whereas baseball has the daily grind, and Ripken was playing in the most demanding position (other than Catcher).
I'm gonna echo the statement of...well...Echoes. I'm not taking anything away from Cal Ripkins massive streak, but it was baseball. He didn't have massive guys trying to destroy him every game. Brett Favre takes this one hands down in my opinion.
This one is very hard to decide. I respect both streaks deeply and to pick one was very tough. But I am going to have to say Favre. I really want to say Cal, but I have played baseball as well and it doesn't take no more than a good night sleep to recover from a baseball game versus Football it takes alot longer to recover.
This is very tough, major league baseball is a huge grind. There are months when they get just a couple of days off. 162 games a season is very very rough especially playing shortstop. But just because of the physical nature of playing football especially QB I have to give a slight edge to Favre. I wish I could give it to Ripken because I respect him as an athlete and person more than Favre but I have to give credit where credit is due.
