That's total bullshit and then some.
The truth is Favre was much more athletic than Rodgers or Elway, and he had an even bigger cannon than Marino did. He was also the most durable QB of all time.
He was an absolute freak of nature from an athletic standpoint. And people saying otherwise clearly never saw peak Favre.
So no, Elway and Marino were not "more talented" than Favre. Elway probably did have a better career overall though.
It was Elway, not Marino, that was known to have the greatest arm. He and favre are the greatest ever in this regard.
Marino had that release mixed with incredible accuracy. And obviously his arm strength was great as well.
But Elway was another level.
