Of course I'm going to say McNair (of course my opinion is a little biased). IMO, I don't think a player is gonna pay the style of ball that McNair plays and not be a little more prone to injuries. He is tough in any number of different ways. Not just the fact that he continues to play when hurt (and at times when he could hardly even walk) but just in the way that he plays when he's on the field, healthy or otherwise. I don't know that I have ever seen Favre shake a defender off like a limp dish rag the way that McNair can.

For kicks lets compare though. According to's injury lists for each player (since 2001)...

Now when you take into consideration the number of games that Steve McNair played when he was QUESTIONABLE vs. the number of games that Brett Favre played when he was PROBABLE... even on paper it should be obvious which one is tougher.
