Former NFL quarterback Brett Favre told the NFL Network’s Deion Sanders that if he had to start a football team, he’d take Robert Griffin III over Andrew Luck.

“Griffin, he’s smaller, but if I was starting a team, I’d probably of went with RG3 just because, if they can’t protect you, you got to protect yourself,” Favre said.

Favre also seems to like Panthers’ quarterback Cam Newton.

“That dude is good,” said Favre, referring to Newton.
