Measuring 6-2.1 it's possible he can be under 6-2 but he usually looks a solid 6-2
viper said on 16/Jan/21
If Favre is under 6-2 that's really bad news for Ryan Reynolds.
viper said on 16/Jan/21
Rice may be more 6-1 3/8-6-1 1/2
viper said on 16/Jan/21
Favre looks to have a good inch on Jerry Rice in their commercial together.

Rice is 6-1. He measured 6-1.6

6’ 2” flat nothing shorter nothing taller. Hell of a QB who was tough as hell and was always fun to watch especially his later seasons with the Vikings in 2009 when he was 40.
Canson said on 4/Dec/20
I doubt he’s under 6’2
Skolvikes said on 4/Dec/20
6’ 1.75”-6’ 2” range. Shorter than 6’ 4” Tom Brady , 6’ 5” Peyton Manning, 6’ 3” Troy Aikman but taller than Drew Brees 5’ 11/6’ish and Aaron Rodgers 6’ 1.5”ish. Smaller than the average QB size which is 6’ 3” but not a small QB by any means. I remember watching him when I was kid when he played for the Vikings in ‘09 it was unreal he and the team were fantastic.
Canson said on 30/Nov/20
@Christian: that’s it but I still feel the combine measurement being the lower of the two when it’s often early (in Favre’s case I doubt it). I see 6’2 actually being his low
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 29/Nov/20
I think the only reason for the 6'2 1/8" listing here, is because of the '91 Falcons Scout reporting of him as that. Otherwise, he'd be listed 6'2" flat.
Canson said on 26/Nov/20
He should get a 6’2 flat being he measured the same as Terry Crews and he got 6’2 flat
Canson said on 19/Nov/20
Now this is the case where the avg guess is a bit low albeit not but .06” low. But means there are some 6’1 guesses in there. However, Favre looks about as legit a 6’2” as Terry Crews or Sean Connery his prime
Canson said on 19/Nov/20
@Editor Rob: you think he grew 1/8” since he was measured at the combine?
Editor Rob
not impossible
Canson said on 11/Nov/20
@Vincent Caleb: agreed. That’s exactly where I have him

@Fried Chicken: I think what Vincent Caleb said is accurate. That’s probably around lunchtime as opposed to morning

@Editor Rob: why the extra 1/8” when his combine was only 6’2? You think he grew?
Canson said on 11/Nov/20
@Vincent Caleb: agreed. That’s exactly where I have him
Vincent Caleb said on 11/Nov/20
I think 6’2 1/8” is lunchtime and 6’2” is afternoon. He always looks a legit 6’2”.
Canson said on 7/Nov/20
@Fried Chicken: I feel the 1/8” is only given due to other guys having combine listings earlier in the day. The extra amount is used to offset it. Favre actually measured 6’2” flat at the combine, noted above. I feel he’s identical to Terry Crews who is also 6’2” flat
FriedChicken said on 5/Nov/20
Always figured knocking off the 8th off of him is more accurate as that figure was slightly earlier in the morning as opposed to 6'2" flat. The 6'2" flat measurment being slightly closer to this sites lunchtime standards.
Canson said on 6/Oct/20
Trump is closer to the camera than Favre. There’s no way he’s as tall as Favre today
Cameron Brown said on 26/Jul/20
Click Here He can't be 6'2 if he looks the same height as Trump, looks about 6'0.5 if Trump's height is accurate
Wheeliebin said on 26/Jul/20
With Trump, fairly even ground, Donald is standing a fraction closer to the camera

OriginalAnon said on 7/Jun/20
Favre looks about the same height as Lance Armstrong's son, Luke, on Luke's instagram. He's apparently 6'3'', so Favre must be at least 6'2''.
Canson said on 27/Apr/20
@Editor Rob: I can say with confidence Mahomes is shorter than Favre. Favre is a legit 6’2” Mahomes is weak
Canson said on 29/Feb/20
@Rob: I think Favre would edge him. Mahomes is likely a morning measurement where Favre looks 6’2”. Lamar Jackson and DeShaun Watson look taller than Mahomes
Daniel T. Wells said on 16/Feb/20

Any chance of a Mahomes listing, Rob? measured the same height as Favre, but looks shorter near the end of the vid.
Editor Rob
Not sure there was enough to really say he was a bit shorter...though of course it could seem like it from the brief encounter.
Canson said on 21/Dec/19
He still looks a legit 6’2” even today
viper said on 12/Nov/19
I've never seen a 6-2 guy like Tebow look 6-0-6-1 so much.

It's bizarre
Canson said on 11/Nov/19
@Shane: I agree with that statement. You are very very good probably dead on with athletes. Favre surprisingly was likely not a morning height. He is taller than Mahomes and Rodgers. He still looks a legit 6’2”. Even Andy Reid is listed 6’3” and he’s shorter than Favre. I’ve always believed Favre to be a legit 6’2” and this is proof. Maybe the 1/8” isn’t necessary but he is 6’2” flat worst case afternoon. 6’2 1/8 would be his lunch time

Shane Gray said on 10/Nov/19
Apparently I was slightly underestimating Favre's height. I never thought he looked this tall and I'm usually almost dead on for most athletes as Canson could verify.
Canson said on 11/Dec/18
@Rob: I agree with Rampage. Tebow at times can look a lot lower than his combine. More than just 3/8” to 1/2” lower like most other players would. He actually looks a solid 6’2 at times. Whil I do agree at other times he could look 6’2.5 however. Whereas Favre measured the mark above as well as 6’2” flat and never looks less than 6’2 with anyone
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 20/Oct/18
Rob, could Tebow be eligible for this listing aswell?
Editor Rob
Tebow could be argued anywhere between 6ft 2 and 2.5 at most.
Canson said on 1/Oct/18
@Dream: NBA players but NFL may be the same. Favre may be a measurement later in the day as he never looks less than 6’2”
Dream(5'9.5") said on 29/Sep/18
@Canson @Rob

Canson, I remember you mentioning that back in the day, the measurements of nfl players were different. For Brett, it's possible his measurement was after he was physically active in the field.
Canson said on 26/Sep/18
@Rob: why do you give him the 1/8” if he measured 6020 at the combine? You even pointed that out when comparing him to Brady on Tom Brady’s page? It’s likely that 6’2” is his afternoon low which is how you said you base celebrities here
Editor Rob
Generally I think since he had another listing of 6ft 2 1/8th, that he probably measured that too. He can pull off a solid 6ft 2.
Canson said on 21/Sep/18
@Dream: I agree Somewhat. But In terms of morning measurements maybe many many years ago they weren’t but they’re all Measured at same time. So the time of day wouldn’t vary from one person to another in the same class. However, the actual measurement used is another question. Don’t know if it’s a pro day instead of combine sometimes. Or if that person was closer to their low (had been up a while or on their feet) as opposed to being almost fresh out of bed. Someone Watt’s size is big enough so maybe he didn’t care about adding. Now in Basketball to give an example, Kevin Love is closer to 6’7” by all accounts and looks it. He is undersized for a power forward so even though he was measured in the afternoon, he likely laid down prior to so that he could measure at his max or near it
viper said on 21/Sep/18
Favre's hands are 10 3/8 inches. He's known for them.

Reynolds is 6-1. He admits it, he was also listed as that.
Dream(5'9.5") said on 19/Sep/18
@Christian @Canson @Junior

One thing for sure is this: Favre has 'consistently' look 6'2" if not a little more. I could never see him under 6'2".

We can't always assume that 'all' NFL measurements are a 'morning height.' JJ Watt has looked his measured height or even too close to his measured height. A peak Peyton Manning actually looks at least 6'5" if not more than that. Tom Brady looks an easy 6'4", along with Michael Strahan.

Heck, this isn't even a sports measurement, but Kobe Bryant has constantly looked 6'5"+ range, even if his wife supposedly measured him at 6'4 3/4". However, I do thing 6'4 7/8ths" or even 'roughly 6'5" is more than arguable for Kobe Bryant, though anything above 6'5" like 6'5.25" is stretching it. (There are a few 6'5"+ guys that edged him out.)

Back on topic. Favre is a solid 6'2" guy. If anything, 6'2.25" was a better listing, but I could be wrong. I would not be surprised if some people mistook Brett Favre as a 6'3" guy-- though I would think that's an out of bed measurement.
Canson said on 18/Sep/18
Agreed Christian and Dream!
RP said on 18/Sep/18
Brett looks 0.75” taller than Ryan Reynolds! Also look how large Brett’s hands are! Reynolds barely looks 175 lbs there!...180 tops! I think he claims 190 lbs?
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 15/Sep/18
Favre is a classic example of a legit 6'2" guy.
Dream(5'9.5") said on 13/Sep/18
He really is a solid or a strong 6’2” guy.

I could never see him under 6’2”.
Canson said on 6/Sep/18
@Junior: not so sure that’s a morning height. He generally looks 6’2”. He’s got Rodgers by an inch
Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 5/Sep/18
I mean morning measurement 6'2 1/8. But how can he be 6'2 when a 6'2 1/8 measure morning? He probably drop over 1/4 or worst 1/2 inch not surprised.
Rising - 174 cm said on 4/Sep/18
I agree he doesn't look to have lost anything noticeable, but 1/8" wouldn't be noticeable so whether he's still precisely 6'2.1" or 6'2" flat can't be known so it's best to be simple and call him 6'2" for the sake of comparisons. Either way, I can't see Ryan Reynolds taller than Favre: Click Here Ryan had 1.5 cm Converse and Favre had around 3 cm shoes, but the height difference definitely isn't less than the 1.5 cm footwear difference.
Canson said on 3/Sep/18
@Junior: it wouldn’t surprise me if Favre is 6’2 at a low. He looks one of the most legit 6’2” guys out there
Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 2/Sep/18
Brett is 6'1 3/4 before bed. A 1cm loss from morning measurement 6'1 1/8 should be the fact since most player lost 1/2". Vince Vaughn look a max 6cm taller than him. Vince is probably strong 6'4 1/8 at his low.
Canson said on 24/Jun/18
He likely would be 6’2” at a low while Aaron Rodgers would be closer to 6’1” since he measured the 6’1 5/8 in the early AM. So 6’1 1/8-1/4 afternoon
Canson said on 21/May/18
@Berta: Vaughan doesn’t appear (in my opinion) to have ever been 6’5. Maybe 6’4.5” at his peak but 6’4” today. He doesn’t give the same 6’5” impression that Howard Stern or Peter Hermann or someone who actually is a legit 6’5” (maybe 195 for Hermann but perhaps a full 6’5 too) would give.
berta said on 26/Apr/18
i dont understand how he could look 6 foot 3 beside vincea vaughn it wasnt mutch beetween them
Dream(5'9.5 said on 19/Apr/18
Rob, are you planning on giving Brett Favre a peak?

He did have quite a lot of surgeries.
Editor Rob
Doesn't look like he's lost anything noticeable yet.
Canson said on 2/Mar/18
Favre still looks 6’2 today
Canson said on 4/Feb/18
@Junior: yea for Reynolds I can’t see him under 6’2” but I believe his claim of 6’2” most recently as a solid 6’2”
Junior Hernandez said on 4/Feb/18
@Canson One point is Ryan Reynolds height is truely a myth so far. Reynolds look at most 1.5" shorter than a good 6'4 Michael Strahan on Kelly and Michael show when attend the show a few times but sometimes i look at him in proportion wise he does look just solid 6'2 not much more but strange that he did make many co-actors look 1/4-1/2 shorter than rob listed them. My cousin was almost 6'2 and atually have met Reynolds and point out in metric say at least 189cm when he walk close to him and they're both in converse sneakers. I would say Brett Favre is at least 6'1 7/8" lowest if 6'2 1/8 measurement took in the morning. Take into the shoes and Reynolds dropping little posture with Brett that he would be at least solid 6'2.25" if Brett is at least a flat 6'2-6'1 7/8.
Canson said on 12/Dec/17
@Junior and Dreampuffe: a peak Fabre probably was but today may be same as Reynolds solid 6’2”
Junior said on 2/Nov/17
@Dreampuffe(5'9.5 said on 3/Oct/17
Taller than Ryan Reynolds. No reason to doubt this listing.

Reynolds dropping little height and had flat converse sneakers with Favre.
Dreampuffe(5'9.5 said on 3/Oct/17

I concur Rampage peak today may just be 6'2" flat

Before bed: 188-189cm
Canson said on 6/May/17
@Borats Chicken: I think romo and Rodgers are the same height whereas peak Favre pushed 189. Maybe the 6'2.25 rob has him at. I see him as 6'3" out of bed
Borats Chicken said on 18/Apr/17
its like tony romo, measured 6020 then drops to 6'1.5 after even with the injures
Canson said on 17/Apr/17
@Borats: agreed. I believe jeter is 6'2". Some baseball players are boosted as well. I did meet Ryan Howard once and he looked closer to 6'3" than 6'4". May just have been that it was after a game (at a bar in Philly) and he wasn't standing straight but if 6'3" it's a good 6'3 or poss 6'3.25. Favre I easily see 6'2-6'2.25 peak Rodgers is prob 1/2"-2cm smaller at 6'1.5
Canson said on 14/Apr/17
Correct Shiva. That's what I meant that Favre could measure 6'2 but not Rodgers. I figured Rodgers was a strong 6'1" or weak 6'2" and figured favre was still taller than him
Borats Chicken said on 14/Apr/17
@shiva 181 cms, aaron was measured 6020, now it could be in the morning that he was that or possible that he couldnt hold it until night.
even look at this Click Here , he's with Rapper The Game, Now with Brett Favre he 6'2.25 even with derek jeter Click Here who's listed as 6'3 and yet brett's .25 taller, which means Jeter is 6'2 not 6'3 and jeter is younger then brett.
shiva 181 cms said on 13/Apr/17
@canson, Favre could measure 6'2 but aaron Rodgers isn't 6'2 he's 6'1.5 or 6'1.75 at most he doesn't at all look like a legit 6'2
shiva 181 cms said on 13/Apr/17
@ borats he's a measured 6'21/8 guy at almost 50 it's very possible he lost a fraction over his career
Canson said on 11/Apr/17
@Shiva: may still be today. He's taller than Rodgers from the looks of it
Borats Chicken said on 11/Apr/17
6'1.75 is hard to see, and its impossible.
shiva 181 cms said on 10/Apr/17
Brett favre's height is
6'2-2.25 peak
6'1.75-6'2 today
Canson said on 5/Apr/17
@SJH agreed for both.
S.J.H said on 8/Mar/17
I check the clip again i think vince vaughn footwear was similar to brett favre. The problem is believable that favre is 6'2 by his lowest and vince is 6'4 by lowest in a day
Borats Chicken said on 7/Mar/17
6'2 1/4 is close, but think about the hits for 20 years he took..i mean 0.1cm he must have lost.
Canson said on 5/Mar/17
Prime he could've been a fraction over 6'2" at night like 6'2 1/8-1/4. And close to 6'3 out of bed. Today likely still 6'2"
S.J.H said on 26/Jan/17
6ft 2.25in is just a round up. Favre is solid 6'2 and high chance he had more footwear than vince vaughn to make him 6'4
Mathew Robinson (190 cm) said on 25/Nov/16
6'2 1/8" seems perfect for Favre.

Borats Chicken said on 24/Oct/16
Rob, Your guess on john elway? possible 6'2 could he be?
Editor Rob: not looked at him much.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 8/Oct/16
Rob, do you think he's currently this height?
Editor Rob: I think a little over 6ft 2 still.
Ud 6'3 said on 1/Oct/16
Rob, If you have him at 6'2.25 while he was only an eighth of an inch above 6'2, so doesn't that make you 5'8.25 as well if you're an eighth over 5'8?
Editor Rob: since it is easier to round to a 1/4 and then deal with guessing.
S.J.H said on 1/Oct/16
If brett is more likely 6'2.1 i wonder how would vince vaughn be 6'4.5 , i'm thinking brett either grow a half inch or simplify that he might had more footwear than vince vaughn like 0.4 that makes vince vaughn apear just 6'4 , also the episode on kelly and michael although michael strathan look a cm taller than vince but michael dress shoe atually look more heels. My conclusion is simple , footwear plays a part for illusion being shorter or taller. Brett is solid 6'2 and vince vaughn is 6'4.5 barefoot
SportsHeight said on 30/Sep/16
Rob, with documented measurements at 6020 and 6021 (most likely sometime early in the day), what makes you think he's 6'2.25"?
Editor Rob: well I wanted to put him above 6ft 2 but the 1/8th in decimal never looks that great, so I have him on the .25.
berta said on 9/Sep/16
another guy that makes vince vaughn shorter than 6 '5 vaughn looks just a couple cm taller not more than 4 cmin the photos of them together
John said on 31/Aug/16
I don't see Favre being any taller than Tebow. Tebow might edge out Favre, but at worst they're the exact height.

Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 7/Jul/16
@Shredder: Evans is listed here at 5ft9 but no one has posted on his page in 10 years! Chris Elliott has been described 6ft but actually looked close to David Letterman whenever he appeared on the show over the years. I've been requesting him for a while. I think he could have been near 6ft1 peak and maybe 6ft now. Very skinny guy with bad posture though
jajamen said on 4/Jul/16

He looks this height next to Matt Dillion in There's Something About Mary , Ben Stiller for whatever reason looked minimum 5 ft 7 there. Does anybody have an idea on Chris Elliot and Lee Evans? I give them strong 5'10 and 5'8 .
Yale said on 19/Jun/16
Rob what does the term "6 foot even" mean? I remember some guy saying "how tall are you? 6 even?" And I didn't understand what that meant
Editor Rob: just basically right on the mark of 6ft, not much above/below.

grizz said on 18/Jun/16
WOW,the difference between Favre and Vaughn is negligible.


It clearly seems lesser than the difference between Andrew Luck and Chris Pratt: Click Here

Rob currently has Vince Vaughn at 6'5", Brett Farve at 6'2", and Chris Pratt at 6'2". Andrew Luck measured at 6'4" at the NFL combine. So Vince Vaughn is supposed to be a big 3" taller than Brett Favre where as Andrew Luck is supposed to be only 2" taller than Chris Pratt. To me, it looks closer to the other way around.

I'd list them:

Vince Vaugh - 194 cm
Andrew Luck - 193 cm
Brett Favre - 189 cm
Chris Pratt - 187 cm (I'll give him the benefit of the doubt)
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 19/Jun/16
A solid 6ft2 guy.
Mat said on 19/Jun/16
Rob, could he be 6'3? He looked at most 2 inches shorter than 6'5 Vince Vaughn in the clip below
Editor Rob: he could pass for 189cm at times.
In the past on here I'm sure someone mentioned he was measured a fraction over 6ft 2, but I couldn't find an article, but it may well be a better listing a fraction over 6ft 2.
