Congratulations Brett! After thinking he should retire about three years ago, when he said in an interview that he did not know if he still wanted the ball in the last two minutes, Brett Favre says goodbye to the NFL after 17 remarkable seasons. He also leaves the game with fans remembering the great Brett Favre, not the one that struggled for a couple years in the latter part of his Hall of Fame career.
The true maverick quarterback, gunslinging his way to a Super Bowl victory and a lot of other big playoff games, even in losses.
He owns all the major passing records now, but you wouldn't teach your 8 year old to throw the ball like he does, because he owns some horrendous mechanics as well, but like Frank Sinatra, he did it his way.
Good job Brett, see you in Canton.
