Brett Favre to Retire
Posted by Ryan on March 5, 2008
News came yesterday that Green Bay Packers Quarterback Brett Favre will retire after 17 years in the NFL.
I loved watching Brett Favre play and even though rumors of an impending retirement have been around for years, it always seemed like he would come back again next year to play for the storied NFL franchise in Green Bay. He and his talented group of players came just one drive shy of getting back to the Super Bowl for the first time this decade. One pick and the Giants kicked a field goal, ending the season for Green Bay.
I’d hate to think that Favre’s last play will be an intercepted pass, but I think his tenacity, passion for the game, his victory in Super Bowl XXXI, and the love he demonstrated for the game on a weekly basis will erase that moment and cement Favre as one of the best of all time.
