After finishing off one of his best seasons at 38, Brett Favre officially called it quits. Many believe No. 4's decision came because Green Bay failed to hook Randy Moss. Favre said that he would like to play one more year, but anything other than another Super Bowl ring would be a disappointment. Many think Favre is so disappointed about the whole Moss situation and believe Favre will rethink his retirement. After all, he's still one of the best QB's in the game. Favre will easily go down as one of the top 5 quarterbacks ever, and definitely one of the most exciting players in NFL history.
You can't help but to put on any sports channel and it seems there whole daily programming has been devoted to Favre. The best stories from Favre's career are definitely his early years. Like the night before he found out he was starting his first game in for Southern Miss, he and a teammate went out Friday night with 36 beers (18 apiece) and celebrated. The next morning during warmups, Favre's uniform was completely soaked and he was seen throwing up. On draft day, his name was mispronounced. In Atlanta, he was known as Buckhead Brett for the the city's nightlife district, Buckhead. When he was traded to Green Bay, Favre failed the physical and Ron Wolf told the team doctors to pass his physical. You never saw Brett Favre in a suit, only a T-shirt and blue jeans.
A few words to describe Favre: Iron Man, gutsy, leader, winner, record holder.
