Thanks Favre The Memories

Brett FavreThe great Brett Favre retired yesterday and it’s a sad day for the NFL. Yes the league will be fine and will probably still grow in popularity for years to come, but the NFL’s elder statesman and the face of not only the Green Bay franchise but the entire league has left the field for good. If Favre has in fact played his final game at Lambeau Field it’s a real shame. After the year Favre and the Green Bay Packers had this season I had no doubt Favre would return for his 16th season in the league. Alas it was not meant to be and Brett Favre retires with 1 Super Bowl victory, 3 NFL MVP awards (an NFL record) and a slew of records including Most Career Passing Yards, Most Career Passing Touchdowns, Most Wins by a Starting Quarterback and Most Consecutive Starts by a Quarterback.

Brett FavreI’ve always thoroughly enjoyed watching Favre play and will miss seeing him lead the Packers on the field. I just hope the seesaw of will he or won’t he retire is finally over and Brett will be able to ride off into the sunset for good. That way we can celebrate his achievement on the field and debate his place in history as we wait the requisite five years until this surefire first ballot Hall of Famer is enshrined in Canton at the Pro Football Hall of Fame.
