3/7/08 in NFL
When I first heard about Brett Favre retirement I thought about a lot of things, As a fan of the Detroit Lions I was kind of happy because without Brett Favre who knows what the Packers will do and that gives the Detroit Lions that much more of a chance at winning the NFC North. But more importantly as a player and a fan football in general I'm sad, Because Brett Favre is one of the best QBs to ever play football. He was not only the best because his ability's but because of who he was. He was always a team player and more interested in his team over himself, And he was an all around nice guy. He is always going to be one of my favorite football players, he is one of my hero's that's for sure. He's not just one of my Hero's because he could throw the ball 60 yards but because of the way he always withholds himself. I have a lot of great memories of Brett Favre, One Memory that will always stick out in my mind was when he took the field on Monday Night after his fathers death and had one of the best games of his life. He is one of the few players who acutely seem real. He is one of the most down to earth players that will probably ever play the game. Early on in my life when I would watch football I would watch Brett Favre throw a touchdown pass and run down the field like it was his first. Brett Favre is one of the few players who played in NFL just because he loved football and not because of the money. For My entire life every time I thought about the Packers I thought Brett Favre and it's going to be hard to think of the Packers without Brett Favre. He is one of the few players that I think the NFL should waive the 4 year rule for the Hall of Fame because Brett Favre is a first ballot hall of Famer and he it doesn't make it difference if it's now of 4 years down the road.
