The way he should be remembered, as a Packer!
I HATED ELWAY BUT ATLEAST WHEN HE LEFT HE STAYED LEFT. EGO'S ARE HARD TO QUIET....
He was fine until he was hurt. Considering his age, new system, new team I thought he did decent. Nothing to be ashamed of
loosh23 - We will agree to disagree. Blogs are opinions posted, nothing more. Apparently quitting his job or retiring was the option he chose over getting benched for someone with better numbers and younger. The NFL is brutal that way. No one loves watching the guy play more than me, but you could PLAINLY see at season end, the years had taken their toll, his teramates disliked him, and it was time to hang up the cleats and preserve and outstanding career and reputation.
I wish someone will come and tell you one day when to quit your job .LOL . You people have no perspective .You should be ashamed !who are you to say he stayed a year to long . How do you know what great times he might have had in N.Y. or just playing football period . I could go on forever this is so elementary on your part.
I really don't wan't to be taken as rude but who the hell are you or anyone for that matter to tell someone that they should stop doing something that they want to do .I can't put it more plainly ,stop trying to be a armchair qb and tell him when he's done and let him decide. If someone told you to turn down millions and stop doing something you can never do again you would i hope tell them to fck off and that's what he should say to any of you that feel he should have retired before today .Anyone that thinks he should have retired a minute before he was ready is an idiot !
3 YEARS LATE. WHAT AN EGO HE HAS....
Great article Tony I think Brett should of retired after the magical year that ended with the loss to the Giants. Go out after a monster year.
I have to agree with you here Tony, as I have just as much respect for him as you do, & the fact that he is my 6 yr old sons favorite football player, made me like him even more obviously. atleast my boy got see 1 more year out of him. I really hope he retires for good this time....its time.
Great Write Up!. The LEGEND of BRETT FAVRE rides off into the Sunset.
