Awesome, awesome player. Even better human being. He has probably been my favorite QB to watch, and I'm sad that his career is finally over. I am happy though, that I've gotten to watch such a great player play the game of football.

Couldn't have said it better. I agree with every sentence you wrote.

Great reset ;-D Now Favre has time to go find an ATM, eh? :-D

I hated Brett Favre every day he played. The times he toyed with my pathetic hometown Leos still makes me throw up in my mouth a little bit. :-{ Now that it seem official that Favre 4 ever now has turned that corner into 4 no more I can't help but miss him already. Not John Madden kind of missing, but the kind of sadness you fell when you realize that something you've always loved has changed forever.

Football will go on but I can never look on it again in the same way. It's changed now, a piece missing, a piece that Favre help keep in place with his throwback playing style. Favre opened a window back into the heart of football's past. A time when you could stare down your opponants and try to out-tough them. A time when playing hurt was ordinary rather than remarkable. Where you took the chance instead of running out of bounds. A time when the words playing not to win were not in the playbook. A time of warriors, true gridiron gladiators. Thank you Brett Favre for all the great memories and for providing a living link into the past spirit of football. You weren't one of a kind, just the last of the line.
Good luck in retirement.

Please excuse my sentimental ramblings. Too much beer making me nostalgic.

Man...Brett's been around for almost as long as I've been watching football. It's not going to be the same to not be able to catch a few games a year (usually busy watching Steelers). A great player who was almost as fun to watch in between plays as he was during plays.

Man, it's really starting to set in that he's not comin back. Green Bay and Brett Favre just go together.
