Do you know who Brett Favre is?


If you are reading this article you must know.


You may not know him for the great football player he was (and he was great). But you must also know him for what he did last offseason.


He retired and came back, as the Green Bay Packers ended up trading him to the New York Jets and he played one season there and ended up coming short of the playoffs.


Now, after a long, but not clear, offseason for Brett with him looking like he may come back again and him looking into that he has retired again and is now out of the NFL.


As most people do, we look at the past and start thinking, can it happen again?


It is natural to think about it, and the Viking would love for it to happen.


But I think this is the end of Brett in the NFL.


The next time we will see him in the NFL will be when he gets into the Hall Of Fame.


Yes, we all know that he has already done it once, so what makes me think he will not do it again?


He did it once, he saw it did not work and I think he is a smart man.


Smart people do not make the same mistake twice.


He also knows that if he comes back, it will make people forget all about his great accomplishments in the past, and I do not think he wants that.


Yes, he did not want it last year either, but now that he knows he is not at his best, he knows that if he does not have a great season in the NFL, it will make him look like a jerk.


And he knows he is to old to have a great season in the NFL.


Another thing I want to point out in this article is that people seem to forget that this man owns a lot of records, here are some:


Games started by a quarterback: 269 (291 including playoffs)

Career passing touchdowns: 464

Career passing yards: 65,127

Career pass completions: 5,720

Career pass attempts: 9,280

Career games with at least three touchdowns: 65


I hope these things are right, as I have copied them off Wikipedia.


These records are just some of the ones he has, he also shears a few records that I did not write.


These records show that he is one of the best in the NFL, so give him some love and try to forget what he did last offseason.


He is done, and now we can put his great NFL career behind him.
