Brett Favre, currently in misery with the Minnesota Vikings, has had plenty of chances to end his career fittingly.
I think it's safe to say if he retires after the 2010 season, it would not be a fitting end for the future Hall of Famer.

All of this after he could have ended his career in a dignified manner last season with a very good year, throwing 33 touchdowns to seven interceptions and leading the Vikings to a 12-4 record.
But Favre isn't the only one whose career has ended sadly.
