Not all of this has to do with the Packers, but it relates to them so it counts.
After Brett Favre threw an interception that essentially ended the NFC Championship game in 2007, it looked like the end of his career.
He retired, and for the moment, fans in the NFL thought that was that.
But after asking to be reinstated, GM Ted Thompson refused to give the superstar his starting role back. This was the second of many shocking events.
He was traded to the Jets for a draft pick that was to change depending on Favre's level of a play.
The Jets lost four of their last five and missed the playoffs. Favre retires again.
The end wasn't meant to be because Favre decides again that he wants to play. In a decision that flabbergasted many, the Packer legend decided to sign with NFC North rival Minnesota.
Favre has one of the best seasons of his career while playing for the Vikings but falls up short in the NFC Championship.
As you can guess, he claims that he will not come back.
His teammates, particularly Jared Allen, convince him to rejoin the Vikings, and you know what comes next.
Favre gets caught in the middle of scandals and plays poorly as the Vikings compile a losing record. And to make things worse, his iron man streak ends after an injury suffered vs. Buffalo.
