Brett Favre is bound for the Hall of Fame sometime within the next decade depending on when he decides to actually retire for more than a month.
The Green Bay Packers were tired of waiting for his decision to play or stay home, and decided to move forward with Aaron Rodgers. The Packers were smart and traded him to the Jets for a conditional fourth-round pick.
Favre lasted all of one season with the Jets, and failed to take the team to the playoffs despite high hopes.
The Packers finished 6-10 in 2008 while the Jets finished 9-7, but short of the playoffs. Favre finished the season with 22 touchdowns and 22 interceptions and threw for 3,472 yards, which was the lowest total of his career since 2003, when he threw for 3,361 yards.
He was released following the disappointing season, and was presumably headed for another retirement.
Two years later, the Packers have won a Super Bowl, while the Jets have fallen short in each of the last two seasons. After one memorable season with the Vikings and another to forget, Favre has retired again.
It is as if Favre never played for the Jets at all since Rex Ryan took over and Mark Sanchez hit the NFL in 2009.
