Favre had an amazing career. Although his numbers do not reflect as much as people would hope, his legacy will never be forgotten.
The man to start 297 consecutive games in the NFL has shown over the years the attitude to work in and out on a daily basis. His successor Aaron Rodgers may have tied him in Super Bowl wins already but Favre has given the city of Green Bay all the possible effort any player can give to a team.
Not only that, but he has posted career numbers as well. With 508 touchdown passes, 6,300 completions and a career rating of 86 he has shown the consistency over a decade in the NFL.
Even though his career was played in Green Bay, it is his last years in the NFL that made him a great story. Him retiring and then returning to the NFL twice created media news that made it seem as if he would never leave the league. Many people may have been against him retiring and coming back but as a sport fan it was only enjoyable to see a man who love the sport so much and continue to play.
As much as I do not want to say it, it appears as though the career of Favre is over finally. He has been so open to his career and is a true warrior. Although fans may enjoy him finally retiring it is without a doubt that in general he will be missed as a person who had so much influence in the NFL.
