SEVENTEEN YEARS, as a Packer fan I've been spoiled and it's hard to say goodbye. To anyone that isn't a Packer fan, you have no idea how this feels. Brett is an average Joe that stepped on the field each and every week unknowingly carrying the hopes and dreams of all of us. For those of us that never quite made it, we lived our lives on Sundays through him and his right arm. We felt the highs, the lows and the triumphs from personal tragedy.
What makes a man? Admitting faults, rising up in the face of adversity, handling success, accepting defeat. Brett has done all this for the world to see. At times with critics throwing it in his face. There was never a complaint from him. Brett Favre is the greatest player I have ever seen, statistics don't do him justice. As fans we know his true worth to this team and this franchise. It is the end of an era and hopefully the beginning of a new one with great things to come. Right now, I just want to honor the man that has brought so much pride to being a Packer fan. Congrats on a great career Brett, you left when you felt it was time.
