Brett Farve is a legend in my family. The next thing I want for Christmas is a huge green Packers jersey with a giant number four on it. I really don’t think he wanted to retire at all. But hey, what could he do? Injuries told him to say goodbye. I doubt he would have if he had had a choice. I also think that everyone was really hard on him for coming back. I really wished he would have gone to the Super Bowl and beaten the Colts or whoever had been there. He deserved a going-out party; but all it turned out to be was a run across the field in a pair of sweats, a workout shirt, and a beanie, the next year. I doubt that coming back to the Jets wasn’t just a huge love of the game. I don’t think we should have called him an old man; he was, but still. Would you have enough will power and heart to come back at forty or how ever old he was? That’s something deeper than just wanting to play, or to have fame. It was much, much more than that. I will miss him this season, but maybe it’s time to sit back, and watch the game. He earned a spot in the Hall of Fame and I have no doubt he will get there. I just wanted his leaving to be much more glamorous. I think Brett Farve is one of the best quarterbacks of all time; I don’t care who you are. Brett’s talent and heart put together. I hope no one ever forgets him.

I hope this isn't cheesy to some people, but this guy is an all time great. I think I have my years and games right--- it's been way too long since football ended in February. Wish the guys woulda had more time for training camps, but the lockout prevented it. Anyway, enjoy!!! All you football players, especially!! Comment on my mistakes & anything else! :)

Amen! I don't know if you've read a piece on this site called "A Tale of Two Quarterbacks," but it's about the return of Michael Vick and the crash-and-burn of Brett Favre's last year. The way the author talked about Favre was hardly respectful in my opinion.

Well-written, too. I think you're very good at the short, sweet and meaningful.

Favre is a legend and I will miss him as well.
