Wow, Brett Farve has retires, end of an era. What a great player, probably the toughest quarterback of my lifetime.

He was a Great one..the Dude that Atlanta let get away.

My hats off to him...He's an old school legend.

I think now he should start a band with Phil Anselmo from Pantera.

I'll believe it when he's not in training camp next year. He had one of his best seasons last year. He's still got it. Plenty of time to reconsider.

WOW , I did'nt think he would , the last play of his career was a INT that cost the Packers a playoff game . Great career though and one of the classiest .

Yup Headlines on the online Milwaukee Urinal (Journal) web site. 1 and 7 in his last 8 playoff games I'm sure didn't help.

Sorry to see Brett retire. He was one tough hombre. And a hell of a quarterback.

a true legend of the game, tough as nails and the man took quite a beating over the last few years. Nice to see him go out near the top in a close title game. It is tough getting to the Superbowl and Brett must have assessed the situation and figured it unlikely.

Thanks for the memories Brett!!!!

Yeah, I'm afraid that will be the case too. I think he'll play in Miami for a couple of years. A lot warmer for them old bones. If he does come back in Green Bay, at least the Bears will have a chance to improve their winning percentage against him to above .333. Favre is currently 22-10 against Chicago. Ouch babe.

A legend and a true tough guy. Favre always gave it his all...

But one of the greatest of all time?


Not in my book...

Last season, Favre broke Dan Marino's career records for most touchdown passes and most yards passing and John Elway's record for most career victories by a starting quarterback.

Yeah, you're right. What's so great about that?

Yeah he could always pull a Roger Clemens take some HGH and come out of retirement several times.

Brett was one of the greatest in my book-any day. He won a superbowl and set many records. Let face it, he never had an amazing team-never a great RB such as Terrell Davis or a great receiver such as Jerry Rice or Marvin Harrison. He played in less than ideal weather conditions as well. Come on people, he had one of the strongest arms I have ever seen-it compared to a young Namath or Elway. He was a leader and played hurt so many times. Just his consecutive games played streak leaves me in awe and makes him one of the best ever.

In 2007 Brett was p***ed Moss did not go to Green Bay. I guess he heard the new Moss was coming back to the Pats for 3 years

How many consectutive games did he play in? He seemed to play like he was a little kid this year, I am suprised to hear he's retired, I won't be suprised if he changes his mind.

But wish him the best as the man always came to play,

Well said, never saw a QB do so much with so little over the years. To this day the best receiver he has ever had was Sterling Sharpe and he retired two years before they won the Super Bowl in 1997. He had a great team in the mid-90s, tons of free agents jumped on board, but as the injuries piled up they still had to sign Andre Rison in the middle of the season just so Favre had someone to throw to.

Since Holmgren and Ron Wolf left, the Packers were probably the most disappointing team, from a "what could have been" stand point. Favre had Donald Driver and that's about it (Bubba Franks may have been a Pro Bowler, more proof that those decisions are made by people that don't pay attention). Mike Sherman stood around as Green Bay had some of the most embarrassing, heartbreaking playoffs losses one can imagine (4th and 26, the Falcons debacle, the Rams blow out, the Viking dud). But the constant was Favre, even during 4-12 year, he held things together. Even if he was tossing pics, it wasn't for lack of trying to make something happen.

That's what makes this so disappointing, last season was the first year Favre had a stellar receiving corp, even young legs in the backfield. The Packers nearly made the Super Bowl and frankly, had they been a little more experienced, they would have. It was a season no one expected, successful yes, but still so unsatisfying - swept by the Bears, another loss at Texas Stadium, and a game-breaking pick in the NFC Championship. 13-3 wasn't too comforting, nothing left but hope for next year. Now this.

There will surely be incessant editorializing on what Brett Favre meant to the league and fans in the coming days (like this post), as the media has an unhealthy obsession with him (see Peter King), but his competitive nature was justly infectious. After 20 plus years of mediocrity, Brett Favre reinvigorated a franchise nearly single-handedly. Football and Super Bowls mean so much more to the people of Wisconsin and Green Bay fans than most places, even Texas (the Bucks and the Brewers just don't fill the time in between properly like baseballs towns like New York and Atlanta). Everyone hears the romanticizing of the small market, fan-owned, storied franchise that is Acme Packers, but it's all true, including the magic of Lambeau Field. Some franchises and fans are lucky enough to enjoy a quality, likeable player (Dan Marino, Dan Fouts, Erik Dickerson) and some are lucky enough to enjoy success for a moment (Bucaneers, Ravens). Very few get both. To have success come back to Title Town after such a drought I can not begin to explain.

It will be strange next year, whomever takes over. There always seems to be a George Lazenby before there can be a Roger Moore, the transition guy that nobody will accept. Especially with the expectations everyone had after this season's successes. I still remember watching Tim Krumrie break Don Majkowski's (who had been relatively popular then) leg on tv, and watching Brett Favre come in and immediately throw a pic, but ended up coming from behind and winning the game (which I was reminded of immediately when Tony Romo took his first snaps a year and a half ago). Definitely a sign of things to come, but who knew it would last as long as it did without a break? No other team has been lucky enough to have that since Gordie Howe. I'd never trade 3 Super Bowls with Theisman, Williams and Rypien for the nearly two decades watching Brett Favre.

While I will never forget Super Bowl XXXI (Super Bowl XXXII was forgotten long ago, never happened) I think the season that proves Favre greatness was his mostly forgotten 8-8 season under Ray Rhodes. Holmgren was gone, Ron Wolf was on his way out, Reggie White and most of the Super Bowl team were gone, barely 3 starting wide receivers, and Favre carried the team on his back through out the season. He single handedly won 3 of the 4 first games of the season in the 4th quarter, it was exhausting to watch. I believe after the 4th game he broke down in the post-game interview, he was exhausted, too. The NFL is a team sport, so you rarely see any performances like Michael Jordan's flu game where an individual can take over, but that was the most I had ever seen a single NFL player make things happen on his own. It was a disappointing season, for sure, but it still had it's glory and it's not easy knowing that Sundays will never be the same.

Still, at least the Packers don't have Matt Millen making decisions and didn't re-signed Rex Grossman. There's still plenty of hope.

Me thinks, Brett should follow Reggie's lead and come Quaterback the Panthers to a final Superbowl and then hang'em up.
Great career, Farve brought back PACKER mystic
It will interesting to see what he does.
