    From this NYG fan:

    Farewell to a real class act and one of the toughest athletes I've ever seen. I know for all you Pack fans that it will never be the same w/out Him.

    Exactly how i feel I cant watch highlights of that raider game or of his bears post game press conference without getting goosebumps all over my body. Every time, without fail. There it goes again, more goosebumps. Its like, you felt so bad for him and you were so worried that he would have a bad game or fall flat on his face, throw a bunch of picks or something, get benched. And then it was like magic happened. He completed about 6-7 passes in one game that i dont think i've ever seen by anyone in a single year. I was so proud to be a packer fan that night.

    The Bears post game press conference, i just wanted to give him a hug and let him know how much he was appreciated and thanks for being real.

    Hopefully he decides to un-retire or take a position on TV because he's a personality that i'd like to see more of, whether on the field or as a commentator

    4 = 1

    Funny thing is, the game I remember like it was yesterday was when we were playing the Lions in the Playoffs and he threw a late TD to Sterling Sharpe to win the game. It was an obviously broken play and Sterling and Brett just communicated to each other and it worked.

    Of all the magical moments, that one ranks high up there.

    The other was beating Seattle this year. Nobody expected much of the Packers. I expected an 8-8 or 9-7 season. Suddenly, we have a first round bye.

    We're down 14-0 early in the 1st quarter and Favre just keeps his cool, tells Ryan Grant to relax and we'd come back. Six straight TDs. That was magical.

    I wasn't too upset about losing to the Giants. I knew then and there that whomever won that game would win the SB over the Pats. I told Snap that his team would beat the Pats and I remember him thinking there was almost no way they could win. Turns out I was right.

    No regrets about the way the '07 season ended at all though. In my eyes, Favre went out the best QB to ever play the game. That's all that matters to me. Anyone can argue that point but it would go in one ear and out the other. I don't care what anyone else says right now. Favre was the greatest ever.

    Thank you Brett for all the joy you provided to my family and myself for the past 16 years.
    Today that joy is followed by the sadness of seeing you retire.

    Best of wishes to you and your family!

    Thanks for all the memories Brett. You took a franchise that was begging to win and made it happen for many years. As much as it hurts to see you go, you deserve it and I wish you and your family all the best.

    There's absolutely no doubt that you went out on top just as you said in your interview. It doesn't matter what the critics say, you went out on top.

    Thanks for a wonderful ride...it was an unbelievable one.

    I am only a rookie on this site but I figured that if I would choose this topic for my first comment. I have been a Packer/Favre fan since I remember football existing. I would watch every game I could with my father and grandfather. My 91 year-old sharp as a knife grandmother watches every game religiously. I am very sad that Brett is retiring but I owe him thanks for providing my family with those experiences which brought us all closer. It really has been an honor.

    Right NOW I'm watching the NFL Network's replay of Super Bowl XXXI. Favre just called the audible and threw it over the top to "Bad Moon" Rison. Classic. Absolutely classic.

    I can remember the night I watched it--when I was 10 years old.

    More to come--Favre Forever!

    I saw some of the Favre festivities on the TV. We had a blackout here that lasted hours, so I missed a lot of the game, interviews and highlights of his career.

    :shock: (Only if I die! :wink: :lol: )
    I agree though, great way to start your posting here Hoos! :D

    My wife just watched some of the Favre retirement conference, and she kept saying "WHY doesn't someone give the man a tissue!?!?!"

    Cheesey I didn't say Hoos would catch your reply count. I said he would "out do you". That can mean just about anything. :lol:
    Tell Mrs C that they did give him tissues and he would not use them. That is what hands and sleeves are for. Esp in Miss. :p
    As I watched (and it was a couple of days later before I had a chance) I could not help but wonder how many people shook his hand afterward. :shock:

    This is my first post I have finally found this forum. I have looked all season. I want thank number 4 for all the wonderful memories he gave me through the years of what football is supposed to be. "It's not for the money, or the fame"... but for the love of the game. I truly believe no one has ever or will ever love it the way he has and does. That's why it's been so hard for him to say goodbye. I will miss him terribly and I feel a large part of football died when he retired.
    The only game I saw him in person was the NFC Championship game. Even though we lost, I am thankful to have seen his greatness live!!
    I love you and will always think of you as the best!!
