The Gunslinger

“Most talented players don’t always succeed. Some don’t even make  the team. It’s more what’s inside.”
Brett Favre

Brett Favre played in the National Football League for 20 years.

He starred at Southern Mississippi prior to being drafted  by the  Atlanta Falcons.

Favre  was traded to the Green Bay Packers after his rookie season.

Favre  was the Packers quarterback for 16 years before joining the  the New York Jets and finishing his career with the Minnesota Vikings.

Favre is a three-time NFL MVP.

Favre led the Packers to two Super Bowl appearances, winning one of them.

Favre holds the record for most career touchdown passes; he also holds record for most career interceptions.

It certainly appears as if Brett Favre has retired from football.

His agent said that no team contacted him this summer.

Brett Favre has a tremendous amount of heart and he certainly is not  lacking in self confidence.

In fact, you might say that, at times, he was too confident.

For all of his achievements, he forced the issue at times, which led to  interceptions.

His accomplishments are to be commended. For all of the impressive statistics he accumulated over 20 years, the fact that he made 297 consecutive  starts at quarterback is truly incredible.

This is the most consecutive starts by any player at any position in NFL history.

I have great respect and admiration for him although I did not care for the retiring  and coming out of retirement scenarios.

He was a tough guy who won much more often than he lost.
