Brett Favre, American Icon

Brett Favre cemented himself as one of the best quarterbacks to ever play the game, and as a living legend.

Favre defeated the Green Bay Packers, making himself the first player to ever beat all 32 teams in the NFL.

He holds the records for Completions, Attempts, Starts, Wins, Touchdows, and Yards.

Incredipeter King ranks Favre as the number 5 quarterback of all time. I’d argue that he’s chomping at the number 4 spot. And frankly, the top 2 guys on the list are from the 30’s and 40’s – guys who would be destroyed in today’s league.

I have always been a fan of the Packers, but when Favre left there 2 years ago, I realized I actually only liked Favre. Last year I was a Jets fan, and this year I’m a Vikings fan.

I would love to see Brett win another Superbowl.

And on a side note, former Chief Jared Allen set a new Monday Night Football record of 4.5 sacks, 1 forced fumble, and a safety. What the Chiefs were thinking getting rid of Allen is unfathomable. Jared Allen and Tony Gonzales were the heart of our team, and they ditched them both.

Anyhow, good on Jared Allen and Brett Favre!
