Millions of Cheeseheads worldwide rode the same emotional roller coaster that he did every week for 16 years in Green Bay, and most fans would do it again for one Brett Lorenzo Favre.
Peyton Manning has surpassed several of No. 4’s National Football League records, and several others may do the same during the next few years. However, no one will match the iconic status or the gunslinger mentality of the quarterback from Kiln, Mississippi -- or his 336 interceptions. Favre’s toughness and kid-on-the-sandlot playing style were unmatched, at least at the QB position, and it helped the Packers reach the postseason 11 times during his stay.
Some left the Green and Gold bandwagon, and have never jumped back on, after Favre’s messy divorce from the team that ushered in the Aaron Rodgers era. But his season in New York and two years with rival Minnesota -- along with his many off-the-field transgressions, such as substance abuse issues and a sexual harassment lawsuit -- may not have been forgotten but have been forgiven by most.
