It was only a matter of time for one of the greatest QB’s of all time. I’m actually surprised he wasn’t considered the very year he retired. Gunslinger is 1 of 6 players to win AP most Valuable Player, and the Super Bowl at the same time, winning both three years in a row. He’s been to 8 divisional championships and 5 NFC championships, also taking the Packers to two Super Bowl appearances. He holds the record for most completions, most career pass attempts, most career interceptions thrown, most consecutive starts by a player, most career victories as a starting QB, most sacked, and the most fumbles. He retires the NFL’s All-Time leader in passing yards and passing touchdowns, both records were broken by Peyton Manning.
“There was no debate over Brett Favre’s Pro Football Hall of Fame candidacy. When it came time for the HOF committee to discuss The Gunslinger’s worthiness during Saturday’s marathon meeting, the debate lasted nine seconds, per NFL Media’s Steve Wyche. Charean Williams, a voter from the Fort Worth Star-Telegram, noted it was actually six seconds.”
