Brett Favre Green Bay QB Retires From NFL: Doesn't Want To Play Anymore

Last week you heard it over and over again famed NFLGreen Bay Quaterback Brett Favre retired after nearly 18 years in the professional football league.

Favre's fans, along with the entire world, saw him as he tearfully announced his retirement. It's a long way from those days back home in 'ssippi playing football and baseball and getting high school letters in both sports.

Brett Favre's had a good run. The 38 year old athlete was chosen Associated Press' Most Valuable Player three-times in 1995, 1996 and 1997. He's the only player in NFL history to have the honor.

Favre has led the Packers to two Super Bowls: a victory against the New England Patriots in Super Bowl XXXI and a loss to the Denver Broncos in Super Bowl XXXII. His records include: most career NFL touchdown passes (442), most career NFL passing yards (61,655), most career pass completions (5,377), most career pass attempts (8,758), most career NFL interceptions thrown (288), most consecutive starts among NFL quarterbacks (253; 275 total starts including playoffs), and most career victories as a starting quarterback (160).

After 17 years it's no wonder the man says he doesn't want to play anymore. He can retire with a record that we would call not too shabby. To us this is like the Roberto Duran moment when during a fight he said, "No mas, no mas".
