With the departure of Brett Favre (again and at least for now), it seemed right to commemorate his career in some way. While we won’t know till the fall whether this stab at retirement sticks, we can count on Favre being out of the spotlight at least through offseason work.
Here on the site, we’ll look at Favre from two perspectives. To see him relative to other quarterbacks in 2008, check out this post. Favre didn’t compare well in that context. We’ll also did a post that puts Favre in his place relative to the other quarterbacks of his era, and I can already tell you (before the research begins) that Favre will fare much better in that comparison.
