The NFL needs a hell of a lot more Brett Favre's. He deserves the send off he's getting by the media.
Agree 100%. Very well said.

I blame the act more on the media than Brett. He didn't set his team back one bit like many said he would IMO. More was made about the Packers being caught in the middle than was actually true. Just like people claim the media is sensationalizing his retirement, I would argue that the media was sensationalizing his impact on the teams rebuilding process and him leaving the team in a tough position.
