This time it's for real. Brett Favre announced to the Packers that he is retiring from the NFL after 17 years. Favre holds almost every single major passing record in the NFL Record books. One wonders what the Falcons franchise would look like if they didn't trade Favre after one season? The Falcons selected Favre in the second round of the 2001 draft, but then Falcons coach Jerry Glanville didn't like the pick of Favre at all saying it would take a plane crash for him to put the rookie into the game. Favre attempted five passes for the Falcons and was traded to Green Bay in the offseason.
Oh what could've been.
