    Thanks Brett for the passion you put into playing the game. From what I’ve seen of Webb, he has a similar enjoyment of the game.

    Thank you Brett Favre for the 12-4 season and 1-1 playoff run. This year was horrible but at the beginning you said “I don’t know if people will be more upset if I don’t play at all or if I don’t play as well as I did last year” and you were right brett. You gave us a few more memories and I hope you can find your way as an NFL QB Coach for the Minnesota Vikings.

    Thanks for all the effort and enthusiasm for playing the game. You are the greatest quarterback of all time. I have enjoyed watching you play for many years. The game will truelly miss you. Football need more players that play the game the way that you did. Take care Brett!!

    There will not be another display of courage, strength, and determination to give 110% as we have seen in the last 4 years by one quarterback.

    Brett Farve is the standard that all will be measured by in the previously named categories. We Viking Fans have witnessed in a winning and losing season at the hands of a living legend who in losing or winning showed us all what not just a game but what life is all about and that is Heart. You can put your heart in to what you do or you could put Farve into what you do. It is the same…thanks
    Brett for the unexpected but great last two was our privilege and we thank your family for sharing your time with us.

    Brett, Thanks for the last 20 years. Football is not going to be the same with you! You have a passion for the game like no other, which made it so fun to watch. Please take some time now to enjoy life with your beautiful family and then consider coming back either to coach or a career in sports broadcasting. You would be an asset in either career choice! Take care and thanks for all of the memories. ;-) No 1 Fan for Team Brett!

    Dear Brett,
    I do not know how football is ever going to be the same! You are awesome! I have never seen a player who has played hard and tough and with such passion as you have these last 20 years! The excitement of the game will never be the same! I was an avid Packer Fan until they left you go! I followed every game that was televised when you played for New York and now Minnesota! I wish you could play one more play today before you retire! You made these 20 years of football very fun and exciting! You are truly, truly going to be missed! I hope when they retire #4 in Green Bay I want to be there! Also thank you for signing the potrait my mother-in-law painted of you Reggie White and Robert Brooks in 1997! The picture is hanging in my son’s room! We are so proud to have it! Take Care and God bless!

    Brett, I’m literally in tears today because you couldn’t play just one more time. You’re the best, thanks for the great memories, you will be missed. I hope you will continue your professional career in the NFL either in coaching or as a journalist, if not just be happy and have a great kife!

    From a former, lifelong Packers fan from Wisconsin who is now a Vikings fan because of the shameful treatment Brett received here in “the land of the Cheeshead Kool-aid drinkers” . . . Godspeed and “Thank You” Brett.

    Be a Viking. . . in the Hall of Fame. And my hope is that you will be a Viking’s QB Coach too!

    Watching football may never be quite the same. There is, and will always be, only one “#4″

    Hey vikingsfan4life how did you get the handle it should be loser4life the way you talk. The first 11 weeks the coaching was terrible the players didnt like him.

    Brett, How weird is it to be posting my good bye to you on a Vikings website lol. Thanks to you I have come to appreciate the players on this team, there is alot of good talent on this team. I like many others wish this year could of been different but I guess God has a plan we don’t always understand. Could it be you are supposed to get your second ring coaching ? Something to think about. Whatever you decide to do now I hope you will still be involved in the game you love so much. Be it coaching or broadcasting I hope we still get to see you. Give Parker a big hug and enjoy the little guy for a bit, then get back to the NFL in some capacity. Always have and always will be a 4 fan.
    Best Wishes to you and the family.

    Sunday night I’m going over the blogs here..most of them I read is Thanking Brett Favre for the 2 years in Minnesota. As you can see by my name I have been a Favre Fan for 20 years. As I’m writing this tears are running down my face, knowing Brett 99% sure will never play again. A TRUE LEGEND IS GONE!!I feel with the season and the tabloids ..Brett has realized this is enough. The Minnesota Vikings fans for 2 years were very fortunate to have him play and had his BEST year ever in Minnesota. I am on this blog quite often
    since I converted from a Packer Fan to a Minnesota Viking Fan. It just amazes me the pple who are on here constanstly..VIKINGS4LIFE , SHAWN, FRED JONES
    how direscpectful you are of the team. Never a ty to FAVRE for a great season last year.He made no guarentees and he said it on national tv.In order for your Webb to be as great as FAVRE you have 3-4 years in the making.To bad that the fans..did not appreciate
    Favre…as they said in FOX today..they do not know of any football player as TOUGH as Favre and to play 297 consecetively..the commentors thought it was amazing!!Good luck Vickings you just lost on of the BEST!!
    TO BRETT…Thank you so much for the amazing 20 years in football. Enjoy your health and family..especially your grandson(could be the next Brett Favre)what you decide to do in your next endeavor I will support you.
    When your #4 gets retired be it Green Bay or Minnesota I plan to be there. BEST WISHES..BRETT
    #1 FAN

    Looking forward to hearing your thoughts on the brief Favre era in Minnesota. We enjoy reading your stuff.

    Dont really understand why everyone is thanking Favre for.Thank u for last season,thank you for not having the courage for knowing when you were done.Thank you for breaking our hearts for 20 years.Thank both Farve and Chilly for setting the whole franchise back 2-3 mabey even 5 years.Alls he did was waste r time,and becuase of “Favre”,we never got are franchise QB.I truelly want to thank you for letting me have even more hatered for them cheese heads.Rebuilding time,please Frazier make a play for the Stanford kid.We need to Have a future as well as a present.
    Thank you Favre for costing the Vikings 1mil a game and having the worst season of your career.Thank You Favre for not comming back!!!!

    ADD HUGHES to another disgruntled fan..who only blames the entire season on one person. Are you in prison Hugh?? do you have life in prison??You must of missed the 20 years of Favre playing football. Does Minnesota have a Superbowl ring??Whos the coach that allowed 12 men on the field last year at the NO game??Your comment here is a minority here and you are absolutey WRONG on Packer fans hating FAVRE! I am in Wisconsin and we still love Brett and we converted to Minnesota and became a fan. Minnesota just lost alot of revenue from the Favre fans. You will never find another player as TOUGH, DEDICATED to football as far is.
    After the Detroit game,,,,looks like Webb will take you to the SB next year..ROFLMA..and you know what..with that QB next year..Detroit will kill ya again.
    you need a real life Hugh and quit being so ungrateful..your sure a person who likes to hate. Its a New Year why not try to change your need to. AGAIN, BRETT…THANKS FOR 20 YEARS..YOU WERE THE BEST!!

    The best huh,Dan marino,Joe montana,Steve Young,Troy Aikman,John Elway,Danny White,Tom Brady,Peyton Manning,Fran Tarkenton,and on and on.He is 1 tough sob but the only thing is was truley the best at was throwing the cruical int. during the big game!!I dont have all that much hate,but it is concentrated to the pack and ignorant fans(like yourself)that know little to nothing about actual football!!
    Wilf and Frazier will fix our team,I have no doubt.Chilly messed up the Team,it is what it is.Facts r facts,we need a franchise Qb,not 1 that playes for his legacy an nothing else.
    Chilly was an idiot thats for sure>I LOVE THE VIKINGS AND WILL TILL THE DAY I DIE!!!Webb is not r future,but hes a great young man with talent!Andrew Luck is our future,and I hope to God the front office sees this.Ms.Wisconsin thank you so much for proving my point bout cheeseheads,no football knowledge,just ignorance!!

    Hey Ignorant Hugh…all the QBS you named have YET to match Favres record. And showing your true Viking blood..I have no reason to cheer on the Vikings anymore and so will alot of other pple here..Alot of revenue lost. THE PACK will beat your azzez for years a coming. Maybe will will see the Vikes in 50years win the SB.They didnt the first 50 years. GOT THAT Hugh
