    This guy SHOULD HAVE retired with GREEN BAY when he was at the top of his game. Instead, he turned that into a circus and now he's at the bottom

      It's been a sad few years since he left GB. Only time will tell if all the wounds are mended between Favre, the GB Front Office and the fans in Wisconsin.

      Yeah, but as Jim Rome said on ESPN once, "It's HIS legacy.  Not ours."  Brett Favre didn't ruin his legacy, as 50 years from now or even less than 10 years from now, people won't remember his days with the Vikings.  After all, did Ali ruin his legacy when he kept boxing until he became completely brain damaged and lost to his ex training partner/protege, Larry Holmes.  Did Michael Jordan ruin his legacy coming out of retirement to play for the wizards?  did magic johnson ruin his legacy when he came out of retirement during the mid nineties to play for the lakers again?  did emmitt smith ruin his legacy by allowing the cowboys to trade him to the cardinals; instead of just opting to retire after he owned the all time rushing record. 

      The quick answer to all this is...NO. None of these athletes ruined anything in regards to their legacy because whenever sportswriters, analysts and broadcasters mention their names, they're only going to mention how great they were during their primes.  Sure, they may have a blurb about their down years, but the focus of their conversation will be in regards to how great they were.  Plus, knowing how most of america tends to believe whatever the media feeds them anyway, then it's a forgone conclusion that their legacies will remain intact.  make no mistake, brett favre's legacy is  NOT ruined. 

      the vikings on the other hand are ruined by brett's decline.  by kissing favre's proverbial a** for the last couple of seasons and not even bothering to develop a young qb to replace him, it puts a lot of trouble on the Vikings going into next year.

    His legacy is not tarnished one bit. He had his best year statistically in pro football with the vikings 2009-10 season. This guy just loves to play football and you can't blame him for that. He has some amazing records under his belt and will take others years to catch up if they play the same amount of games as he has.
