Brett Lorenzo Favre (pronounced /ˈfɑrv/[1]) (born on October 10, 1969 in Gulfport, Mississippi, USA) is a former American football player who was the starting quarterback for the Green Bay Packers of the National Football League (NFL) from 1992 to 2007. Favre started at the quarterback position for The University of Southern Mississippi for four years before being selected in the second round of the 1991 NFL Draft by the Atlanta Falcons. After one season with the Falcons, Favre was traded to the Green Bay Packers on February 10, 1992 for the 19th pick in the 1992 NFL Draft. He became the Packers' starting quarterback in the fourth game of the 1992 NFL season, starting every game from then on until his retirement in 2008.[2]

Favre is the only three-time AP MVP (1995-97) in NFL history and has led the Packers to two Super Bowls: a victory against the New England Patriots in Super Bowl XXXI and a loss to the Denver Broncos in Super Bowl XXXII. His records include: most career NFL touchdown passes (442), most career NFL passing yards (61,655), most career pass completions (5,377), most career pass attempts (8,758), most career NFL interceptions thrown (288), most consecutive starts among NFL quarterbacks (253; 275 total starts including playoffs), and most career victories as a starting quarterback (160).[3][4]

You will be missed!


Our Favre,
Who art in Lambeau,
Hallowed be thine arm.
The bowl you have overcome,
and it was won.
In SUPERBOWL XXXI as it started in Lambeau.
And give us this moment to

remember your achievements.
You have given us many touchdown passes.
But do not let others pass against us.
You lead us not into frustration,
But have delivered us to the valley of the sun.
For thine is the MVP, the best of the NFC,
and the glory of the Cheeseheads,
now and forever.
