He may have also suited up for the Atlanta Falcons, New York Jets, and the Minnesota Vikings but he spent most of his career in Green Bay.
It was there where he started his Iron Man streak of 297 consecutive games.
Likewise, he brought a championship to the city when they defeated the New England Patriots in Super Bowl XXXI
But the joy of playing football and his on-field improvisation could be some of the attributes that the Packers faithful will never forget about Favre.
His gung-ho style always put viewers at the edge of their seats.
Yes, he was prone to errors and interceptions.
But on the other end of the spectrum, he could also dazzle with his ability to complete passes in unconventional ways.

Favre is already there and Rodgers will be a shoo-in for Canton after he retires.
After all, he also has a Super Bowl ring and four MVP awards.
Rodgers may be more laid-back than Favre’s free-flowing approach, but he is as effective nonetheless.NEXT: Packers Insider Explains Why Sammy Watkins Has An Advantage
