This is a tribute to Green Bay Packers QB Brett Favre. First of all, I just want to say that I love him as a player and as a person. For all the years I've played against him and covered him I've never heard a fan or opposing player say one bad thing about him.

That's a pretty big compliment for a guy who routinely destroys opposing teams. He's the best leader in sports and the most respected guy in all of sports. I want him along if I'm going into a dark alley because I know he's got my back no matter what.
