One more reason why I love Brett Favre
The future Hall of Fame quarterback is a man's man for one.
He's talented, tough, sensitive, funny and compassionate all rolled into one.
He owns records that may never be broken including his consecutive streak of 297 games over 19 seasons as a starting quarterback.
He fought through pain, injuries and heartbreak to keep the streak alive.
Even the death of his father couldn't keep him off the field.
One day after his father died, Favre played in a Monday Night Football game in which he passed for 399 yards in a 41-7 win over Oakland on Dec. 22, 2003. He completed 73.3% of his passes and finished the game with a 154.9 passer rating - the highest in his career and just 3.4 points shy of perfection.
Favre played with so much heart that it was refreshing to watch him game after game.
Earlier in the week when Browns quarterback Colt McCoy said he called Favre for tips on the West Coast offense during the NFL lockout, I wasn't surprised to hear Favre invited McCoy to come to his home in Mississippi.
Favre even picked McCoy up at the airport.
Can you imagine?
It's just one more reason why Favre will forever be my all-time favorite NFL player.
