COLLEGE STATION -- Texas A&M head football coach Mike Sherman said he was surprised that Green Bay Packers quarterback Brett Favre announced his retirement after 17 years in the NFL today.
Sherman was the head coach of the Packers for 6 seasons during Brett's career and served another 2 years as an offensive assistant. The former Packer head coach said there will most likely never be another quarterback to come along that will bring all the attributes that made Brett Favre special.
Sherman added that of all the games he watch number 4 play in, the Monday night game in Oakland in 2004 2 days after Brett's dad passed away, was probably the one he'll remember most. Favre threw 4 touchdown passes in the game, but it was the way he handled himself and the love he showed for his team-mates, and his team-mates for him that made a lasting impression on him.
