QUOTE FROM INDIANAPOLISCOLTS HEAD COACH TONY DUNGY (on QB-Brett Favre)
"Brett Favre has been one of the special players of this generation. His competitiveness was second to none, and he was at his best in the big games. But, no matter how big the game was, he always had fun on the field. I wish him and his family the best and extend my congratulations on a great career. The NFL certainly will miss him."
QUOTE FROM INDIANAPOLISCOLTS QB-PEYTON MANNING (on QB-Brett Favre)
"While the NFL loses one of its greatest players, I join football fans everywhere in saluting Brett Favre. Brett was one of the game's unique players, and we all were fortunate to witness his remarkable 17-season career. Brett's competitive nature, his passion for the game and his ability to create plays led to outstanding accomplishments that were defined far beyond the statistical records he set. Brett's career equated into championships for Green Bay. He was the face of the Packers during his career, and he takes his rightful place among the all-time greats to play the game. Personally, I have appreciated how Brett has felt about my family and how he followed my father's career. Entering the NFL as he was in the middle of his career, I got to know Brett in a way that will be special to me always. It was an honor to share the field with him, and I hope the coming years offer continued blessings for Brett and his family."
