News of Brett Favre's reported retirement has to come as a pleasant surprise to the Dallas Cowboys. Favre embarrassed the Cowboys' defense in a 34-3 divisional playoff win and angered linebacker Keith Brooking with a late touchdown pass. On Tuesday afternoon, I asked Brooking for his reaction via text:
"Happy for him and his great career! 285 in a row...WOW!! Any palyer that's played a down n the NFL knows how special that is. One of the best of all time!!"
Still, I think fans around the Beast are likely rejoicing today.
