Brett Farve had a stellar career for the Green Bay Packers. He won them a championship, he threw an insane amount of touchdowns, and he became a Green Bay hero. His downfall came after he repetitively kept playing with his retirement.

The front office didn’t like that too much, and they decided to ship Favre to the New York Jets. He still had on one shade of green, but he couldn’t match the same success he had as a Cheesehead.
