There is no shortage of memorable Brett Favre moments. Here are a few to get you started: Playoff heroics — Jan. 8, 1994: Favre threw a late 40-yard score to Sterling Sharpe as the Packers stunned the Lions 28-24 in an NFC Wild Card Game. The 99-yarder — Sept. 11, 1995: Favre became just the eighth player in NFL history to throw a 99-yard TD pass, hooking up with Robert Brooks during a 27-24 win at Chicago. Farewell ... or not? — Dec. 12, 2006: (pictured) An emotional Favre teared up during a postgame interview after beating the Bears in the season finale, what some thought would be his last game. Favre, though, later opted not to retire.
