Summary

One of New York's top sports columnists chronicles the first-and final-season of the most popular player in the NFLWhen future Hall of Famer Brett Favre came out of retirement and the Packers traded him to the Jets on August 7, 2008, it was one of the biggest stories in sports annals-and the most exciting news championship-starved Gang Green fans had to cheer about in a long time. Favre's record is unparalleled: he holds records for everything from the most career touchdown passes and the most consecutive starts among NFL quarterbacks to the most career victories as a starting quarterback. This book captures the ups and downs of his bold, brief tenure with the Jets and what seems destined-at least for now-to be the swansong season of Favre's legendary NFL career. Covers all the action of Favre's 2008 season Packed with insights from author and longtime New York Post columnist, Steve Serby Gets inside the final game showdown against the quarterback Favre replaced, the Dolphin's Chad Pennington Covers playing highlights, such as the Arizona Cardinals game, in which Favre threw six touchdowns, a personal best and one fewer than the NFL recordA fascinating look at a season filled with hope, exhilaration, compelling drama and, ultimately, disappointment and despair, this book is essential reading for Favre and Jets fans, and anyone who loves football.
