Green Bay Packers faithful packed Lambeu field over the weekend to welcome home longtime quarterback Brett Favre for his induction into the team’s hall of fame, and the retiring of his No. 4.

Over the course of his impressive 16-year career, Favre won a Super Bowl, was elected to 11 Pro Bowls and named NFL MVP three times, and set the record for the most passing yards in NFL history. However you measure it, Favre was truly one of the greatest players to ever step foot on a football field.

Antonio Freeman, one of Favre’s top receivers during the Packers’ Super Bowl winning season in 1996, joined SiriusXM NFL Radio and praised his former teammate and his abilities as a quarterback.

“Anytime we started a season and No. 4 was healthy, hey, we had a shot,” Freeman said. “For four years straight we were Super Bowl contenders. We were in it. We were expected to win and you don’t get that way without the little things being important to you, and that’s just who he is. He would take us after practice and study with us in house, and just dedication. It takes more than just a great athlete to be great, you got to have the dedication and he had it all.”

Bleacher Report Radio’s Ty Schalter and Jason Cole also spoke about Favre’s career.

“He’s a legend – Packers legend forever, as it should be,” Schalter said. “What he did is unprecedented in terms of being on the field, in terms of producing.”
