    I heard on the radio this morning that Favre is going to retire per Jay Glazer. I don't have any link but that's what I am hearing.

    He had a good season last year. Too bad the Pack couldn't get past the Giants.

    edit: Found the link....

    Man, I have a hard time thinking that with the talent they have and his season last year that he would want to go out with the last throw fresh in his mind.

    It's a shame. Gun slingers are fun to watch and Favre epitomized the role.

    He was playing at a pretty high level too carrying the team at times. Wouldn't want my career to go out on that note either and you would think announcing fully to retire after this year that everyone would wantto send him out winning.

    If this is true Brett the game won't ever be the same without ya.

    He's done it all, enjoy your life Mr. Favre with the family and we shall see you in Canton in 2012.

    Personally, I think that last Playoff game whipped his ass. You could tell he was freezing his ass off and had no desire to be out there.

    If he does retire, I'm going to miss the heck out of that guy. He played the game to have fun and win. His personality on the field will be sorely missed.

    Having said that, I betcha he comes back. :)

    Who cares, he wasn't even that good. :sarcasm:


    Just kidding of course, I always enjoyed watching Brett play, I saw him live during that Sunday Night Game at Reliant, good times. I do think Aaron Rodgers will be ready and have a really good season.

    I heard about it this morning also. I was actually surprised he did retire, I figured he would come back after he was so close to the Super Bowl. Looks like Rodgers will finally show what he is worth, if only he could stay healthy.

    Heard he was waiting to see if the team would bring in Randy Moss. Sad day. What a storied legacy he will leave behind.

    Great QB and a great personality to go with it.
    I put only these QB's in front of him in terms of history in no particular order.

    Montana
    Elway
    Marino
    Unitas
    Brady
    Manning

    Sad day for the NFL. Good news for the Texans when we play the Pack next year.
