actually, we all knew favre was going to come back, as i doubt seriously he was ever going to retire. not as long as the vikings are good enough to where he can stick it to green bay this year again. no, the reality is he just didn't want to attend training camp again. and him being brett favre and brad childress not having enough clout to make him show up to camp, it seems favre is getting exactly what he wanted. a championship caliber team with no minicamp.
im not saying it didn't have anything to do with his decision. however, at this point, i really don't believe anything that man says anymore about whether he's retiring or not. its like the boy who called out wolf all the time. he did it so many times that when a wolf finally did show up, NOBODY believed him. that's exactly how i feel about favre. i just don't believe a damn word he says anymore about whether he's retiring or not. the only way i'll truly believe he'll retire completely is if he not only declares it, AND he doesn't play for any football team until around like the 7th week of the regular season. THEN ill believe he's finally done. until then, i don't believe anything he says..
He is evidently a good salesman. He did get that 7 mil.
Many people here are tired of the indecision also. Myself included, but I can't say that what he did is totally wrong. He just got the last report from his surgeon last week. How do you answer a question until you know the results of the medical report? He kept his options open. I blame the media for most of the incessant airing of the situation. They will do anything for a story.
true, but you can't deny that favre brought this on himself. i mean back in green bay, when he was allegedly healthy, he kept constantly being indecisive about coming back or not every single freaking year that he blamed the team for forcing him to make a decision at least before the draft. something i don't think was too selfish for them to ask because if favre decides to retire, they need to get ready for a future without him. if he comes back, then they can draft to sure up their weaknesses. favre, too freaking greedy if you ask me. he needs to just retire and be done with it. if anything, i hope green bay destroys the vikings next year. although im not a packers fan, i am a fan of aaron rogers, as he's been handling the whole situation with class and dignity. two things i expect out of any athlete.
Bleed a little. . they are going to have to have a stretcher extra close to the sidelines every game with plenty of oxygen tanks. . did you see what the Saints <?> did to him the last game of the season last year. . lord have mercy. .
I hope he is donating his brain to science. . at least something good could come out of his stupidity.
Brett Favre is still in talks and trying to decide if he will play the Minnesota Vikings. I say it is time to go! Brett has become a distraction. He is a legend and WILL be in the Hall of Fame. Don't stay too long and...
As a Green Bay Packers fan, I have seen Brett Favre play for many years and this Sunday he looked terrible. His throws were almost all off target, he is incredibly immobile and he looks genuinely tired on the sidelines....
I heard on NFL Network and ESPN that Brett Favre will Not play in tonight's Minnesota Vikings game against the NY Giants.A record 297 consecutive starts ends! It is good that the team did not just put Favre out there...
