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 am pretty sure his injuries are effecting more than he lets on.
Combine that with a season in the dumps, a terrible head coach and an owner likely to start looking toward the future, and I think Brett Favre hangs up his holsters before the Vikings game against Philadelphia this weekend. Especially since the Eagles blitz more than any team in football.
One thing is for sure, he will not stick around the rest of the season if the Minnesota Vikings decide to start Tavaris Jackson for the remainder of the season and end Favre's start streak.
I don't think he's going to retire before the end of the season regardless. Let's face it, he's making about $1,250,000.00 per game whether he starts or not. Granted, I think the Vikings will have to see what they have in Tarvaris Jackson at this point in his career, but if you were Favre, would you give up that kind of money to quit? I think a lot will depend on whether a coaching change is made this week in terms of who the starter will be going forward, but I do not expect him to retire before the end of the season.
Brett Favre will never retire (permanently). His career will end once he reaches the point where he can't find a team willing to sign him.
I don't think he is going to retire either, maybe just rest, he has nothing to prove. He is already Favre. The fans love him and they never blamed him either.
I'm a Green Bay Packers fan to so is was awesome to see them beat the Vikings again. I don't think that Brett Favre will retire before next week game but I'm thinking more on will the Vikings keep him playing or even keep him on the team. If Brett Favre is not a help to the team then it is crazy to keep him playing or even keep him on the team.
There was a time in the past when quarterbacks were switched during a game. When it bacame obvious that the game was lost, the second string QB was put in. This at least gave the starting QB some rest time while giving the 2nd QB some valuable experience.
While I like Brett Favre, he is still human, and can have bad games like anyone else. I think he will stay around until he hits his 300th consecutive game as a starter, which is only a few games away
There is much more going on behind the scenes. Ultimately, the coach is responsible for producing a well oiled machine. Childress isn't producing. Neither are our offensive and defensive coaches. This is evident in the lack of spirit of the offense and the sloppy tackling and lack of aggression on the part of the defense. There is no excuse for a team that was one game away from the superbowl last year, to deteriorate to the team they are this year.
To top this off, the Wilfs want a new stadium. Why should the public be willing to shell out that money when their team cannot show that they can sort out the drama and get back to playing like professionals. They certainly are paid enough.
Sports are out of control. It's all commercials and back stabbing any more. Change has to come!
We can only hope so. All he's done is taint
an amazing career by 'hanging' on. Time to go!
I can't see Favre volunteering to step aside from the QB starting role. His ego won't allow that.
For the Best of the TEAM...he should. Minnesota is done for this year. It is time to find a QB for vext year and the future of the franchise.
Childress needs to act like a Head Coach and bench Favre. Lol, like that will happen. Wonder if Childress will last this week!
