      I think he is done for the season. Both games against Green Bay are done, the playoffs are out of reach and he is pretty banged up.

      He won't retire until the season is over, because, let's face it, he gets paid $1 Million + every week he stays in the league. But, it looks like the end of an era is approaching in the NFL.

      I am a lifetime Green Bay fan and once HUGE fan of Brett Favre, so it is a little bittersweet, but, I think as time passes he will come back to the Packers, all will be resolved and these last few years can be put behind us GB fans.

    He probably shouldn't. Although he had a couple great games this season, at this point it's pretty clear that he can't be consistently effective. Add to that the fact that he's averaging about 1 new injury per game and it's pretty clear he's done. His last injury was actually pretty rare, so I'm not sure how well a QB can recovery from that. He injured tissue that connects the shoulder to the breastplate, which is usually an injury that occurs when drivers crash their car and slam their chest into the steering wheel.

    Well he is not starting, the streak is over and now he can retire. I hope he does for his own sake.

    The news are declaring his reign is over.
    Personally, I think he should have stepped down gracefully last year. This feels so... messy, somehow.

    I'm watching the Vikes play now and they better hope he heals fast.

    I don't believe he'll retire until no one will hire him.

    I hope he finally retires but I like to see the Bears stick it to him next Monday night.

    I think we all want to see him do good but with this last injury, I have to say he needs to retire. I love the way he plays like a kid out there. You know this sport means the world to him. If he steps down, he should join some NFL broadcasters.

    He's going to be done. I've seen a number of people say that they believe he is going to keep playing until nobody will take him on anymore. I don't necessarily agree with that at all. This season has been a disaster for him almost more so from an injury standpoint than an effectiveness standpoint. He's just not going to put himself through it again. It doesn't really matter though because it has come to the point where no team would pick him up. All of the contending teams obviously have good QBs already and the young and rebuilding teams are not going to do so with a beat up 41 year old QB. He wouldn't take a job with a team that wouldn't contend anyways.

    I say kudos to him for being a warrior for so long. He may have been a QB that threw a lot of games away with costly INTs, but with him as a QB his teams always had a chance to win and you could feel confident they would win week in and week out.

    I am a fan of Favre and he will always be one of the best QB ever, one who played with enthusiasm and gave his all to every game.

    Favre is still sharp . His mind can perform but his body cannot anymore.That he has made it this far is already a miracle. I have come to the conclusion that I think Favre is scared to let go because this is the only thing he knows how to do. I used to think it was his ego. But for his own good it's time to pack it in.

    Favre needs to go home and stay home. I'm sick of the soap opera. He is such an attention whore. I have lost all respect for Favre over the last two years. Bye bye Brett.

    I think he's stayed around way too long.  He should have gone out when he left GB and was still in his glory.  Watching the slow death of his career that he's chosen for himself now is torture.  And this has nothing to do with anything except that I have to say it... he so needs to shave. That nasty stubble he's got going on makes him look so old and grizzled.  Every time I see him I just want to toss some spare change into his helmet.

    I think he's done. He's completely worn out his welcome in football, and even his respect among his team mates is waning from what I can determine. The other team's main ambition was to take him out, and they did, and now he can be on the Injured Reserve list and collect a huge salary with benefits for doing nothing.

    He is and was and will be a spoiled brat who makes a lot of noise. It kind of ruins the fact that he is/was so able and talented. At least for me it does.

    He should have retired last year, or the year before that, or the year before that, or...wait, he did!  Then, he changed his mind. hmm

    Brett Favre should have accepted the fact that he's no longer twenty-something, retired with full glory for his accomplishments, and let the newer & younger players have the field to 'try' and beat his record.  As it is, he's like the #1 record holder, right?  After this season, he'll be the laughing stock #1 record holder who didn't understand the concept of a washed up has-been before becoming one.

    (sorry, I'm SICK TO DEATH of hearing about BF!!)

    Love the above comment....Brett Who? lol Some folks live where they got other football matters to worry about...that are more pressin'. Give the guy his kudos and ask him to politely leave stage right...not in shame...but for all he's accomplished. Then, let the younger ones come in and define the next era of the Sport...for Pete's Sake!

      Ain't gonna happen, for Pete or anyone else's sake. It's gonna be an ugly breakup with some post-relationship stalking.
