Brett Favre Retiring?

So how many times have we all heard that Favre is hanging up the cleats? I have now heard it on Mike and Mike, Cnn, and link here from Fox Sports.

Let the Alex Rodgers Era Begin - Cough

Moving to sports.

Thank god. The fans of Green bay are starting to get battered wife syndrome.

That's Aaron Rodgers. As a lifelong Cheesehead this stings a bit... sure he was spastic at all the wrong times but he always made you feel we had a chance to win.... for 17 years! I was in frickin' 7th grade when he stepped in for the Majik man. I remember that game too, I was at my grandmothers house for sunday lunch... man that seems so long ago! Thanks for the memories Brett!

Oops, Aaron it is. At least I got the first initial right!

Today he's retied. Come mini-camps...? maybe not.

Agreed, I also a lifelong Packers fan and it saddens me. Brett at times made me want to pull what is left of my hair out, but he was always fun to watch.

/salute Brett

It had to happen eventually. I have nothing but respect for the guy and, having met him twice, have absolutely no doubt that if he thinks it's time to retire it's for the best.

Anyone know if the Packers have a coaching position "open"? I could understand if Farve just wants to get out of the game and enjoy life but if he still wants to be part of the game there'd be no more fitting place than as coach. Hell, he's practically one already to the team; might as well make it official.

I felt a great disturbance in the Force, as if millions of voices suddenly cried out in terror and were suddenly silenced.

I doubt it. I think he's just going to go deep woods back in Mississippi. I could see him coaching pee-wee football though!

Yeah; that's kind of what I expect to happen too. Oh well, he'll still always be WI's favorite son.

Don't worry, Packer fans. While there may not be another Brett Favre around the corner, I'm sure you can scrounge up another Majkowski.

Dan 'The Majic Man' !
