Re: Farve Retiring?

Apparently, this is a prescheduled press conference. He does one about every two weeks. He is not retiring. Heard this on ESPN radio.

I was kind of hoping he was retiring just to spite Peter King's big lard ass.

Art, and B. Mitch did it! What is to say a former great like B. Farve can't try the PS to see if he still has it before the big announcement?

So are you saying Favre is going to sign a 1-day contract with the Falcons?

Don't lose respect for him. He was an amazing player with alot of heart!

I think he is doing GB a favor by retiring. their coach couldnt bench him for Rodgers. You can't cut him. I would like to think that Rodgers has outplayed favre so he is stepping aside.

Favre has been an amazing teammate for over a decade, I think he deserves a little credit.

Re: Farve Retiring?

PFT says its a false alarm...

FALSE ALARM ON FAVRE

After further review, it now appears that Brett Favre's Wednesday press conference is simply a standard, weekly media get-together.

The root of the problem was that KSTP-TV in Minneapolis sold the thing as an unusual, out-of-the-norm event with this post from a couple of hours ago:

"Green Bay Packers quarterback Brett Favre will hold a news conference at 11:30 a.m. Wednesday in the Lambeau Field media auditorium.

"There's no indication at this point what the legendary Packer quarterback is going to announce. The Packers lost their first preseason game of the year by two touchdowns to the San Diego Chargers."

As it turns out, he's not expected to "announce" anything.

Sheesh. You'd think that a TV station in a rival's market not far from Wisconsin would know this.

That sounds a lot like what Stinky Breath said (Farve Retiring?)

Re: Farve Retiring?

I think he's coming to the realization that his best days and games are way behind him. It's time to hang up the spikes... Seriously, what did they do in the off-season to help him out offensively anyway?

Re: Farve Retiring?

Brett Favre makes fans long for the days when guys knew their best was behind them & rather go along struggling, just hang it up & leave on a good note. I know he wasn't able to leave on a good year, but you have to wonder if in the middle of this season if GB sucks, will he feel like playing it out? I've got a feeling he'll retire mid season.

Sorry but if he had retired halfway through camp especially after all the drama from this offseason, I would have lost some respect for him.

Re: Farve Retiring?

i still look at favre as a first ballot hall of famer, that even this season was on a team with real nfl talent could be a force in this league. all the screwing around about retirement means little to me because if the packers management decided to cut him right now, everyone and their moms would be crying foul. it is now and will always be a business first

He's going to start in front of Michael Vick for his final year as he retires with the Falcons.
