Farve Retiring?

Favre to hold news conference at 11:30 a.m.

"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."


Why else would he call a press conference?

To announce the proper spelling of his name?

He looked really bad in the clips that I saw. It's actually upsetting to watch.

He never convinced me he was 100% percent committed to the Packers or this season and if that is the case he has no business suiting up.

Re: Farve Retiring?

If he retires, do we knock Donald Driver down on our fantasy cheat sheets, or can Aaron Rodgers hit Driver just as well as Favre?

Re: Farve Retiring?

He would really be leaving the Pack in a bind if he retired. I hope he's not going to do that. I would lose some respect for him if he did.

That's true, it's kinda BS to retire now. Best to do it right after the season like Bettis did.

Yeah, after he wins a superbowl in his hometown. Wait, Gulfport, MS doesn't have an NFL franchise? That's just ludicrous!

Anyways, he'd be a HUGE jerk to do this to the team NOW. Everyone in the world was asking him since January if he was retiring or not and he wouldn't (or couldn't) give an answer.

But to do this to his team 3 weeks before the start of the season would be low for a team and fans that worshipped him for a long time, even when he was playing badly. Aaron Rodgers is not ready, if he can even play QB at the pro level.

Either way, whether he stays or goes, the Packers will be challenging the Lions for the basement of the division this year and will probably "win" it.

Re: Farve Retiring?

Whoa!

Many former NFLers sign a 1 day contract with their former teams during this time of year just to simply retire from their former team!

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?

Well, seeing Favre play last year, I could hit Driver as well as the old guy.
