if you think this sounds like a good idea, go back to extremeskins
Can't happen. If he "un-retires" he is still under contract with GB. They own the rights to his services. So he would have to be released or traded.

Remember all the flack with Jake Plummer last summer? He got traded to Tampa but did not want to play there, so he "retired". If he comes back from retirement, the Bucs still own the rights to him and he either plays there or gets released or traded.

With a 17 year career under his belt he's got plenty of other memories that trump his last throw, including a Super Bowl ring.

It's gonna be different seeing a different quarterback trot out for the Packers next year, but all good things must come to an end. I'm curious to see if they are gonna stick with Aaron Rodgers or go a different route.

Re: Favre has decided to call it a career

Thanks for all the good games Brett.

Do you think he'll go the commentator route?

Good bye Brett. Easily one of the best QBs of all time, a good guy, and a legend for the NFL. Ill miss seeing his highlights every week.

It's kind of appropriate if you look back over his career. He always was a risk taker...

At least we won't be subjected to months of 'will he or won't he' babble like the past 2 years..

Re: Favre has decided to call it a career

Congrats Mr. Favre on a great career. Walk away on your own terms and take the next flight to Canton. You will be missed by all football fans (except maybe the Bears and Vikings fans).
