Actually it's not at all for him.
There has been several comments on ESPN about it, and even Mortenson said it's not likely the major reason he's retiring, but it is a reason. Favre knew he wasn't going to get anyone in FA to help, and he likely wanted to "stack the deck" to make a run, but the packers weren't willing to do that.

I am going to miss that guy, I loved the way he played, and loved to watch him every week. He was a giant kid on the field and the toughest qb of all time bar none. It's a dark day for football today people.

Re: Favre has decided to call it a career

The Packers should be on the phone with Mark Brunell's agent right now. He'd be a good backup/mentor for Rodgers. Plus it'd be kind of cool for him to go full circle and finish things back where he started.

That's really not a bad idea. I am unsure of why Brunell hasn't retired at this point, but maybe going to a team like the Packers would keep him around 1 or 2 more years.

Re: Favre has decided to call it a career

I bet this is how a many of Giant fans are thanking Brett today:

Thanks Brett for throwing one more of the many int's you are so well known for and giving us the trip to the SB and thus the SB. Thanks man we will never forget that last bad decision you made and can remember as your last throw as an NFL QB. We will cherish that moment everytime we think of you.

Oh I forgot another reason that the Giants should thank Brett.

Thanks Brett for falling down when Strahan set the sack record and not throwing the ball away like most QB's would have done.

Stay tuned people.....There may be more to the Bret Favre saga than meets the eye. It could be that he's not finished just yet.

Re: Favre has decided to call it a career

I've watched Favre my whole life and it's been fun. I hope he can finally spend some quality time with his kids and wife.... I don't even know football without Favre but I'll keep cheering on them Packers

Just a made up question:

Would you still feel the same about Farve if some how he came back and played for another team next year or would you feel he stabbed the team in the back?

That Strahan sack was horrible. I still can't believe a stand up guy like Brett would tarnish a hallowed record like that.
Oh well, everyone skrews up, he's still the best.

okay Madden you think he left because? He only lobby for Moss last week and now that he signed with NE he retired the next day. Why we he ask for Moss one week and retire the next when he didn't get him?

Re: Favre has decided to call it a career

He's been talking about retiring for years now, it's not like this is out of the blue. As far as I know the Packers were never in any sort of serious discussions with Randy Moss, so it's not like Favre thought they had a chance of getting him and he was just hanging on until a decision was made.

Why does there always have to be some some of underlying story with some people??

Well it sounds from Brett's sources that he was ticked that GB did not make any moves in FA to help the team so he decided to retire. It also sounds like Brett left them a mesage that he was retiring and if you noticed he was not present when his retirement was announced like in most cases when a big star retires from the NFL.

Well, it's not like this has not being reported all over the place. Several news sources made that comment about the correlation between Moss signing and Favre retiring.
ESPN reported that the Eagles and Packers were "involved" in signing Moss, but the Packers were not as vocal as the Eagles were. In the end, Moss took a deal worth less than what the Packers offered although no numbers were ever released. So it's not a stretch for people to think Favre left due to inactivity in the FA market. He almost retired last year for that exact reason.
I personally feel that it was indeed a part of his decision, albeit small part. Over the years, they never took his opinion to heart and they weren't really players in the FA market like he wished. He wanted the team to stack the deck, and they didn't. Quite frankly, you can't blame the team for that either. They have good WR's, and most of them are very young. In the end, you can't tell me he still would have retired had Moss been signed, that could have rejuvenated him, but the wear and tear and mental exhaustion was just too much to return with the exact same team. Sure not getting Moss was a part or his decision, but it wasn't like he was pissed at the team and said since you didn't get Moss, I'm outta here like some suggest. He was just done.
