Re: Favre has decided to call it a career

Thanks for the memories Farve.

With that said thanks for making winning the NFC next year a little less difficult.

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.

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.

Who pissed in your Cheerio's today?

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

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'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.

I think he left because he played for 17 years and had the chance to go out on a winning season, having gotten his team to the NFC Championship game. Like Matty said, his retirement has been an issue for what, 3 years now? I sincerely doubt that anyone with half a brain in their head makes the decision to end their hall of fame career based upon the location of one Randy Moss. As many have already said, the packers are already much better than average in the receiver dept. This is just fodder for sports talk and columnists who don't have anything of substance to report.

I agree.

When you look at his career, what else did he have to prove? I think in his mind he proved all of his doubters of the last 2-3 years wrong, he got his team to the NFC Championship, he had one hell of a season, and he's just mentally spent. All of the conspiracy theories are fun to talk about, but in the end the most logical reasons for his decision makes the most sense.

I can't speak for all the Packer fans but FOR ME well first of all I can't even picture him in a different uniform (except the Falcons of course) but anyways if he did go to another team I would deffinately feel the same way. It couldn't take anything away from all those other moments I had watching him while I was growing up but honestly since the first day I watched football I was a little more of a "Favre fan" than a "Packer fan". I love the Packers now and all but the way he played is really the reason I loved watching the Packers since i was 9 years old. I dont think he would be stabbing the team in the back excatly and I would keep watching him but I really really doubt he'd come back for another team so hopefully i don't have to see it lol.
