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.

Favre addresses whether or not Moss played a role in his decision:

He's having a press conference tomorrow at 12p

Well...here it is

PackersNews.com - Packers weigh experience, potential in free agent QB market

Quote:
The Packers this week talked to Brunell’s agent, Bruce Tollner, and expressed at least some interest in a player the Packers brought into the NFL in the fifth round of the 1993 draft. Brunell has 150 starts in his career with Jacksonville and Washington, including nine starts as recently as 2006. But his skills have diminished to where he’s strictly a backup after spending last season as the Redskins’ No. 3 quarterback. They voided his contract in February to get under the 2008 salary cap.

Tollner said Brunell wants to play this year and has three other teams that have called and, like the Packers, are sorting out their priorities for their backup spots.

“The ideal role (for Brunell) is to mentor or be there supporting the No. 1 guy and having the ability to step in and win games,” Tollner said. “That fits with a few different teams right now that I’m communicating with, and I think it makes a lot of sense at (the Packers).”

Re: Favre has decided to call it a career

Ok want to hear a crazier theory. Our boy Bram said that he(and Larry ) said there is something fishy going on because farve wasnt at the press conference with the Pack. They said it is ridiculous for a big name hof player like farve not to be with the team. Something sour along the lines of not getting Moss, not paying him(farve) enough, or even the front office wanted to get rid of farve to move on but they dont want the PR nightmare so they made him feel unwanted therefore forcing him to retire...lol

how's that for reporters with a lot of free time.
