    Annual Favre retirement watch begins

    [size=13pt]Annual retirement watch begins[/size]

    It has become a tradition in Wisconsin after each NFL season: Will this be the year the venerable Packers quarterback finally calls it quits?

    GREEN BAY, WIS. – Brett Favre’s season lasted longer than anyone — even Favre — would have guessed.
    Now that it’s over, will he be back for another?..........

    For sure he'll come back in 2008 now. No way in hell he ends his career when his last play of the season is an interception which results in a loss.

    at least it gives him another year to have a complete meltdown much to the Vikes fans joy and another year delay in him being inducted into the HoF
    ;D
    Time spent annoying a Packer fan is never time wasted...

    He will be back, only I don't see him continuing to have the success he did this year.
    This was his one shot at a swan song.
    Now he is going to continue to stay on, even as his skill declines and ride the packers into the ground.

    Yeah, I'm OK with that.

    After last nights game it should be a suicide watch.
    I wonder if Brett still looks like a teenager out there having so much fun? But hes a gunslinger ya know...

    I thought Favre already said he was coming back?

    Re: Annual Favre retirement watch begins

    Hmmm, after actually reading the article it seems he's wavering.


    I remember Tarks last year it was evident that his skills were declining.
    It'll happen to Favre sooner than later if he keeps coming back.
    Favre needs to step out while he's somewhat on top.

    Tough call, probably not though because his wife knows how much he loves to play and she will be supportive of him continuing.
    I bet he continues on.
    Keep him out of MS as long as possible.

    I hope he retires, but I don't think he's going to. His interview on ESPN sounded like he was wavering though, he already knows that next year won't be as good as this year was. He doesn't want to end up like "the bears or saints."

    I get the most pissed off looks from people with my VKG 4 LFE Wisconsin license plate, and I LOVE IT!!
