    FARVE RETIRING

    Now I was reading PFT, and they say that in GB, league officials are saying that farve is retiring today.
    Here is the story.

    FAVRE RETIRING TODAY?

    The early indications based on our discussions with league sources are that Favre will announce his retirement from the NFL at a Wednesday press conference.

    As we write this one, we're trying hard not to pull one of those "Favre will retire, unless he doesn't" routines.
    Instead, our goal is merely to share the information that we currently have.
    This isn't a report that he will retire, and if he does retire we won't claim "as first reported on PFT".
    Our goal at this point is only to inform.

    So here's what we know -- a response from one member of the organization to a direct question regarding whether Favre is calling it quits today did not have the "No way in hell!" or "I'm looking into this right now!" quality that would be expected upon hearing that The Franchise is walking away in the middle of training camp.

    Favre went back and forth in the offseason regarding whether to return for another year of football.
    Though the team was under the impression for most of the offseason that Favre was indeed coming back, Peter King of Sports Illustrated reporting earlier this week that Favre did not make a final decision until he heard former NFL quarterback Phil Simms explain on Sirius NFL Radio that Favre should play as long as he is able to play.


    The abrupt decision, if he does indeed retire, would come after a preseason game in which Favre got the potato sack treatment from the Chargers' front seven, due in large part to a young, inexperienced offensive line that is learning a new blocking scheme.

    Taking over for Favre would be 2005 first-rounder Aaron Rodgers.
    The move also likely would put the Packers in the market for a veteran quarterback.
    Kerry Collins is the most recognizable name on the shelf.

    Again, we're not saying that Favre is retiring.
    But the signs are surely pointing in that direction.


    Thanks PurpleMafia

    To be fair, the could be anything.
    When I first saw that, I was figuring that Tarvaris Jackson was going to be holding a news conference to share his blue-ribbon-winning muffin recipe with us.
    It is almost State Fair time!

    So Favre won't get the Career INT record after all...BUT Rodgers will probably break David Carr's season SACKED record!

    Hard to tell Brett Favre might be retiring by seeing "News Conference".

    The power of the title.....
