    I think after 1 game he saw how bad that O-line is and he has had enough!

    He knows that he will get killed if he plays and so he is going to retire even tho they have more talent than any other team he has played on.

    Good riddance but I am bummed that our D-line will not be able to sack him 7 times in each game, and that our D-backs lose out on 10 easy interceptions!



    Hello Mr Rogers and welcome to our neighborhood!
    I would like to introduce you to some of your new neighbors Erasmus, kenechi, K-Will and Phat Pat you will get to know them personally this season!
    What we've got here is failure to communicate.

    Re: News Conference

    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

    That would indeed be one ungraceful exit.
    It kind of reminds me of last year when I took a certain math class at CMU.
    I walked in, sat through one class period and said "not a chance".
    I dropped the class the next day.
    I really think Favre had the same feeling during the game against the Chargers.

    Dedicated to Mamma Favre and Daddy Madden:

    Tenement slum
    Ooh, ooh, ooh....aaaahhh

    You think that I don't feel love
    What I feel for you is real love
    In other's eyes I see reflected
    A hurt, scorned, rejected

    Love child
    Never meant to be
    Love Child
    Born in poverty
    Love Child
    Never meant to be
    Love Child
    Take a look at me

    Started my life
    In a old, cold, run-down tenament slum (tenement slum)
    My father left he never even married mama
    I shared the guilt my mama knew
    So afraid that others knew I had no name

    This love we're contemplatin'
    Is worth the pain of waitin'
    We'll only end up hatin'
    The child we may be creatin'

    Love Child
    Never meant to be
    Love Child
    (Scorned by) Society
    Love Child
    Always second best
    Love Child
    (Different from) Different from the rest

    (Hold on hold on just a little bit longer) Mmmmm baby
    (Hold on hold on just a little bit longer) Mmmmm baby

    I started school
    And a worn, torn dress that somebody threw out
    (Somebody threw out)
    I knew the way it felt to always live in doubt
    To be without the simple things
    So afraid my friends would see the guilt in me

    Don't think that I don't need ya
    Don't think I don't want to please ya
    But no child of mine will be bearing
    The name of shame I've been wearing

    Love Child
    Love Child
    Never quite as good
    Afraid, ashamed
    Misunderstood

    But I'll always love you
    Always love you

    I'll always love you
    Always love you
    BANNED OR DEAD...I'LL TAKE EITHER ONE

    If it is a retirement, then I think we can say with a certain authority that Favre is a VERY selfish individual.

    He should have come to this decision on January 1st 2006, not almost 3 weeks into training camp with merely 3 weeks til the regular season. As it is, as a Viking fan, I'm rubbing my hands with glee at the turmoil this would throw the Pack into.

    Plus the Island is packed
