    Well he has played more than pretty much any other QB to play the game.
    I would imagine all prepping that goes into training camp and each game during the season can be a bit stressing.
    Stressful for both aspects - your workload and family life.
    It's not like they are going up against back yard pickup games.
    They are paid millions of dollars and are expected to play at that level....I can only imagine that doing that for as many seasons as he had could be mentally straining.
    When is enough enough?
    Should he play through 20 seasons?
    Brett Favre could cure cancer and there would be people on this site talking about what a terrible scientist he is.
    He was too rash in finding the cure and was too much of a "gunslinger".
    Pretty much every person who hates on Favre so much just wishes he would have been a Viking.
    Had he been a Viking, he would have been suspended for abusing Vicodin, like he should have been.
    haha, spoken like a true hater.

    Has nothing to do with hate. You violate the leagues policy for drug abuse & you suffer the consequences. Favre did just that & wasn't so much as fined by the league. Nothing, nadda....zip.

    Hell, look what happened to Wade Wilson when he was a fucking coach in Texas for crying out loud.

    Drug restrictions are bullshit anyway. I can't believe archaic laws like (Marijuana) Prohibition still stand.

    Cook: Favre wanted to play one more year

    But his agent, James (Bus) Cook, told me a few minutes ago that he believes Favre wants to play another year and didn't get the sense that the Packers wanted him back all that badly.
    I'm starting to get the feeling that the Favre camp was expecting far more butt kissing in the off season then they were given.

    The 3rd one in your list is primarily about one analyst tearing into Favre. Had the title been more generically titled, one could have put other reactions in there without fear of thread hijacking. That article would have fit in this thread, but not the other way around. Thus the new thread.

    The 4th one is about the post Favre era & what how the Vikings will fair in the division this year. It is not a Favre rant/praise thread. It is about the Vikings, not Favre & that is why it is in the Vikings fan forum.

    Is he having second thoughts already?
