    Is anyone else amazed at how much older Favre looks now than he did two or three years ago? The guy is only in his mid-30s but he looks like he's 50!
    He actually looked great at the beginning of the year. This season really took it's toll.

    First of all, who is this writer? Just another windbag.

    Second, I do not like Favre. But he is not the one bringing this up that he has not made up his mind. The media are the people asking him. He is just answering their questions.

    blacksportsonline is a joke of a web site and thinks that talking smack and treating people like crap is the way to get noticed ... and that is all this person is doing.
    People are asking Favre if he has made up his mind and he just answers honestly. To come out and blast a top 5 QB of all time for struggling with one of the toughest decisions a pro athlete of his caliber has to make is just a joke.
    Sure the media loves Favre ... but he does not give them too many reasons not to ... he has played phenomenal football for 15 years ... and until last season was still putting up amazing numbers ... he has to think he still has the tools and ability, but he is stuck in a shit organization ... so it is probably an agonizing thought process for him.
    The only people who should be talking any smack and trying to pressure Favre into picking one way or the other is the Packer organization ... if they have no problem with him taking his time to decide then it really is no one elses business. At least when ESPN makes it their business ... he answers honestly and without hesitation ...

    Re: Writer calls Favre a Bold Face Liar and Attention Hog

    Pro-Football Tak has this to say...

    FANS EMOTIONALLY DETACHING FROM LORD FAVRE?

    Though it's hardly a scientific poll, readers in Wisconsin tell us that the general reaction on local talk radio to Lord Favre's most recent musings regarding retirement is that the Cheeseheads finally are beginning to accept the reality that Favre won't be back in 2006.

    And some now want him to stay away, if he's doubting his desire to get the ball in his hands with the game on the line.

    Said Favre: "There's days I wake up and say, 'You know what? I can't retire. Don't be stupid. What will I do?' There's other days, I go, 'What if it's crunch time, 2 minutes left, do you want the ball?' I don't know if I do."

    On top of everything else that has happened over the past year, the possible absence of a desire to play hard with the game on the line could be, in our view, the clincher. True competitors tolerate offseason workouts and changes in the coaching staff and adjustments to the roster and the heat of training camp and the grind of the preseason so that they can get themselves in position to make a difference with a game that matters on the line. If Favre isn't sure that he wants to embrace the biggest moments that his profession has to offer, then it's time to go before wading into months of far more mundane activities.

    110% true on this writers part..favre has been doing this for years now..the guy has a seperate private dressing room at lambeau so that he doesnt have to dress with his teammates
    People who see life as anything more than pure entertainment are missing the point.

    Re: Writer calls Favre a Bold Face Liar and Attention Hog

    I hope he does not retire, we get to face him 2 times next year and the Packers waste 10 million on him and take away money they can use to improve their team!

    So Favre do not retire and stay on for a few more years!
    What we've got here is failure to communicate.

    I like this writer. Don't have to agree, but he states his opinions and ideas with some testes. And he seems to hate Favre!

    Re: Writer calls Favre a Bold Face Liar and Attention Hog

    Favre Article

    The above link has a write up on Favre's interview and his meeting with Ted Thompson. What I found interesting was this line:

    Favre said he told Thompson if the team doesn't want to wait for him to commit to either playing the 2006 season or retiring, then he should be "cut loose."
    Almost sounds like Brett IS looking for a way out of Green Bay. I truly think he wants another shot at the title, but knows he'll never see it in Green Bay. So he wants an out that will allow him to retain his Demi-God status in cheesehead land, while also putting him with a team poised to make a run.

    If that doesn't happen, it's going to be a tug-o-war between Brett wanting another shot, and Brett wanting to keep his fan base. It'll be interesting to see which one wins.
