Here's a link to the story broke by Fox Sports.
For the first time in awhile, I expect him to be back next year. Looks more like that accidental posting of Farve's retirement on the Packers website a week or so ago showed that the Packers knew about this (or at least that Farve was leaning towards retirement).
As much as I hated his team (the Bears main rival), I always liked the man himself.
The thought did cross my mind regarding the timing of the internet fiasco in Green Bay and the time they knew about his decision. He was a great sportman in the professional football. Fans of Brett Favre will surely miss him.
Happy retirement, Farve. I sure wish you're short stint with my Falcons would have worked out!
Some Green Bay fans are kidding themselves if they think their team will be better for having Aaron Rodgers at the helm and moving on to the future.
Good luck with that and welcome back to the pack.
Successors of John Elway, Dan Marino, Troy Aikman, Terry Bradshaw...
Good! About time he gave up this pipe-dream football career! He can now get back to the Oscar caliber acting that I know him for! Let's all take a moment to remember his stunning performance in Something About Mary and just bask in his acting glory!
He should have stayed one more year. That division is pathetic.
Maybe he'll change his mind. However, I don't think Minnesota is pathetic. If they get another WR, they've got some depth on offense other than A-Peterson and that can't hurt.
I don't care what ESPN says, because Favre retired after he found out he wasn't gonna have Randy Moss to throw to.
Someone should check to see if John Madden is taking this news okay. He's liable to be passed out on a bus somewhere.
took him awhile didn't it? Well that's good news for my Vikings. Maybe we can win against the Packers this year. I'm happy he's gone but I still respect him.
Ditto that. Well, maybe not always. I warmed up to Favre during the back half of his career..just too hard to hate on somebody that good even when he's quarterbacking your archrival past your team twice a year. I was pulling for him (and..those other 21 guys if I must) to beat Brady and Co., get a second SB ring, and retire on top.
If it is true..then godspeed and we'll see ya in Canton in a few, man.
I heard it on the Radio and I was like "damnit!"
For a while last season, I was hoping he'd take the Packers all the way and walk out on top. Woulda made for a great story.
But the Giants made for a better one.
Good for Farvre, though.
ive been a packers fan since i was 6. sucks to hear favre's retiring but he deserves to . IMO he's one of the best QBs.
This is great news. Dallas goes to Lambeau next season. Our odds of winning just tripled.
In Madden's condition, this would be likely even if the news was 'Brett Favre Rips Loud Fart.'
