Multiple sources are reporting today that Brett Favre has officially called it a career. Uh huh…
See, the thing is, he’s done this at least twice before. Now I know his ankle is probably still bothering him, but I just can’t imagine Favre staying on the sidelines when the season starts in September.
After another interception prevents Brett Favre’s return to the Super Bowl, talk has (of course) turned to the inevitable… Will he or won’t he retire? And at this point, after what we’ve seen from him the past couple years, the safe money should be on him returning for one last shot.
But something has me wondering this time if he isn’t ready to say goodbye for the last time. Even without a trip to the Super Bowl, he couldn’t ask for a better season than the one he had, and the odds of him repeating that are pretty slim. So maybe he should go out this way.
Then again, I’m sure all those fantasy owners of Sidney Rice, Bernard Berrian and Percy Harvin wouldn’t agree!
I still can’t get over how Favre handled himself Sunday in Green Bay… Pretty impressive if you ask me.
