Well, he is 37, but quarterbacks are known to play to 40+, wasn't Warren Moon in his 40's when he retired? Has long as he can do the job, and the Packers wanthim let him play, but if injuries start to limit his effectiveness or will hamper his quality of life down the road, then he should step aside. Oh course its easier to play when you have quality players around you.

As a Viking fan I have a hard time admitting this, but Favre is a good player. If he's still doing well there would be no reason for him to retire just yet....

 banghead   bitelip  hehe. That was hard, but I'm willing to admit it  Wink

Testaverde and Brad Johnson are older.

Either way, he can still physically do it, question is mentally. I say he plays out his contract.

edit: Holy sh!t, he has 4 years left? ehh, retract last statement.

Three key sets of factors will be involved in Farve's decision to return next year.
The first set will be his health. He is getting surgery on some part of his body in the next few days. How the surgery goes, how much damage has to be fixed, how the recovery/rehab goes will be one critical set of factors. If he cannot be at 90% of 'normal' for him then he will retire.
The second set will be if the GBP's get some new players in trades or the draft as well as keep key players that have contracts that end this season that will help the team. This year some key trades, free agents and draft picks helped the GBP's get better and keep him playing at a high level.
The third, will be if he has a chance to play well and beat some QB records.
Hopefully he will be able to make a decision by this spring.

Well, he is definitely ending this season on a high note.

According to him, yes.

After GB pasted the Bears, Favre said he's done. A year too late, but better late than never . . . .

Time to go home to Mississippi Brett, rebuild your homestead, take care of your parents and leave football to someone else. Happens to everyone.

Only question is, what will I do with my helmet picture???

I will believe it when he doesn't show up for training camp. Although its probably the smart thing to do but how many players have retired and then changed their minds? Deion, Junior, are two that come to mind real fast.

Yup, we'll see what GB offers him. Can't be too much - a city owned club you know . . .

Really though, he needs to be done. Last 1/2 of the season was reasonable. But the mistakes made early season - those were rookie errors . . ..

WHAT?! I heard he was under a lifetime contract with the Packers and can retire whenever he wants. This...coming from Packers.com last year.

Green Bay doesn't own the team, but the citizens stockholders (111,967 of them) own stock in the team, so I would call it a team owned by the community.  embarrassed  It's amazing that for awhile, it wasn't certain that Green Bay could support the team, and they played some games each season in Milwaukee. Games never looked right played at the County Stadium in beer town.

Since no dividends are paid, and per the team's by-laws the stock cannot not appreciate, I guess the only advantage to owning some shares would be the stock certificate itself. Since the stock isn't traded over any exchange I wouldn't have a clue if it has a stock code.

Not if you want to make any $$$. Packers stock offers no dividends and the stock cannot appreciate in value. Stock sales occur very rarely as well.

I heard the same thing but then later in the same interview he said he has to think about it over the coming weeks.

I don't remmeber him saying he would retire in the post game interview. All he said is that he will make a decision in the next few weeks. Although after seeing that interview, I wouldn't be surprised if he decided to leave. My gut feeling is though he comes back for one more year.



Will you watch the Cleveland Browns and the Detroit Lions on Sunday? Only if coach Eric Mangini resigned after a loss.

When I think about the interview I swear I heard him say that was his last game when Andrea Kramer asked him about taking pictures with everyone. But then he says a minute later that he hasn't decided yet and would make the decision in the coming weeks. I think he might have slipped it in as "If this is my last game" and our brains didn't register the "If."

I'm not so sure he is going to retire. Though he should. He doesn't have the team around him to make up when he just wails it into coverage and gets picked. Sure he is still better than half the QBs in the league but GB has a ways to go. He has one year tops so may as well retire.

But he's still one of the best. Look at the stats. He broke two records this year, and if you look at his individual statistics, it was not his worst year, not by a long shot.

He's had quite a few injuries, but it's never stopped him from playing. He played through a broken thumb, a busted elbow, and countless other dinks.

I admire you for admitting, I'd never say the same of a Viking or Eagles player, being the huge Packer fan I am.

Quoting ANCFlyer (Reply 6):
take care of your parents

His parent. Not plural. He had one of his greatest games ever the night after his father died. Actually, a local news announcer here got fired because after the game he said, on live TV, "Hey, maybe next week someone should kill Brett Favre's mother!" Not a nice thing to say, obviously.

I think Brett will come back, especially considering how strongly they finished this season. His rookies know how to play under him now, and he's gotten used to his new coach, and vice versa. He's broken in this team, and as long as Driver, Ferguson, and Green are still playing (and Jennings, though to a lesser extent since he's a rookie), I think Brett will want to come back. He's very likely to stay quite a few more years. I think we'll see him come onto the field with a walker or an electric wheelchair, and he'll retire if and only if the NFL officials decide to disallow that. And, personally, I'm hoping Favre plays for a long time to come. He's a great guy and a great quarterback. He's done great things for the Packers, and he really is the GB team's image that everyone recognizes.

Go Packers! (and now that they're out, I'm gonna root for the Bears, since my dad's a Chicago everything fan)

2 very good games. 2 ugly games. 4-0 record. Just what is your point?

Detroit was not ugly. The defense saved Favre's ass, yes, but not ugly.

That is my point. 4 game streak, almost into playoffs. If Brett comes back, and that 20 mil of cap is used, this could be a very dangerous team.

Watch out boys, Green Bay isn't dead.

Oh, ok. I thought you were taking a different angle on it. I know Brett is really torn on the decision, and I feel sort of torn as well. Part of me thinks the team can really be competitive, and the other sees this as a rather nice way to go out and that perhaps its time. I still can't help myself from asking for one more year, yet again!
