Excerpt:

Favre's decision has not been announced, confirmed multiple reports that the quarterback informed some people with the Vikings that he plans to walk away from the sport rather than return for another season and a possible Super Bowl run. ... There has been no official confirmation by Favre or the Vikings ... team was not ruling out the possibility of Favre continuing to play, and there was a degree of skepticism around the league because Favre is coming off a superb season and has reversed two previous decisions to retire.

Wake me up, say about Week 10, if he isn't out on the field.

So the Washington Post is the legitimate news? Looks like the same story from ESPN/Fox/ABC/etc etc etc..

Whether Favre decides to retire or ends up playing again, this guys is truly an incredibly tough athlete. It's hard to keep track of how many times he's played through injuries over the years. For the sake of the game I hope he comes back, however, if he leaves who could blame him?

I believed that Brett Favre was coming back for another season despite the divorce in Green Bay, I believed that Favre would go to the Vikings after leaving New York, and I believe that he is coming back. I don't think he cares about his sore body as much as he loves football. And Favre is a good guy, and a great role model for kids. He has been playing in the NFL ever sense I was born, or even in my moms stomach. Which shows that his body is taking a toll. But look at how close he came to going to superbowl 44. His last throw and first throw in the NFL was an interception. Do you think he will live with that for the rest of his life?

I don't. He is bound to come back and his mind will not let him leave. He has an opportunity to retire as a superbowl MVP. Tavaris Jackson can't do squat with that team, and he has proven that.

Good. The guy has worn out his welcome 10 times over and is easily the most overrated quarterback ever.

Coach has already givin a statement. A teammate that is now a Vicking that was a packer that Brett has been friends with for over 10 years spoke up. He's the one that said he talked to Brett this morning and he didnt say anything about retiring.

Family source: Favre has made no decision
