Farve's play and dedication was inspiring. I'm happy to see him leave only for his health reasons. I hope he enjoys his retirement this time, and he has no lingering damage to his body from what has happened this year.
but he got a raise of 25% for coming back this year... after admonishing teammates for the very same thing when he was a Packer .....

I'm sure he will be an analyst or coach or announcer...probably analyst. I couldn't imagine Favre away from the NFL. It is stamped into his brain.

Like Elway...who just became a new "gm" or something with the Broncos.

Speaking of gone, so is the "sticky" that keeps this at the top of the page beings as the Vikings season has ended. Will keep the thread open, but that will be "it" for other Favre threads. Football related talk involving Favre still will go to The Viking team thread of course. The other stuff will go here. I'm aware of the very recent allegations regarding the two former New York Jet employees. If things get goofy again with this latest bit of controversy, I'll make this a "sticky" again for a while. And that same rule will apply, no multiple threads on Brett Favre. This one will be the one.

Rumors are circulating that Farve, 41, is considering yet another comeback, this time to the Eagles, but I expect that it is pure speculation at this point. Probably just trying to drum up some excitement for the upcoming season.

Heard this on Sports radio in Philly this afternoon; apparently Reid wants him as a backup; not sure his ego would allow for that

Saw in quite a few places the Eagles are totally denying this rumor, claim they have no idea where it started.

Favre needs to give it up, now it is to the point of being rather pathetic and sad. I'm one who would rather see athletes go out at the top of their game without all the melodrama, especially living in the GB TV market and seeing 5 station coverage on his many retire/unretire moments.
