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.

Joe Kapp had a lot better chance of being a Superbowl MVP with the Vikings than Favre ever will.

And even he couldn't do it.

Family source: Favre has made no decision

Family source: Favre has made no decision - Brett Favre - SunHerald.com (http://www.sunherald.com/2010/08/02/2378261/family-source-favre-has-made-no.html - broken link)

Espn is reporting hes retiring and also reporting its not been confirmed
You read the article. Who's the "family source?" Really, that's no better than the sources ESPN or the Minny Star Tribune have.

So is he coming back, not coming back, or no decision? Or is he not coming back until later in the season? Is Favre telling EVERYBODY including his family different stories? How can anyone be sure? ESPN has it rough. You don't give them credit for being right as often as they are, and if they're wrong once, you hammer them... The wind blows hardest at the top...

His brother

According to Steve Mariucci, who was just texting Favre minutes ago has said that, Brett Favre HAS NOT given anyone a decision if he will return or not, and also said that he is trying to get healthy because he still has concerns about his ankle. That was said during nfl live

Even espn has admitted its not confirmed. From all the reports from everyone thats been interviewed Favre has not told anyone anything. Since everyone is saying the same thing that Favre has not told them he is retiring.

I am not saying they arent right most of the time. Just saying before they report something they should confirm it. They spent what 4 hours today talking up Favre retired and Favre hasnt said hes retiring.

Not sure why you have an issue with thinking they should confirm something before they report it

Mariucci: Favre not retiring ... yet


Video of the interview
NFL Videos: Mariucci: Favre not retiring ... yet

How many more interviews must be provided before people realize that people jumped the gun along with espn. People should have confirmed this.

We've wasted almost a day on Favre retiring when he hasn't.

Not sure why you're putting words in my mouth... I never said I had an issue with it.

He'll just rig an artificial leg with foot to his body that's all.

He'll become the first 3 legged QB.

I don't take anything he says seriously, till I see him not play for the whole I don't believe it. If so, then he'll come out of retirement next year.

gotta agree.

I bet he's happy as can be that the media is focusing on him again.

People with big egos like to be in the media headlines.

I'm not a Vikes fan but I disagree.

Favre's body wears down over the course of the season and *in general* he starts out very good but by the end get's erratic and quality drops off. Don't get me wrong, I'm not dogging on him but he is not a kid anymore and both he and the Vikes were not smart enough to rest him through the softer part of the season to preserve him for the playoffs while getting his backups experience. Really, do you need him to beat teams like Detroit?

This might have been the best thing to happen to the Vikings...but then again, he is still *deciding* lol...makes the Packers look smarter and smarter for thanking him and moving on a few years ago when he started waffling on them and hurting the organization.

Vikings are showing desperation. 16 million plus incentives. They know they need him. I bet he ends up coming back when training camp is over.

Yes.

I watched Around the Horn yesterday and one of the guys said Favre walked right past him after the loss to NO.

He stated Favre looked like an old man.

You can delay aging, not prevent it.

The Vikings ( by hitching their wagon to Favre ) have denied it.
The recent draft was proof of that. Maybe they thought if they drafted a QB, it would hurt Favre's feelings.
