Talk to Ted (in the Head Shed) Thompson, the jerk behind the plan to sack Favre in Green Bay.

Default I'm officially / unofficially retired!

Steven Colbert said it best..."Favre has set a record for the most near retirements." He was a great ballplayer. A true gamer. A winner...but enough is enough. Go enjoy retirement at a ridiculously young age and leave football to the younger bucks.

This morning, Mike and Mike on ESPN, are predicting that Aaron Rodgers makes the Pro Bowl this year. They had nothing but great things to say about him. The Packers have moved on, and most fans don't want Brett running the offense anymore. Rodgers is the future.

And that's fine. So why are so many people ticked off at Brett? Part of moving on is shaking off the past.

Many peoples' annoyance with Favre stems precisely from his unwillingness to move on, such as when he tried to beg his way back onto the Packers after he already told them he was leaving and they had already spent considerable time and resources rebuilding around Rodgers. He burned up a lot of his goodwill when he badmouthed the team for not bending over backwards to take him back. People get irritated when athletes and celebrities who try to convert goodwill into entitlement.

My take on this .....and I'm a Packer fan from waaaay back - like watching with my dad in the 60's (tho I don't live in Wisconsin anymore)...

For crying out loud, the guy is a baby. He wouldn't know what to do with himself in retirement. He's not developed any other skills or interests (other than hunting- and you can't do that 24/7). It's pretty stupid not to have other interests (does he have a degree in anything marketable?)...

He needs serious psychological counseling - RETIREMENT counseling. And the people to do it are the other QBs who did it successfully.... Joe Montana (who almost goofed up with his move to KC)... and possibly Steve Young...

The guy simply doesn't know HOW to make the transition.

And he's gonna have the crap beat out of him this year.... hopefully not so much that he's hurt for life.

So much for going out on top...... let's watch Brett circle the drain this year (again)...

Mo, I've been a Packers fan since I was 5 years old in 1968 and I'm a Brett Favre fan too...and I totally agree with you. I wish he had retired and stay retired the first time and gone out on top. I can't find the time or energy to get wildly upset over it in either direction because I do have a lot of other things to devote time to.

I guess when you get somewhere in life based on drive and a competitive nature it's terribly hard to give up. I wouldn't know.

My mom retired from her librarian job AND her sunday school job last year for the 2nd time....they called her last week and she's going back to both jobs at 75 years old. I told her she's just like Brett.

This may sound crazy. But alot of people are beginning to say that, for whatever reason, Brett needs the money and that's why he's back. It IS possible to lose $50 - 100 million in this economy. Dumb, but it is possible.
