Favre to retire?

Ahahaha, seeing this on the news put a smile on my face, because the Packers are bad without Favre, and it will be like before Favre, and they will be TERRIBLE. And then the Bears will win the division a bunch of times :-D .

Yeah, that would definately take some air out of the rivalry.

One more Driver quote I found:
"I would love for Brett to be my quarterback for the next seven years, if possible," Driver told Murray in the Morning and Sporting News Radio. "I know that right now he's been going through a lot with his family: his dad passed away last year; his brother-in-law passed away this year; his wife was diagnosed with breast cancer. I think one thing about it is, he wants to spend time with his family. I would love to have him come back this year, but, in my eyes, I think this season was his last year. I don't think I'll see him back next year. If he does, it would be great. But if not, then everyone knows he had to do things for his family.?


You know as a Packer fan I'd love to see the guy back, but on the other hand, with his wife Deanna's cancer and the other tragedies he's sufferred the past two years, it's probably about time for him to focus exclusively on his family.

First off, I will be very sad to see him go. He is an amazing QB and performer no matter what anyone says.

With that said,

The real question now is -What is Madden going to do if Favre retires? :-b

If the Packers don't draft McPherson in this draft, I hope they don't take Charlie Frye. Next year's draft will be chock full of amazing QBs (Leinart, Jacobs, McNeal, Leak, Whitehurst) and they can get a better player at a cheaper price.

Actually CCheese, if Favre does retire, I'd like them to give Nall a shot, and pick up a better veteran than Pederson (Johnson, Bledsoe, Garcia) to compete with him. I'm with you on the "wait until next year to grab the "QB of the future"."

I wouldn't mind seeing some of Nall, the Packers have a good history of developing QBs (although it was predominantly under Holmgren) guys like Brunell, Brooks, Warner, and Hasselbeck all played behind Favre.

Or the Lions!?!? HeHeHe! :-D

Sorry, but I've got high hopes. How's the song go? Oh, forget it, then I'll get it stuck in my head.

Crap, I just drafted Favre in the Mock Draft 1. Oh well, that's why it's a really early mock. :-[

If Favre retires and Moss is traded out of the division, the Bears just may do it!
