There are a ton of reasons why he would retire.

*The team is obviously in rebuilding mode and isn't going to be winning the Superbowl any time soon.
*They have just fired the coach that many have said his future is tied to.
*His game has fallen off, I love the guy but any Packer fan who doesn't believe this to be true is lying to you.

If he wanted to win, why would he leave the Packers where he has played his entire career (he has said he won't play anywhere else) to go to one of the few teams that is worse than the Packers?

Favre started his career in Atlanta so he can't do what Marino did.



Really? :-?


Yes. He was a 2nd round draft pick for Atlanta in 1991:

http://www.nfl.com/draft/history/years/1991

He was 3rd string and played in only 1 game (0-5, 2 INT's) and then this happened:

"The Packers general manager Ron Wolf traded a first round pick (17th overall) for Favre during the following offseason."

Pretty interesting stuff in that link. The trade almost never happened because Favre failed a physicial, but GB overruled the physical.

One of the stipulations of the Saints staying in New Orleans is getting Sherman and Favre. Interesting rumor.....

No silly...I acknowledged on page 1 that I missed that. My "really" was in regards to you telling me yet again. :-t

Sarcasm doesn't translate well on a message board.

Sorry for trying to be helpful.

I know it wouldn't happen, but can you imagine Favre coming and playing for the Bears? That'd be such an awesome image, but he'd probably throw games just to see the Bears lose and Pack win. He may not even have to throw games, anymore (sadly), with all those picks and questionable decisions with the football.
