Why talk and worry about it for months, and months, and months... Right now he's a Packer when he calls it quits he will be done... Pretty basic stuff here, every player retires Farve was great but the time is ending and I don't see why it's such a BIG DEAL.


You truly can't see why it's a big deal?

The media is in love with him. He's white, he's good-looking, he's not a thug, and he's pretty good.

I think the importance of this goes a little farther than just Favre himself - it is also about the Packers. They have been considered part of "the class" of the NFL for a very long time, and Favre is the face of the franchise. His leaving will signal the end of an era to some extent. Once he retires, the Pack will be in rebuilding mode - a mode that they haven't really been in much since the early 90s. That is why his retirement is so important.

Basically he said he doesn't know what his decision is yet, however if pressed to make the decision right now, he'd probably retire.

I think he just wants to be able to sit around and watch football on Marino's bazillion inch TV with Aikman and Esiason..


Are you sure he's not looking for a TV contract so that he can commentate or talk about football games like Aikman and Esiason? :-?

Doesn't he do this stuff every year? I'm going to wait until he has the press conference where he says what he's going to do.
