Why did he retire, who knows why he did, but I can speculate that this last season was a good one and he could continue, if he wanted too. I did hear that physically, he was okay. But mentally, he was tired. Plus it is not like he has to worry about money. As for the broadcasting, not long, even the bad ones get contracts a year or two out of retirement.

No one's mentioned the Oscar-worthy acting career he has ahead of him?


In all seriousness, although this certainly didn't deserve its own thread, my hat's off to Brett. He may be the most perfect example of an "all American" NFL player the league has ever seen. I had the utmost respect for his competitiveness, grit, character, and talent on the field. He was one of the few players these days that I actually willingly paid to see play.

^ haha that would be pretty awesome if he came back before the season starts, as I am a huge packer fan. But, not goin to happen as much as i'd like it to,


Definatly was a very sad day yesterday seeing one of my heros retire that I had watched play and been a fan of since I was 5.

I am not a Brett Favre fan, but his record for most consecutive games at QB is impressive.


Lets not forget that no one has thrown more interceptions in NFL history than Brett Favre.


Yeah, but no one has thrown more attempts, completions, yards, touchdowns, had as many three touchdown games, won more games as starting quarterback, won more NFL MVP awards, etc. He was a gunslinger and risk taker and made a lot of plays out of nothing, which did lead to a bunch of interceptions. If he had had a stable of wide receivers like Manning or Brady has, I doubt he would set that record. He averaged only 17 (Peyton Manning is currently avg 15.3 per year) interceptions per year (Tony Romo, Drew Brees, and Eli Manning all threw more than 17 this year.) and he played for 17 seasons, so of course he had the chance to break the record.

^ All excellent points. A look at the top 50 all-time MLB strikeout leaders would back this up. You miss 100% of the shots you never take. Look at how many Hall of Famers, MVPs, and All-Stars are on that list.

That's not speculation. It's a fact.


As for retirement, it's long been known the Brett FaVRe needs to be the center of attention, and is a bit of records whore. He got his records this past year, now he's done.


I wouldn't be surprised if he's back before the end of the year.
