    That would be interesting. I don't think many would argue that Favre is good for the franchise right now, other than selling tickets (on the road). Rodgers is their future might as well throw him to the wolves and let the offense grow together.

    after all summer with this story...now...again ?

    personally i do not care if he will retire or not but if i was a GB fan i would hope so

    SD punished him quite heavy allready in the first pre-season game

    in GB they should look for 'tomorrow' and not for 'yesterday' definitely

    If he does, it would be the final (?) scene in the last act of his career, an act with the theme of selfishness leaving a dark ugly stain on what has otherwise been a brilliant career. From announcing to the national media that it is not his job to help train his understudy, to keeping his team and his fans hanging in the wind all offseason while he contemplated his possible retirement, to finally (?) retiring during training camp when it's too late for the team to use his substantial cap dollars to improve itself in other areas, it all comes down to Brett Being Selfish.

    It seems like the preseason game is what prompted this. He needs to put his damn ego on the shelf and retire.

    That's what I was thinking. How could he do that to his 'legacy'? Come back only to retire after getting beat on in one preseason game? Makes him look like a prima dona wuss. He can't be just quitting now. (Althought it would tickle me pink).

    I hope he doesn't retire, at least not right now.
    If he does, all we will hear for the next two weeks is how great he was, how friendly he was to everyone, how he overcame obstacles (his addiction to painkillers never is mentioned), etc. The media will have a field day with Brett Favre stories, and the rest of the NFL will take a back seat.
    I secretly wish that he does retire, and no one cares. He is doing this stuff all for attention because he knows he won't get it playing QB for the awful Packers

    as someone who lived in wisconsin for most of brett favre's career, this is standard for him. he always calls wednesday press conferences during the season.
