Favre Retires, and This Time It Must Be True

I know I'm late, but I had some other business to attend to on the day Favre re-retired.

Favre Retires, and This Time It Must Be True.
Quarterback Brett Favre has told the Jets he is retiring from the N.F.L. after 18 seasons, according to his agent and the team. On Wednesday morning, Favre’s Web site linked to an article on ESPN.com, which first reported that he had decided to retire.

“I had a great conversation with Brett this morning,” Woody Johnson, the owner of the Jets, said in a statement released by the team. “Considering that he came from a totally different environment and joined our team during training camp, his performance last season was extraordinary.”
All I can say is that Favre had a rough end to the season, both physically and in the media. I'm still a Favre fan at heart.

Poor Farve, went out with a whimper instead of on top.

As much as I am biologically pre-dispositioned to hate Favre with every ounce of my soul, it is a moment to take note of when one of the icons of the game decides to retire (for real-real, not for play-play).

I won't believe this until it's the first game of the season and he isn't suited up to play. Until than, who knows. He keeps getting bored mowing his lawn every spring and I wouldn't doubt he could still get picked up by some team.

Still love Favre though even if I sided with management this last year.
