In a sad blow to the game of football, Brett Favre, the ironman quarterback who brought a new meaning to “tough,” has decided to hang up the cleats (or some other sports related cliche) for the last time.
The move is somewhat shocking because it seemed that Favre had a great time last year as well as the Packers making a deep playoff run, being a play or two away from making it to the Super Bowl. It seemed that he was having a good time last year as well, and it seemed to be a foregone conclusion that he would come back next year.
There was some talk that perhaps the Packers not making a strong move for Randy Moss soured Brett on the organization and perhaps that is the case, as that would have been an amazing combination. If that is the case however, the Packers management might find a backlash and anger directed towards them the likes of which haven’t been seen since the Chargers drafted Ryan Leaf, but way worse.
Of course, there is still time for Favre to come back for next season, because quite frankly Aaron Rogers is going to be awful, and the Packers should do anything and everything to try to get him to come back. Come back Brett!
