Seems like a kind of bush move announcing his retirement the same day that Favre did. But congrats to Sapp on a great career.

I could have sworn Sapp retired as soon as the season ended?

i thought he retired a few months ago, either way, two rivals retiring in the same year is kind of funny

I thought he retired years ago. jk but good. He had a good career but I still can't stand him. No class on and off the field.

He already mentioned he was retiring after the season ended.

In January, the 35-year-old Sapp posted a two-word message on his Web site: "I'M DONE!" He had told teammates and coaches his plans after the season finale against San Diego
Basically, this is the official announcement

Only fitting to see two potential first ballot HOFers go out on the same day.

How is it a bush move? There was a time when you could argue Sapp was just as good at his position as Favre was at his.

Hall of Fame? When I hear his name I think of the Jets fans chanting "Warren, Warren!" at the draft and then we took a fullback or something. boo

Jets fans:
WE WANT SAPP! WE WANT SAPP! ...oh damn he retired now...

I remember vividly his personal fouls vs. Jacksonville. So awesome.

Then of course Garrard threw a pick to Kirk Morrison and ended the yellow-flag drive.

I would agree he might have been as good at defensive tackle as Favre was at quarterback. Maybe the best interior pass rusher ever (meaning defensive tackles, not counting players like Reggie White who played defensive end and defensive tackle).

Except Sapp announced he was retired a while back, he just filed the paperwork today apparently. So they didn't retire on the same day. Still have no clue why this was reported. Does this mean ESPN will report when Favre files the necessary paperwork?

I don't know whether to laugh or cry thinking about Sapp getting ejected from the game...
