      I hope for his own sake he doesn't come back. He should've went out after his great 2007 but he just had to come back, he had a great career but last year he was painful to watch.

          He's done for sure, you could see his game come apart as the season wore on. He has nothing left to give a team.
          Thanks for the great moments spaced over a long career.
          And proud of it!!!

            One of the greatest to ever play the game, and the player that I have enjoyed watching the most. He is a great man, and one that the game will definitely miss.
            HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA. Oh man that was good.

              Did sabremetrics tell you that? Many of the Favre haters come from ESPN's non-stop coverage and making him out to be a prima donna.

                Nice sabremetric shot at me. And Favre is an annoying narcissist, so that removes him from good guy status.

If anything, Favre tarnished his image when he was addicted to pain killers. If that didnt do it for you then I question how much of the last two years lowered his personal image. I'm pretty sure that an addiction to pain killers will do more damage then getting extensive media coverage on a situation that many people still don't know what happened. All they know is that Favre retired and unretired and wanted to play for the Packers. He showed up at training camp for the fair chance he was promised, and was told to leave and a trade would be worked out. The media tarnished his image more than anything he has ever said or done.
                  Oh I don't know, the subpar play, the constant I'm done, I'm not done routine. Playing for the Jets, the madden cover.

                    I'd def. agree that a great deal of the haters come from ESPN's round the clock coverage, similar to that of the Yankees, Red Sox, and Cowboys. The media influences the public a lot, like it or not. People are stupid and over exposure of these teams and players will make people hate them....or love them. With that being said...Favre is a prima donna in my eyes and I dont even watch all this ESPN crap. He's always been a drama king, really.

                    I dont think anyone should have told him when to hang them up but, the entire situation was an ugly one...and a lot of the time it just seemed like he was playing in spite of the Packers. He was reportedly secluding himself from his Jets teammates in the lockeroom and was noted as being "distant". He was coming across as narcissistic and some would say that he thought that he was bigger than the game. The whole thing became to be a little much after a while.

                    I loved Brett Favre, the Qb, but really began to sour on him a little as a person. Again, I have no problem with the fact that he wanted his career to continue but, after the Packers rejected him...I'm not so sure his heart was always in the right place.

                    Thanks BoneKrusher^

                      I'm a 49ers fan, so I always hated Favre beating us in the playoffs. I can still respect him though, hell of a football player. I hardly ever watch tv, except for the draft and the actual games, so all the media stuff doesnt seem to bother me. This "tarnished his legacy" stuff is ridiculous.

                          Don't put Favre and Jordan in the same sentence please. Jordan retired from the Bulls, took a job with the Wizards, wanted to play again and he did. He never held the Bulls hostage or any of that crap.

                          Now I was sad to see him in another uniform out there but I guarantee you there are no sour grapes from Bulls fans like there are for Favre. I have 3 Packer fan buddies, die hards. One of them still loves Favre, the other two hate him. The circumstances are a little different, plus the fact that MJ was retired for 3 years before he came back. Favre never "officially" retired from the NFL.

                            Dude I am so sick of ******* espn playing this stupid ass ****! Dude we dont care that Farve retired! This is so annoying, I woke up and this was the headline my god this is the worst thing that could of happened today. I will not watch NFL live because you know they are going to kiss Farve's ass all day. Please everyone do not watch espn for at least 3 days, I know its hard but just get all youre sports stuff from here for the next 3 days. I guarantee this will still be news tomorrow. They will be interviewing random ass people, just do not watch this garbage!

                              The Packer's forced him out the door. There was no reason he couldn't take his time and decide. They didn't need to find a successor, they already had him on the roster. What Favre did wasn't going to change the Packer's offseason, so there was no reason for TT to force him into a choice.
                              I hate to advocate drugs, alcohol, violence, or insanity to anyone, but they've always worked for me.

                                Did anyone watch ESPN this morning? It was UNBEARABLE!!! I think they talked about this for at least two hours straight, stopping only for commercial.
