Favre retires..........again!

26 posts in this topic

You know, I saw this coming and am not surprised, but why not retire as a Packer? He just completely hosed up his legacy and [PoorWordUsage] off a lot of Packer fans.............How many of you think he has played his last game?

Maybe he doesn't care what everyone thinks and just wanted to play the game as long as he felt like a team wanted him and he had a good chance at winning. Maybe I have already caught my biggest fish but I do it cause I like fishing. Many of these sports guys are probably the same, but everyone tells them they need to quit while on top. How would you like it if you just had the best fishing trip of your life and everyone said you should quit. I think the ones that "stay to long" do it because they love the game and the competition.

So how does this effect his options now that he's claiming retirement. Maybe he is truly done this time BUT if he decides to "un-retire", can he sign with a team without penalty to his new team or the Jets? Speculation on this will make for an interesting off-season now. I think he'd play for the Vikes if the opportunity exists.

Jets still have him under contract! So no he's not a free agent if/when he un-retires.

JeffB, I agree with some of what you posted, but my beef is with how he went about it. The Packers gave him a chance to compete for his job (once he came out of his tear filled retirement speech). Up until that point the job was still his. That is where my issue comes from. I don't want to start a huge thread like the one we had when he "retired" the first time, but had he said "I want to keep playing, just not as a Packer.", IMHO, it would have been much easier to swallow.

Pierbridge, I'm glad you like the Avatar............

IF he decides to return, he will "ask" for a release. I doubt the Jets will grant it, and he will stay retired. I am half certain he is done, and half certain he will come back.

Yes, I am trying to be funny, yet serious at the same time about the half/half scenario. Him and Ozzy Osbourne and Michael Jordan are going to go out on the re-retirement sucks tour this summer.

It was reported that his agent did ask for his release and it was denied by the Jets. I doubt we've heard the last from Brett.

I expect Favre to take a year off and then return to the NFL as the Vikings quarterback!

I was informed today (by the Vikings fans that I work with) that he now holds another record...............most retirements! grin

I hope he is done for good so he can return to Lambeau, have his jersey retired and spend the rest of his life hunting and fishing and enjoying the hall of fame.

Maybe all his antics so far the last couple of years will keep him out of the hall for a year or two like Chris Carter.

Man, sorry about being late getting in on this, but I had to do a 12 hour shift on the John Madden suicide watch, he's still with is though I am happy to say.

I think Favre will ruin his reputation more if he un-retires again. He's been milking this retirement stuff for 4 or 5 years now. He should come back as an assistant coach or something

I like JeffB's thoughts on the matter. His career is his own business, even though fans like to roar and thump their chests and talk about his place in "history," whatever that means. He's still a better quarterback than a bunch of starters in the league, and there's no doubt he could benefit the right team for another coupla years.

Shiner, just how long DO you have to use that darn avatar, anyway? Makes me shiver just thinking about it. gringrin

    • 4"-6" sucker minnows are turning walleyes on a lot of lakes right now.  Seems to be an underutilized method lately.  
    • It would probably be more accurate for you to say you simply choose not to believe it will be a problem.   What happens to your theory if interest rates rise to 5%?  
    • All depends on the district and how many years you have been a teacher.  Although MN is looking for teacher all over.. Our current district decided on keeping befits really high and seeing an increase in pay. Where my mother in-law (down in the cities) they have great benefits but there wages haven't not increased as significantly..    Although my wife is looking to open a daycare up so we knows if she will be teaching after all? 
    • You'll be fine with the door in the V.  I heard at one point that the Lake of the Woods edition was Ice Castle's most popular layout.  I know I see tons of them, but you will have to take some precautions.  I use a Towtector on my truck, which keeps the majority of the slush down.  A piece of tape or a tennis ball over the door knob is also done frequently.  Other than that, you'll have icing and freezing of your door, regardless of where you put it.  Just the nature of the doors we use.       
    • That does happen a lot and it sucks having to play those games.  I took my contract job knowing I was going to keep looking for full time work so it was really just a stop gap to get pay checks coming in and also to gain some experience in a new area and with a different company.  I think i was there less than 2 months total including the 2 week notice I gave after accepting my full time job.  Often times its easier getting a job when you're already working somewhere as you are viewed as more employable.  If you're not working then employers start to wonder why. That where a short term contract job can pay off.
    • I'm lucky enough to have the choice when I start my day, usually head in before traffic gets bad(6:30), but today I woke up and was like..........I'll wait until after rush hour(let that carp melt). We have a guy that starts at 4:30 am, and others that roll in at 10:00 am.   35W-494-Hwy100 on the way in, but I avoid 494 like the plague in the afternoon and cut through Bloomington. Adds a few minutes time that way, but it's always the same amount of time,  I hate hate hate the accordion traffic of 494. Jump on 35W right before the MN river and I have my own lane, no merging needed.   Curious to see how shutting down Hwy 169 is gonna affect things. Might roll in even earlier if need be.   Started working from home on Friday's two weeks ago, it's nice but I don't know if I would ever enjoy working from home full time. Stir crazy and lack of interaction with other folks.   Living on the south side of the metro stinks for taking trips up north. But we live with fewer meth mullets around.   We picked where we wanted to live first and then adjusted how far we were willing to travel for a job.        
    • Ya a saw that, sounds like they have played an easy schedule but you still have to pretty good to have that kind of record.
    • One could also say Koivu has been reborn, that line has been on a tear lately. I think all of them are at or near a point per game for the last 22 games. Not to mention they are doing that while usually getting the job of shutting down the other teams top line. Crazyness!
    • most people are pretty good in the shanty towns that I frequent.  the thing that pisses me off is the guys that come out with there 50 grand fish house and there 5 dollar generator.  instead of leaving it in the back of the truck where it wont bother anyone they drag it 50ft front there house set it next to me and let it buck very annoying.
    • Maybe you can help me understand something.  He mentions his wife is a teacher.  From what I have been told and through reading doc's through the MN Dept of Education, teachers generally get paid the same.  I understand there is a little "bump" for working in the cities, but doesn't the State Teachers Union dictate what teachers make to some extent?  My daughter wants to get into teaching and I was just curious.  I highly doubt a English teacher in Shakopee makes $15,000 more than a teacher in Detroit Lakes when comparing degrees and experience.  Hopefully MJ can offer some insight as well. Thanks!
