    First Ballot Hall of famer. I wished it was him beating the patriots and riding off into the sunset, but he became the face of Green Bay.

        Let the Aaron Rodgers era begin!



        http://msn.foxsports.com/nfl/story/7...ll-it-a-career


        Jay Glazer of FOXSports.com reports that Packers quarterback Brett Favre is retiring.

        The news also is being reported by the Biloxi Sun Herald, citing Favre's brother, Scott, as the source.

        We'll let someone else figure out who had it first.

        Glazer says that it's believed that Favre has informed the team of the decision within the past few days, and that it's not known when the team will announce it. (Maybe they were getting ready to do so last week when that "breaking news" item regarding Favre's decision to call it quits showed up on their live web site.)

        But the door isn't completely closed. Writes Glazer: "Favre has made his decision and will likely make it publicly known soon. However, like in the past, Favre could wake up any day now and decide to change his mind, although that doesn't seem likely at this point."

        It's amazing to us that Favre would quit after turning back the clock with a stellar 2007 campaign, especially since it ended with an interception that prevented Favre and the Packers from returning to the Super Bowl. His career deserves a much better final act, and we'll suspect that he'll be haunted by the final moments of that game for years to come.

              Mortinson was speculating on ESPN saying that as soon as Moss had resigned with the Patriots, Farve informed the Packers that he was done!!

                  Great observation!

                  This also brings to light a situation I brought up when Corey Williams was traded to Cleveland....

                  Packers need a QB now, I doubt they waste a pick on a rookie, and I doubt they still have confidence in Aaron Rodgers, so that tells me they will go ahead and trade for Derek Anderson, possibly pick #30 for him. This is why Williams was let go for a 2nd rounder and Browns only gave Anderson 3 year deal.....


                  I'm just saying

                    I won't believe it until I hear from a Packers personal, or Favre.

                      Heh my cellphone is going off like mad with alerts all about Brett Favre.

                      Just imagine though, no more Kornholer Favre crushes on MNF. Maybe Brett retired because Tony was moving in on his woman!

                          Your right on. Rumours last said that Farvre would hang it up if the Packers did not sign or attempt to sign Randy Moss. I guess this may have had an impact. Regardless, what a career.......what is John Madden going to do now?

                            FOX sports is reporting Favre is retiring.

                            http://msn.foxsports.com/nfl/story/7870944?MSNHPHMA#

                            The most storied quarterback career in NFL history is coming to a close.
                            FOXSports.com has learned that legendary quarterback Brett Favre has decided to retire. In fact, it's believed he informed the Packers of his decision within the last few days, although it's unclear when Favre and the team will make his decision known.
                            So barring an unforeseen last-minute change of heart, Favre will leave the game after 17 years, during which he built himself into a household name and a figure synonymous with grit, toughness and perseverance.

                            Neither GM Ted Thompson nor head coach Mike McCarthy returned several calls left by FOXSports.com for confirmation.

                            After flirting with retirement for the last few years, Favre will finally go out on the heels of one of the best seasons of his career.

                            He led the Packers to the NFC Championship Game after passing for a stunning 4,155 yards, looking very much at times like a younger version of himself. In addition he threw 28 TDs — including an overtime Hail Mary pass to beat Denver in front of a national audience — and had a 95.7 quarterback rating. He was also voted into the Pro Bowl following the 2007 season but declined to go.

                            Favre leaves the game as the all-time record holder in several categories including wins, passing yards, touchdowns and consecutive games started. A three-time MVP, The southern swashbuckler won fans over with his carefree style that epitomized the "gunslinger" moniker and made fans out of everyone from the guy next door to those already enshrined in Canton.

                            If in fact, Favre does not have a change of heart, his final pass of a Hall of Fame Career was an interception by the Giants' Corey Webster, setting up New York's overtime win in the NFC title game.


                            For the last few years, the question of whether or not Favre was going to retire has been the most debated topic during the off-season. Two years ago he let his decision linger as reports both that he was returning and that he was retiring emerged. In fact, at one point he was supposedly going to announce his retirement at his charity golf tournament. Of course, those reports ultimately proved to be false.

                            Then after his final game of the 2006 season, a tearing and emotional Favre appeared on national TV and seemed to be bidding the game adieu. But once again, he had a change of heart and came back for what proved to be one heck of a final hurrah.

                            This time, Favre has made his decision and will likely make it publicly known soon. However, like in the past, Favre could wake up any day now and decide to change his mind, although that doesn't seem likely at this point.

                            The team will now shift to Aaron Rodgers, a former first-round pick, who has had few opportunities to play since being selected with the 24th overall pick in the 2005 draft. But when Favre was injured in a Thursday night game against Dallas this past season, Rodgers looked pretty good in relief. The former Cal star completed 18 of 26 passes for 201 yards and a touchdown — the first of his career — and nearly rallied the Packers to the win.
