Brett Farve,
PLEASE COME AND HELP THE HOPELESS CHICAGO BEARS. YOU ARE A BETTER QUARTERBACK THAN ANY OF THE QUARTERBACKS THAT ARE PRESENTLY ON THE BEARS. PLEASE, PLEASE COME AND HELP THE BEARS.

They need you, Brett. PLEASE

FIRST.....i hope Favre is done...and if he changes his mind, I hope the Jets say thanks, but no thanks.!!!
Jets need to develop a QB. Clemens is not the answer. Mark Sanchez is looking pretty good right now, if they can trade up...

just my opinion

Its really quite sad, because a year or 2 ago, he was a hero for so many people. Now he comes off as a DRAMA QUEEN or a spoiled athlete who screwed over his own team. Hope he actually stays retired this time, maybe then hell get some respect back from players and fans alike.

As a Wisconsinite... I was appropriately sad last year when Favre retired... then I was annoyed with the whole drama-drama that unfolded last summer. I was so disappointed in both him and the Packers' management team. The way everything unfolded was so high school and made everyone look foolish.

Favre seems like a good guy overall, but it is time to hang it up. His heart doesn't seem to be in the game anymore and it would be such a shame to hurt his legacy further by bopping around the NFL to whoever will take him.

GO PACK!!!

Whatever. I'll believe it when I see him as a color commentator next to that old bald headed former QB dude from the Steelers. Or the guy from Miami with a toupe.

Jacki.....as a Packer Fan, i can see why the frustration with Favre. WILL-HE or WON'T-HE retire?
I think the Packers dropped the ball about three years ago, when they gave in to him.
I don't know if your QB needs more time, or if he's going to be a bust, but if he had started two or three years ago, the Packers would've had an answer by now. We, as Jets fans, are glad the drama is over. It's time for the Jets to look for a QB for the future. Pennington was not the answer. How many years does your current starter have left on his contract?

RAY LEWIS WOULD LOOK GOOD IN A JETS UNIFORM TOO

Daveedt - I don't know how much time Rodgers has left on his contract, but I know that he'll be around for a few more years at least.

He will be a good, solid QB, I think. His first season was better than or as good as Favre's first season as a Packer. He just doesn't have Favre's charisma and doesn't really give good interviews. However, Packerworld is coming to accept him. And, I really hope they put good players around him.

Yeah, Jets fans can breathe a sigh of relief if Favre is going to really retire. It will be nice to not have to deal with "Tracker Watch", let me tell you!! And, I agree to a point. I mean, Favre had a great run in 2007 in Green Bay, but the 4-12 season in 2006 was... well, I think 'nuff said on that.

I think that its about time that Favre finally retired!! I'm a hard core packers fan and when Favre retired i was sad... as well as most of Wisconsin. (from what i think)
But when the whole Favre comming back... I wanted him gone! Its been since like 2004 when he said that this might be the last game that ill ever play and i was like OK dude make up your freakin mind!
I think that Favre should go! He is and will probably always be the best QB but he needs to step put of the spotlight! Everyone will remember him he doesnt need anymore big stories anymore!


O and the Bears still suck....
