I will be a fan of "Brett Favre" no matter what his decisions are. He is one of the most exciting players ever to be seen in the game of football. Let him have his last glory years. I even bought a Brett Favre Vikings Jersey and I am a die hard packer fan.

Oh my God. Does he NOT know the meaning of "RETIREMENT?" It's OVER, Brett. Just leave and NEVER COME BACK, for the love of GOD.

Over It Already    

Was I the only one that thought this dude had hung it up for good? Brett - you gave us some good times, but you've got to let it go man.... getting endorsements is where you should be spending your time. You know, Cialis, Viagra, orthopedic specialty services. It's tough being a QB star. You shine brightly for awhile, but when you're 39 (which is young if you were in any other profession), it's time to watch the game from your La-z-boy.

What a joker.
He plays.
He doesn't play.
He is a fool.
He is a fool.

What else can you say? He is bored in his life. He must need to get attention. Loser.

Leave the guy alone. For once, someone is playing because they LOVE THE GAME!! You don't see Brett with gi-normous diamond earrings and gold chains begging to be noticed. He's just a down-home guy who wants to play. Age is a state of mind, not a death sentence!!!

This is so sad...he should have played out his steller career in Green Bay...unfortunately the Stooges wouldn't allow it.He WANTED to come back, but these idiots let thier giant egos and small brains interfere.Let's be realistic folks(and all you stupid "fair weather Favre fans, this man is a legend, hold every QB title there is...took us to the last game before the Super Bowl.Who wouldn't want him??Without him, we're just another faceless team. We went down the tubes after he left..and will continue in that fashion.It is BORING watching this team without him, plain ans simple.We love you Brett and miss you(the HONEST and TRUE fans of the Green N gOLD!!

Gee, I'm stunned. It never occurred to me that Favre would AGAIN come out of "retirement" to play again after swearing up, down, and sideways that he would stay retired. The thought just never occurred to me.

And there's a bridge in Brooklyn that I'd like to sell you.

I hope your old country ass ends up in a wheelchair! All you want to do is pad your stats you piece of crap. Some big linebacker or lineman is going to lay your old ass out! And I'll be laughing!
