Brett, you are making a fool of yourself. We are so sick of your crying wolf that we just don't care that much anymore. You should have left on a high note, not a pathetic, starving for attention, here I am again note. Enjoy your millions and your retirement already; you've already had a career that most of us will never have, appreciate it and let it go.

10. 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!!

Green Bay didn't take him back because he said he was retiring. They wanted an answer before the draft so that they could make the picks that would suit the QB that they knew they would have. Favre preferred the drama and his temper tantrum led him to the Jets. If he had decided not to retire in the first place, the Packers would have kept him and made draft picks accordingly. Favre has no one to blame but himself for no longer being a Packer.

Whooo Hoooo If The three Stooges in Green Bay - Ted, Mark, and Mike wouldnt let him play, I say Let him play! Brett Favre is the Best QB to play the game, just check the statts!! I mean C'Mon! He can play, he has a real desire and love for football. As far as the "back and forth retire, un-retire, like brett said - ask the Media! they feed the heads of the un-willing, and those who cannot speak for themselves. If Ted Thompson didnt have ONE clue Favre may reconcider his first retirement, GB needs more than a new GM - Fire them all! and take Aaron Rodgers with them! Golden boy my ass! Think about it!.
I wish Brett the best of luck, and only hope I get a chance to see the man play the game he loves SOO much!! Mabe Harvey will take me to a game! Lve TMZ Harv. Go Brett Go !! Go Vikings! A Favre fan 4 ever! Mr. Koch. Whitewater, Wi.
