Post OT: Brett Favre will stay retired
WOW. Well, that's that. Peyton Manning can finally start catching up to all those records...

This makes our Week 2 match-up a winnable game, all of a sudden.
Quote:
Many of you scoffed at our report of uneasiness in Mankato regarding the Brett Favre situation.

Scoff no more.

Judd Zulgad of the Minneapolis Star-Tribune reports that Favre began telling team officials on Monday night that he will not return for another season.

Jay Glazer of FOX reports that Favre has begun communicating the message to teammates.

No one else seems to be picking this one up yet.. just checked ESPN.

We will see. It would be a great last exmaple of Favre's selfishness.... Minnesota has NO ONE at QB. Of course, that's their fault, too.

Seems like the media is in denial about Favre...He's retired. Don't hate, celebrate.

I know he is a prima-donna, but I have to say that I will be sad to him go. I've seen Unitas, Namath, Montana, Young, Staubach, etc and the great ones make the game exciting to watch. Favre had a good season last year behind a good team ... he should have come back for one more season. He can put some of the blame on the receiver to ease his conscious, but that was a bad pass that he threw that cost the Vikings the playoff game. Still, he has thrown more interceptions than anyone else, so, maybe his last pass should have been picked off.

I too am cautious on believing this to be true or not. he did the same thing with texts and stuff last year and look where he ended up.

Until I see T-Jack under center against the Saints then there is still the possibility Favre will be back

Rumor has it that he wants a multi-year contract and waiting to see if the Vikings will give him a guaranteed contract.

Yeah, this really irked me. For a moment I was happy for Favre, but I'm just getting so annoyed with his prima donna "everyone talk about look at me" attitude. Is it the media's fault? darn right it is, but if he'd just say what he means and mean what he says and stick with one or the other the media wouldn't have this frenzy.

Something tells me he's doing this just for the attention, and I despise him for that.

Just sent John Madden...

He will play , come back in week 3 after returning to camp late. He is just scared of week 2.

i think the Vikes threw the offer out there for more money because the fans up here would go nuts if the organization just laid back and didn't make an attempt to try and get him to come back somehow.

Don't think it's his fault at all... whoever is leaking the information from the Vikings Clubhouse should be at fault. It's not like Favre came out and publicly told everyone he's not going to retire... it's all hear say at this point.

Very true, the only official statement from Favre is that he is not retiring yet and he did not send text messages..

Maybe his teammates are messing with him by releasing false reports to the press since he thinks he is above practice...
