    I hope we dont have to go thru another off season of the Brett Favre Saga..I hope he either retires, or says he is going to play.

    I used to love him, but got so tired of hearing about him everynight on sportcenter, you know is Bret gonna play crap.

    I know he loves the attention, but hope he does not drag it out another year.

    i'm with you jack. I still remember the 06 superbowl when he called mariucci and made his announcement that he was "coming back" just to try to steal the attention of the superbowl publicity from the colts/bears that year. Get him back on that tractor and KEEP him there!

    Stick a fork in him!

    His last pass as a Packer was pick in the 2008 NFC Championship game vs the Giants and his last pass ever will be a pick in the NFC Championship games vs the Saints!

    I don't think he will take to long to make a decision this time. He had a great season and if he wants to come back thats fine with me

    I don't really care what he does, however, I think he should hang it up. He's over 40 and his body can't take much more! Did you see him getting creamed the whole game last night? He didn't look real good.LOL!!:laugh1:

    Me being a die hard Packers fan for life has alot to do with how I feel.IMHO Farve has been finished for four years now.He can still throw a great spiral 90% of the time , but when it's crunch time you are gonna have a man that throws cookies in desperation for anyone to grab.The Packers,Jets and now the Vikings have seen the results of what happens toward the end of a long season.Farve is one of the all time greats and he has stats to prove it.I also will never forget watching him on Monday night after his Father had passed away , it was one of the greatest games in his career.That being said it hurts my heart to see him go down like this , I am already afraid when he's sixty he won't be able to walk from all the punishment.I hope he is through but history tells me otherwise.

    Give the man his due! Had his team mates NOT fumbled so much, (twice in the red zone, I think) he would have never been in any desperation mode. I admire the man for his accomplishments, at his age! I hope he returns. If I had his money, I'd hang it up and enjoy the rest of my life living the life of Riley. Any way you slice it, he is a true champion and one of the toughest men to ever play the game.

    I agree. I personally thought the better team got beat last night. They couldn't hold on the ball to save themselves. I have a feeling that there is a sense that they didn't play up to potential last night, and have something to prove. I think he will decide to come back for one more year. He obviously loves the game to play with that kind of heart. Either way, he has my respect as one of the greatest players I have got to watch play football over the years. He is definetley a tough sob at age 40 too!..... rollo

    You can't expect to win turning the ball over 5 times, not to mention the penalty for 12 men in the huddle that took them out of field goal range. If not for that I believe that 3rd down call would have been a running play, then field goal to win

    Please, I think he will make the first of his decisions this off season a little bit after the SB, then, about 3-4 weeks from it he will change his mind only to go back on his word the following month. Like this all the way to training camp, then preseason. The we may finally get the last desicion, but maybe he will go back in his words again.

    He loves the attencion he gets from the media and fans, how many members here were rooting for Favre but not necesarilly for the Vikings? that is why he does it.

    Heck, the Vikings just lost in overtime in the NFC championship game, that's two out of the last three years for Brett. I don't know why people think he should retire, maybe jealously, because there's really no other reason. He's proven at 40 that he's darn sure tougher than any 25yr old qb in this league, and he can still play the game better than most, who knows when it all comes to an end, but until then I think he should keep doing what he likes to do and that's play pro football.

    Yes, that was the debacle that created the whole mess for the Vikings. I still have NO clue as to how that could have possibly happened with a pro team in their situation at that point in the game.

    He does not have time to piss around this year, although he is under contract for next year, if he does retire the Vikings will need to know sooner rather than later because they will have to make a move for a QB either through the draft or trade

    The man's 40 years old! His body cannot take the abuse it did from what the Saints gave him.

    He can still throw like a machine, but his legs aren't good enough.

    I can't see another team picking him up after what happened the last 2 seasons.

    There's no way he would play for any team but the Vikings

    I agree. I think he will either finish out his contract with the Vikings or retire. Hes not going to any other teams. I personally think he will probably comeback for this next year.

    when you watched him play you could tell he was having a good time. I hope he comes back.
