Default Brett Farve finally retires.

For me personally it's been a long time coming. Maybe that was part of the deal of the light fine by Goodell in the Jen Sturger debacle. "Brett I'll take the heat but you're done after this season".

He has retired at the end of the last three or four seasons, only to unretire after the next season's two a day workouts have ended.

Retirement papers went into the office. His body breaking down. His legal and NFL issues. I believe it's true this time.

I think that once a body starts to break down, even one as resilient as Favre has been blessed with...then those hits get felt by him just like you or I would react. They hurt for days...and if they still hurt the following week's game, then the fun goes down the drain big-time.

Of course, this could have been written any year in the last 2 or 3, but I tend to agree with workinprOgress that this is the big IT.

He could have retired from Green Bay as a legend without the drama and with his body in much better shape.

Can't stand him, but he was a tough SOB from the bayou. Its a shame he screwed up the latter part of his career.. Wonder what his wife thinks about those text messages?

He waited one year to long. It's a shame he didn't retire as a Packer, that really tarnished his legacy. I personally think the team owners were more to blame than Favre was for leaving. I will have to say the Packer's got it right when they wanted Aaron Rodgers to be their new starting QB. The guy is playing great.

Sadly, despite the amazing career Brett has ended being the but of jokes and a sad shake of the head.

He may have hung on too long. But in those extra three or four years he made more money in salary than most of us will in a full career of working. Millions more. I'd trade millions anyday of the week for a few more aches and pains and a cranky wife. For that money I could less what people in the papers and on TV were saying.

x3 should have retired with green bay. Do these winding careers down with different teams ever work out? As for the money, he could have just opened a chain of resaurants in the GB area. Now he's burned that bridge.
