Should Favre (Really) Retire Now?


Has the time Finally come for Favre to hang it up for good? My thinking is it has, and there are several key factors pointing me in that direction.


1) The Vikings are not going to make the playoffs......there I said it here is the    proof.

So even if they win a game I don’t see them winning they are Still an 8-8 team that does not make they playoffs. That is the only reason Favre is back this year to recover "last years magic" and get one more ring. That is not happening this year.



2) Injuries

 Lets face the ankle is now officially past the point of no return…..It was a small  manageable issue going into last nights game but after the hit he took on the last INT  he couldn’t even put weight on it.

We all know what happens when Brett plays hurt (see the 2nd half of the 2008 Jets season). This ankle WILL NOT get better this season and pretending that it will hurts the team, whatever is left of his legacy, and now the ankle will hinder him more of the rest of his life and for what?......NOTHING.



3) Penisgate

 I hate to even bring this up however…….now that it looks like Jenn Sterger is going to talk to the NFL about this in my mind it’s an 85% chance Favre gets at least a 2 game suspension  for this tomfoolery. To have a clearly amazing ironman run snapped by this issue would be nothing less than devastating for Brett and the NFL in general.



If Brett truly cared about his health, marriage, and his legacy he would hold a presser tell the world for health and personal reason he will be retiring immediately go back to Miss. Work on his marriage, enjoy his grandkid, and get healthy.
