Favre's Second Denial That He's Returning

It's been almost three months since there have been some good, solid rumors that Favre's coming back, so it's time to get back on that horse. ProFootballTalk got the ball rolling last week, and now Chris Mortenson is on the case. Favre's even asked for his release! Of course, Favre has denied it.

It wouldn't surprise me if Favre is second guessing himself. He can still play, and at a very high level. His retirement shocked me, and therefore his return shouldn't shock me. But I don't think he's coming back. The explanation he gave for his retirement was similar to what Ron Wolf said when he retired back in 2000; the hours are longer than ever, and the job is just getting too hard. And Wolf has never returned to a full-time job in the NFL.
