Favre to retire after 17 seasons

After the incredible season that had in 07, I’m sad to see him go. But you’ve got to respect him for stepping away, if his head isn’t in the game anymore.

I’ll miss the gray haired QB from Green Bay 🙁 The 08 season just isn’t going to be the same, and the NFC North just got much weaker. So the Lions might have a chance!

GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) — After flirting with retirement for years, Brett Favre means it this time. The Green Bay Packers quarterback quit after a 17-season career in which he dazzled fans with his grit, heart and rocket of an arm.

"I know I can still play, but it’s like I told my wife, I’m just tired mentally. I’m just tired," Favre told ESPN’s Chris Mortensen in a voice mail message.
