    You can tell he is miserable out there this year. He'd be a fool to come back for another season. Although we were saying that 3-4 years ago.

    Well, here we go again. The Packers and the Jets have all heard this song and dance before and we know it well. Now it's the Vikings turn. I bet we see Favre is a Bears jersey in 2011. You just know it's gonna happen!

    He said it was for real with the JETS and then changed his mind

    Is it still a lie or just changing his mind?

    I believe he is ALLOWED to change his mind, but to point blank say THIS RETIREMENT IS REAL then "change his mind" is lying

    Honey I will never gamble/cheat/speed/watch full house again.

    6 months later they gamble/cheat/speed/watch full house.

    a liar or just changing mind?

    Favre

    AP: It was recently learned that Brett Favre has received permission from the Minnesota Vikings to speak with the Chicago Bears front office regarding a job next season. It isn't quite clear weather if it would be a multi year deal or 1 year at a time. Brett was heard saying "I definitely am leaning towards the beer vendor position versus the janitorial engineer job". But it all remains to be seen if the Bears feel he would be able to complete the whole season at either position. More on this story as it develops.:wave:

    Hard to turn off 1 million per game. I think he'll be getting the "itch" to play towards the end of training camp next year. Think the Cowpies wouldn't be interested?

    If he does retire, and that is a big "if", considering he has pulled this retirement BS for the last 3 seasons. The problem if he does retire, people are not going to believe it. Favre, add "The Boy Who Cried Wolf" to your reading list. IF he retires, don't think for one moment that will be the last of him you'll see. I don't think he'll be reclining in an easy chair and smoking a corn cob pipe while watching westerns on TV. It's hard to get football out of your blood, I think he'd get involved in announcing/ broadcasting, or coaching, some aspect of the game. That is, IF the NFL will have him after the misconduct issues are resolved. A lot of IFs here. Not many clear answers. But that's what you get when you have Favre. He's like a box of chocolates, you never know what you're gonna get. I always hope for butter cream, but that's just me.

    Our local news just had a little tidbit of the interview on, and right after the part that BF says he won't be back for 2011 , the one guy says.."He sure enjoys the chase"
    the sportscaster says.."your talking about football right??"

    classic!
