    It was postponed. Brett is going back to Mississippi with his family before having surgery.

    Chris Mortensen / son reported it on NFL Live about half hour ago.


    If there was a link, I'd have provided it. Unfortunately, as of now, I don't believe its been reported via newspapers yet.

    I wish he had done it. I would have taken that as a positive sign.

    I read that he put off having surgery because he thought the best place to rehab was in GreenBay and all he wanted to do was go home to Mississippi to spend time with his family. This was in an article I came across.

    i hate speculating (because i usually read WAY too much into things) but i took his desire to get the surgery right away as a sign that he might come back. i wonder when (or if) he will get it. He has said that the 3 hours on sunday is the easy part, the hard part is during the week, and the offseason. i hoped this surgery would help him feel better in order to keep playing.

    I think Brett Favre is totally burned out and is more than likely on the verge of announcing his retirment. I thought he did that already when he talked to that chick right after the game and then had second thoughts when he got in the locker room. He looks to me like a man that has had enough. He knows he can still play but just doesn't want too.

    I also believe he will regret his decision if he retires. He going to regret not getting those significant records.

    as heather stated..Brett sat down with his pilot David for 2 hours and said he wanted to rehab in greenbay but wanted to spend time with his family 1st..

    This surgery has been delayed for many years, which tells me so to delay it again isnt a big deal...

    OHHHHH now I know who David is, and NO it wasnt from that site I havent been there since being banned for no reason.
    Well I take that back along time ago I was on there cause a friend of mine told me to take a look at what some were posting about me so I went back on to say my peace..I thought how dare someone talk about me when I no longer post there and then say untruths as well...Cheesy, packgirl and Trip know what happened and needless to say we dont have those problems here on this site cause Ryan is a decent guy and so are the moderators...Okay sorry to bother all the readers on here but wanted to state my case. Done speaking on the subject...

    Leave the crap from other sites off of this one. If Heather knows the source of where she got her info I'm sure she is capable of posting it. The last thing I want here is stuff carrying over from other sites to ours and people putting words in eachothers mouthes.
