    Pro Athletes have numerous ways to retire.

    1. Injury;

    2. No one picks up their contract;

    3. Playing an announced final game, ex. The Bus

    4. Going out half heartedly while still loving the game and knowing in your mind you can play.

    Option 4 is applies to Favre. I don't compare Favre to Emmitt or Rice, who hung on too long. I compare Favre to Michael Jordan (No not because he is necessarily the MJ of Football). I compare Favre to Jordan because MJ originally retired at a point in his career when he had something left in the tank and still had desire.

    So what does the future hold for Favre? IF Favre retires this year, I would not be surprised that after a year or two he comes back for one or two more seasons, because that desire still exists, similar to MJ.

    i personally do not see the possibility of coming out of retirement being an option for brett. i know MJ did it, but basketball is a little different. i am just hoping brett decides to come back this year so he won't have to entertain that possibility

    number 4 shouls say. going out because you are too damn competitive to endure another 4-12 season.
