    Ha put on ESPN and I'm sure you'll see the replay. Mort said it based on things Favre said during the interview that was not televised. The big dude with the goatee said the 10% would out weigh the 90% before to long. I'll try to find a source though.

    i wont put up too much stock in that. some 'experts' think he'll return, some 'experts' think he'll retire. obviously with his recent comments, most 'experts' would be wise to lean toward ther etirement side.

    Yeah you were right Ace, I just saw the replay. No real facts were stated just that he "felt that in the next month Favre would retire" and the he thought that "Favre was 90/10 leaning to retirement". He said that Favre mentioned he met with MM and TT and they (quote Favre)"said all the right things" however (quote Favre)"they could not guarentee the Packers would be a playoff contender" and that Favre didn't want to play if they weren't going to make the playoffs (or something along those lines).

    Competitive was the word your looking for Ryan ;)

    Anyway, these "experts" also named Jim Bates the Packers head coach so, lol. I trust the words on the issue out of one persons mouth; Brett Favre.

    I must admit though, I tend to agree with Mort doesn't look good for Brett. But it seems like he has a new opinion every day. Also this puts to rest when the interview took place, obviously AFTER he met with MM and TT.

    I hate analysts and media types probably more than 95% of the people on this site. With that said, there are a few good ones. Chris Mortenson falls into that category. He's very well connected and isn't as reactionary as his peers. I would hope he's incorrect by saying Favre is 90% gone, but I have to put alot of merit into what Mort says.

    As I said before, I will continue to believe Brett will come back, as long as even if it is the slimest of chances.

    Brett said he doesn't want to regret it, and I think he has to go out there and know for sure. Otherwise, he will always think "what if?". That is just me two cents.

    If he wants to retire, let him.

    Blah, blah, blah, blah, blah.....they don't know sh1t, one way or another. He just happens to be the biggest and most noteworthy name out there right now and it is a slow news season as soon as the SB is over......just setting up their headlines for the next couple months.
