    I know Brett says the records don't mean anything to him. And in a way I do believe that's how he feels.

    BUT it is one thing to be one of the best QBs to ever play the game. It is an other thing to be the all time winningest QB. The QB who has thrown the most TDs And what ever other records he would set by playing just one more season.
    And keep in mind that by breaking the TD record he would be taking it away from Marino. A guy who has dissed Brett for most of his career.
    Finally, if records were not important to Brett why did he keep his string of games started going for so long? He played in games when his injuries limited his performance. There were a few times when he was not as good of a player as his back up. I think he takes pride, ands rightly so, in his ability to show up for work every single week. But if he was going to do what was best for the team he would have sat out once in a while. So records do mean something to him.

    I dont know what was said in here..but it was emotional for me to even watch this at the end. It is going to be an emotional day for sure whenever he does decide to retire. which i hope is not for a long long time. But honestly i think there are going to be some of my tears shed when the man retires :(

    I could see him not caring about records. However, he has to care about winning, and 2007 w/Favre will definitely be a winning season. I could see TT doing the necessary things in the offseason (Tony G, an SS, or something along those lines) to make us contenders.

    Our D without a doubt has improved greatly. I think by the time the season rolls around, Favre would have changed his mind and will come back for one more shot at the big game.

    He played like a man possessed? C'mon. He played a good game, but made some poor throws an underthrew his WR on several occasions.

    I think a key thing to note is he played like a man possessed in the 1st Quarter. And that was about it. Other than that his recievers also made a couple of very pretty grabs.

    The WR were very impressive today. Save Martin's stall on his slant that caused the INT.

    Yea that wasnt the best lookin play in the world. But hey its a guy who didnt really know much(not being a starter and all) and things like that are going to happen anyway. It happened with Driver a couple times this year. Other than that one hickup I think for the most part our recievers looked like they were playing inspired.

    After that interview I think he is done now. But you know, it would be cool seeing someone new in that as QB for us. But i'll never forgot #4, and would love for him to comeback always. I'd want Rodgers to start if Favre retires, don't feel to confident with Ingle.

    God, I'm getting misty eyed just watching it again.....

    Every time I see it I think more and more he's gonna retire.....

    You have to admit though, that comment about "way to put me on the smith" followed by a chuckle was vintage Brett, always the joker...

    Oh boy, this is heart wrenching stuff....

    Personally, I took comfort in him saying he didn't want to be sitting home and come week 3/4/5/6/7 be thinking he could still be playing. I took that to mean he wouldn't know how much more he had left until he came back.

    This year, the interview just deflated me completely.....

    Regarding Brett saying he would announce his status "soon" is this.

    He said last season if he had to make a choice right away after the season, he would have retired. It was the time he was able to take that he choice to play the upcoming season.

    I think trom was talking about him being done in the sense that he's hanging them up, not that he can't play anymore.

    When he says "this game is gonna make it tougher", I have to think he is ready to hang it up.

    He talks about still being able to play and having the confidence in himself to be able to play, and I think that is the only thing that is keeping a rapidly closing window of returning open...

    Jesus give the man some credit. We were playing the BEARS for god sakes. One of if not the best defense in all of football and we shreaded them on every drive almost. Remember? Same bears who shut us out in week one.

    This was a quality win for us. Its pretty debateable whether of not Griese is better or worse than Grossman so i dont want to hear about how they pulled their starters. We stomped them out, perfect way to go out by stomping the Bears if that was your last game Brett. Thanks for the memories.

    Sometimes they want to do surgery quickly before too much scar tissue or healing occurs. And he may just want to get it over with, hard to work on the farm or hunt with a bad ankle.

    Yeah...

    I don't know why some people want to pick apart every little thing about this guy....

    I think it's a miracle he got them to 8-8 this year!

    And the Favre debate begins nationally...............
    Skip Clueless: Favre and Roger Clemens are the biggest Divas in sports.
    Colon Coward: He's sick of playing in cold weather and wil retire only to return in a year with a warm weather team.

    These guys are morons..

    It's apparent that Skip Ball-less and the other guy never played the game...They were probably always picked last in gym class and had their underwear band ripped over their heads and hung on a hook in their school gym lockers..

    Don't listen to them. They're idiots..
