    Jay Glazer always gets these inside scoops and is almost never wrong.

    Looks like the Favre era has come to an end.

    Chris Mortenson on Mike and Mike now, saying his sources have confirmed he's retiring. No press conference set up, told McCarthy last night, not sure when Favre will talk.

    I knew that this day was coming. I thought that I was ready, but as it turns out I am very sad.

    The bigger question is does he go somewhere else next year?

    Edit: I should call in sick today.

    Sad Sad day,
    But it had to come, A. Rogers now has his chance and I think with the team that has been put around him, The Packers will keep winning.

    Just too sad, I really thoght there would be one more year.

    What a great career Brett. Amazing and just awesome. I'm glad I got to see him play too once.

    Aaron Rodgers now gets his chance. I hope he can come in and produce.

    I was going to go to Lambeau this year too, to see Brett. I've seen him at Soldier Field, but that's not the same. Sucks for me.

    It's in the Biloxi Sun Herald too (which is how he normally reports that he's either coming back or retiring).

    Just like him to do this when everyone was so sure he was coming back.

    I'm actually somewhat happy I spent all that $ to go to the NFC Championship. I saw Brett's last game as a pro (assuming he doesn't change his mind that is).
