    I am officially depressed. Feels like I just got punched in the face. I knew it was going to happen sooner or later but.....



    Damn!

    They rushed him and Peter King to the hospital.

    Rumor has it Peter King was scratching at Tom Brady's door like a puppy wanted to come inside.

    SORRY. I HAVE BEEN AWAY SINCE THE GIANTS GAME. AFTER THE LAST TWO MONTHS OF SIGNS, I KNEW THIS DAY WAS COMING...GREAT QB AT THE END OF AN ERA WITH A NEW ERA, IF POSSIBLE, TO START AT THE PACKERS.

    I'm so flippin' dumbfounded that I can post anything serious. I can't post in the "Favre Appreciation" thread, cause I'm not in the mood to post any happy memories. I'm pissed, but I'm not. It's only been a few hours, but I'm ready for this to die down so we can move on an figure out whats next.

    It's already starting in Green Bay. People are mad, sad, depressed. It's going to be at least a month before anyone gets over this and then when the season starts it's going to be tough again. I'm glad he left this way and not via an injury though.

    So.... you are saying I should kill myself?

    I'm depressed but not suicidal.

    I'm definitely sad to see him go. But, he had a very good final season and I think it's time for us (as Packer fans) to start transitioning forward. I'd like to see what Rodgers can do (and maybe sign a vet backup), but the strength of this team is the RB, WR, defense and special teams. This isn't like it would have been if Brett would have retired three years ago when we had nothing but Favre and scrubs.

    As old TOPacker used to quote, " what does not kill you, will make you stronger". I still would lay down a side bet that he changes his mind, that's how far removed from reality my thoughts are!

    He's on the phone, I guess he talked to Favre for about 30 minutes. Can't really tell if he is crying or not, but I suspect that he is. Actually, when he started talking about how the town of Green Bay is feeling right now, you could abudibly tell he was tearing up.

    NFLN has turned this into Favre day. Specials all the day now.

    At least Favre announced during Spring Break, because I wouldn't be going to school today for sure.

    It's a sad, sad day, but I can't say I'm shocked. Considering how well he played last season and how far the team went, he was taking a LOOOOONG time to make his decision.

    He always said he wanted to go out when he was still near the top of his game, and he's done that. It would not have been the case had he retired after the 2005 season, or even 2006. It's a bummer that his last game was a loss, though. I was at that game, so I witnessed a piece of NFL history, but not the kind of history that I wanted to witness.

    We're going to miss Favre even if his replacement plays well. He's a once-in-a-lifetime player.
