    I saw this... Wow. Not really even sure what to say. In a weird way, even though I harbored such hatred for the guy, I'm sad...

    I understand exactly what you are saying. I didn't fancy him in the latter years but my, I'm kinda speechless here. It's just sad to see it end this way when it could of been so different.

    I'm pretty sure that time will end all ill feelings towards him in Green Bay. Just like it did for Lambeau and Lombardi.

    Wait a second. Is this just the end of the streak or is it the end of Favre's career? So the epic drama continues.

    Having watched his whole career, and comparing the joy he gave me against the irritation at the end...I'm feeling sad.

    Yes, it is sad. I was just a few months old when his streak began and now I am in college. I have never known Favre not to play. It would be somewhat ironic if he doesn't play again this year; his year would have once again ended with an interception.

    Could be it for the season and career. Word is the Vikings are considering IR, though he would stay with the team.

    I could see him retiring now if the vikes don't bench him. I mean, that streak has been his trademark throughout his career. Somehow, seeing him play after it has ended wouldn't be the same.

    I smell a RAT here.

    I think the league was about to lay a suspension on him, & he took the, "I'm hurt", reason to step out gracefully.

    Sorry, I loved this guy once, but he turned on us.

    No way can you tell me he doesn't play tonight because of this injury...remember he is the "Iron Man" who never misses a game.

    I think he's 1 step ahead of a suspension.

    Wouldn't surprise me if he retires soon...before the end of the season.

    I have nothing but contempt for this guy.
    I would feel differently if:
    1) He was still a Packer.
    2) If he wasn't such a loser.
    3) If he had been any other player who takes more and harder hits then the QB does.

    Maybe he just dreaded the thought of facing the Giant's D. They have been destroying QBs this year and Favre is already wounded. I was actually mildly concerned about this.

    I think you are right. Maybe says he was about to go on IR so he retired. Then league says the matter is closed because hes no longer a player. Then Jen Sterger threatens to take the NFL to civil court. Then she suddenly becomes very wealthy and withdraws her case.

    Sterger spelled backwards is Regrets.
