    They won't pick the Vikings game. What a disappointment that would be. Bring Favre in to honor him and retire his jersey, and then get beat. Better make it the Lions game.

    Damn, I have to admit even I am going to miss watching #4 play. If you want to define "Old School", just insert Brett Favre. It was a game to Favre, he had fun. That is a breath of fresh air compared to many of the spoiled millionaire athletes today. A perfect example would be Daunte Culpepper, demanding more money after the 05 season. He couldn't carry Favre's jock.

    The NFL discourages retiring numbers and is trying to get teams to retire jerseys instead. But this is a clear case where a number needs to be retired.

    Soemone on another site had a good suggestion. Instead of retireing his number as so many have before, we should take it a step further and replace the number four with his name.

    one, two, three , favre, five, six.....

    Q: What time are does your plane arrive?
    A: Sometime after favre. I think it is favre favreteen to be exact.

    Q: how many kids do you have?
    A: well we have three currently but we are working on number favre!

    Boyfriend: Honey, did I satisfy you?
    Girlfriend: Satisfy me??? Favre times for crying out loud. Wow!

    Truly funny if you have ever been to Sun City. Old people and golf courses as far as the eye can see.

    After the game, during the press conference, he can finally admit how he gave Strahan the sack record! "It was a naked bootleg, I saw a gap and ran toward it. Then I realized it was his front teeth and he tackled me".
