Favre finally finished?
August 4, 2010 Leave a comment
Reports have been all over ESPN these past days that Brett Favre is telling teammates that he will retire before the beginning of this season.
The news comes as a surprise because the Minnesota Vikings looked to have had a solid team coming into the season after narrowly missing the Super Bowl last year.
Head Coach Brad Childress said he didn’t receive a text from Favre and that he’d have to “hear it from the horse’s mouth” in order to believe the reports.
If the reports are true, this would be Favre’s third time retiring from the NFL, but will it be the final time? Is this third time still considered a charm?
Favre ended last season by throwing an interception as he did the seasons before. Has he lost his touch?
All signs point to no because Favre had an exceptional season before literally throwing it all away in the NFC championship game. The 40-year-old threw for over 4,000 yards and 33 touchdowns with a career-low seven interceptions in leading his Vikings.
The retirement would mark the end of the career of one of the greatest quarterback to ever walk to field, but is he really going to walk away?
Thoughts are that he can’t repeat the passing clinic he put on last year so he should go out on top, but Favre isn’t going to be happy until he wins another Super Bowl.
Fans can only wait and watch until the decision is officially made by Favre himself. Until then, Vegas has had betting on how long it will take for the quarterback to attend camp.
Who else has money on “within the week”.
