Favre to Retire Again

We’ll see how long this lasts, though it does sound like he is more decisive this time. I am not our resident New York Jets fan, (though I certainly was rooting for them to beat the Miami Dolphins in the final regular season game for my own selfish reasons of playoff math) but I’ve always liked Favre. I though he diminished himself with his handling of his departure from the Green Bay Packers and his poor performance in his last five games as a Jet.

But there was a run for a while where it looked like his decision not to retire was correct — beating the New England Patriots, routing the then-undefeated Tennessee Titans, surging to the lead in the AFC East. Had he not torn the bicep on his “rocket arm,” who knows what might have happened? As it turned out, his final season at Green Bay — a 13-3 regular season record, the playoffs, and an overtime loss in the NFC championship game — might have been a better way to leave the NFL.
