Default Report: Favre to retire after 1 season with Jets

Brett Favre apparently is ready to call it quits for good.
According to a report on ESPN, Favre has instructed his agent, James "Bus" Cook, to tell the York Jets on Wednesday that he is retiring.
Favre, who announced his retirement in March 2008 only to un-retire four months later, sent an e-mail to an ESPN reporter indicating his intentions to end his career.


The three-time MVP praised the organization and since-fired coach Eric Mangini, saying he had no regrets about finishing his career with the Jets after spending his entire career with the Green Bay Packers.
"I enjoyed playing for him," Favre wrote in the e-mail. "My time with the Jets was short, but I'm honored to be given that chance."

wow....he really screwed over the Jets..

they let go of Pennington to get this guy..Pennington goes out and performs at the (same) high level that he did this year, sticks it to them in the finale....that game ultimately finishes Mangini's career in New York and then Favre quits...and yes, quits is the right word...

now the Jets are stuck with Kellen Clemens back there and a bunch of high priced defensive and offensive free agents (Jenkins, FONECO) who were brought in to WIN NOW...

did he think he was going to win the SUper Bowl last year I really think the Jets could have been a threat this year with Favre....now, not so much

Colin Cowherd and Mort are on the radio now, going into another pointless admiration puff fest for Favre, talking about his greatness and all that. Mort of course has Brett in his top three qbs of all time. Why? Because he's won the most games and has the consecutive streak record *rolls eyes*.

Cowherd is railing about how Favre is the most likeable athlete out there, blah blah. And that he could play in any era because of his skill set. Blah, blah. And that qbs are rewarded for brains now and that #4 entered this 'new' era of football reluctantly, and how he could have played in the 70s with Bradshaw, blah, blah.

He did say Elway had a better skill set athletically. Well, duh.

And now he and Mort have concluded Culter is another Favre type. So one day when Jay has gray hair and fuzzy knees, he can advertise Jeans too. And drive an RV. And get a public hungry wife. And have a nutty family that does folksy and insane things.

Sex, the hoola hoop, sliced bread < favre

, yeah that's like trying to get the tattoo of your exgirlfriend altered. Bet if you go look at that birth certificate, it's already been illegally changed to Breft.
