Time for Brett Favre to hang it up!

I like the guy, but I have always thought he never should have "un-retire" and play for the Jets. After seeing his performance this season, I definitely think it's time for him to hung his cleats and shoulder pads up. He is a sure HoF, but he is continuing to tarnish his legacy by continuing to play. Do you think it's time for Brett Favre to hung it up, or do you think he still has some gas left in the tank?

I think the ironman has a year left or even a few more. he can do much better next year when he has already experienced this new offense

Well a new coach and a new system will be in place next season for the Jets. I'm not too sure Favre can handle that.

True the new could be in his favor though , but well see this upcoming season if he doesn't "retire" again.

Missing the playoffs really hurt. They, and he, looked pretty pathetic down the stretch. With a new coach and probably a new offense coming in I would think he will say he doesn't want to learn another new offense. Unless they get someone like COwer I think he might just hang it up. I wouldn't put it past him though to end up somewhere on a team that plays in warm weather or inside. It is pretty sad though if this was the last year. In a Jets uniform and finishing so poorly does I think tarnish the image no matter what some may say.

From the beginning, I never did like the idea of him joining the Jets. Had he joined a team like Baltimore, or Tampa, I think he would have more success.

I think he struggled this year but I still would take him over about a dozen quarterbacks in the league. I just think he needs to play for a warm-climate team or a team that plays home games in a dome.

They were actually doing great 5 weeks ago(after they beat the Titans), then all of a sudden it seems they've imploded. Nothing like what the Cowboys went thru, but imploded nonetheless.

He should have retired years ago. He has definitely stayed past him time. Unfortunately, he thinks he can still come back and play. He has no one close to him to tell him no. So, he will try again. The only thing that will stop him is the Jets cutting him and no other team signing him. Which won't happen. Some team will always be desperate enough to take the chance.

I agree with your points there. And you are right, there are a lot of QB needing teams in the horizon for Favre not to get a contract offer. It probably is up to him, if he thinks he can strive in a given team's system.

The Jets might not be the right fit for an aging QB that can't play in cold weather anymore. But even washed up he is better than what some teams have at QB. I think he'll play another year before he retires.

Lol, that's the current state of NFL QBs nowadays. I mean After Tom Brady and Peyton Manning, the list of good to average QBs is far in between.

No, he's out of gas and his arm is gone. I am a Miami Dolphins fan so I was watching him this past weekend when they faced the Jets. Most of his passing game was way off, he seemed unmotivated and in all honesty, uninterested in the game as it was being played. Every time the camera was on him on the sidelines he was sitting emotionless, looking like he couldn't wait for it to be over.

Yup, it looked that way to me as well. Did you hear his pep talk before their first offensive series? He said "If it works out it works out if it doesn't it doesn't alright? What's important is you do your best, love u guys!". Sounds to me like he doesn't want to win at all, no urgency at all.

He should play as long as he wants to play.He has earned that right to go out on hie terms.I don`t think he cares about his legacy. When you have made that much money who cares what others think of him. To be honest I don`t think Brett has ever really cared what the fans thought of him.
