So after announcing his re-retirement now all of a sudden Brett Favre will start the next pre-season game for the Vikings. What is this guy doing??? It is not like he had a great season last year, it was mediocre at best. Dont you think this guy needs to stay retired and stop the little circus??? He should just stick to his wrangler commercials, He is old enough to be some of these players' father. What is he thinking???

I have no idea what is going through that idiots head. I don't know if he has been hit to many times in the head, if he really doesn't like spending time with his family, or he is just plain crazy. Who knows.

I think he is just plain crazy lol. He wil have a bad season and hopefully call it quits for good. He should just stick to his wrangler commercials.

I really hate to say this, but I hope that he has a bad injury that will end his career, so he will stop doing this to the NFL. He has made the off season a joke for 5 years now. He has held 3 teams hostage while he decided if he wanted to retire.

As cruel as that sounds it is probably the only way he will ever quit. He needs to retire before he has a bad injury.

How much money is he making this time? If I was him I'd keep playing until they stopped paying me millions of dollars. Brett Favre might be mediocre but what does that say about the other Viking QBs??? lol

Last I read he signed for a guaranteed 12 million this year and 13 million next year. That is if he is on the opening day roster for for the season. He has already made enough money in his career so its not about the money. About the Vikings Quarterbacks I guess you do have a point lol. Even though Tarvaris Jackson did not do that bad last year.

I said the same thing, until someone explained it to me this way. Last year he did pretty well at the beginning of the season, 8 and 3, or something close. Then at the end he went 1 and 3. The reasoning is that the season was too long for him. So he waited until now to announce he was going to play for the Vikings so that he didn't have to go through preseason training. And by the way people talked in the articles I read, they knew it all along. The Vikings discussions were more like "When" Favre comes, instead of "If". I'm neither fan nor foe, but it makes since, especially after reading your synopsis on his age.

Thank you for responding. I agree maybe the season did get a little to long for him. But he is almost 40 and recovering from shoulder surgery I just dont think it is a good move considering he is one of the greatest quarterbacks to have played the game. I dont think he is going to have a good season either. We will have to wait and see.

Don't even get me started on that guy... ...but since you did, I really can't stand him at all anymore. I used to have a ton of respect for the man but he's ruining his reputation by being more fickle than a 7th grader. He used to be the face of Green Bay; how long did he play for them? Now, he's whoring himself out to whatever team needs a decent- and even that's a stretch nowadays- QB. He's barely a playmaker too. What did he do for the Packers in his twilight years? What did he do for the Jets? And yet why do teams still want him? Surely only because he's Brett Favre. You made a good point, it can't be for the money, and he has to see that he's not what he used to be. I think he just likes the attention he's getting. I heard on the radio that he doesn't like dealing with the press, then maybe it's time he should learn to just disappear.
