Well, ……..
If so kind of fitting that his last game was/will have been, at Green Bay, as it should have been all along.
Just the excuse his coach needs, poor play, texting scandal, control issues.
Stubborn old feller finished the game on that ankle. Gotta give him that! That’s hard core!!!!

It was a great career!

Like many though, they just don't know when to hang it up and that should have been two years ago.

And, shame on the Vikings for thinking a 41 year old QB was going to bring them to he promised land.

Depends on how much he's willing to sacrafice his long term health and comfort. They can inject him with cortizone and marcaine and let him play, so long as there are no unstable fractures, which there do not appear to by by report. (and the fact he finished the game)

He may have screwed himself out of a large enough market to get into broadcasting, but should have a good stint as a Viagra spokesperson. I guess the filming has already begun.

(I voted "yes" with the caveat that he may try to take an opening snap for one more consec start, then hang it up)

like the headline of the Sam Peckinpah movie "the Wild Bunch"...he stayed too long...I predicted on another thread this would end ugly and I hope I am still wrong, Favre has done nothing but tarnish a HOF legacy both on the field and off

what really sad is that the Vikings are going to squander the career of the best RB in pro football Adrian Peterson by making a suicide pact with the devil and banking on # 4

I think it's ridiculous to say that he should stop playing before he wants to give it up because he'll "tarnish" his great career.

My post on a WI sports board.

"I noticed about 2/3's of the way thru last season the "old man's" walk & run.

You see, I am an old man and I have walked the old man's walk and run the old man's run.
It's the message God sends that it's over.
And I loved to play ball too.
I worked so hard to continue to play, but in the end Father Time gets us all.

I have a man crush on Brett Favre, I admit it, I loved to watch him play.
I loved to watch Muhammed Ali, Michael & Tiger too.
One lesson I have learned in life, nothing lasts forever.

It kills me to say this, but my football hero is done.
I know the heart is still there, but the body and the mind (information processing) is fading and it's fading fast."

Favre reminds me of an old hunting dog; at some point you should just leave them in the truck, but they still want to go, and you just can't say no to them. The old dog has earned the right to go out on his own terms. Problem is, you can slow down the game for the old dog, walk slower, take a lot of water breaks, stop and scratch their ears, even let them follow along on those last couple of hunts. You can't do that in the NFL, he has really gotten beat up the last couple of years.

I think Favre is done playing well except for a game here and there. But he isn't done playing. There is no way that he has taken his last snap or started his last game. He'll finish the season, barring serious injury, but it will be painful to watch to those of us who like him.

GB is a class franchise - like the Steelers were before all the sleaze:(!!!!!!

I quit having any respect for ***** when he began to act like a prima donna with his holdouts & inability to deliver in the clutch. If you are going to act like something special you have to have the delivery.

BTW, I didn't vote as I believe the Vikes went after someone no longer in their prime & are squandering the career of AP, but they also have a solid team at every position except QB & that to is being squandered.

How many SB wins did Marino have?

It's not a debate to me, you can like whoever you want, I watched Favre play and I loved watching him play.

Every Sunday after Church we would go to someones house with all our kids and watch Favre.
Our family's grew up together with him.
He was part of the family.

It's very fashionable to hate on him right now.
I won't participate.

He is my favorite player I ever saw play.

The consecutive starts and 70,000 plus yards and 500 plus TD's are pretty impressive.

Joe Montana owns all the important Post Season records for a QB.

He is 4 - 0 in Super Bowls and a 3 time SB MVP.
Highest passer rating of All Time, leading the league 5 seasons in a row with only 139 interceptions in his career.

He may not have the longevity of Farve, hence he doesn't have as many pass attempts or yards but, he delivered his team, season after season to the promised land.

While Farve is a Top 10 All Time QB, lets don't forget that his team lost in the playoffs 3 years in a row to the Cowboys.

I don't hate Farve either, just keeping it real. Afterall, he grew up 45 minutes from downtown New Orleans and wanted to be drafted by the Saints.

I'm not a huge fan of Favre, but I could see arguments for him being one of the best. Really, his consecutive start record is approached only by Lou Gherig or Cal Ripken. I don't care what else you do, not missing a game in that many years is phenomenal!

Of course, most of his career has been played in the ladies' league (in the grass era) unlike when the unrefuted greatest QB ever, Terry Bradshaw played. :D

That avatar wasn't hating on Farve. It's call humor, just like the "pants on the ground" thing. We love him around here and consider him to be one of us. Had he not been playing against the Saints in the NFC Champ game, the area would have been pulling for him. Heck, even folks from Kiln, Ms were torn as to who to pull for!

I agree, I still hold it will be the Saints v Packers for the entire NFC enchallada. Saints' O is getting healthy and the D is playing awesome.

Ken Stabler? Wow, I haven't heard that in a long time. I remember going to watch them play the Oilers in the Astrodome. Never forget watching Ray Guy tap the rafters with a pooch kick. Of course, they called a dead-ball (not that there was a specific rule in place for when a punter hits the roof of the dome!!) but he then dropped one within the 5 yard line that landed like a dead duck. That guy could play with the ball and make it do whatever he wanted with his foot.

Kenny Stabler is currently doing the Color Analysis job for the U of Bama Crimson Tide. He also owns a bar down in Gulf Shores, Al.

I was at a Saints' game when he was the QB of the Saints in 1983. We were playing the Bears in the dome. Walter Payton threw two TD passes to Willie Gault to tie the game at the end of regulation play at 35 to 35. Jim McMahon was thier rookie QB. Game ended in OT with a Morten Anderson FG.

Stabler was over-the-hill then but, Bum loved his guts. It was the beginning of the end for Bum as he traded Archie to the Oilers to bring in Stabler from the Raiders.

And now I hear Bum has an out-of-work son!

I think Stabler came from a brief stint with the Oilers, between Oakland and NO. I know Dave Caspar and he would connect like old times and pose a threat for a while in Houston, but they were both a little too old at that time.

I had no idea that Archie went to Houston. He must have been after Stabler and before Moon. Or a few others.

Archie was trade to the Oilers for OL Leon Grey. After two seasons with the Oilers, he finished his career with the Vikings. A sad use of awesome talent. I think he was better than Eli but not as good as Peyton. He was the NFL league MVP in 1979 on a Saints team that went 8 -8. Bear Bryant said of Archie that he was the best college QB he ever played against. Archie could run and throw and played the position with a lot of intelligence. As bad as the Saints team was back then, I'd say he was lucky to be able to sire children.;-)
