Re: Brett Favre
Having lived for 10 years in Wisconsin and having heard more Favre speculation and soundbites while I was there than anyone who's not a Packer fan should have to endure, I think there is a strong likelihood that Favre will want to "go out on top" and not retire after this season of underperformance. I agree with you that his numbers and performance justify hanging 'em up.
If I were a bettor, I'd bet more money against Packers coach Mike Sherman's return than Favre's. I have a feeling the time may be ripe for Mike Holmgren to return to the frozen tundra.
