No Favre sucks, haven't you been reading? We could have won with anyone in 03 and 04. We were 5th in points in 05, despite no Ahman Green and going 4-12, because he tailed off to 3880 yds passing. Slacker. Last year AR passed for 4000 and we went 6-10. Maybe we've got the poor coaching staff?

Your time for what? Just kidding. Actually, I admire the fact that you Viqueen fans seem to never lose hope. Especially after enduring endless years of failure!

Don't do it Brett! Stop tarnishing your career like Michael Jordan, Jerry Rice, Dan Marino, or anybody else who held on way too long!

How did any of those tarnish their careers by playing when they were no longer what they used to be? Hell, even at the end of their careers, they were still better than most in the league.

Michael Jordan was a shadown of himself, Jerry Rice was bad, and Dan Marino was just plain awful. What are you talking about?

Brett Favre has been bad and a turnover machine since 2005 with the lone exception of 2007-08 when the Packers made a run to the NFC Championship game. Even then, he was HORRIBLE against the Giants at Lambeau.

Brett Favre was runner up in MVP voting in 2007. The Packers and Jets won 12 more games with Favre than without him in the last two years, and that was with an injury last year that affected his throwing arm. Every QB in the league would love to be that kind of player at the end of their career. Oh yeah, and Jordan, Rice and Marino had exceptionally fine careers despite a little tarnish.

Michael Jordan was still averaging 20+ ppg those last two years he played in Washington, Jerry Rice was a #3 reciever to me those last two years in Oakland and Seattle, and Dan Marino only tried to play one more year after he didn't have it. But in no way did they tarnish their careers by doing this. Sorry, but I think that Brett Favre still has a little bit to give and is still better than a lot of players in the league. Most people would kill just to be as good as he is now. No, he's not in the top 10 QB's in the league anymore, but he's still better than half of them.

Tarnished:

Rice in a Raiders uniform only to be cut then signed by KC then released, then retired.

Jordan returned to a crappy team only to look old and beat down

Dan Marino had wet dreams on winning a Super Bowl and fianlly realized it just was not going to happen and no one else would want him after 16 years.

Favre won a Super Bowl when? 1997 12 years ago. Retired as a Packer. Returned as Jet last year with a torn bicep and an injured shoulder week 17 because he is "Brett Favre" costing the Jets a playoff spot by tossing 3 INT's. Retired again.

Sometimes you just have to say I REALLY am retired.

Just to let you know Jerry Rice never signed with Kansas City. He signed with Denver and then retired because they were going to use him as a #4 reciever and he wanted to be at least a #3.

Jordan was still averaging 20+ ppg when he was in Washington. There's pretty decent players in the NBA who don't even get that in their prime.

Dan Marino only played one season that he was starting to show he didn't have it anymore.

Weren't the Packers in a NFC Championship game a few years and almost won it because of Brett Favre? Didn't the Jets become a playoff contender team and won 5 more games than compared to what they did the year before without Brett Favre? I'm getting annoyed as anyone by Brett Favre not being able to figure out if he wants play football or retire because he has done this the past five years now, but if he can play, he can play and I think he might still have something to give.

You have correctly pointed out that the greatest competitors have something in common. They have an amazingly strong desire to compete. They almost always push themselves and their careers to the brink and often beyond. Jordan, Rice, Marino and many, many more have attained tremendous stature and prestige because of their drive to succeed.

Brett Favre has the same kind of motivation and drive as other great athletes. It is no suprise that he will probably continue to play as long as he can. The drive to succeed also is fueling his drive to compete. He is the same as all the great athletes in this way.

Yep..motivation, or in other words MONEY..the whole Favre clans lifestyle is financed by Brett. Without his $$$$ they are just southern white trash and no class..with him they are just southern white trash,no class, wearing Ralph Lauren and Ray Bans,buying cars and maxing out credit cards. So they need that "motivation" to come back.. again..poor guy

What? Are you a communist? Why do you have a problem with money? Let me guess, because you don't have any. Jealousy is a very ugly emotion. Try having a little class yourself!
