If Brett Favre is indeed retired, he is going out with a whimper instead of a bang. Stat wise, this has been the grizzled veteran's worst year ever and this coupled with his numerous injuries and texting scandals it is likely a year he wants to forget. It can be easily debated that Favre made a mistake coming back. Regardless, Brett Favre retires holding the bulk of the NFL Quarterback records and is usually in the discussion for the top ten QBs of all time. There should be little doubt that when eligible, he will vault to number one on our football list, but will only be there one year as he is a surefire first ballot inductee.
Mr. Favre, please stay retired and enjoy the next phase of your life, you have nothing left to prove on the field.
