Sounds crazy, huh? Brett Favre saying he is going to retire after the season is over… But he did it again today after practice.
“I’m done, I’m done,” said Favre, whose voice remained hoarse from a bug he is battling.
Asked if he should be believed this time, Favre said: “I remember the same question, the first part of the year, everyone said, ‘Well, ….’ I said, ‘Time will tell,’ but like I said, I’m done. I’d love to, as I said when I came back I’m here to win a Super Bowl, we had big expecations, it hasn’t gone the way we hoped up to this point, but again, my career speaks for itself. I think it’s been a great career. I don’t know how the remaining games will unfold but that’s it.”
So how does Favre mentality get right with accepting the fact he’s done? “I wasn’t expecting that question,” Favre said. “It’s kind of deep. I don’t know. I know when I look back and maybe it’s next year, people say, ‘Will you watch games?’ I’m sure I’ll watch some. But for me everything that I could possibly accomplish I’ve accomplished. Which is amazing. You set goals, we all set goals. There were some I didn’t even set that I reached. I was fortunate enough to be on a team that won the Super Bowl. That was a long time ago so there’s nothing left to prove or from a goal standpoint to accomplish.”
See yoou on the field again next year, old man Wrangler.
