Brett Favre says he's still 'done with football'

Brett Favre toured a Wrangler facility that was destroyed by a tornado in Hackleburg, Alabama (he's a spokesman, obviously, and from the area). And you'll never guess what someone asked him about.

No, it actually wasn't what more people can do to assist in helping to rebuild the southern areas that have been devastated by the tornados. It was whether or not he's coming back to football in 2011.

The best part, of course, was that Marion County Commission President Don Barnwell was the one who asked Favre about his potential return.

And Favre, per the Associated Press, told Barnwell he was "done with football."

He also said that he wasn't sure if there "would be any football" in 2011, so maybe he's just slow-playing things.

Or perhaps he's just angling for a chance at mentoring Cam Newton.

Apparently Will Brinson has absolutely nothing to do.  Rather than firing him, his employers must have sent him on a Brett Favre chase, hoping for something worthwhile.  Thankfully, however, that train derailed long ago.

Why is Brett Farve even an issue? He had a good to great carreer depending on who you ask.
He has apparently decided to finally call it quits, Why stir up the emotional pot with him. To try and get him to come back again to make a bigger spectcle of himself?
 I am not A farve fan or a hater but gawd Can you imagine the mileage Hacks like Freeman and Prisco would try to get out of this ..

It is bad enough CBS does not pay that wel,l that we have them as expert writers. If CBS paid better we would not have to worry about it.Laughing

I don't speak for Packer fans. If I did , I would say, " oh youse guys ate all my cheese covered brats". "Come on, it's time to drive drunk and kill deer." " Let's drive drunk (#1 in the nation) and wear our hunting colors to a game." As if no hunting is being done in other states.  "I'm drunk, look at me." "I "root" for Green Bay, not the guy who brought us here".

Man I hope the Vikings sign him again!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Me too !!! And I'm a Lions fan...... let the Vikings sign him again, that'll mean one less team to worry about in the division.  And I know you'll start knocking the Lions but the superbowl champs coach just talked about how dangerous the Lions are going to be... the Lions D line was special last year and is going to be dominating in 2011 ( if there's a season that is)....  bring Favre back so he can  lose about 10 games for the Vikings.... PLEASE !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

No fan of the Packers will ever forget Favre. Just idiot losers like you make posts like that. Get over it tool

Who are you to speak for all Packers fans? There are THOUSANDS of Packer fans sick and tired of Brett Favre and his crap.  Just because you still kiss his butt doesn't mean everybody does.
