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.

I can not hear enough about Favre. Please come back. Please finish the job that Reggie White started with the Panthers.

Big deal and Nixon is done being president too.  Aaron Rodgers has made most GB fans forget him anyway.

Isn't it a good thing that Favre is done with football?  Because football is done with him.

And if he decides to return as a TV analyst, let him wait a few years, first.  His soap opera act the last two summers has fans still burned out on hearing his name in the news...

Why would Favre want to "mentor" Cam Newton when he's never wanted to be bothered with mentoring any other QB? Never mind the array of bad habits Newton would pick up from him. If I'm the Carolina Panthers I don't want Favre anywhere near Newton.

Favre is done with football until the lockout ends and he sends out feelers to NFL teams to gauge interest in his services. I expect Favre to play football in 2011. I wish he wouldn't because every time he comes out of retriement he always gives the same old speech "I still have plenty in the tank and I have alot to prove".
