Brett Favre to return or to retire?

Hmm sounds like an age old Shakespeare question.

The Packers had a fantastic season. Brett Favre had an amazing season, breaking records left and right. Everyone has been speculating if he is going to be returning or retiring for next season.

What do you think?

brett should stay. he is playing great ( or good enough). he has great young talent on the team. if things will go in their favor next year they have a good chance at the super bowl next year. he should come back next year.

I think he will for sure come back mostly because he still loves playing the game. That is the biggest reason but another big reason he will come back is They have a really good chance of getting to the super bowl and when you get thier anything can happen. They have a young group of recievers a good running game good O line good D he will come back for at least one more year if not 2 or 3. I hope he comes back cause he is one of the few that I love watching play.

I say he's gone. He is the type of quarterback that actually likes to take the hit. At his age, he MUST be feeling it. Even though I'm a Brady fan, Favre had a great year and I'd hate to see him go.

Brett Favre to return or to retire?

I think that this years packer team is a one year wonder and Brett should retire with all of his records.  The expection for next year for the Packers will be very high and I don't think that Brett and the rest of the team can meet those expections.  Every one would love to go out a super bowl championship and this was Farve's last year to do so.

It will take him some time to decide but I think he will be back just because the last pass he threw was picked off. Brett played at a high level all year but age is catching up with him and playing in the cold was probably not a good thing for him. You cannot take away that he played great all year but I just don't believe he could come out and play at that high level again. Good luck to him and wish him the best but stay at home before you get a bad injury.

Brett will play again.  Theres now way he will walk away from the game with his last play being that interception.  Aaron Rogers will have to wait another year or until Brett suffers an injury that will keep him off the field.  Brett can still play at the pro level, so why would he retire?

He has to come back, the team he has has the potential of being in the Super Bowl next year. Their defense is solid, and with Favre at QB their offense will always be good. But his health might be the deciding factor.

In Brett's own words: "I'll keep playing as long as I feel I can compete at a high level",  he is, and IMO he will be back.

Besides, I don't want to have to change my SN.

I agree with you, will come back and they will continue to be a power in that division, much like the players are saying "you really dont think Brett Favre is going out with an interception as his last play" I have to agree, he's too competitive and the team is at a point where they will be in it the whole year,unlike the past where he had to work it. Similar to the end of Marinos career, star QB and surrounding team,, now he has a team around him!

I say that he comes back.Hes played well in his...old age.He made a turn-around season this year and pleased the "cheese head" fans this year, like he used to. They were very close to a Super Bowl so if he thinks that he can do it again next year,then he'll come back.

For an older QB he's still got great talent.
