Not surprisingly Favre decides to call it a career

Brett Favre has stressed that this time there will be no comebacks. After struggling this past season with a Minnesota Vikings team, which went 6-10, Favre has decided that it’s time to retire from the NFL. According to a TSN online report, Favre has already filed his NFL retirement papers, therefore officially ending what was a 20-year career with the Atlanta Hawks, Green Bay Packers, New York Jets and the Vikings. This three time MVP, who last year led the Vikings to the NFC Championship game, suffered through a dismal season, which saw him miss the last game of the season due to a concussion. Overall it was an injury plagued season for Favre, who saw his ironman streak of 297 straight games come to an end, due to a serious shoulder injury suffered against the Buffalo Bills back on December 5. Favre only threw for 11 touchdowns and an alarming 19 interceptions this season, which was a clear indication that his best days were long gone. Something he was at peace with following the season. “This year did not work out the way we hoped … but that’s football,” Favre had said following the team’s finale in Detroit. “I enjoyed my experience here and my teammates and it goes without saying that the fans have been absolutely wonderful. It’s been a great ride for me.”
