Brett Favre Retires Again

Much like the boy who cried wolf, Brett Favre continues to retire again and again. This time, the Hall of Fame quarterback says that his recently repaired ankle isn't responding well after surgery. Those who are hoping the quarterback will return still have until August 12th, when Packers camp officially ends, or maybe he will announce a comeback just before the beginning of the regular season.

Last season, Favre had one of this best seasons, with a completion percentage (68.4%), quarterback rating (107.2), fewest interceptions (7), and 33 touchdowns. In addition, after winning the NFC North title, the quarterback was one game away from the Superbowl.

Many people are offended by Favre's retirement announcement, but the man is old and probably doesn't know if his body can handle another season. I, for one, hope he returns to show us why, even at 40, he is better than the majority of quarterbacks in the NFL. I know money isn't an issue with Favre, but if he does return, he will pocket another $13 million.
