I'm convinced Brett is paying his sister to do all the crazy shit so he can see if his name comes up in a Google search.

Alex Marvez of FOX Sports is reporting that Favre has officially filed his retirement papers, a step toward actually retiring from football and not just saying he’s retiring

Favre will be coaching QBs within 2 years. He talks too dumb to go in the booth and he doesnt want to stay home with his wife kicking his hick ass everyday.

Knowing how spiteful he is, He'll try getting something in the NFC North so he can try and seek vengeance on Green Bay.

Brett Favre files retirement papers

http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/news/story?id=6030210

MINNEAPOLIS -- Don't believe Brett Favre is finally done?

Well, the NFL's all-time leader of almost every major passing mark has at least filled out the forms.

Favre has made another move toward leaving the game for good by filing retirement papers with the league, NFL spokesman Greg Aiello confirmed Monday.

This is merely a procedural matter, to start the clock on a player's pension and Hall of Fame eligibility. It's worth noting, too, that Favre has done this before, only to change his mind. Retired players can request to be reinstated at any time.

But the news, first reported by Fox Sports on its website, was another sign that Favre's thrill-filled 20-year career has come to an end, as he repeatedly insisted throughout a painfully disappointing 2010 season for the Minnesota Vikings.

The 41-year-old threw for only 11 touchdowns in 13 games and was intercepted 19 times, finishing with a career-low 69.9 passer rating that ranked third-worst in the NFL among qualifying quarterbacks.

His body took quite a beating, getting knocked out of three different games while dealing with injuries to his elbow, foot, chin, neck, back, ribs and calf -- plus the sprained throwing shoulder that ended his all-time record streak of 297 straight regular-season games started. Then he suffered a concussion in what wound up being his last game, on Dec. 20 against the Chicago Bears.

"I know it's time, and that's OK. It is," Favre said after the season finale. "Again, I hold no regrets, and I can't think of too many players offhand that can walk away and say that. Individually and from a team standpoint, it was way more than I ever dreamed of."

Even if Favre were to change his mind, Vikings coach Leslie Frazier said earlier this month that he wants no part of a Favre return next season.

"I cannot think of any circumstance of where I would pick up the phone and say, 'Brett, do you want to come back next season?'" Frazier said at his introductory news conference. "I can't think of any circumstance where that would occur."

After years of waffling, Favre cried as he announced his retirement from the Green Bay Packers in March 2008. With the Vikings interested but the Packers unwilling to let him join their rival, he was traded to the New York Jets.

Following one season there, he declared he was done again in February 2009. The Vikings wooed him back to the field that summer, though, and they rode his renaissance performance -- 33 touchdowns and a mere seven interceptions -- to the NFC Championship Game. After needing another summer of persuasion to return in 2010, however, Favre wasn't the same and the Vikings slumped badly to 6-10 while going through all kinds of drama.

An accomplished rambler, Favre was as skilled at controlling the message in his news conferences as any athlete, his slow Southern drawl masking a razor-sharp ability to turn the conversation. It was on display throughout the 2010 season, especially when he was confronted about allegations that he sent lewd pictures and messages to Jenn Sterger, a former Jets sideline hostess.

In the end, he was fined $50,000 by the NFL for failing to cooperate with the investigation.

So now Favre has headed home to Mississippi, presumably for good as his two-year contract with the Vikings is expiring. Favre's official website even sent out a marketing e-mail blast over the weekend, advertising a "Thanks for the Memories" poster for sale. A portion of the proceeds goes to the Favre 4 Hope Foundation, which helps disadvantaged and disabled children and breast cancer patients.

That redneck isn't ready, willing or able to teach anybody any thing. Speng is right in that he'll probably sign on with a rival, but it wouldn't last more than a year. He'll be a first ballot hall of famer, then he'll be on celebrity rehab.

Favre: Packers will win Super Bowl

http://www.ibtimes.com/articles/102195/20110118/favre-packers-super-bowl.htm

Brett Favre, who has just retired from the NFL after twenty seasons, believes his original club, the Green Bay Packers will win the Super Bowl this year.

Favre told ESPN that the Packers are "by far" the best team remaining in the NFL playoffs and that quarterback Aaron Rodgers (who once replaced Favre) “is the best QB and the receiving corps is the best ever, maybe."

Favre added that Packers defensive coordinator Dom Capers and the defense “gets the MVP award at this stage."

The Packers face the Chicago Bears next weekend to determine the NFC championship, after having soundly defeated the Atlanta Falcons last week.

The last time the packers won a Super Bowl, in 1997 over the New England Patriots, Favre was their quarterback.

Favre left Green Back with much acrimony three years ago, and his recent unhappy excursions as a New York Jet and Minnesota Viking did much to tarnish what was otherwise a stellar Hall of Fame career.

He insists now that he carries no lingering bitterness over his departure from Green Bay in 2008. "I'm happy for them and very happy and content with my legacy," Favre told ESPN.
