Obviously this isn’t the first time we’ve heard this, but according to a source, Brett Favre told the Vikings that he is done. Now first of all, I’m not too sure I believe it. Not the source, but just the fact that he is going to finally retire.
If he does retire, then wow what a selfish player. The Vikings are basically relying on him to be great next season, and less than a week away from pre-season kickoff, he decides he’s going to retire. So now they have to get some other guy ready to be the starter after Favre was doing nothing for this whole time since the end of last season. This is why I have disliked Favre for the last few seasons. You just don’t do this to a team. You don’t tell them you’re thinking about it for months, and moments before the season you change your mind ten more times. Yeah there’s probably health issues involved and if that is the reason he waits until right before the season starts, then you should just retire.
