The Legend Retires

In a move not many saw coming, Brett Favre has announced he will be leaving the game. After giving indications during the playoffs that he would be in Green and Gold for another campaign, along with the confident speculation of many close to him, most are shocked that the old gunslinger is succumbing to the weariness of the mental fatigue that comes along with playing a game at it’s highest level and having such lofty expectations placed on you by not only the fans, team mates, and coaches, but by yourself as well. In a message to ESPN’s Chris Mortenson, “ I know I can still play, but it’s like I told my wife , I’m just mentally tired. I’m just tired.” He continued, saying he would only be satisfied in a return with a Super Bowl win and that given those personal expectations he was not prepared to face that challenge or the possibility of not reaching that goal.
