Favre Will NOT Join the Vikings

After another off season of soul searching, Brett Favre informed the Vikings that he will not join them this season.  According to Favre, the decision was very difficult and emotional. “It was the hardest decision I’ve ever made,” Favre told ESPN. “I didn’t feel like physically I could play at a level that was acceptable. I would like to thank everyone, including the Packers, Jets and Vikings – but, most importantly, the fans.”

Personally, I’m relieved.  It was hard on us too.  He was our quarterback.  My first Packer memories were of Brett Favre.  My greatest football memories were of Brett Favre.  I didn’t want his legend tarnished.  I didn’t want to have to hate him this season.  Now, I don’t.

Thank you Brett.  Thank you for your career in Green Bay.  Thank you for the memories.  Enjoy your retirement.  You will be remembered as the legend that you are.
