Favre again files for retirement with NFL

2 posts in this topic

"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 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 Favre 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"

Had he only retired for real back in 2008 his career would not be the punch line it is today.
