Brett Favre's return for another season is "highly unlikely, but it has been an awesome year," the Minnesota Vikings quarterback told ESPN's Ed Werder after the Vikings' loss to the New Orleans Saints in the NFC Championship Game on Sunday.
Favre, who returned to the NFL from retirement with the goal of leading the Vikings to a championship, fell just short when his pass with seconds left in regulation was intercepted. The Saints won in overtime to advance to the franchise's first-ever Super Bowl.
The physical punishment Brett Favre absorbed during Sunday's NFC Championship left the veteran QB hurting late in the game.
Favre also told Werder before the game that not one Vikings player had inquired about his future because they were so focused on the game.
So in other words...lather, rinse, repeat.
