Brett Favre says he's still 'done with football'

Brett Favre toured a Wrangler facility that was destroyed by a tornado in Hackleburg, Alabama (he's a spokesman, obviously, and from the area). And you'll never guess what someone asked him about.

No, it actually wasn't what more people can do to assist in helping to rebuild the southern areas that have been devastated by the tornados. It was whether or not he's coming back to football in 2011.

The best part, of course, was that Marion County Commission President Don Barnwell was the one who asked Favre about his potential return.

And Favre, per the Associated Press, told Barnwell he was "done with football."

He also said that he wasn't sure if there "would be any football" in 2011, so maybe he's just slow-playing things.

Or perhaps he's just angling for a chance at mentoring Cam Newton.

He received the same greeting Ryan Longwell and darren Sharper got on their return visit. Play for someone in your division and thats what you get! My Favre jersey stays in closet until he goes into HOF then I will wear it proudly

Wow redwings1969! I hope you stay consistant even when Favre goes into the HOF. You must be a true blue long time packer fan.

It will be fun to watch how the packer fans welcome back Favre. They have done a great job of showing their hatred toward him since he left.  I can easily predict the cheese heads will forgive the history and become his best supporter once again. Time will prove me right. I was at the first Viking/Packer game at lambeu when Favre with the Vikings won. At his intro, there was the loudest and most disrespectful greeting for a guy that put in 16 years of "give all I can give you" football. Once the fans saw how fortunate they were to have another HOF QB potential Rogers, and that Favre has officially called it quits, they are going to show love and welcome Favre back in. He does bellong in, most egnighting QB in packer history. Just sad and ironic how packer fans will flip on him now that he is retired. Am I wrong packer fans?

I don't know which is more agnonizing and pathetic. The NFL lockout or Brett Farve. Maybe he will return for the There's Something About Mary 2.

Brett could really stick it to the Packers if he works for another arch rival like the Bears. The Bears should hire Brett Favre as their quarterbacks coach and maybe Brett can teach Jay Cutler how to be tough.


Maybe Brett can teach Jay how to throw more interceptions too.  Oops my bad what was I thinking. Jay Cutler is already an interception throwing machine and he is on pace to break Farve's "Most Interceptions in a Career" record.
