Brett Favre says he's really done with football

We wouldn't blame you if you were skeptical, but Brett Favre says he's definitely done with football.

Speaking at his inaugural 7-on-7 football camp on the campus of Southern Mississippi, the former three-time NFL MVP told the Sun Herald that “I can still throw the ball as well as I ever have. No question about that,” before adding “I don’t want to put my body through that anymore. I’ve been beat up enough.”

And that's the truth. Always known for his toughness in the pocket, a 40-year-old Favre took an absolute beating last season. On December 5, he was knocked out of the Week 13 game against the Bills. Two weeks later, facing the Bears, Favre took the last vicious hit of his career when Corey Wootton drove him into the frozen turf face first.



After 20 years in the NFL, Favre, now 41, isn't quite sure what to do with himself. Other than the "Brett Favre 7 on 7 at The Rock" camp, which is just a one-day affair, the man who holds just about every NFL passing record imaginable has a lot of time on his hands. He says he likes working with young players "but in what capacity, I'm not really sure yet. … [I don't have any] plans right now and we'll see where that takes me."

Obviously, that means Favre's mounting an NFL comeback. That's a joke. We think.

I know you might think he is not done yet because he always comes back, but he is done. He gets injured more and more every year. This guy is old though, I mean 41 year olds in the NFL getting thrown around at quarterback... NO!! HE IS A FREAKING MUMMY!

Favre is/was/will be the best to ever play the game. He will be greatly missed and football will not be the same on Sundays.

He could run for congress. Weiner picks are all the rage right now. On a side note, how many times have we read articles preaching concussion safety and highly critical comments by the "professional" writers employed by this site over the media's glorification of "viscious hits". Or as Petey Prisco like to say "some idiot getting to yell jacked up on his sports broadcast replay". And the clip this site decides to run is *BELL RUNG* Brett Farve knocked out. So CBS is one of those idiots I suppose.

Thank God!!!!!!  Good riddance. Went from one of the best QB's in NFL history to a complete class-less a-hole. The "I'm done, I'm not done, I'm done, I'm not done" got super old the first time he pulled. I wonder if he'll notice now that there are other people in the world, maybe even his own wife! Maybe he'll become a photographer, he's already famous for his 'work'.
