Brett Favre has become very popular over the past several years for his offseason soap operas. After every year he has an interview and cries about how much he will miss football once he retires. A few of those years he never even retired. The last two times he did retire, he opted to unretire and play another season.
Brett Favre appeared on "The Tonight Show" with Jay Leno Thursday Night. To start it off the crowd cheered, "One more year! One more year! One more year!"
Then, they talked about the season a little bit, and Favre talked about how thankful he was for being given the opportunity to play for such a talented team.
Towards the end of the interview Leno asked what many have asked for several years now, "So Brett, what are your thoughts on next year?"
Then Favre answered with the most popular words that come out of his mouth, "I'm not gonna say anything anytime soon. I'm just gonna kind of sit back, relax, and not rush my decision."
So, this raises many questions. Will Brett Favre be back? When will he decide if he comes back? When will he finally call it quits? Will he continue to play at a high level?
It is simple answer; Brett Favre will be back next year. He had one of the best years of his career last year. But, he ended it on a sour note by throwing an interception to Tracy Porter. That ended regulation, and the Saints scored on their first drive in OT. Therefore, he will be back to try and make up for the mistake he made.
Had he won the Superbowl he would have been done, but Favre is a competitor and wants to win another Superbowl. So, you can definitely count on him being back for one more season.
I think he will decide around training camp whether he will be back again or not. He waits until the last minute to make his decision. So, that makes me believe he will do that once again.
After this year he will be done. His body is getting worn down as he gets older. You can hide the fact that you are hurt or in pain, but you can't hide the fact that you are worn down and no longer have the ability to go another year.
I also think the days of playing good at this old of an age are over. The best he will be able to do is pull of what he did with the Jets: Start off as a hero until about mid-season, then continually go downwards from then. There are only so many hits that a 40-year old man can take.
Don't get me wrong, I am a Brett Favre lover. But, Favre's continual, "I am going to retire or aren't I?" saga has gone on way too long. He just needs to choose whether or not he'll return, so the coaches and organization can set up their plans for him.
