The never-ending Brett Favre saga continues, as the "retired" quarterback and the Minnesota Vikings plan to meet about a possible return.

Favre is officially the Michael Jordan of football, but even Jordan actually left basketball a couple years before coming out of his second retirement.

Though I believe Favre truly didn't plan on playing this season, his unexpected release from the New York Jets gave him the option to play for the team he wanted to play for a year ago in Minnesota.

Favre wants to go out on top as does any future Hall of Fame player. However, when is enough enough?

Favre nearly turned a team against itself when he retired, and he tried to return to the Green Bay Packers only to find the Packers' front office was ready to move on without him.

Then he goes to the Jets, who, after his retirement, move on and decide to draft their future quarterback in Mark Sanchez and cut Favre. Now Favre is trying to play for the Vikings, who some say are a quarterback away from making a run to the Super Bowl.

I disagree with that statement, especially with the Bears making a very competitive push themselves.

My question is: What happens next year, Brett, if and when the Vikings don't make the Super Bowl? Will you start the saga all over or just retire already?

For me, enough is enough.

Hang it up, Brett. Enjoy your home and your future Hall of Fame introduction. It's time for everyone to move on.
