April Fool's day we heard the big announcement that Brett Favre was coming back for one more year, the story seemed to be picked up by newspapers and TV and spread nationwide in no time, well... it was April Fools. Then we read the official reports from Brett that he is retired and not coming back.
So today I'm driving to my office and what comes on the radio but yet another report from non-less then Brett Favre. According to the news report Brett is happy with his decision to retire BUT, if the Green Packers needed him to come back in an emergency he probably would. In the back of mind I'm wondering what does that exactly mean? You don't just retire and hang out at your house and if the phone rings jump right into an NFL game. Is Brett going to continue training? Also I'm thinking he never did officially give his resignation in writing, does this mean he will officially or unofficially stay on a reserve list?
Personally I'm adjusting to the fact that Aaron Rodgers is "our" new quarterback and I'm confident he'll do an excellent job. As for the Brett Favre reports; this has been a roller-coaster ride for all of us living here in the Fox Cities area, I guess Brett has become a part of all of our lives. Good luck to both of our quarterbacks.
