    Good timing. He went out with a nice showing. He's not injured.

    Agree with this. The Lions might actually win a game at Lambeau now.

    Is Favre the best QB ever? It's worth discussing. He has three MVPs. Joe Montana might come up for sure, but could Montana throw the long ball like Favre? Montana threw all those short balls and mid-range balls.

    Marino? No ring but a great arm.

    Brady? Jury's still out.

    Bradshaw? Great arm and a great leader. Now a goofball.

    Staubach? Aikman? Young? Unitas? Others?

    Favre seemed to LOVE the game more than anyone else.

    It's a little weird that he wasn't at the press conference. Announcing your retirement via Chris Mortensen's voice mail seems like an anti-climactic way for a player that great to bow out.

    Remember Barry Sanders retirement notice? I don't think he even notified the Lions. He just faxed a letter to the Wichita Eagle.

    Yeah, I do remember that. Those weird anti-climactic retirements are pretty rare, so they tend to be memorable!

    ESPN dedicated most of their day to Favre so if decides to unretire, then they either wasted a full day of praise or they will be responsible for bringing him back.

    Now he has time to appear in the sequal or spin off to "There's Something about Mary" called "There's Something about Faarvere":) Or "Green Bay is no Country for old QB's"

    Most TV pundits were rating Favre anywhere from 4th to 7th on the list of all time QBs. They say his shortcoming is only one Super Bowl victory. They're a bunch of deuce-bags...........:)

    Favre held a press conference today to explain his decision to retire and got emotional, so I guess that'll satisfy any fan's desire for "closure" more than the voice mail announcement to ESPN.

    We really needed some "closure" on the Barry Sanders retirement.

    The teal was bad, but I always liked the horsepower
