For the third time, and maybe final, Brett Favre is reportedly retiring from football.  The Minnesota Vikings quarterback was once again wavering on coming back in a quest to avenge an NFC Championship loss to the New Orleans Saints, but it now appears that the Purple People Eaters will have to look elsewhere for a QB.  Last season Favre had on his his most impressive statistical season with  career bests in completion percentage (68.4), quarterback rating (107.2) and fewest interceptions (7), while throwing for 33 TDs and 4,202.  Those numbers, a great defense, and a talented offense made many think coming back was a formality especially after off season surgery to correct an ankle injury.  If this is indeed the final time we see grey beard I will miss him, because even though he causes drama every off season he is fun to watch on the field.  The former Green Bay Packer and New York Jet will go down as one of the greatest to every play the game.
