I have a hard time believing it but Brett Favre has apparently decided to retire. What is this, the 10th time?

Brett Favre has informed his Vikings teammates that he will not return for another season in Minnesota, the Star-Tribune reported Tuesday.

Favre has sent text messages to teammates saying, "This is it," league sources told ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter.

Neither Favre nor the Vikings have confirmed the news but a press release is expected Tuesday, the sources said.

"This is it eh!" Was it over when the Germans bombed Pearl Harbor? Neither are fucking true and I have a hard time believing Favre is actually going to retire coming off the season he did last year. He was a legit Pro Bowler(4200 yards and 33 TD with only 7 INTs) and should have had the Vikings in the Super Bowl if he didn't pull another Favre and throw a late pick in the NFC Title game.

If he is retiring well then the Vikings are pretty much fucked. Tarvaris Jackson would now be their starting quarterback. The drop off is deeper than the Grand Canyon.

I hope it's true but I don't believe it. We have all been burned way too many times by Mr. Wrangler with this retirement BS. If it's true it helps the Atlanta Falcons enormously which I will be grateful. If it's not well then Favre can go fuck himself. And I mean that politely.
