Let's stipulate that Brett Favre is the greatest Packer of them all. Let's also stipulate that he's made my beloved Packers worth watching for a decade and a half. And let's also stipulate that he certainly has enough gas left in the tank to continue playing.
But he's retired. And once he made that decision, he should stick to it. It's not fair to Aaron Rodgers, the Packers or Packer fans to keep this dance going on, which Favre did again yesterday by hinting he might come back if the Packers need him.
Brett, we all love you. Always have, always will. But now you need to stay away. Come back in September and we'll retire your jersey. And if you're ever in New Brighton, feel free to stop by. But please stay retired. This stuff is getting tiresome.
