Topic “Football”

Brett Favre coming out of retirement?

Brett Favre coming out of retirement?
Brett Favre is getting old.

I've heard talk around the sporting world that Favre is thinking about coming out of retirement, again, cus last time it went so well for him. If you couldn't guess from that slightly smart ass comment I just made, I'm not a really big fan of the idea.

Let me preface this by saying I like Favre. He's the kind of guy when he plays you can tell he really enjoys what he is doing. He enjoys playing football, and I really think the reason he keeps coming back over and over again is that he feels like he'll miss it too much to just stop. I admire that, and if he could still compete then I would admire that even more. But the problem is he can't. The guy in his old age is getting far more fragile, and last year the threw up a lot of interceptions. Is it a sad day for football that it's time for him to hang his helmet up? Yes, but don't forget Marino, Kelly, and Elway. These guys knew when their time was up and gracefully bowed out.

That's the key word that is missing with Favre, gracefully. I really appreciate when guys move to the city they play for and set up roots. Now let me just say that I'm a Miami fan, living in Western New York. It didn't help me too much growing up in "Bill's" territory, but at least my team won a Superbowl. Anyway, one guy I respect as a quarterback and I mentioned him in my last paragraph is Jim Kelly. The guy stopped at the right time, and he stopped for a good reason. His son had been diagnosed with Krabbe disease, and Kelly retired largely due to that. There are things more important in life that playing a game. Sometimes you need to stop, back away, and move on.
