Brett Favre files retirement papers


Well, the NFL's all-time leader of almost every major passing mark has at least filled out the forms.

Favre has made another move toward leaving the game for good by filing retirement papers with the league, NFL spokesman Greg Aiello confirmed Monday.

his is merely a procedural matter, to start the clock on a player's pension and Hall of Fame eligibility. It's worth noting, too, that Favre has done this before, only to change his mind. Retired players can request to be reinstated at any time.But the news, first reported by Fox Sports on its website, was another sign that Favre's thrill-filled 20-year career has come to an end, as he repeatedly insisted throughout a painfully disappointing 2010 season for the Minnesota Vikings.

The 41-year-old threw for only 11 touchdowns in 13 games and was intercepted 19 times, finishing with a career-low 69.9 passer rating that ranked third-worst in the NFL among qualifying quarterbacks.

All which should of been filled at the end of the '07 season, with him retiring as a Packer and being remembered as one of the most exciting dudes to ever play the position who gave every last drop he had for the cause; instead of being remembered for a whiny ass drama queen that ended up making a complete ass of himself at the end of his career.

Praise the Lord this ridiculous saga is finally all but done.
