GULFPORT, Miss. (AP) - If the Green Bay Packers are ravaged by injuries this season, Brett Favre might consider returning should the team reach out to him.

"It would be hard to pass up, I guess," he told the Biloxi (Miss.) Sun Herald. "But three months from now, say that presents itself, I may say, you know what, I'm so glad I made that decision. I'm feel very comfortable in what I'm doing and my decision.

"Yeah, I can probably be up there doing that and playing, but again, I don't know. It's only speculating. I think the world of that team. I had a lot of fun, not only this year, but over my career."

But if Aaron Rodgers went down with an injury?

"Aaron has fallen into a great situation," Favre said. "And if that opportunity presented itself and they did call, it would be tempting. And I very well could be enticed do it."

Favre understands the kind of challenge he would face should he opt to go back to the NFL after ending his record-setting 17-year career. And he made it clear he is not changing his mind at this time.

"But to think that if they called me in October and told me, 'Hey, we need you this week.' That would be hard," Favre said in a story that appeared on the paper's Web site on Tuesday. "I'm sure mentally, I would be refreshed. I'd be away from it for a long time. But mentally versus physically, the last thing I'd want to do is go up and it's 'Oh this is great' and all that stuff and me be excited and then just flop.

"You just can't show up and play."

There has been a steady flow of speculation that Favre would have a change of heart in the wake of the March 4 announcement the league's only three-time MVP was retiring.

"I guess the best response would be, right now no," he said of a possible return to the game.

Favre added he would not return unless he was in shape.

"It would be hard to go up there at 38. It was hard to stay in shape. I say that, I worked out and I worked out hard," he said. "Week in and week out, I was just drained. Finally, for the first time, I felt, not that 38 is old, but I looked around at practice and these guys are bouncing around. And I practiced every day and all the time people would ask me ... 'How do you do it? Inside I'm saying, 'I have no idea.' It's a struggle."

Retirement Remorse, but he admitted that he didn't have the "drive" to do the day to day stuff that it takes to compete at the High Level that he was at last year. It would be bad for him to come back. He should sit out, a couple years, spend time with the family, then think about coming back as a QB coach. Maybe at the College level.

he'll be back sooner or later. theres been too much of this rumbling since he retired for him not to end up playing again. where theres smoke theres fire.

Funny thing is that it's not the people in Green Bay who are driving this, it's Farve himself.

All the Green Bay fans I know are ready to move on.
