Default Favre to retire....

http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/news/story?id=3898942

Without the tearful public ceremony that accompanied his retirement announcement from the Green Bay Packers just 11 months ago, quarterback Brett Favre has instructed agent Bus Cook to inform the New York Jets today that he plans to retire.

In an email to ESPN's Ed Werder, Favre indicated he had no regrets about finishing his career with the Jets rather than with the Green Bay Packers franchise he represented for his previous 16 NFL seasons. He specifically praised Tannenbaum, Jets owner Woody Johnson and fired coach Eric Mangini _ and even mentioned Thomas Jones and Kerry Rhodes, both of whom were publicly critical of Favre after the team's collapse in the final month of the season prevented the Jets from making the playoffs.

"Mike and Woody, as well as the entire organization, have been nothing short of outstanding,'' Favre said in the email. "My teammates _ Thomas and Kerry included _ were a pleasure to play with. Eric (Mangini) could not have been any better. I enjoyed playing for him. My time with the Jets was short, but I'm honored to be given that chance.''

They Patriots are not going to trade Cassel to the Jets. Never going to happen.

As for Favre retiring, good riddance.

And as for Rhodes and Jones complaining about him playing hurt, a 60% Brett Favre was still better than a 100% anyone else they had on the roster to play QB.

BINGO. That young man is going to have some tough decisions to make, but sadly, I think Lefty will be gone and I would be happy for him if he got a starting job with another team - he deserves it!

As for Favre - I love the guy and all he has brought to the game, but like Gary, I'll believe it when the season starts and #4 isn't on the field, whether it be in NY or somewhere else.

I'm kicking myself for not going to the Broke Spoke to see a game.

(The Broke Spoke is the most popular bar in Kiln.)
