Favre Talks About "R" Word
It's the time of the year again for Brett Favre's retirement ruminations.
The subject came up Tuesday during the Green Bay Packers quarterback's weekly news conference. Favre said he's undecided about whether he'll play next season.
He has played far better this season than last season, throwing 17 touchdown passes and 15 interceptions for a Packers team that's still in the NFC wild-card race with a record of 6-8. Last season, Favre threw 20 touchdown passes to go with a career-high 29 interceptions as the Packers went 4-12, leading to the firing of Mike Sherman as their coach.
"I know I can do it," Favre said Tuesday. "I really don't believe that's a question. In fact, say I were to retire, I know I'd feel guilty: 'I've still got some talent here to use.' I'd hate to waste it. There's probably been a lot of guys that have done that. But I would much rather look at it that way than stick around and go: 'I used to make that throw, but I can't make it any more. I'm selfish and I wanted to stick around anyway.' [But] I still don't see that. I still see that I can make those throws."
