    So Favre is a grandpa now and I think it would be really cool if he came back yet again to play. haha how awesome would that be to have a grandpa playing in the NFL and still kick some major butt? I love Favre. NFL’s greatest icon IMO. [=}=]

    Gonna disagree on this one. Now that he’s a grandfather, I say pour your time into spoiling your grandkids. I love the decision Warner made for his family, and at their ages, I think it’s the sensible route. No doubt that Favre can still play. Question is, can he still recover from that play? Each year he looks slower and slower at getting over those harsh hits, and by the end of season this year he looked like he could hardly walk.

    I say ‘Give up on the image; forget trying to prove something; You’ve shown you’ve got what it takes. Go be with your family’[/i:1v9joqjr] :thumbup

    Okay how do you pronounce Favre’s Last name ? Farve or Fav-rey? :?:

    At one time it was actually spelled with the silent “T” on the end and would be pronounced Fav-rey like the french hat beret pronounced ber-rey. ](*,) He’s a french cajun too. For what ever reason his family dropped the T on the end. :whistle :whistle :whistle

    Did you play a role in your father coming back to the NFL? Well I would say that I played a role in his return. I wanted him to play. He’s still great, what’s the point in wasting all that talent? Not to mention, football is a game. Although some have turned it into a business, there’s still a few special people in the league that realize its a game and my dad is one of those. He deserves to be there.

    Working in Childress’ favor had been the reaction of Favre’s daughter, Breleigh, 10, three weeks earlier. Favre said Breleigh remained neutral on the subject of him playing again until the news broke that he was going to stay retired.

    “After the news broke, she started crying,” Favre said. “Anybody that’s got children — I can be chased by five defensive lineman and it doesn’t scare me, but when my daughter cries, it softens me up. And she said ‘Daddy, I wanted you to go back and win one more Super Bowl.’ And I said ‘Oh, why didn’t you tell me before?’ And she said ‘Well, I didn’t want to make that decision for you.’

    “It’s amazing what you learn from your children. She said, ‘Can you go back?’ And I said, ‘Well, it’s too late.’ So I found myself this morning tearing up as I brought her to school and she said, ‘Daddy, it’s going to be fine. You go up there and do what you’ve got to do. We’ll be up there soon enough.’ I think I made the right decision, I really do. Time will tell. All I can say is I’m going to do the best I can.”

    Couldn’t have said it better Chris.

    His family has been there for him for how many years now? It’s time for him to be with his family.

    I’ll quite honest I don’t care. I’m sick of people like Faver, Jordan and others that play the whole I’m going to retire, wait no I’m not. Honestly I begin to wonder if them saying they are retiring is just a PR stunt so “when” they decide to play again a few months later it’s a huge news story and they get the attention.

    I don’t really care what the news says; its just the waffling that drives me nuts. I think he needs to ask his kids and wife what they want rathern than what they want for him. [=}=]

    Guess I’ll just chose to believe what his children say.
