Favre's Last Game?

After 17 seasons, a Super Bowl Championship, 3 MVP awards, and 274 consecutive starts, Brett Favre may have ended his career highlighting one of his many all-time records. Unfortunately for Brett, the Packers and the entire cheesehead nation, it was his record number interceptions. In overtime, of last nights NFC Championship game v. the New York football Giants, Favre threw one into the hands of Corey Webster in Packers territory. Leaving the team in a predicament only a Feely-like performance could get them out of. Lawrence Tynes made the field goal sending the Giants to the Super Bowl for the first time since 2001, where they lost to the Trent Dilfer and the Ravens.

Back to Favre, this shouldn't be the way one of the greatest quarterbacks calls it quits. The last two offseasons he's created a stir, making us wondering if he would return or not. Last season it didn't seem right, he couldn't leave the game with a team that couldn't even make the playoffs. So, he returned. And this season has been nothing less than magical for Brett Favre and the Packers. It was a season Favre could hang his hat on with pride. But, that interception in overtime this evening was not. Favre has said that he feels he could continue playing. But, will he? Should he? Maybe its too much to ask for the perfect way to leave, he's had a near perfect career, what else does he want? Personally, I would love to see Favre come back and try one more time, but I don't see it happening. He already has a ring, and every quarterback record imaginable, the only reason he would come back is if Donald Driver, Mark Tauscher and the rest of the team try to convince him to stick around. I also think Favre will hang up pigskin... hang up pigskin? and his cleats, ah save, because he wants Aaron Rodgers to get his chance. A guy who resembles Favre in some ways, and someone he, Favre, feels confident in succeeding him. So, here's to a guy I call the greatest quarterback ever to grace the game of football, hopefully he'll make the best decision for himself and his family over the offseason.

Question to Consider: Why are the Giants referred to the New York "Football" Giants? A baseball team with the same name, "Giants" doesn't play in New York any more, are Giants fans just stupid and need to have the sport spelled out to them?
