SO LONG BRETT FAV-RUH

He’s one of the best to ever play the position, he’s a Super Bowl Champion, a lock for Canton and he has a famous movie line in Something About Mary.

So, really, what is there left to do?

Evidently, nothing.

Brett Favre is riding into the sunset after a 17 year NFL career. Tuesday’s surprise move comes just months since the 38-year-old three-time MVP set several league records, including most career touchdown passes, in one of his most successful seasons.

Coach Mike McCarthy said Favre informed him of the decision by telephone Monday night.

“He said it was time for him to hang up the cleats,” McCarthy said at a news conference Tuesday afternoon.

(Ummm...until August when it's time to pick them up again?)
