    10 years ago I predicted that Favre would not leave football till he suffered a season ending injury that would become career ending. It so seems that happened with the concussion he still hasn't really recovered from yet.

    It's sad to see someone with so great a career end in such a cinematic disaster, but in a way, it's appropriate. Jerry Glanville in 1991 labeled him a trainwreck after barely surviving training camp with his boozing and partying, and was wrong... for 20 years until he ended as one.

    Sex scandal, 2 false retirements and a season of disastrous play... with a backdrop of a collapsing metrodome symbolically mimicing the Viking's season and a greek chorus foretelling doom for Childress. Favre tempted fate one too many times, and he has now ended as a punchline that will take years to clean off before people remember him as the paragon he once was with the Packers. Erased, except to Vikings fans will be that glorious single season where he almost made it to the super bowl one last time.

    As Beethoven said as his last words:

    "Friends, applaud. The comedy is finished."

    I am not sure I am convinced he is actually retiring. He's done it so much..

    LOL. No no. I don't think any team would touch him with a 10 meter cattle prod. Jen Sterger probably would though... repeatedly. I think his spirit is finally broken.

    I predicted this 14 years ago...and I wrote it down, had it notarized, and I buried it in my back yard.

    Once the snow melts and the ground thaws, I will dig it up and prove it.

    But did you draw a treasure map to lead back to it?

    Yeah, pretty sure it's for real this time. His streak is over, and so I don't think he has anything left to play for. Have we seen the last of him? Doubt it. I'm sure he'll be an analyst or something, but he's taken his last snap.

    Let's face it. Few make it 10 years much less twenty.
