Brett Favre: “I’m done.”

Brett Favre reiterated on Wednesday that this will be his final season.

“I’m done, I’m done,” he told the Minneapolis Star Tribune.

Uh, huh.

John Paulsen asked me if I thought Lord Favre meant what he said. My response? I think he means it………………right now.

Favre has had a tough year but we’ve been through this all before. He said at the beginning of the season that this would be his last, but he’s complemented retirement before only to return the following year. He even held a press conference with the Packers saying that he was retired and then – surprise! – he changed his mind and wound up in a New York Jets uniform.

Favre needs the spotlight, although even I have to admit that after this Jenn Sterger debacle he may mean it this time. His play has also fallen off a cliff and unless he puts up MVP-like numbers over these last five weeks, it’s doubtful that he’ll convince himself that he still has it and return for another year.

That said, his word means nothing when it comes to retirement. Until he files the paperwork and is nowhere near a NFL stadium for the opener of 2011, I don’t believe a word that comes out of his mouth.
