Twitter.com users have always said that Brett Favre was undoubtedly one of the best quarterbacks to ever step on to the field. When it came time for the gunslinger to hang up the cleats it was an extremely tough decision for him and it really turned many fans sour. He repeatedly would say he is going to retire but then change his mind and say he was going to play one more year. Eventually the flip flopping became a side-show that no one wanted to see anymore. Favre will be inducted into the NFL Hall of Fame in a few weeks and was recently asked if he thinks he can still play.
Brett Favre will be on the cover of Sports Illustrated’s “Where Are They Now?” issue next month. Favre retired from the NFL in 2010 and is now 45 years old. During the interview Favre stated that he for sure thinks he can still play in the NFL. He stated that he understands that he could not lead a team but her certainly feels he could still play. He also admitted that he realizes that he can no longer throw the ball as far as he once could but he can still sling it a good fifty yards. Favre played 20 years in the NFL and eighteen of those were with the Green Bay Packers. His last stink in the league was the final two years of his career when he played for the Minnesota Vikings.
