I’m not saying this retirement is a smokescreen, but I have been thinking about it.

We know Farve was disappointed when the Packers failed to sign Randy Moss before New England snapped him up. We also know that Brett can be temperamental and is prone to the occasional tantrum (ain’t we all?). I can’t help but think that Brett might have been thinking this season that Moss might have been the one thing that Green Bay needed to push them over the top. That maybe, just maybe, the records that Tom Brady was shattering during the regular season could have been his (along with all the career records he burst along the way), and also, that it might have been possible that if Moss had come to Green Bay, he would have found a way to win the Super Bowl. All this is just speculation, of course, but it’s not much of a stretch for me to believe that he could have seen the Super Bowl and thought, “Hey, if that’d been me, I’d have won the game.”

And how coincidental was it that Brett retired the day after his coveted free-agent WR signed his contract to remain a Patriot? Much?

All I’m saying is that I would not be surprised to see Favre playing next year. Not in Green Bay, though. If anything, this retirement was from Green Bay. It might have been from football, sure, I’m just not convinced yet. So who would benefit from the grizzled vet who’s never missed a game in his football career? There are plenty of teams who need a proven QB, but I don’t think Brett would go to any team without a 1-year contract worth at least about 10-million guaranteed. And it would have to be a team that was right there, a team that just needed the one key component, a gunslinger, to run the O.

I’m not saying it will happen, I’m just saying I wouldn’t be surprised in the least if it did.
