Its official, I dont want Brett Favre to retire

After watching 40-year-old Brett Favre play in a losing effort Sunday, I decided that no matter how angry Ive gotten at him in the past, the NFL will always be better with Brett Favre taking snaps.

Sure theres been times when I flipped to ESPN during the off-season and shouted, Would you just retire or not retire PLEASE? No doubt Ive cussed Favre out from afar after seeing him become emotional about leaving the game for good and then saying hes not coming back and then retiring again and then coming back again. That being said, though, I think we all need to realize just how great and exciting Favre is.

Sundays game against the Saints demonstrated why every fan of the NFL should appreciate him. How did the game come about to end the way it did? By Brett Favre trying to complete a pass that only he could, and throwing an interception when the Vikings were in field goal territory.

Vintage Brett.

He has always been the gunslinger. Knowing that one pass could lead to either a long touchdown or catastrophic turnover, he fires away. Its the same Brett every series, every pass, every game.

But throughout the years, weve gotten used to more than just Favres live or die attitude in playing QB. Weve seen how mentally strong he is playing through extreme sadness after losing his father, donning a shaved head while his wife underwent treatment, starting every game for nearly as many years as Ive been alive.

And on Sunday, we saw more of the same. Favre was crushed right after throwing a pass and was grabbing his ribs in pain. He didnt come out of the game. He gets hit low and needs help off the field. After getting his ankle re-taped, he hobbled back onto the field for more not missing a single play.

When I saw Favre getting helped off the field, and this is coming from someone who once considered himself a drinker of Favre haterade, I could only think one thing this is not how I want to see Favre go out.

Although I had no rooting interest in the game, I slowly started pulling for the quarterback who has annihilated the Lions almost every game from my adolescence to now.

For the first time ever, I am finding myself saying I want Brett Favre to come back.

I think all NFL fans, deep down, feel the same way.

Eh, I think he can do what he wants to do. Dude got his ass KICKED in that last game, and you know other teams watched that and decided that was exactly what they were going to do if they got another shot at him. I wouldn't blame him if he decided that part of the game was no longer any fun. Or if he wants to play again, that's fine. For whatever reason, after that game I stopped feeling any emotion about the topic whatsoever.

I would say, for the fans that love him so much, do you really want him to keep taking beatings like that? Maybe it's time for you all to love him in the booth, or on ESPN or wherever he'd show up - you know, somewhere large men aren't trying to dismember him.

Easier said than done. Teams have ALWAYS known that if they could put a few hits on Brett, it would rattle him; just like any quarterback. The Saints didn't unlock any secrets. They just executed very well.

I think 90 percent of my interest in Favre now is because of his wife and, perhaps, his daughter (if that's who the other attractive blackhaired woman in the NFCC photos is).

Shrug.

Now the one I want to retire is Peyton Manning. Preferably in the next week.

THIS.

The Cards 'unlocked' the secrets to beating the Vikings and confusing Brett.. Or so what people said.

Someone forgot to tell the Bengals, Giants, Cowboys, and to some degree, the Saints what the Cards did.

Or maybe they just executed great, and the Vikings didn't bother showing up?
