What was he thinking?

Brett Favre picked a bad time to come back from retirement. After just over 4 Months of retirement, Brett now has "the itch" to play again. He announced his comeback yesterday, with a bombshell thrown in there: He doesn't want to play for the Packers. Shortly after that, the Packers issued a statement saying that "if Brett wants to play, he can play on our team as a back up." They also said that he will not be released from the team.

The only other option for Brett is a trade but, unfortunately, the Packers have also said that they will not trade Brett Favre and, there have not been any inquiries from other teams about trades.

This issue is very confusing, not just to me and other sports fans, but also to the Packers front office. Mike McCarthy, Packers head coach said this: "He [Brett] continually, from [June] 21 to July 8, told James Campen that he was not going to play. So that's a pretty important piece of the puzzle." On July 8, Brett Favre told the Packers that he was committed to play.

My opinion on this mess is that the Packers should just let Favre go. Let him go to another team and ruin his legacy.

No matter what happens, Favre's legacy will not be 'ruined.' He has had a great enough career that he will be remembered as one of the most QB's of all-time but right now everyone is done with him and his time has passed. There comes a time when enough is enough and Brett already announced that he has had his. So, why are you coming back Brett?
