Brett Favre offered up an interesting glimpse into his way of thinking in an interview with USA Today, saying that at the end of a long season he thinks he’s going to retire, but after a few months off he thinks he could play for another decade.
Favre said that six months ago, after the Vikings lost the NFC Championship, he firmly believed he was finished playing football.
“I can remember walking off that podium with Deanna and my family thinking, ‘I’m done,'” Favre said. “I mean, my heart . . . it was broken.”
But after an offseason of rest and relaxation, followed by ankle surgery and rehabilitation, Favre now says he doesn’t see any reason he should quit any time soon.
” You gotta quit sometime,” Favre said. “Then again, maybe I will be doing this when I’m 50 years old, who knows?”
Who knows, indeed. But Favre sure doesn’t sound like a man who’s going to retire any time soon.
