Favre on Coming Back: "Right Now, No"
By By Jay Sorgi
Brett Favre says if the Packers asked him to return for any reason, he'd have a level of trouble turning it down, but "for now, no."
He spoke with reporter and longtime friend Al Jones of the Biloxi Sun-Herald about the question regarding a possible return if the Packers needed him.
"It would be hard to pass up, I guess," he says in the Sun-Herald.
"But three months from now, say that presents itself, I may say, you know what, I'm so glad I made that decision. I'm feel very comfortable in what I'm doing and my decision.
"Yeah, I can probably be up there doing that and playing, but again, I don't know. It's only speculating. I think the world of that team. I had a lot of fun, not only this year, but over my career. Those guys I played with this past year, a lot of young guys, a lot of fun.
"I think of that, when I think of now being retired, I think I won't be in the quarterback/receiver meeting on Thursdays joking around and having fun and game plan and all that stuff together. It was a fun year. That was fun throwing the ball around like we did. There's no reason to think that won't happen again. Aaron has fallen into a great situation. And if that opportunity presented itself and they did call, it would be tempting. And I very well could be enticed to do it.
"But I don't want to do it if I'm not in shape. It would be hard to go up there at 38. It was hard to stay in shape. I say that, I worked out and I worked out hard. Week in and week out, I was just drained. Finally, for the first time, I felt, not that 38 is old, but I looked around at practice and these guys are bouncing around. And I practiced every day and all the time people would ask me, god, how do you do it? Inside I'm saying, 'I have no idea.' It's a struggle.
"I guess the best response would be, right now no (I'm not coming back).
"I'm happy with my decision. Just taking it one day at a time."
