Brett Favre: I Swear This Time, I Am All Done Disappointin NFL Fans and Phone-Pic Recipients

He was motivated, I guess, on continuing his unbroken-starts record. Now that that record is arrested (he didn't start a game earlier this season, and didn't start the last game, either) I guess he's finally finished.

The 41-year-old quarterback sat out Minnesota's season-ending loss to the Lions on Sunday with a concussion, and it appears that perhaps the toughest man to ever play in the NFL had his career end not on the field trying to rally the Vikings to another victory, but on the bench as a third-string rookie floundered in Favre's place.

No one -- not even Brett Favre -- can play forever.

"I know it's time, and that's OK. It is," Favre said after the 20-13 defeat. "Again, I hold no regrets, and I can't think of too many players offhand that can walk away and say that. Individually and from a team standpoint, it was way more than I ever dreamed of."

Favre seems to have a lot of h8rs. I like that he played into his forties.
