How long can Brett Favre take to decide whether he is fit to play in 2006? This is killing the fans. It is like everyone but he knows Favre needs to step down. The Green Bay Packers were great once under the leadership of Brett Favre, but they can’t be again. It is a simple case of Brett not having the same fire he had in his youth. It is ok though. He had a lot of good years with the Green Bay Packers and retiring now will earn him the respect of fans and players alike. There is something to be said for quitting while you are ahead. He’s not going to be ahead for long. There will come a time when people stop having faith in him despite his storied past.
