To retire or not to retire, so many choices, so much drama.

Hey, at his age, it's like putting in a few months of work for BIG BUCKS; I'll bet he laughs all the way to the bank; I know I would.

I am not sure that he knows what he wants except more money!

Considering that football is all he has ever done (aside from endorsements) I say good for him. If he can still play and loves to do so, why not? It is normally a short lived career .... make hay while the sun shines applies here as well.

I think he truly has a love for the game. He loves to play. You do not have to be old to get hurt in football, but the older you are your odds go up.
I am a Farve fan, I think he is a great QB,person, and player. I am not a big fan of all the drama. I wonder how he would be as an QB coach, or up in the booth? I really do not think the money matters to him. He has lots of ways of making more money than any of us.

I've been thinking about this and although he presents the drama to us it is the media which, pardon the pun, takes the ball and runs with it.

But still, I wonder if when he arrived at the stadium, blonde women wearing horned helmets threw rose petals in his path as Ride of the Valkyries played.

Oh I have no doubt that once he does hang up his jersey for good he will end up on ESPN or FOX as a sports announcer. QB coach is another possibility because there have been several REALLY good QBs that were his backup that i am sure learned a lot from just playing under him...

NBC Sports hyped his return all week and then he is in and out in about 4 minutes including the commercials.
