01:59 PM ET 07.17 | The Green Bay Packers will not retire Brett Favre's number in 2013. This isn't all too surprising seeing as just 10 days ago he said that the organization would likely retire his number prior to his induction into the Hall of Fame. That gives them till 2016 assuming he is a first ballot entrant. Realistically we could expect 2015, all the extra time in the world for the wounds in the Packers/Favre relationship to heal. But despite these comments just 10 days ago, someone asked Murphy if we could expect it this season.

When did Favre take up boxing?

Brett's channeling his inner Chael.

Thanks, I was wondering who the hell that was in the robe.

Brett looks a tad punchy here.

By 2015 we all will forget the silliness he has done. Texting, retire, unretired.......

Thanks for the welcome B57, this Site is pretty cool. I was a member at ESPN since 2009 in August, when I didn't go to games I was always on the Game Threads talking smack LOL but I don't care for Facebook so I am here, hopefully on Gamedays this is busy? I love the lady pics on this Site. @poo what is the spinny thing? I wish this had an edit button though just in case I type something and hit send and it has misspellings.

Favre was the INT King in big games and never won a SB MVP, I don't think he is a Top 5 QB of all-time, my list would be:
Montana 1
Unitas 2
Brady 3 - I cant stand the Pats but he is great and has had a great career
Peyton Manning 4
Elway 5

Game days on NCAAF and NFL both have some action. This site ain't what it once was, but looking forward to the influx from the ESPN "decision".
