Brett Favre, who has retired and un-retired several times during his Hall of Fame career, insisted after the Vikings’ season-ending loss to the Detroit Lions that he really is finished for good, though he never explicitly announced his retirement.
“It’s been a wonderful ride for me,” Favre said. “One game, one season does not define me. There will be people (who) say, ‘It’s a shame he went out that way.’ (But) I am truly grateful for the opportunity. I hope people admire the way I played, my passion for it. I hold no regrets. It was special, a wonderful experience. I wouldn’t change it for anything.”
