From Chris Mortensen on ESPN.com:

Packers quarterback Brett Favre recently has said he will play next season, but there was a smattering of speculation inside Green Bay's locker room following Saturday's wild-card playoff loss to the Falcons that he is contemplating retirement.

A Packers spokesman said Favre will be available to the media on Monday.

Though Favre is expected to continue playing, several Green Bay players, coaches and front-office personnel have noted he's been fairly lethargic for much of the season's second half.

Regardless of Favre's status, the Packers have all but decided to use their first-round draft pick on a quarterback.

One quarterback on their radar screen is Florida's Rex Grossman, who confirmed Saturday that he is skipping his senior season and headed for the NFL draft.

Former Packers GM Ron Wolf, a consultant to the team, told me this week that Grossman reminds him of Favre more than any college quarterback he's seen in the past 10 years.

The Packers are picking in the bottom of the first round, but it is a quarterback-rich draft, so the idea of Grossman being available isn't far-fetched.

I doubt he'd retire. While (from all reports I've heard) he doesn't give a lick about stats and such, I find it hard to believe that someone with as much competitive drive as he has would retire after this performance.

QB in the first round? PUH-LEEZE! We need defensive help, not a QB (even if Favre were to retire).

Favre has his year-end news conference scheduled for 9:30 CST Monday. I'll post details as it happens (just in case).

There is no way on earth that Favre would retire after that game against Atlanta. He wants to go out a winner. It wouldn't be a bad idea for Green Bay to draft someone for the future, though....JUST NOT GROSSMAN.

It just started.

He's coming back. As he's said in the past, he'll continue to play as long as he thinks he's still playing well, and he's still wanted. He thinks he's played as well in the last two years as he ever has, so no quitting now. Brittany (his daughter) wants him to play two or three more years at least, and he doesn't see that as a problem.

"What did you think about the booing? I guess I woulda booed too if I was sitting there." He then ran through the littany of things that the team didn't do well, and said that the fans and the players should expect better.

He's not worried about injuries. Even after the knee injury, he feels he would have played the following week if there wasn't a bye.

I made the (drunken) bold statement at the bar on Saturday night that the Green Bay Packers are the Atlanta Braves of the NFL. I have no basis for my argument, but it sounded really insightful after a bunch of beers. I think my main point was lack of championships vs. amount of talent over the last 10 years.
