Sorry, Pack fans. Here are some pics of Petra Nemcova (first page NSFW-ish) to ease the pain.

Question: Does this mean a state full of people who refuse to quit playing Madden 2008?

From conference finalists to entrusting our offense to a QB with one good half under his belt. I would have felt a little better if we had grabbed Derek Anderson.

If you want you can have Rex Grossman for a 7th round pick in 2015.

I wonder how much the story just below this one (Pats sign Moss) had to do with this decision. Reports were Favre called Moss and promised to stick around multiple seasons if Moss came to Green Bay, but the Pack never pursued him.

Ladies and gentlemen, the following public service message is brought to you by your friends from D-Generation X, who would like to remind each and every one of you that if you're not down with that, we've got two words for you...

While I imagine that an entire city just called in sick and is collectively crying in its beers right now, there's always the flip-side to this, and that's this...

That Hall of Fame ceremony in five years? It's going to be epic.

While the switch from Cena to RVD should alleviate some complaints, the inevitability of the belt's return to Cena (note where Summerslam is this year) and the poor initial showing by the new ECW are enough to keep the indicator where it is for now. The pieces are in place, though, especially on RAW, for improvements to be made to the IWC's psyche in the near future.

Surprised (and a little sad) Brett didn't give it one more year. Kudos to him for announcing it now though rather than dragging it out all summer.

Your plan would be flawless had GB not, y'know, seen Rex play ;)

I was hearing throughout Sportscenter yesterday that Favre was demanding the Pack get him some help on offense or else he wasn't coming back.

Wait...help on offense? Didn't the Packers have the highest-scoring offense in the NFC? And I don't recall the guys around him costing them that game against the Giants. That was all Favre throwing a ball up for grabs in OT. If I were any of his teammates and I heard him essentially say "The team I had isn't good enough", I'd be insulted. They went 11-2 and went all the way to the NFC title game! And they're the youngest team in the league! Why wouldn't they feel a big slighted?

Before the season ended, Favre said he'd be back for sure in '08. He said he was having fun. He didn't want to leave. But because the Packers couldn't pull the trigger on Randy Moss (who they didn't need), he's picking up his ball and going home? That's why he's retiring? Not because of "mental burnout", but because of THAT? Why on Earth should the Packers fans miss him?

Retire his jersey. Give him the retirement ceremony he deserves. But don't be sad he's leaving, because his reasoning for suddenly going into retirement sucks.

Too bad, though in a way I'm happy he went out on a good year, with the packers back as a conference contender and that he didn't leaving the team twisting in the wind like previous years to decide if he wanted to come back. They have a young yet solid team if you ask me, so as long as Aaron Rodgers proves to be a decent QB, they'll be fine.

I just hope Green Bay fans weren't listening to Max Kellerman here on 1050 ESPN radio this morning, cause they would had rioted all over the place. He and Brian Kenny were ripping on Farve as overrated, a "third- tier" QB who was worse than Marino and even Fran Tarkenton. I wouldn't call him the greatest of all time, but he is definitely in the top 10 and the way they sounded, he didn't even belong in the top 20 to them. I don't know what they were smoking when they thought up that brillant idea.

In other words, a typical Tuesday night on the Madden Cruiser.

I'm with Z. Also, according to the Green Bay Press-Gazette, even Favre said that wasn't the reason. Did it play into it? A billion things played into it, I'm sure. I think Ted Thompson put it best in the press conference--it was a complicated decision.

You don't give up a 17 year career simply because one player isn't signed. No way.

I will mourn with the rest of my fellow Cheeseheads...and anxiously await the Hall of Fame ceremony of...2013?

Yup. Monday thru Friday, 10 AM to 1 PM. I know people find him really arrogrant, but he's still a million times more tolerable than Colin Cowherd.

I don't know what may have led to Brett retiring. Green Bay will still be strong next year, and what I've seen of Aaron Rodgers is that he's *gasp* good.

I still can't help but feel that Favre will be playing next season, somehow.
