It appears that way :( It was a fun run though! I'm happy to see him go out on a good season because in reality it's so hard to win a super bowl in the NFL and I'm not sure they could have that run again next year. Rogers looked pretty good against Dallas. Too bad, I'm glad I got to see him twice.

It is sad to see him retire. on another note I hope and pray that no one will lower the flag to half mast. That is an honor to be held for something far better than a person retiring from football.

Brett was always a different individual. He played the game he wanted to. If you didn't agree with him, then fine; he didn't really care. And for that, I think that there may have been some reasons outside of the realm of football which possibly caused him to retire.

In his retirement speech he mentioned Ronnie Hebert. A person he met up with from the Make-A-Wish foundation. He was mentally handicapped, but Brett took a lot of value in the relationship they had. Quite possibly, seeing someone close like that, at this particular point in his career, pass away places a little more emphasis on your family. And as he mentioned many times, preparation for games in the current age of football takes a lot more time than it did in times past; especially as the quarterback. Preparing for all the defensive packages that are around now, intermingles with complex blitz and coverage packages... it can get stressful. Spending time on that takes away time he could be spending with his family.

Anyways, that was a long ramble.

He was for the majority of my life, the Green Bay Packers quarterback (I'm 25, and all I can remember before, was a brief stint with Randy Wright and Magic). The next season will definitely be an off one.
