    Let's all think of ways the curse can effect Brett in retirement [face_devil]

    Can't wait for the new Create-A-Favre feature! :p


    But seriously, I want to know what Frank Caliendo has to say about this...

    The curse has to play out in one of two ways:

    Either the curse gets transferred to Aaron Rogers, who goes down with a serious injury early in the first game of the season

    or

    The curse gets executed in their opener during Favre's jersey retirement. He trips and falls and hurts himself, or something happens to the jersey, or something.

    Great tribute to Brett, but I'll still be playing NFL 2K5 and Tecmo Super Bowl.

    As for curses, none. I think his father dying, home destroyed by Katrina, and his wife getting breast cancer was too much already.

    His curse would be to try and make a comeback and be either awful or get hurt. But neither one's going to happen, so I guess the jinx's string of misfortune is over with.

    To make up for it, they should put both Brady and Peyton on the cover next year. :p

    Damn, I was hoping it was going to be Eli Manning, insuring the return of "Bad Eli".

    Either the curse gets transferred to Aaron Rogers, who goes down with a serious injury early in the first game of the season

    ...and Favre comes back to replace him and thus suffers the effects of the curse?

    I'll pass on that bet, though :p

    I thought the curse was broken last year with Young on the cover since before Young no team with a Player on the cover had ever made it into the playoffs the year the player was featured?

    And not for nothing but the Titans did win a Playoff game last year.

    It's more of a personal jinx, and it still applied: Young wasn't very good last year and got Norm Chow fired.

    Regardless of whether you like Favre or not, thats uncalled for.

    Thats not what the curse is about, anyways.

    About damn time! Hearing that he was retiring all most turned me off football and I am glad to see he gets one final fun tribute. With all the football fans who love this game, this is really going out in style.

    As for curses, walk away says the Cubs fan... [face_whistling] :p

    Well the hot rumor is that Favre wants to come back, but the Packers don't want him. Favre has asked to be released so he could go somewhere else. What does this do to the cover? [face_laugh]

    I couldn't be any more sick of Brett Favre, but where the heck does ESPN get off calling his emotion at his press conference "crocodile tears" in that breaking news box?

    What does this do to the cover?

    IF
    this happens, it becomes one of the most hilarious covers of all time. That said, I don't expect him to come back.
