Could This Be the End for Favre?

It was reported on this morning that Brett Favre will not be returning to the Vikings this season.  Favre is expected to issue a press release later this afternoon. He has also started to communicate this to teammates. Reports are that Favre’s ankle has not responded after surgery and rehab this off-season.

I believe Favre said the same thing last season during training camp and a few days later he was on a plane to the Vikings complex. Could this all be true? Could Brett Favre finally be retiring? Or is this just the official start to “Favre Watch 2010”?

If this is true, then the Vikings just took a major nose dive in the preseason rankings in my opinion. The other quarterbacks on the Vikings roster are Tarvaris Jackson and Sage Rosenfels.

Parcells Retires

Bill Parcells has retired Monday, according to a press release from the team.

 "I am retiring from coaching football. I want to thank Jerry Jones and Stephen Jones for their tremendous support over the last four years," Parcells said in a statement. "Also, the players, my coaching staff and others in the support group who have done so much to help. Dallas is a great city and the Cowboys are an integral part of it. I am hopeful that they are able to go forward from here."

 "I am in good health and feel lucky to have been able to coach in the NFL for an extended period of time," Parcells said. "I leave the game and the NFL with nothing but good feelings and gratitude to all the players, coaches and other people that have assisted me in that regard."

The Cowboys went 34-30 and 0-2 in the playoffs in Parcells’ four seasons in Dallas.
