FAVREwatch: Is Brett Favre’s decision to sit out the Pro Bowl a good sign?

Pro Bowl QB Brett Favre will not play in the 2008 Pro Bowl, due to a risk of aggravating an ankle injury that has nagged at Favre since last season (you might recall Favre undergoing surgery on his ankle in the 2007 offseason).  I might be looking too much into this, but this seems to me to be a sign that Favre is not leaning toward retirement.  If Favre wanted to retire, why wouldn’t he take a vacation to Hawaii and play in the Pro Bowl?  If #4 is staying out of this game because he doesn’t want to cause an injury that would inhibit his ability to play in the future, this leads me to believe that he does in fact plan to play in the future.

I might be overanalyzing this, however, as Favre has sat out of all of his recent Pro Bowl games.  Still, let’s hope Favre will come back for at least one more year.

 Note:  Jeff Garcia will replace Favre.

  1. Good conclusion; hadn’t thought of it like that. I agree, this would point to his desire to get healthy so he can return.
