Telling the team his ankle has not responded to surgery/rehab as planned, not coming back for 2010.
I don't buy it. I think Brett is mad that no one is talking about him and whether or not he will retire, given that it's already August and no one seemed to care (mainly because everyone assumed he'd be back). All the talk is around Revis, Haynesworth, Brady, Okung, etc. Favre wants to be back in the spotlight saying he won't come back, and then he'll have a miracle change of heart before week one.
If he doesn't come back, give the Packers the division.
