Favre thought, “I’m done”; now thinks he could play to age 50

“I can remember walking off that podium with Deanna and my family thinking, ‘I’m done,'” Favre said. “I mean, my heart . . . it was broken.”

But after an offseason of rest and relaxation, followed by ankle surgery and rehabilitation, Favre now says he doesn’t see any reason he should quit any time soon.

“Hell, you gotta quit sometime,” Favre said. “Then again, maybe I will be doing this when I’m 50 years old, who knows?”
