Brett Favre said “in all honesty” he didn’t miss playing football this past season.  Favre, the former quarterback of the Packers, Jets and Vikings, joined 1340 The Fan in Lubbock and talked about finally staying retired n 2011.  “It went a lot smoother than the previous three or four years,” said Favre. “At the end of last season, I’d said in years past that I knew. I really knew this time. I got beat up a little bit physically, but I still felt like I could still do it, but I just felt like it was time. … In my situation, unlike some players who retire because they have no choice, either teams don’t want them or injuries have caused them to retire and they just can’t do it, for me, I really had never thought I would give out mentally before I gave out physically, but I think that was the case.  “Mentally, I was just burned out. This season, being removed and having a bird’s eye view but not being involved was eye-opening because I didn’t miss it a bit.”
