"If I felt like coming back -- and Deanna and I talked about this -- the only way for me to be successful would be to win a Super Bowl. To go to the Super Bowl and lose, would almost be worse than anything else. Anything less than a Super Bowl win would be unsuccessful, and honestly the odds of that, they're tough. Those are big shoes for me to fill, and I guess it was a challenge I wasn't up for. "
Thank you for everything you gave us, Brett. All the love and good wishes of Packerland to you and Deanna in whatever you do next. Chances are, we'll never see one like you again.
