Favre Not In "Proper Mindset"

GREEN BAY, Wis. -- Brett Favre left Lambeau Field just before Green Bay practiced Tuesday afternoon, and coach Mike McCarthy said at a news conference that the three-time MVP isn't in the "proper mindset" to be part of the Packers.

McCarthy, speaking to reporters about the standoff over Favre's retirement after practice, said he and Favre had "a ton of conversations" over the last couple of days about the quarterback's desire to come back and play in the NFL, but McCarthy was not convinced that Favre wants to be part of the Packers.

"The train has left the station, whatever analogy you want. He needs to jump on the train and let's go. Or, if we can't get past things that have happened, I have to keep the train moving," McCarthy said.

McCarthy said that when he asked Favre whether he was committed to playing for Green Bay, "that's not where he was."

McCarthy said he and Favre made plans to speak later Tuesday evening, but McCarthy didn't seem to allow for the possibility that anything significant would change. - ESPN
I wouldn't doubt if he gets traded very soon.
