Brett Favre Fears Concussions Gave Him Memory Loss

Brett Favre

I know the feeling Brett, I have days where I can’t remember much as well.

We aren’t clear on whether or not the Rams officially reached out to Brett Favre to save their season after Sam Bradford was lost for the year with an ACL injury.

What we do know is that Favre has no real interest in playing football for the Rams or anyone else.  On Thursday the 44 year old Favre explained more in depth, why he truly is finished playing football.

During an interview with Twin Cities, Favre admitted that “he deals with memory loss,” and he truly “believes concussions suffered from playing football have caused that memory loss.”

“I don’t remember my daughter playing soccer, playing youth soccer, one summer,” Favre told WSPZ. “I don’t remember that. I got a pretty good memory, and I have a tendency like we all do to say, ‘Where are my glasses?’ and they’re on your head. This was pretty shocking to me that I couldn’t remember my daughter playing youth soccer, just one summer, I think. I remember her playing basketball, I remember her playing volleyball, so I kind of think maybe she only played a game or two. I think she played eight. So that’s a little bit scary to me. For the first time in 44 years, that put a little fear in me. …

“I think after 20 years, God only knows the toll.”
