Where have we seen this before: Brett Favre says he will retire after the season. 

"I'm done, I'm done," Favre told Vikings reporters today during his regularly scheduled weekly news conference, per the Minneapolis Star-Tribune. 

Favre has retired twice before, only to unretire each time. But he sounds as definitive as he ever has, although you can never say never with the 41-year-old quarterback. 

"I remember the same question, the first part of the year, everyone said, 'Well, ... 'I said, 'Time will tell,' but like I said, I'm done. I'd love to, as I said when I came here, to win a Super Bowl, we had big expectations. It hasn't gone the way we hoped up to this point, but again, my career speaks for itself. I think it's been a great career. I don't know how the remaining games will unfold, but that's it."

More Favre: "I know when I look back and maybe it's next year, people will say, 'Will you watch games?' I'm sure I'll watch some. But for me, everything that I could possibly accomplish I've accomplished. Which is amazing. You set goals, we all set goals. There were some I didn't even set that I was fortunate enough to be on a team that won the Super Bowl. That was a long time ago, so there's nothing left to prove or from a goal standpoint to accomplish."
