Now that the Green Bay Packers are winning again, conventional wisdom says Brett Favre is a lock to once again put off retirement and return to play next season.
Favre hasn't said that himself, preferring to delay his now-annual retirement saga until after the season.
But in a conference call with Detroit reporters today, Favre hinted that the Packers' successful season makes him more likely to return next year.
He says last season gave him hope, so he obviously has to feel better now about returning.
But he also says nothing is assured.
