Favre thanks fans on Web site

MINNEAPOLIS -- Brett Favre is thanking his fans, though he's mum on whether he will return to the Minnesota Vikings next season.

In a message posted to his Web site on Thursday, Favre says that while the season didn't end with a trip to the Super Bowl, "I couldn't have enjoyed this season any more than I did."

Favre says he returned for his 19th season "with some trepidation" but "couldn't be happier about my decision."

The longtime Green Bay Packers quarterback came out of retirement to join archrival Minnesota.
