Troy Aikman Jumps on the Brett Favre Bandwagon

Troy Aikman

Since joining Fox Sports as an NFL color commentator in 2001, former Dallas Cowboys’ quarterback Troy Aikman has made little attempt to hide his disdain of the Green Bay Packers and, in particular, the team’s former ageless quarterback, Brett Favre. Maybe it’s because Aikman hated doing so many Packers’ games or because his career was ended […]

MVP Push Begins For Favre

During Sunday’s blowout of the Seattle Seahawks fans started the MVP chant for Minnesota Vikings’ quarterback Brett Favre. Favre threw four touchdown passes and was 22-of-25 for 213 yards on Sunday. On the season, he’s thrown 21 touchdowns against three interceptions. He also leads the league in quarterback rating at 112.1. Predictably, Favre’s teammates and […]

Brett Favre: Demoralizing Our Troops

Favre signaling to terrorists

You know, you’d think this would be one of my assinine, satirical looks at the world of the Green Bay Packers and their sworn enemy, the Minnesota Vikings. Unfortunately, this is a completely true story. Detainees at an Iraqi prison camp staffed by members of the Wisconsin National Guard are using Brett Favre to demoralize […]

A report came out of the Twin Cities today that Brett Favre may be planning on sticking around for another year to torment the Green Bay Packers… I mean, to play quarterback for the Minnesota Vikings.

Favre Didn’t Want to Play for Packers

It was a seemingly simple comment made by Troy Aikman during the Green Bay Packers contest with Brett Favre and the Minnesota Vikings on Sunday, but it made me pause nonetheless. Aikman said Brett Favre didn’t want to play for the Packers, anymore. I didn’t really understand it at the time and Thom Brennaman just […]

Gilbert Brown Would Fart on Brett Favre

Gilbert Brown

That’s right. The Gravedigger, Gilbert Brown, the 340-pound former Green Bay Packers defensive tackle would fart on Brett Favre. Brown and ESPN First Take host Jay Crawford had this exchange during Friday’s show (ESPN is apparently running a series of former Packers talking about Favre’s return to Lambeau Field – William Hendrson was on the […]

How to be classy for Brett Favres return to Lambeau Field

In anticipation of Brett Favre’s return to Lambeau Field to face the Green Bay Packers for the first time as a member of the Minnesota Vikings, the word “class” has been hanging in the air like an I-was-drinking-Pabst-for-12-hours-straight-yesterday fart. Not only has it lingered, but even when the stench has dissipated, you can’t help but […]

Henderson Plans to Boo Brett Favre, Too

Former Green Bay Packers’ fullback William Henderson – or as we always liked to call him, HONDO! – told ESPN’s First Take that he too will boo Minnesota Vikings quarterback when he returns to Lambeau Field on Sunday. Here’s snip of what HONDO! had to say. The full video of the interview follows. “As much […]

Can’t Get Enough Brett Favre? Just Wait til Sunday

As much as ESPN’s cheapening of sport continually makes me want vomit, Fox has actually outdone them this time. ESPN: “We got record ratings for a cable program for Brett Favre vs. the Green Bay Packers on Monday Night Football.” Fox: “Oh yeah, well we’ll see your Favre and raise you a Favre! We’re gonna […]

Jim Schmitt’s Big Welcome for Brett Favre a Big Letdown

By now you’ve heard about Green Bay mayor Jim Schmitt’s plans to “welcome back” Minnesota Vikings quarterback Brett Favre in a “classy” fashion before the Vikings play the Green Bay Packers on Sunday.

Longwell Knows the Role of Packers Pariah Well

Ryan Longwell

If anyone knows what Minnesota Vikings quarterback Brett Favre is going through this week as he prepares to return to Lambeau Field for the first time since signing with the purple and gold, it’s teammate Ryan Longwell.

We Love You Brett Favre!

Actually, we only love this Brett Favre, now that he’s a member of the Minnesota Vikings. You know you’ve seen him before – many times. We’re not talking about the game-winning, gun-slinging, playing-for-the-love-of-the-game Brett Favre of Green Bay Packers lore. We’re talking about the interception-throwing, ball-dropping, can’t-quite-pull-it-out-at-the-end Brett Favre of the Minnesota Vikings. The Vikings […]

Favre Bowl II Stupidity Begins to Ramp Up

I’ve blogged before about the idiotic heights some Green Bay Packers’ fans are reaching in anticipation of Minnesota Vikings’ quarterback Brett Favre’s return to Lambeau Field on Nov. 1. In September, Chris Carriveau announced a “purification ceremony” at a “Black Sunday Event” Oct. 31, at which fans can toss their Favre Packers paraphernalia into a […]

Brett Favre – Open Mouth, Insert Foot

Remember who Brett Favre’s best team is? Nope, it isn’t the 1996 Super Bowl Champion Green Bay Packers that featured Reggie White, Keith Jackson, Antonio Freeman, Sean Jones, LeRoy Butler, etc., etc. It’s this year’s version of the Minnesota Vikings – at least that’s what he told us earlier this week. Not surprisingly, there were […]

Straight out of the Truth is Stranger Than Fiction Files comes this: a woman who was transporting a purple, spray-painted goat with Brett Favre’s number 4 shaved into it was found guilty on Tuesday. The goat was tied up in the trunk of her car. Guilty of stupidity. Actually, as part of plea deal, 21-year-old […]

It’s True – Deanna Favre Loves Us As Much As We Love Her

I’m not really one to throw a guy’s wife under the bus for his petty, ignorant, disgusting decisions, but let’s be honest with ourselves – Deanna Favre had just as much to do with Brett Favre leaving the Green Bay Packers and eventually winding up with the Minnesota Vikings as Brett Favre did. You know […]
