Posted by Mike Spofford on January 30, 2013 – 3:30 pm

Brett FavreFormer Packers QB Brett Favre will join NFL Network’s coverage team for NFL Gameday Morning prior to Super Bowl XLVII.

The NFL Network’s 8 1/2 hours of pregame coverage begins at 8 a.m. CT from the Superdome in New Orleans. According to an NFL Network release, Favre will go on the air to discuss his thoughts on the 2012 NFL season, the San Francisco-Baltimore matchup and his life away from the field.

Favre’s lone Super Bowl triumph came at the Superdome in New Orleans on Jan. 26, 1997, a 35-21 Packers victory over the New England Patriots.

    Favre did turn things around in GB. And his numbers say that he was a good QB. What the numbers don’t say is how many games were lost because of his bad decisions. He was a gunslinger. You gotta take the good with the bad there. Hence the reason I don’t like gunslinger type QB’s. The west coast offense does not need that type of QB! It is all about dinks and dunks, checkdowns and accuracy. Favre was not that accurate. And he took too many risks throwing into coverage. Holmgren was the only coach that had him on a leash. After Homlgren left, Favre was revered and did what he wanted. That is what spoiled his legacy – he ego went unchecked.

    Brett Favre the best Packer Ever?? Hardly. Right now that goes to Donald Driver who did NOT turn his back on his fans. Yes, Favre was part of pulling the Pack out of the hole, but they were on their way out when Majkowski got hurt and their BACK up Favre stepped in. He did not do this on his own, he had a lot of help! It has been NICE this season NOT hearing how wonderful he was for the Packers. There had been life after Favre. And it isn’t one riddled contraversey.

    Funny how fickle Green Bay Fans are isn’t it? Brett was the QB to bring back that franchise out of the pits and then took them to win the Superbowl and go to another one, plus just miss a third one! Geesh, what do some of you people expect, how soon they forget who got everything started! All you Favre haters just go suck an egg and jump in the Fox River!

    Will be glad to here what Brett has to say. He gave Packer Fans many great years of gunslinger play that ofttimes resulted in a win. It was always fun to watch, he always gave us a chance. Now we’re spoiled because Aaron gives us a best chance to win. We should choose to focus on Brett’s good points, not the bad. I hope to see him in the Packer Hall Of Fame someday. Remember all the Sunday’s he left it all on the field… I Say Thank You – Brett Farve.

    People need to realize how hard it is to give up something that has been their life. Especially hard for the super players. I never held anything against Brett Farve, it was just too difficult for him to let go. After years of these great players leaving Green Bay. I would like to thank you for all the hours you glorified our Sunday’s, the days of Regi White, Brett Farve, Donald Driver and all the other outstanding hero’s of our time. You will not be forgotten. The road is paved for new greatness because others will strive to be the best they can> Your contribution to sports has been amazing!

    BrINT Favre = ALL TIME BEST at PLAYOFF MELTDOWNS while being the most over-hyped athlete in sports history.
    ONE RING in his 20 years….thanks to Holmy and Reggie. But to his credit, he was awesome during the regular season against those 5-11 and 6-10 teams!And forget about it when he those 3-13 teams came around. BrINT would just kill THOSE teams. Didn’t matter if he threw tons of picks agains them either…he still took this team on his back and won the game baby! There was just no stoping this guy when it came to getting his fill of the league’s cupcakes!

    Kevin, with all due respect…in the playoffs we were slightly better than 50/50 win loss with him. And in the playoffs as well as the regular season, with Favre and his ‘gunslinging’ he always gave us a chance to LOSE….and we did too.

    NFL Network’s Super Bowl coverage starts at 8am Central on Sunday. After the 2:00pm hour starts, Favre will give very cryptic comments that he may retire from the commentary game before the next hour, only to come back on set at 2:59pm, thus avoiding the commercial break meetings to prepare for the next hour. He’ll mess up his lines, a lot, but his personality and 4th-quarter-hour comebacks will save keep his status as a legendary commentator intact. As the 3:00pm hour draws to a close, at 3:55pm, Favre will tearfully retire, saying he still has the ability to provide quality commentary, but has lost the motivation to do so. At 3:58pm, Favre will show up on set anyway, prompting the NFL Network to send him to CBS’ coverage team, where he promptly flashes nearby cheerleaders and hurts his shoulder in the process.

Would you have been more confident with Doug Peterson as the Leader of the Pack. That was the other choice. I’m just guessing that MANY of you did not live thru or cheer for the Packers for the 29 YEARS before. No matter what, He made the Pack fun to watch. So lighten up.

    As long as the Packers NEVER let him in to their Hall of Fame, it’s all good. He held this franchise hostage how many times? Then the Packers move on, and all of a sudden he wants to play? They trade him, and he takes every opportunity to trash the Packers. Telling teams how to beat them as well as hoping the Bears beat them as well! Hillbilly boy can go away and never come back as far as most actual Packer fans are concerned!

    While I fully expect our fan base to be forever (ok, “four-ever”) split on supporting Brett or not, mostly because of his time with Minnesota, I would personally love to see the fan base embrace his return as an alumni as soon as possible. As arguably one of the most influential and favorite Packers ever, he lead out team to many thrills and a World Championship (yes, I was there, too!). His life was an open book to the public for more than a decade, and while some of his alleged personal choices are appropriately disturbing, I am on record to say, “Come on home, Brett!”.
    Now, for those of you scorned by his time with the Vikings or off-field behaviors (true or not), I understand you’d rather not hear or see his name on our website or in Green Bay. I just happen to be on the other side of that issue, for my own reasons. You all have your own, and I respect that.
    For now, let’s rise above and show him why being a Packer is so special – because of us….the fans. See you in Canton, Brett!

    There was enough blame to go around on all sides. Mostly Farve, but management too. So he was the tail trying to wag the dog at one time. He did bring the Packers back into “America’s Team,” so lets all get together, sing Kumbaya and see if we can “use” him to our advantage again.

    How about it Coach Farve?

    I am a 50 year fan and I am sick of all the know-it-all hating going on. Many if not most of those “heros” and they are inspiring to me- are just humans and if I was getting that kind of money and worship, who knows if I could resist the drugs, alcohol, women and power that comes along. Don’t get so all high and mighty. Our team, Driver and others represent our best, athleticism, teamwork and a history. Even Vince sacrificed a lot of family time and health for the game. Read When Pride Mattered. Least we forget Brett and Aaron have been human punching bags when the need for protection has not been dealt with well. We don’t know the whole story- I am sure. I think Brett eventually got knocked out purposefully when almost about to go back to the big one and Arron has plenty to worry about too. Brett and the TEAMS got us to two Superbowls. and I have gotten to really like Aaron too. I hope he helps get us a another ring, he, the team and we loyal fans deserve it! I watch reruns of the 97 and others and Brett will remain one of the greatest ever, the sport is full of greatness.

    I’ve been a Packer fan since 1956, been to Lambeau games several times, and one share holders meeting. I kept my ticket stubs from the “Farve retirement game”.
    I wish the organization would place his name back on the all time roster, retire his number, and put him in the Packer HOF.
    Let his personal life be his own.
    This is about football, and what he brought to our team.

    How things have swung over the last two to three years. A few years back, I had to “discredit” Favre when two thirds of the comments were how Favre was the “greatest ever” and “saved the franchise” and now it’s “he was a clown”. The reality is Favre wasn’t near the greatest ever, but he wasn’t a clown either. Favre was ONE of the best ever. But that phrase can, and does, mean he fits in with the Jim Kelly’s and the Dan Fouts’s of the NFL.

    There have been over a thousand guys to be QB/TB’s (the guy to be snapped the ball) over the last 90 years. Those guys (Kelly, Fouts, Favre) are all in the top one and half to ever play. That’s recognition enough, as it means that’s in the range of being in the hall of fame.

    But for some reason (NFL super-marketing and dough headed Packer fan base?) Favre was vaulted from his Foutsian status to demi-god. A systematic over crediting for team success accrued to Favre, and when failure reared its head, Favre got nearly zero blame and the rest of the team was scapegoated. This inevitably led to Favre believing he was above the team and we all know the fallout from that.

    So glad that Brett Favre will be on the show. Can’t wait to see him. I consider him the greatest Packer ever. Playoff record is 13-11 and by the way the “great” Peyton Manning’s record in the playoffs is 9-11. Did it ever occur to any of you that several times he put this team on his back and took them to the playoffs when they really weren’t that good, so they got exposed by better teams in the playoffs. Geez – fair weather fans really make me tired. I believe most of them must be young and didn’t live through the 29 down years. Still love you Brett – good to have you around again. And by the way – thanks for giving back to the kids this past high school football season and for continuing to give to charities in WI. Seems like alot of WI natives forget about that.

    Just a mediocre QB come playoff time. After Mike Holmgren left, Favre couldn’t win on the road in the playoffs which is what truly great QBs are able to do. Or at least win more than one ring. Brett Favre has as many rings as a Brad Johnson or a Trent Dilfer who were good average mediocre QBs. Thing is, Brett had many more years than those two in the nfl with many more opportunities. Brett Favre had better teams around him for his whole career than those two, yet only one ring. Not all that great is it?

    Love him or hate him, fans can’t stop talking about Farve. He was a blast to watch on the field because of the adrenaline rush you got when you watched him play – good and bad! I can’t wait to listen to his commentary as who knows what may come out his mouth. He knows the game as well as anyone, but he has a tendency to entertain us as well. You can’t teach that. Love him! Good luck Farve!

    you Favre haters are probably the same people who screamed Favre’s a diva, an ego maniac – there’s no “I” in “team”. and yet you solely blame Favre for losses in the playoffs. ok – an INT may have closed the deal, but there’s 60 minutes of football. and you just said there’s no “i” in “team”, sooooooooooooo why is it you blame ONE man for all those loses? hypocrites.

    did you all blame Rodgers for losing the ball against AZ in a few years ago? or was that not his fault?
