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.

The NFL Network’s Top 100 players series has only 30 players left to reveal. Thus far in the first 70 (100 through 31), four Packers have made the list.
Here’s the recap:
No. 92, FB John Kuhn
No. 80, WR Jordy Nelson
No. 56, WR Greg Jennings
No. 36, CB Charles Woodson
Based on those results, it would stand to reason two Packers will be revealed somewhere in the top 30: LB Clay Matthews and QB Aaron Rodgers.
It may be tough to predict where Matthews will land. He has been voted to the Pro Bowl each of his first three seasons, but last year’s six sacks were a career low. Yet, he’s the defensive player that opposing offenses game plan around, and this list is voted on by the players themselves.
Coming off his MVP season, Rodgers very well could end up No. 1. He set a league record for single-season passer rating at 122.5 last year, and he threw 45 TD passes in just 15 games. He’s at the top of his game, and if he’s not No. 1, he’s going to be pretty darn close.
Are there any other Packers you think should have shown up in the Top 100 so far? How about predictions for where Matthews and Rodgers are ranked? Tell us what you think.
