Favre finally wins his second championship

AP

It’s a Saturday morning in December.  Which according to PFT bylaws means that it’s time to provide an update regarding a former NFL quarterback whose lingering relevance to the game comes in other ways.

It required a coin flip between an offer recently made by the Milan Seamen and the exploits of Oak Grove High School.

In the ensuing battle of five-letter quarterbacks, the older guy won.

According to the Hattiesburg American, Brett Favre won his second football championship via a retirement gig as offensive coordinator at the high school where he worked out during his various retirements.  The Oak Grove Warriors beat Tupelo, 14-7, for the school’s first Mississippi high school state championship.

“I can’t say it’s like a Super Bowl, but it’s pretty close,” Favre said, via the Associated Press. “It really is.  It’s a different type of feeling, but I couldn’t be more proud of these guys.  It’s been a lot of fun.”

The decisive points came not from Favre’s playbook, but from a fake field goal.

“That was all the special teams’ coach,” Favre said.  “I don’t call trick plays.”

Tune in next Saturday for the latest news on the former five-letter quarterback with the demeanor of Buddy the Elf.

  1. His QB was smart not to listen to Favre when he called a play late in the game to throw to the cornerback.

  2. I heard he’s considering retiring as the team’s OC. Well maybe, I don’t know he’s pretty undecided at this point.

  3. I’ll never forget that pick he threw to Tracy Porter, and the collective shrieks of agony from distraught Viking fans everywhere. It was a beautiful moment, immortalized by one of the all time great color commentaries, “But why do you even ponder passing, I mean you can take a knee and try a 56 yard field goal. This is not Detroit man! This is the Super Bowl!!!!!!”

    Thanks Bert.

  4. Congrats Favre. One year in Mn at age 39 was you best statistically ever, we can only imagine how many you would have had if you were in Mn your whole career, instead of playing for a bunch of self righteous cry babies. After bringing a team from no where to a Superbowl and many great years, you deserved better than that fan base! It’s also to bad the Saints had to stoop as low as they did to win, but everyone knows they will always be in Bonds, Rodriguez and Braun category !!

  5. Good for him. He doesn’t have to go out there and help those young men, but he is anyway. Nice job Brett.

  6. Jonny42671?
    Might I suggest “cry me a river” by Justin Timberlake? – Saints fan of a 2010 SB winning team punished by the effeminate commissioner now destroying the NFL.

  7. It truly is amazing how the Packer fans can hate this guy.

    He brought them back from 25 years of obscurity.

    They had gone 25 years without winning a playoff game.

    The futility of going 25 years of without scoring a TD in a playoff game at the end of a full regulation season.

    19 of those 25 years were non-winning seasons.

    Then TT trades him away.

    Favre’s replacement took over for a team that had gone 13 – 3 and made it to the NFC Championship game.

    What did he do with it?

    Took them to a 6 – 10 season – the biggest single season reversal in Packer history.

    Favre went on to post 2 more winning seasons and to the NFC Championship game again before his replacement could manage to even win a single playoff game.

    No wonder that Packer fans are recognized as being some of the worst in the NFL…

  8. I am ebarrassed that some of these posts are from actual Packer fans.

    Those of you who can’t get past Bretts last 3 years need to 1. get over it and 2 get a frickin’ life.

    Many applauds to Brett for volunteering his services to teach young men the game of football.

    Congrats to the team, which as Brett so clearly said, it was definately a TEAM win.

    Giving credit to The Special teams coach for calling the deciding play.

    Can’t wait for your Ring of honor celebration at Lambeau Brett, it is long overdue, but will happen when circumstances become right.

    Until then looking foward to The NFL Class of 2016, which you will definately be a part of.

    Congrats again Bret to you and the whole team.

  9. The Quarterback for the team he was coaching played with 2 separated shoulders and a bum ankle. Of course he’s to young to have a porn star mustache and tough enough to play through injuries. Unlike a certain Packer QB OUT WITH A SCRATCH ON HIS COLLARBONE!

    Since when? Not true of course. You must live in a mushroom cave, because in a poll of active NFL players Packer fans were voted the most knowledgeable. Everyone knows this. The only reason Viking fans feel they way they do, and then generalize about the Packers and their fans, like you, is because they are the shoot-them-in-back type of people. Two “Old West” expressions fit them well; All Hat No Cattle, and Backshooters.

  14. So if you have enough money you can pay people off that you sexually harassed, not become a registered sex offender and to top it off you get to work at a HS with a bunch of young girls.
    Sorry, thumb down me all you want, but I don’t think I’d want this guy working at my kids school.

  15. “jonny42671″….WELL PUT!! by the way, Favre has also said it was is single most fun season of his career……these cute little chubby packer fans have not gotten over this yet!!!….lol…and it’s quite comical listening to then suggest Rogers has replaced them as their new “god”….lol, lol,….
    BTW….I BET ROGERS WAS JEALOUS THAT HE DIDN’T RECEIVE THE TEXT FROM BRETT THAT JEN DID… he would have LOVED it…however, I imaging Ryan would have been upset.

  16. don’t take stellarperformance literally. It’s always a question of “who? or what? with this crazy boobs rebuttals.
    although, stellar did get creative once.
    tell everyone how you relate your awesome 3pt. basketball story & cheese bays decline into oblivion, stellar.
    Classic craziness.

    Jen wasnt a 17 year old girl, she was a grown woman. If Favre was working at your kids school, you would be the first in line for a autograph and you know it.

    Who’s Brent?????

    Its a feeble attempt from a Packer fan to insult the man. Should have said, “BrINT” a play on his first name and propensity to throw season crushing interceptions. But, per usual a hapless Packer fan cant even insult someone correctly. This type of behavior is to be expected in the land of home foreclosures.

    Yeah, it would make a lot more sense to give grown men feminine sounding nicknames like just about every Viking fan poster on this site does. That’s considered VERY clever.

  20. These are folks who have been inbreeding for a century and a half. Of course they hate the greatest quarterback in their team’s history. He spurned them.

    Also…. Everyone knows the downtrodden-New-Orleans-Saints-to-the SuperBowl narrative was orchestrated by the league front office and executed by the officials in that NFC Championship game against Favre and the Vikings. I hate the Vikings (Lions fan), but it was obvious.

  21. Like “Sharon” or “Erin”. I see, but its different when Packer find call the Vikings original gems like the “biqueens” or “lavender larrys”. How’s that double standard going?

    Monkey see…..monkey do.

  23. Poor, sad Pack fans. Still mad at Brett…..guys is helping out young men after his retirement and the fans that used to adore him, take the opportunity to continue to try and tear him down. Combine that with them selling their tickets for pennies on the dollar now…….talk about CLASS.

  24. Good for you ole silver fox! It wasn’t Favre that cost us the Saints game, he didn’t help with that last INT but he didn’t fumble 4 times and send out 12 players after a time out. Packer fans still bitter against Favre are not real packer fans. That dude was a beast to handle for 16 years for opposing defenses playing green bay. I appreciated how Favre played the game and can’t stand the arrogance and show-boating of Rodgers. Favre was a real packer, he deserves better from their fans, at least fans born after 1991 anyway. If you don’t like Favre, then you must think AJ Hawk is better than Ray Nitske.
