  • Brett Favre’s Catholic faith carries him to the Hall of Fame

    This weekend Brett Favre, one of the greatest NFL players of all time, will be inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in Canton, Ohio. On Thursday he was presented with the prestigious “gold jacket,” the highest honor a player can get in the NFL. What is unique about the event is that his wife Deanna presented him with the jacket and will formally introduce him at Saturday’s induction ceremony. She is only the second wife of a football player to do so. Favre said about the decision to have his wife participate, “Deanna is the best teammate I’ve...

    In a truly surreal display, NFL great Brett Favre is being denounced by the left’s new cultural commissars for not clapping long and hard enough at ESPN’s ESPY awards, as Bruce/“Caitlyn” Jenner received a “Courage” award for his efforts to become a woman. Oddly, Favre did applaud – not doing so would have been a grave heresy to America’s new church of progressive inquisitors. His sin was not applauding enthusiastically enough. The New York Post placed a video of Favre’s blasphemous insufficient clapping, juxtaposed with Jenner’s celebratory ascent to the stage. The video repeatedly replays Favre’s cruel, disgraceful, calloused political-ideological-cultural...

    Brett Favre, wearing his old Green Bay Packers No. 4 jersey, is featured on the cover of Sports Illustrated this week as part of the magazine's "Where are They Now" issue. Favre voices many of the same thoughts he did back in October when Journal Sentinel reporter Tyler Dunne visited him at his home in Mississippi, talking about his life today, the physical toll the game took on him, his reconciliation with the Packers after the messy departure in 2008, and more. He also thinks he could still play in the NFL – sort of. "I think I could play,"...

    JACKSON, Mississippi — NFL legend Brett Favre has endorsed the re-election of Sen. Thad Cochran (R-MS), cutting a television ad for the six-term incumbent days ahead of a runoff election against Tea Party-backed state senator Chris McDaniel. “I’ve learned through football that strong leadership makes the difference between winning and losing. And when it comes to our state’s future, trust me: Mississippi can win — and win big with Thad Cochran as our strong voice in Washington,” Favre says in the ad. “Thad Cochran always delivers, just like he did during Katrina.” But a drunk-driving accident involving Favre's brother and...

And when it comes to our state’s future, trust me: Mississippi can win and win big with Thad Cochran,” Favre said. “Thad Cochran always delivers, just like he did during Katrina."

    The St. Louis Rams, desperate for a quarterback like seemingly half the NFL is these days, called Brett Favre this week, according to ESPN. The franchise wanted to see if Favre would unretire for the umpteenth time and give it one last final shot, after all the other one last final shots. Seriously. They called Brett Favre. Favre is 44 years old and currently working as a volunteer offensive coordinator and quarterback coach for the Oak Grove Warriors, a high school team in Mississippi. He spends his spare time jogging and mowing the lawn. He hasn’t played since 2010, when...

    One rather important member of the Eagles has weighed on the rumor that the team is interested in Brett Favre joining the team as a backup quarterback. “I would be honored to have Brett Farve as a backup. That will be amazing Learning how to toy with defenses the way he did his whole career,” Michael Vick wrote on Twitter. First things first: There is no indication Favre would be interested in joining the Eagles as a backup. Howard Eskin of WIP radio reported the Eagles have “some” interest in signing Favre, but no one is saying the interest is...

    Quarterback Brett Favre may return to the NFL for the 2011 season, according to Charley Walters of the St. Paul Pioneer Press, but not with the Minnesota Vikings. The Vikings seem intent on choosing a quarterback in this year’s draft and possibly adding a veteran like the Washington Redskins Donovan McNabb as a bridge until he’s ready. If it happens, it wouldn’t come as a surprise. We’ve all seen this movie before. There are, however, a couple interesting angles here. Favre was quick to file his retirement papers with the league after the 2010 season, something he didn’t do the...

    NEW YORK (CBS) Former New York Jets sideline reporter Jenn Sterger, who accused veteran NFL quarterback Brett Favre of sending her sexually explicit messages, secretly met with the NFL commissioner less than two weeks before Favre was hit with a $50,000 for not cooperating with the league's investigation, according to a report. In a case which she described as "David vs. Goliath," Sterger told Commissioner Roger Goodell that he was "delusional" if he believed the accusations against Favre were "isolated," her lawyer Joesph Conway told The New York Post. In October, Gawker sports blog DeadSpin released voice mails and sent...

    The NFL announced today that Minnesota Vikings quarterback Brett Favre will be fined $50,000 for the Jenn Sterger episode. NFL spokesman Greg Aiello confirmed the announcement on his Twitter account, writing that the NFL found “no violation of league policy,” during its investigation into accusations that Favre sent lewd photographs to Sterger in 2008. Aiello added that Favre’s fine stemmed from a “lack of cooperation” into the investigation. (Snip) Favre, 41, acknowledged earlier this year that he left Sterger voicemails while trying to woo the stunning ex-model in 2008.

    Snowy weather doesn't come as much of a surprise in Minnesota, but in an unforseen move, the Vikings announced that Brett Favre will start against the Chicago Bears. Earlier in the day, the Vikings had upgraded Favre to questionable, leading to questions about his availability. Favre didn't practice all week because of a sprained throwing shoulder. The injury kept Favre out of last week's loss to the New York Giants and ended his NFL-record 297 straight regular-season starts. According to multiple media outlets, All-Pro running back Adrian Peterson is inactive for the game. A snow emergency has been declared in...
