Brett Favre and Aaron Rodgers: Reunited. Maybe the Mayans were on to something after all.
In a moment that stunned everyone, especially fans of the Green Bay Packers, Favre and Rodgers appeared on stage together to present the NFL’s Comeback Player of the Year Award to Peyton Manning during the NFL’s annual Honors award ceremony. Favre and Rodgers poked fun at Favre’s decision to retire and then comeback. It was likely a scripted moment, but it brought laughter to the crowd.
It also brought hope to fans who are sick of the arguing over the former quarterback.

With Rodgers apparently the one who gave the go ahead for this moment to happen, it has brought renewed hope that Favr...

No one expected these two guys to show up at the same place at the same time -- maybe ever -- but there they were, former Packers quarterback Brett Favre and the player who took his job five years ago, Aaron Rodgers.
Though the two never had a very warm relationship in their three seasons together with the Packers -- and certainly haven't had one since Favre retired, unretired...

Obviously it was 99.9% scripted. But of course the actual words don’t tell the story it’s the body language and everything else that creates the story.
Let’s get to it.

You may remember that Brett Favre and the Green Bay Packers didn’t end well. There was that whole Aaron Rodgers is the guy-taking-your-job / don’t-let-the-door-hit-you-in-the-ass-on the-way-out / what-do-you-mean-you-aren’t-retiring thing. Saturday, the two former teammates were on stage to present the NFL Comeback Player of the Year Award. They had banter before...
The writers for the NFL Awards show did a fantastic job on Saturday night.

If you’ve started watching Super Bowl 47 coverage early today, you probably have seen the attractive sports girls who are anchoring today’s coverage. Melissa Stark has been holding down the fort on the NFL Network [and most likely doing everything she can to avoid getting Brett Favre's phone number]. Suzy Kolber and Lindsay Czarniak have been outside the Superdome in...
Saturday night was the second annual NFL Honors Awards show where the biggest AP honors of the season are presented to their recipients.
Alec Baldwin was on hand to host the show, and as far as sports awards show monologues go, this one was top notch (though nothing will ever beat Norm Macdonald‘s at the 1998 ESPYs). Baldwin didn’t pull any punches, as he went after Peyton Manning...
