Brett Favre won his first game as offensive coordinator for Oak Grove High School of Hattiesburg, Mississippi last night, unleashing his troops for a 64-6 stomping of Sumrall, their unsuspecting opponents.

As you can tell from the photo above, Favre seems to be settling into his role as a coach quite nicely, tearing into an official after a blown call like he’s been doing it for years. And based on the lopsided score, it seems that his offensive game plan for the Warriors did the trick too. With the win, Favre continued his personal streak of debut victories, having won his first starts with the Packers, Jets and Vikings as a player.

ESPN’s Ed Werder visited with Favre and spoke with the ole’ gunslinger about the challenges of his new position. To his credit, Favre genuinely seems to not want to be a distraction to his players, and is trying to be “just one of the guys”. And of course, the 3-time NFL MVP is bringing his trademark child-like enthusiasm for the game, which must be a blast for these high school kids to be around.


If nothing else, we shouldn’t have to hear any more speculation as to whether or not Favre is coming back to play in the NFL (knock on wood). And that’s just a win for everyone.



Benson Expected To Start For Packers

According to the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel, Cedric Benson is expected to be the Packers' Week 1 starter at running back.Fantasy Spin:Benson is the healthiest halfback Green Bay has right now so it's not surprising that he has the inside track on the starting job at this point.

Brett Favre’s First Game as Offensive Coordinator is a 64-6 Win

Camp Comments: If you touch Adrian Peterson “you’re cut” from the team

This is probably the face that Minnesota Vikings RB Adrian Peterson was making when some dumb cop thought he could take him down by jumping on his back. While some of us are still trying to get over the fact that super star Minnesota Vikings RB Adrian Peterson is back in action already, Peterson is taking reps. But those reps are not as dangerous as they normally would be. Apparently...

Packers' Jennings returns to practice

Video: Vikings fans do the wave, collectively lose their minds

Those who inhabit the Metrodome in the fall, packing the stadium in support of their hometown Vikings, have always been known as a passionate and rowdy bunch. After Friday night, that seems like an understatement. During the Vikings' preseason game against the Bills, several beat writers -- using everyone's favorite medium, Twitter -- led us on a first-hand account...

More Interesting: Rabbit Running Behind Rachel Nichols Or Nichols Talking Packers’ Defense?

Do you ever really listen to Rachel Nichols now that she’s not tracking Brett Favre’s Ford F-350 through Mississippi? Did you know that Rachel Nichols is now 38-years-old? Both perplexing questions. Anyway, here’s a Nichols report from earlier in the week when she’s nearly attacked by a wild, rabies infected Green Bay rabbit, also known as “stew” to the locals. Shockingly...
