Favre’s former teammate said he is one of the best five players ever To say the divorce between the Green Bay Packers organization and Brett Favre was nasty is probably an understatement. Favre left the Packers hanging seemingly every year because he couldn’t make up his mind on whether he wanted to return or retire. As we all know, this led to Favre being traded to the New York Jets and the fall out began soon after. Smash cut to Favre leading the Minnesota Vikings nearly to the Super Bowl two short years after and this heighten the animosity between the organization and its fans. From beloved to polarizing, Favre quickly became a villain in Packer nation in some people’s minds. After reconciling with the organization and current quarterback Aaron Rodgers, all seems forgotten. Now another former Packer has spoken up about Brett Favre and his place in not only Packers lure, but NFL history. Via Packers News: Speaking Tuesday night at the Marshview Conservation Club’s annual dinner banquet at the Rangeline Inn, former Packers center Frank Winters gave a resounding shout-out to the man who took his snaps for a decade in Green Bay. “In my opinion, he was probably one of the top five players to ever play the game. He was a special person, special individual, and hopefully they can get this thing worked out here in the upcoming months and get him back to Green Bay where he deserves to go into the Hall of Fame and to the NFL Hall of Fame,” Winters said to applause. To say Favre is one of the top five NFL players all-time could be debated for ever. But he undoubtedly is a Hall of Fame player and one of the best players to play for the Green Bay franchise. He not only deserves to have his number retired with the Packers, but also is arguably one of the top quarterbacks in NFL history. Favre holds many records and has a Super Bowl ring to go with the rest of his accolades. He certainly deserves to be mentioned among the greats regardless of his relationships and shortcomings.

Minnesota Vikings defensive end Jared Allen believes in the ‘three yards and a cloud of dust theory.’
Allen says having a running back like Adrian Peterson gives any team a chance to win a Super Bowl and that a sophisticated passing attack isn’t always needed.
According to Marc Sessler of NFL.com, Allen states that controlling the clock and being physical will wear teams...

Vikings defensive end Jared Allen told the “Dave Dameshek Football Program” that they can make it back to the playoffs by running the ball in 2013.
“I think for the simple fact that we have a guy like Adrian Peterson,” Allen said, via NFL.com. “You know, in this league, everybody wants to say it’s about the quarterbacks, it’s about the passing...

“A Game Of Inches”
Brett’s exploits have been well chronicled here and other places so lets get something out of the way right up front (something Brett never has to do when checking for testicular cancer), he is almost as well known for coming up short in the bedroom as he is for exceeding expectations on the Gridiron. But I am here to tell you today that Brett Favres small...
TAKE THE HIGH ROAD
Following the former Eagles QB's comments about why Matthew Stafford didn't deserve an extension, the Lions signal-caller finally addressed the criticism.
Greg Jennings was asked to take receiver Cordarrelle Patterson under his wing, but so far he has been impressed with a lot of what he has seen while also finding some coaching points for the raw rookie.
Matthew Stafford signed a contract extension with the Detroit Lions worth $76.5 million over the next five years, including $41.5 million guaranteed.
While Stafford is not the highest paid quarterback in the NFL it is a hefty commitment by the Lions in the former first overall pick.
Of course not everyone is impressed with the deal. Donovan McNabb questioned the deal on Tuesday while...
This will be my next job Juan…
Donovan McNabb was a solid pro that couldn’t quite get his team to the promised land. He second career as an analyst has become pretty much a joke. Of course he took his segment on NFL Network to rip Stafford and his new deal.
Here are the quotes:
“His footwork late in the games begins to drift a little bit, tries to throw the sidearm,...
I’m gonna go out on a limb and say that this guy’s last name is not Favre and his favorite number isn’t 4. Assuming that’s not the case then this is most certainly a custom Brett Favre Chicago Cubs jersey. My mind is blown. I feel like I just got the Nintendo Power that showed the map for Zelda.

You’ve already seen Sharrif Floyd and other big names in action. How about those battling for backup spots and roster spots on the defensive line at minicamp? Besides the inclusion of perhaps our favorite film of the offseason featuring Brian Robison’s celebratory dance, here is a look at some of the backups on the D-line.
Christian Ponder enters training camp as the starter and Matt Cassel as his backup, but what about the battle for No. 3? McLeod Bethel-Thompson will try to maintain his hold on that spot while rookie James Vandenberg learns the ropes. Inside is video of those last two from minicamp.
