Brett Favre takes jet to Green Bay, hangs out, flies back
2014-12-10

In his first public appearance in Green Bay since he retired from the NFL in 2010, Favre appeared at his eponymous steakhouse in town which was packed to the gills, per reports for a fundraiser for Rawhide Boys Ranch, a local home for troubled youth founded by former Packers quarterback Bart Starr, who is battling ill health.

Favre kicked off the 30-minute chat alongside Steve Young with five big words.

"It's exciting to be back," Favre said.

Favre's appearance was a surprise. Earlier in the day, media reports swirled that Favre was on his way to Green Bay but that he did not plan to attend the Monday night game against the Atlanta Falcons. He was believed to have left soon after the presentation with Young to return back to his home in Mississippi.

Favre did not speak with the media afterward, and the next time he might be seen in Green Bay could be next season when he's expected to be inducted into the Packers Hall of Fame, along with a ceremony that has been years in the making with a few bumps on the road.

It appears that Favre and the franchise are on the best terms now that they have been since his left the Packers in 2008.
"Obviously the history with my departure from Green Bay and all those things has made wonderful news, good or bad," Favre said, "but I think we're well beyond that."

The fans certainly were. His steakhouse was packed, and fans heard Favre and Young trade stories about their battles together, former Packers and 49ers coach Steve Mariucci and other tales of yore. The audience ate it all up.

Just as the fans will eat up Favre's return for his July induction into the Packers' Hall, along with a ceremony at a regular-season game in 2015 to retire his jersey. Expect the good times to be there once again, like they were ever so briefly on Monday.




Who has the “Stones” to Gather Moss?
2010-11-02

After his postgame tirade Sunday in which he blasted Vikings’ coaches & praised the Patriots, Randy Moss finds himself on waivers and on the verge of being on his third different team (maybe) this regular season. Oddsmakers at Sportsbook.com have put up a Prop on “Where Randy Moss will Next Play Football.”

“One team that makes a lot of sense for Moss to end up is St. Louis” says Sportsbook.com Spokesman Dave Staley. “The Rams are decimated with injuries at wide receiver (Mark Clayton & Donnie Avery both on IR). Also, this team has a legitimate chance to win the NFC West, and adding a player such as Moss could just be enough to get them into the postseason. That’s the Rams’ have been installed as one of the favorites to acquire Moss, with odds of 3/1”

While Moss did have incredible numbers (among these 50 Touchdown Catches) in his 3+ years in New England, his 2010 stats have been very subpar. In seven games this season, Moss only has 22 receptions, 5 TDs, & 313 receiving yards (which comes out to less than 40 yards/game).

With the worst record in the league, the Buffalo Bills (0-7) would get first opportunity to sign the controversial Moss.

Staley added “We have San Diego as the current +250 favorite to obtain Randy Moss, as they are another team that has numerous injuries at wideout. Plus, if they sign Moss, it will help ease some of the pain of the Vincent Jackson holdout debacle. “ Staley concluded that “Buffalo or Dallas are longshots to land Randy Moss, as they have virtually no chance to make the playoffs, so why waste money?”
