Brett Favre Hall of Fame induction tribute to his father, "spectacular" Oakland Raiders fans

In his Hall of Fame induction ceremony, Brett Favre told a moving story in tribute to this father. And in so doing, thanked Oakland and Raiders fans. Perhaps no part of the 2016 Hall of Fame induction ceremony was more powerful and moving than Brett Favre’s 36-minute speech. He led out that speech saying that it was an honor to be in the same class as Ken Stabler because it was Stabler who he watched that made him want to play football. He later mentioned several of the players who came before him at Southern Mississippi, singling out Ray Guy who was enshrined in 2014. But perhaps the...

Brett Favre’s Role in Jets History

Today quarterback Brett Favre will be inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame. It is worth noting the substantial role he has played in Jets history over the last three decades both directly and indirectly. The story began when Favre was a draft prospect in 1991. At this point, the Jets loved him, particularly personnel director Ron Wolf. Rich Cimini wrote a great article a year ago describing Wolf’s obsession with Favre, and the unhappy ending for the Jets. In fact, they made Favre the No. 1 player on their draft board -- much higher than most teams rated him. ........ The Jets,...
