no more fun ;_;

I'm realizing that the diff between Current Peyton & Hot College Peyton is the same difference between Vince Vaughn thru most of The Break-Up, and Vince Vaughn @ the end of The Break-Up.

David R., Monday, 14 May 2007 13:07 (thirteen years ago) link

I now realize that some readers might be put off by including Vince Vaughn in my discussion of hotness, and I apologize.

David R., Monday, 14 May 2007 14:30 (thirteen years ago) link

no, you're totally otm, Dave R! except for the part where I've never seen The Breakup, so I'm just substituting Vince Vaughn whenever Swingers came out and Vince Vaughn post-whenever Swingers came out. but it totally works! except Peyton didn't get puffy, really, and I doubt hard living's the culprit in Peyton's case, but still! I see what you're saying.

horseshoe, Thursday, 17 May 2007 07:03 (thirteen years ago) link

guys i kind of hope hard living is actually the story behind what happened to peyton manning, i would like that story VERY VERY much actually.

the schef (adam schefter ha ha), Friday, 25 May 2007 14:08 (thirteen years ago) link

Hard living = 95% of the US sports media up your ass like Lemmywinks about not being able to win the Big Game. Also, chasing Eli around.

three months pass...

peter king's top 15 list:

9. Green Bay (2-0): Play of the day: Brett Favre, 37, double-pumps under pressure to avoid a deflection, then lays a perfectly led three-yard out pattern into the hands of Donald Lee. Thing of beauty. That capped a 9-of-9 drive that made Favre look like he was 27, not 37.

I want Peter King to have as much fun as Brett Farve is having.

well this guy used to be a bartender in alabama (? is that where the big "everyone in sports goes here" physical rehab facility is?). one night brett favre shows up at their club. the bouncer, who is apparently a v short man, asks for his id, to which favre replies, "psht. you know who i am." the bouncer says something along the lines of, "i don't care who you are. i need your id." favre gets kind of stroppy about this, repeating that the guy obviously knows who he is, so on and so forth. favre, still refusing to show id for god knows what reason, proceeds to push past the short bouncer to get into the club. the bouncer then picks up favre, literally, and hurls him out of the club, telling him to come back when he has an id.

the end :D

"People say, 'What is the secret?'" Favre said of NFL's third-longest streak for consecutive starts. "Well, there is no secret. I think there are several factors, luck being a big part of that, maybe the biggest factor. If you play long enough, you figure at some point something is going to keep you out of the game: flu, sprained ankle, broken bone, whatever."

dr z says:

Green Bay Packers (2-0)
Mike McCarthy, the coach, said he wanted Brett Favre to show more consistency, which means a higher completion percentage, this year. Against the Giants he completed 76.3 percent (29-for-38) , aided largely by 14 straight at the start of the second half. He's normally not a high percentage thrower. The last time he topped Sunday's mark was in Game 6 against Minnesota in 2005 (28 for 36 for 77.8), 28 contests ago. See that, you tell the kid to do something and he does it. Who says he's not coachable?

Whoever was on FOX radio today specifically described Farves's game today as one where he was having a lot of fun.

jay mariotti:

``Football Night in America'' was a Dark Night in Chicago. Not only have the Cowboys replaced the Bears as conference favorites, the Packers are 3-0 and two games up in the NFC North. Grossman's inconsistency is more maddening when juxtaposed aganst the verve of Brett Favre, who is 37 going on 17 and back as the league's biggest feel-good story. Earlier, Favre whipped a game-winning pass that would have cut through a concrete barrier. It was a howitzer throw, leading wideout Greg Jennings perfectly on an inside slant and sprint for a 57-yard touchdown. You know what this means, I know what this means.

i knows what it means

17yo is kinda young. "He's playing like a high schooler" isn't really a compliment.

polyphonic, Monday, 24 September 2007 17:32 (twelve years ago) link

"he's playing like a pop warner player" wouldn't be really accurate tho.

god i hate brett favre. i'm going to have to watch him break the TD record this week.

M@tt He1ges0n, Tuesday, 25 September 2007 17:41 (twelve years ago) link

a guy my dad grew up with played for the packers and i guess the golden boy had a snootful and was acting on a sense of entitlement with someone else's date. things escalated and my dad stepped in to tell everyone to either shut the fuck up or take it to the parking lot when hornung clocked him.

one year passes...

PROVO — For 20 years, Brett Favre captured the attention of pro football with his gunslinging, fun-loving attitude.

It’s a special weekend for Favre — along with seven other men — as they are being enshrined into the Pro Football Hall of Fame as a part of the 2016 class.

BYU first-year offensive coordinator Ty Detmer had a front-row seat for the start of Favre’s legendary career. From 1992-95, Detmer and Favre — both young pro quarterbacks at the time — played together in Green Bay under head coach Mike Holmgren, a former BYU quarterbacks coach.

“He played with passion. Early on, he didn’t know football that well, but he made plays,” Detmer recalled of his former teammate.

Favre's instincts to play the game, and his drive to compete, led him to a Hall of Fame-caliber career capped by a Super Bowl XXXI victory and three straight NFL MVP honors from 1995-97, an unprecedented feat.

Favre went on to a prolific career that included setting the NFL career marks for completions (6,300), pass attempts (10,169) and wins (186, tied with Peyton Manning). He's one of only two players — Manning being the other — to throw for over 70,000 yards (71,838). Favre also threw 508 touchdown passes, second only to Manning.

Detmer, meanwhile, played 14 seasons in the NFL, starting 25 games and playing for six different teams. Another Green Bay quarterback from that era, Mark Brunell, went on to a 17-year career and was named to three Pro Bowls.

Favre was known for having fun no matter the situation, whether it was on the field, in the locker room or away from the spotlight of the game.

“He was kind of a fun-loving guy who just loved to play the game, especially early when I was there his first four years in Green Bay. It was kind of anything goes,” Detmer said.

That included hijinks with his teammates.

“We did some things the night before the game playing goal-line offense with our center Frank Winters as the fullback and three of us as defensive line sitting there at the bed waiting for him to dive over the top,” Detmer said. “Holmgren probably would have killed us had he known we were doing that. He wouldn’t have killed Favre because he wanted him healthy, but the rest of us would have got killed.”
