It has been a long time since we have heard something from Brett Favre. The future Hall of Fame quarterback has been out of sight since 2010, but he will be back on Super Bowl Sunday.

Yes, you read that right. Favre will be working for the NFL Network on Sunday as they do gameday coverage for the game between the San Francisco 49ers and the Baltimore Ravens. This move may shock a lot of people, but I bet this move ends up being a hit. Favre may have some issues, but the man knows a lot about the game of football.
He has done some television work in the past, and the main criticism was that he was not able to dumb down his talk. That means he was unable to stop talking like a quarterback and casual fans were unable to understand what he was saying. I don’t think that will be a problem on the NFL Network. People that watch that channel love the game, and any insight that Favre can bring will be a welcome addition to the channel.
I am actually going to have to check this out now. I am curious to see what Favre can bring to the table and it might set him up for a long term gig with the channel. I know that I would tune in to watch Favre break down some quarterback play.
