I would reaaaly like Favre to be our QBs coach, or offensive coordinator.

spemmarDec. 3, 13 3:05 PM

I'll second that. You know he would succeed as an NFL Coach.

My goodness, he even has to waffle at coming back to coach the high school kids.

In hindsight, GB could have used him this year.

His dad was a high school football coach; I am sure some of his wisdom rubbed off on Brett. Favre would be a good coach at any level, but if I was him I'd stay with the high school kids, less stress (compared to NCAA and NFL) and he doesn't really need the money, does he?

What a great opportunity for those kids. How'd you like to have a first ballot hall of famer as your high school offensive coordinator?!?! WOW. Great thing he's doing, he sure doesn't need the money and like he says, he's got other things he could be doing...

Brett Favre was a great, maybe the greatest, NFL QB. He would be a terrible coach. Mostly because he can't articulate what it takes to be a QB because, you know, he has an 8th grade vocabulary. That's OK with the local MS morons. But most of all, he has absolutely no self awareness. When someone asked him what he was doing to make his back up, Aaron Rodgers a better QB he said, and I quote, "Nothing. That's not my job." Lucky for A Rodg that he had actual coaches. Never ever hire this guy for anything other than to be the single minded gunslinger he is.

Great players rarely make great coaches. See Jordan, Michael and Johnson, Magic. Favre wouldn't necessarily be a bad coach for having an 8th grade mentality as your average NFL player will never be accused of being too smart for their coach. Think about the example he set as a qb where he was completely anti fundamentals and totally reliant on gambling and arm strength. That is pretty much the opposite of a good coach, regardless what he "knows". Most good coaches were of average skill but elevated themselves by outsmarting or out maneuvering their opponents. Part of why you see weak hitting 2nd basemen and catchers as managers and mediocre backup qbs as offensive coordinators. See Bevell, Darrell.

Brett deserves a lot of credit for coaching H.S. football. He's giving back to the game and that's what counts.

Its not Favre's intellect that would interest me as an offensive coordinator - its his aggressiveness and the cajones to call plays. I gaurentee you he wouldn't have an index card for a playbook. Everyone including the kitchen sink would be involved with Favre calling in the plays.
