Tom Brady is almost as famous for his insane film session marathons as he is for his avocado ice cream and kale pajamas. Brett Favre, not so much.
A video is making the rounds from a 2016 speech Favre gave in New Orleans where he told the story about how he didn’t know what a Nickel Defense was until several years into his tenure as starter and rifle-armed franchise savior.
Favre said he would just nod along in film sessions with Mike Holmgren, and eventually went to backup Ty Detmer in secret to get scoop. After learning that Nickel just meant the D was taking out a linebacker and adding a DB, an unimpressed Favre responded, “That’s It? Who gives a s–t?”
The story great. Favre’s delivery is better. Brady might throw up if he hears this blasphemy.
