Brett Favre Talking About Not Knowing What A Nickel Defense Was Until His 2nd Season Is Hilarious

Brett Favre is perhaps the greatest gunslinger there ever was. The former Packers QB’s mentality of tossing aside all regard for defensive coverage and schematics in effort to chuck the ball downfield to gain yardage is reflected in his position of being second all-time in touchdown passes, while being first in interceptions ever thrown, by a mile.

Favre’s story of how he didn’t know what a nickel defense was until his second season in the league until he mustered up the confidence to ask is a classic.
