Brett Favre's Answering Machine

Tim SeemanAnalyst IFebruary 15, 2008

"Hey Brett, it's just me, Aaron...your backup for the past three years.  Listen, I just wanted to let you know that I'm ready.  I mean, I'm not sure if you really know who I am, but you've taught me a lot.  You're a great player and all, but my family has been waiting for a long time to watch me start.  I'm not telling you to retire or anything.  I just wanted to make sure that you know the Packers will be in good hands when you're gone.  You can call me back later if you want to talk more about this.  Bye."

"Brett, Mike here.  Ted called and he wants to know what you think about the draft.  I also would like to hear what you want to do offensively next season if you're coming back.  Call me back.  Bye."

"Hey, it's Jim McMahon.  Doug Pederson and me were just hanging out and checking out our Super Bowl rings, and thought that it'd be nice to call and say thanks.  Thanks a lot!"

"I don't know how to say this Brett...I've been struggling with it for a long time.  I mean, when you see a great player in the NFL, it's tough not to see him as a great player.  You're a great player Brett.  I love when you roll to the right, or when you bootleg out the left.  You go through your progressions and BOOM! Touchdown pass!  I mean, it's great to watch.  You're probably the guy who has the most fun playing the game that I've ever seen.  What I'm trying to say, Brett, is that...I'm in love with you.  It might not be a surprise to you or anyone else, but I just felt like I had to come clean.  I'll be watching you.  Bye."

"Hey.  Peyton Manning.  I saw your work with Wrangler, and I was really impressed with the way those jeans fit on you.  Call me back if you're interested in working with me on a commercial.  I think it'd be great."
