I got a pretty good memory, and I have a tendency, like we all do, to say, 'Where are my glasses?' and they're on your head.

Brett Favre has a pretty good idea of what Peyton Manning went through Sunday night. That was likely the thinking when the NFL Network brought the former Packers star quarterback on for an interview Sunday morning in anticipation of Manning's return to Indianapolis as a member of the Denver Broncos that night. In 2009 Favre came to Green Bay as a member of the hated Minnesota Vikings after 16 years, two Super Bowl appearances and one Lombardi Trophy with the Packers. He discussed the "awkward" drive to Lambeau Field that day, past several old hangouts and even his old house just half a mile from the stadium.

It was a reference to the 1990 movie "Flatliners," and a reminder to the quarterback to maintain an even keel through the craziest times.

John Elway has a message for Brett Favre: Just do it. "If he decides not to play now and doesn't come back, I think he'll question that for the rest of his life," the retired Denver Broncos star said. Joe Montana has a message for Favre too: Just do something. "If he's ready to play, then yeah, he should," Montana said. "But usually when you're waffling like that it makes it difficult on everybody. . . . If it was the first time he's done it, it would be different.
