Silliness

– Brett Favre didn’t know what “nickel” meant when he was the starter for the Green Bay Packers:

“Now if you don’t know what’s going on, the trick is to act like you do. I’m the starting quarterback and [Mike] Holmgren would be up there and . . . he’s writing “nickel defense is in.” . . . I’m sitting there and thinking ‘I hear this nickel defense all the time and I’m not sure what it is.’”

“Then I’m thrown for a loop when he says ‘Long yardage situation, dime comes in.’ And I’m thinking ‘what the hell is dime?’ . . . but I was afraid to ask, because I’m the starter. So after about our second year, finally I said ‘Ty, I have to ask you a question.’ I said, ‘Ty, what’s a nickel defense?’ He gets real quiet and says, ‘Are you serious?’ I said, ‘Yeah, I’m serious.’ He says, ‘Well, basically they take out a linebacker and bring in a DB.’ I said, ‘That’s it?’ He said, ‘That’s it.’ I said ‘Who gives a sh–?’”

– RB LeVeon Bell made his “retirement” as an April Fools gag and it worked.

Preach!
