Rosters Set For Brett Favre’s Legends Game
Brett Favre is going to play another football game.
Favre is set to play flag football in his Legends Game a day after he is inducted into the Packers Hall of Fame. Favre will go into the Packers Hall of Fame July 18.
Then July 19, Favre along with several other Packers legends and other NFL greats will play a flag football game at Camp Randall Stadium, in Madison, Wis.
On Favre's Legends team, Favre and Craig Nall will be the quarterbacks. Dorsey Levens, William Henderson and Darrell Thompson will be the running backs. James Lofton, Javon Walker and Charles Jordan will be the wide receivers. Mark Chmura is the only tight end. Bruce Wilkerson, Earl Dotson, Frank Winters and Mark Tauscher are the offensive lineman. Al Harris, Doug Evans, Eugene Robinson, Nick Collins, Pat Lee and Craig Newsome are the defensive backs. Bryce Paup and Nick Barnett are the linebackers. Gilbert Brown, Steve Warren, Shannon Clavelle and Mike Montgomery are the defensive lineman.
For the NFL All-Star team, Donovan McNabb and Sage Rosenfels are the quarterbacks. Roger Craig, Ron Dayne and Reuben Droughns are the running backs. Anthony Carter, Derrick Mason, Torry Holt and Willie Gault are the wide receivers. Byron Chamberlain and Steve Jordan are the tight ends. Bubba Paris, Mark Schlereth, Matt Birk and Will Shields are the offensive lineman. Bennie Blades, Jason Suttle, Robert Griffith, Carl Lee and Darrell Woolford are the defensive backs. Chad Brown is the only linebacker. Henry Thomas, John Randle, LaRoi Glover, Simeon Rice and Ed "Too Tall" Jones are the defensive lineman.
As a Packers fan, it will be fun watching Favre throw footballs as the ol' gunslinger again. There's some great names on the list on both sides. Favre and Freeman were my all-time favorite connection. Who can forget when Freeman made a bobbling catch on Monday Night Football against the Minnesota Vikings and then ran it in for a touchdown? Or when Favre threw four touchdown passes on MNF the day after his father passed away. Walker caught two of them that night.
Levens was also one of my favorite all-time halfbacks, too. And it will be fun to see Collins, Harris and Barnett all on the same defense again.
A few names that would have been cool to see play in the game are Ahman Green, Donald Driver and Bubba Franks.
Most importantly though, I can't wait to see Favre be back in Green Bay and get inducted into the Hall of Fame. I'm glad it's finally time the Packers are honoring No. 4. I'm sure I'll be like a kid in a candy store when I see Favre in green and gold again.
