On a day jam-packed with NFL action across the board, it was Brett Favre and Bart Starr who stole the show Thanksgiving Night.
By Robby Sabo
If we’re going to be brutally honest, let’s just come right out and say it. The NFL’s showcase of wall-to-wall football on Thanksgiving Day was poor.
First came the pathetic Philadelphia Eagles led by Chip Kelly. They decided to leave any lick of talent back in Philly as they allowed Matthew Stafford and the Detroit Lions roll right through them.
Then came Cam Newton and the undefeated Carolina Panthers. They destroyed the Cowboys in Dallas, ending any glimmer of hope at the playoffs they had – not to mention knocking Tony Romo out of the game, and the rest of the season with his second broken clavicle.
Just as onlookers were booing the play of the Green Bay Packers and Chicago Bears during the nightcap, halftime came in which Brett Favre and Bart Starr stole the show.
Of course, this was the night Favre would have his No. 4 retired at Lambeau Field. Not only was his jersey unveiled to the roar of the crowd, but the first Packers legendary quarterback came to join in on the festivities (video above).
It was truly a classic football moment.
