When Brett Favre steps onto Lambeau Field on Sunday as a member of the Minnesota Vikings, there’s sure to be a mixed reaction of boos and cheers for the former Packers quarterback.
NFL Network analyst Steve Mariucci suspects it will be more of the latter.
“It’s going to be like the Beatles going on The Ed Sullivan Show,” Mariucci said last Sunday on NFL GameDay Morning.
We’ll soon find out what Favre thinks the reaction to his return will be. Mariucci visits with Favre in Minneapolis on Thursday for a sit-down interview that will air Sunday on NFL GameDay Morning, NFL Network’s four-hour pregame show starting at 9 a.m. ET.
Favre and Mariucci have a unique relationship that goes back to their days in Green Bay. Mariucci has interviewed the NFL great several times for NFL Network, some of the lighter moments captured in the video above.
