It was a Sunday afternoon and the Favre family invited friends and family to attend the 1991 NFL Draft at their home. Brett Favre spent most of the day close to the telephone in his bedroom.
The Favre compound was packed full of people, inside the home and outside. When Seattle used the 16th pick in the first round to draft Dan McGuire of San Diego State and the L.A. Raiders picked Southern Cal quarterback with the 24th pick, Brett was a little upset.
In the second round with the the 33rd overall pick, Atlanta drafted Favre.
Later I had a chance to interview Brett in his backyard surrounded by his friends.
I asked him how he felt after McGuire and Marinovich were drafted ahead of him. Favre responded with a bold prediction.
"Well, we'll see in the coming years who is the best quarterback. I think, I'll prove, you know. I'll prove to everyone that I am the best," stated Favre.
