Jerry Glanville now is admitting he's the one who traded Brett Favre out of Atlanta.

Back in the mid-to-late 1990s, the former Falcons coach said former Falcons General Manager Ken Herock was the mover behind tradng Favre back in 1992. Herock always maintained it was Glanville who wanted to get rid of Favre. In more recent years, Glanville has talked about Favre's excessive drinking in his one year with the Falcons but has not directly said he wanted to trade him.

But in a recent radio interview with WNSR in Nashville, via a post on ProFootballTalk.com, Glanville said he had Favre traded after his rookie season.

"I had to get him out of Atlanta. ... I could not sober him up," Glanville said. "I sent him to a city where at 9:00 at night the only thing that's open is Chili Joes. You can get it two ways, with or without onions. And that's what made Brett Favre make a comeback was going to a town that closed down. If I would have traded him to New York, nobody to this day would have known who Brett Favre ever was."

Revisionists history is generally a tall tale... Glanville and the Falcons might have dealt him because they couldn't settle him down... but I am sure they didn't choose Green Bay for Favre... that 1st round pick had much to do with it...

BTW... if that was your interests.. Wisconsin is the last place to send him... apparently they don't realize the entire winter is beer season here.. summer too I guess. lol.

Yep. Great idea. Send him to a state where there's a bar and church on every other block. Someone should inform Mr Glanville of what is brewed in Milwaukee.
