Last night after Thursday Night Football, the NFL Network premiered a new series narrated by Tim McGraw called “The Timeline” which chronicled Brett Favre’s tumultuous exit from the Green Bay Packers to his triumphant return to Lambeau Field on Thanksgiving.
“The Timeline” re-airs tonight at 7 p.m.
The trailer sure looks good! I didn’t know this, but Tim and Brett are close friends and Tim co=produced this documentary as well. The one-hour show features sitdown interviews with Favre, Aaron Rodgers, Mike McCarthy, Ted Thompson and more, as well as never before seen footage of Favre at his home in Mississippi and his return to Lambeau Field.
My favorite quote from the series:
“I wanted to play for anyone who would play the Packers.” – Brett Favre
