“My experience in pro football means nothing,” Favre said. “Absolutely nothing here. It’s totally different. So our biggest learning curve as a team might be my learning curve.”

Favre said during these early days of training camp, he’ll lean on the other coaches to learn the terminology and scheme. But what he offers immediately is the real-world experience of dealing with people, directing a huddle and figuring out what can turn a good player into a better one.

Whether it’s Green Bay or Oak Grove, some things in football don’t change.

“I really believe I’m good at reading people,” Favre said. “From being in the huddle, being in the locker room and in all those meetings for all those years, I understand that some people learn this way and some learn another way. … My whole job is to try and keep things simple. The more you have to think, the less your talent can show.”
