DEMOVSKY: Well, he was the third-string quarterback. But he was never able to impress coach Jerry Glanville because Brett missed meetings. He liked to go out and enjoy the Atlanta nightlife. Jerry Glanville actually said that he went to several bars where he knew Favre would hang out and asked them to stop serving him because it was interfering with his ability to basically learn how to be an NFL quarterback. CORNISH: So what made the Green Bay Packers finally take a look at him? You write that they hired a new general manager, Ron Wolf. But this first year in Atlanta doesn’t sound like an exciting one. DEMOVSKY: No. Ron Wolf, before he got hired by the Packers, was a scout for the New York Jets. And he rated Brett Favre as the number-one player in the 1991 NFL draft. And so when Wolf got the job in Green Bay late in the 1991 season, he told the team president that he was going to trade a first round draft pick for this quarterback, even though Favre was the third-stringer in Atlanta.
