It's nice to see the quarterbacking great acknowledge the safety of the Royal and Ancient.

From Tom Schad of USA Today, quoting Favre on a concussions documentary the former Green Bay Packer has produced:

"I got three grandsons. I'm not going to encourage them to play football, I'm not going to discourage them, but I would much rather be a caddie for them in golf than watch them play football," Favre said on Tuesday's show. "And that's crazy. People say, 'I can't believe he would say that.' But you know, head injuries are going to continue. The quality of player is only going to go up, and that means concussions are not going to go down. So it's a scary issue."
