Peter King, an SI writer since 1989 and senior writer since 1990, has covered pro football at the magazine for a quarter-century. He is now the editor-in-chief of The MMQB, the magazine's microsite on all things football. King lives in Manhattan with wife Ann.
On Oct. 16, Brett Favre of the Packers began preparing for Sunday's game against the Vikings. Almost from the moment that Favre lifted himself, slowly and painfully, from his bed, SI's Peter King was at his side—at home, on the practice field, in team meetings. King's chronicle of Favre's week takes readers into the head and heart of one of the NFL's best young quarterbacks
