And people can't believe Favre is "defending" him...

And that's not all he said.

People can't believe his comments...

Favre's comments came after Chauvin was convicted of second-degree unintentional murder, third-degree murder, and second-degree manslaughter...

As we all know, Chauvin kneeled on Floyd's neck for more than 9 minutes, even after Floyd lost consciousness.

The football legend opened up about his thoughts on Floyd's death just a week after saying he wanted to keep "politics out of sports."

He said last week that he believed the involvement of politics in athletics has hurt games.

Favre said that it never used to be about politics when he was playing...

He also expressed he thought players protesting during the national anthem has "caused more turmoil than good" for sports in general.

"I guess the jury is out on whether it'll be a good thing or not. I think it's created more turmoil than good ... Something has to unify us."

"I felt like the flag, standing patriotically — because Blacks and whites and Hispanics have fought for this country and died for this country. It's too bad."

On Wednesday, Favre defended his comments about politics and sports after receiving backlash...

Saying: "I just gave my opinion. I'm certainly not a racist in spite of what some people might think, and you know, I'm for unity and I just feel like there's a better way to unify our country."

"That being said, there's a lot of things that need to stop." Favre said.

The NFL expressed support for the verdict in the Chauvin trial on Tuesday...

"Today's outcome in the Derek Chauvin trial in Minneapolis does not undo the loss of life," the statement read. "Mr. George Floyd should be here with us today. Our hearts remain with the Floyd Family, and we understand the pain, anger and frustration does not go away even when justice is delivered."

But Favre's latest comments are far from those expressed by the NFL...

"I find it hard to believe, and I'm not defending Derek Chauvin in any way, I find it hard to believe, first of all, that he intentionally meant to kill George Floyd," Favre said on his podcast Bolling with Favre.

"That being said, his actions were uncalled for," the 20-year NFL veteran added. "I don't care what color the person is on the street. I don't know what led to that video that we saw where his knee is on his neck, but the man had thrown in the towel."
