Brett Favre to speak to Eagles ahead of Super Bowl

Posted February 02, 2018

So I want to make sure they understand that we have to go in, we've got to stay focused, but at the same time we can refuel and kind of recharge.

Pederson said he would only rehearse halftime the one time this week.

It's not going to be a pregame, rah-rah speech, and it won't be the defining last words the team hears, but Pro Football Hall of Fame quarterback Brett Favre, who played with Eagles head coach Doug Pederson when both were in Green Bay, will address the team on Saturday morning at the team hotel. "We're great friends", Pederson said.

Pederson was Favre's backup in Green Bay from 1996-98 and again from 2001-04.

Pederson, whose 50th birthday was also on Wednesday, won a ring with that team too, but was the third-string quarterback behind Jim McMahon.

The Eagles are looking forward to hearing from Favre.

This is Pederson's second season as the Eagles head coach.

"He was the offensive coordinator so he was always calling the plays", Eachus said.

The Eagles' first on-field workout of Super Bowl week included practicing for the Patriots' schemes as well as Justin Timberlake's songs. He began his professional coaching career as the offensive quality control coordinator with the Eagles from 2009-2010, before becoming the quarterbacks coach for two seasons and then moving on to the Chiefs. The Eagles had a conservative game plan in their 15-10 win over Atlanta in the divisional round, whereas they surprised Minnesota by letting QB Nick Foles loose.

"It's incredible, isn't it?" said Eugene Chung, who coaches the Eagles' tight ends after working for Reid in Philadelphia and Kansas City. "He immediately gains the respect of his players".

"Try to anticipate the best you can and try to put your guys in the best possible scenario on game day to expect certain things". But the increasing number of his former assistants as head coaches will give him more chances to enjoy someone else's success. Lewis, who labeled Reid "a builder of coaches", long ago identified those two as potential stars in the profession.

"When the Eagles hired him, it made sense to me". It was a big move when they signed him. "Now he has proven to everyone that he can do the job".
