Brett Favre to deliver pre-game speech to Eagles

The Philadelphia Eagles are led by Doug Pederson, who is just in his second season at the helm.

The Eagles are looking forward to hearing from Favre.

Pederson's hiring didn't exactly qualify as a splash move, but it was one the organization can look back on as the right move. Matt Nagy, who succeeded Pederson as the coordinator in Kansas City, was chosen as Chicago's coach. "He is a very personable guy, a younger guy".

Hall of Fame quarterback Brett Favre will speak to the Eagles at their team meeting on Saturday before Super Bowl LII, Philadelphia coach Doug Pederson confirmed on Wednesday.

"He's one of the greatest to ever play the game", Foles said of Favre.

"It's a voice from the players, sometimes when you don't have that it's easy for the locker room not to be heard by a coach, " said Kelce, a member of the players council.

He is happy to see Philadelphia back in the Super Bowl for the third time and that another former MSU player in defensive lineman Fletcher Cox helped them get there. "Especially, enabling people to wear their Eagles jerseys".

It's all part of the plan he is implementing to get his team ready for the various gameday logistics of a typical Super Bowl, which takes around an hour longer to complete than a regular game and features extra down time following warmups before the game in addition to the extended halftime. "At the same time, if you aren't performing it will be the next man up".

The Eagles play the Patriots on Sunday for the National Football League championship. He is doing a great job.

Pederson was a backup quarterback in Green Bay in the late 1990s when Reid was coaching Brett Favre and the Packers' other QBs. 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. "Not a lot of the backup QBs have the headset on, but I wanted him talking to the coach". There are a lot of unselfish guys on that team, guys that have been around the league, played for different teams and are kind of meshing right now with the Eagles. But the increasing number of his former assistants as head coaches will give him more chances to enjoy someone else's success. He already knows the daily demands of being a pro athlete.
