Brett Favre will give a speech to the Eagles before Super Bowl LII
Philadelphia Eagles head coach Doug Pederson invited his old friend, Brett Favre to speak to his team this week.
The Philadelphia Eagles have officially kicked off the most intense week of the season on Monday. After the opening night for Super Bowl LII, the stage just keeps getting bigger for the Eagles. On Monday and Tuesday, the team had a light set of work. Starting on Wednesday they are back to business as usual and staying focused.
For some Eagles veterans like LeGarrette Blount, Chris Long, Malcolm Jenkins, Torrey Smith and a few others have some experience in the big game. But most importantly, their head coach Doug Pederson has a little bit of Super Bowl experience under his belt as well.
Although Pederson was never one to steal the spotlight as a player, he has clearly gained plenty of knowledge in the game of football to lead a team to the big stage. But as a coach with a ton of resources, Pederson has decided to call in some help before the big game.
Doug Pederson has invited his old friend and former teammate, Hall of Fame quarterback Brett Favre to the Eagles temporary facilities on Saturday.

An extra dose of motivation:
It can’t get any better than Brett Favre as a guest speaker! Favre is a Super Bowl champion, eleven-time Pro Bowler, and inducted into the NFL Hall of Fame. Now, Favre may not have the same amount of rings as the Eagles opponent this week. But his 20 years of playing experience could really help motivate the Eagles roster less than 24 hours before kick off.

This isn’t the first time Doug Pederson called in some help for extra motivation. Just last month, the team hosted future NBA Hall of Famer, Kobe Bryant in L.A. It’s good to know that the Eagles went out and defeated a red-hot Los Angeles Rams team in their own stadium. Maybe after their conference with Favre, they will go out and grab the Lombardi trophy!
