There will be a former Super Bowl winning QB talking to the Eagles before Super Bowl LII, at the request of head coach Doug Pederson.
Pro Football Hall of Fame member, former three-time NFL MVP, and Super Bowl XXXI Champion Brett Favre will address the Eagles Saturday ahead of their matchup on Sunday with the New England Patriots.
It really pays off for Doug Pederson to have a personal relationship with Favre dating back to the late '90s when Pederson served as his backup on the Mike Holmgren-led Green Bay Packers.
Favre, a former Vikings quarterback himself, will be in Minneapolis for the big game, and while he's in town, Pederson asked if he could say a few words at the Eagles' hotel on Saturday morning to kick off team meetings.
Nick Foles, the Eagles' backup QB, who is getting ready to face Tom Brady, was really excited to have the chance to hear from one of the greatest quarterbacks in NFL history this weekend.
"He's one of the greatest to ever play the game," Foles said of Favre. "Just his style of play, his toughness -- he is a true gunslinger, a rocket arm, can throw it from any which angle. Off his back foot, he can throw it anywhere he wants. He's been there. He's won the big games. He's played a lot, a lot of football, so anytime you have the opportunity to listen to someone like him speak, it's huge, so I can't wait to listen to what wisdom and knowledge he gives us. I know everyone on our team will be excited to hear him speak."
