Eagles coach Doug Pederson’s bestie Brett Favre addressed the Eagles in Minny yesterday, and here’s what the Hall of Fame QB, who befriended Dougie when both were with the Packers, said:
“They’re a tremendous team. Their quarterback is the greatest to ever play, Bill Belichick is the greatest coach to ever coach. You know what they’re about They’re going to play the whole game. Don’t ever say . . . like last year, we have it won and we’re going to go through the drive-thru, that’s not a good idea.
“I congratulated them on the year they’ve had; it’s a wonderful year,” Favre said of the Eagles. “And just encouraged them to enjoy the moment. You think you’re always going to come back after you’ve gotten a chance to go but it’s such an honor to play in the Super Bowl. And to just embrace that. And I told them, ‘This is probably something I should have told you two weeks ago, but this is the longest two weeks of your life and it’s going to be the longest 24 hours plus of your life. The game at this point can not get here quick enough. But it’s going to slow down even more.’”
