This is interesting. A man of ever-changing allegiances. That’s former Green Bay Packers quarterback Brett Favre.
There was word that Favre was cheering for one of his other former teams — the bag of crap Minnesota Vikings — to win the Super Bowl a couple weeks back. Well, that obviously isn’t happening.
And that’s really TOO BAD.
What we didn’t note at the time was that Favre was essentially cheering against his former teammate and supposed friend, Eagles’ coach Doug Pederson, in rooting for the Stinkings.
Well, no worries. The Favre allegiance relocates as quickly as the wind changes directions. Favre is apparently now in the Eagles’ camp. Pederson has turned to the old gunslinger to talk to the team prior to the big game.

Frankly, the Eagles probably need to hear what Favre has to say. They don’t have the Super Bowl experience like the New England Patriots do.
And while you might think that doesn’t matter, we’re almost certain we know what Favre’s message is going to be. For a team and players, most of which are seeing their first Super Bowl action, it’s an important one.
Simply, you’re here. You’re young. You may think this is easy now and I’ll be back to X number of Super Bowls in my career, but it doesn’t work that way.
Favre, of course, went to two, but won just one. He had two other real shots, reaching the NFC Championship game two other times, once with the Packers and once with the Vikings. He blew both of those opportunities by throwing what were essentially game-ending interceptions.
If anyone thinks Brett Favre’s major regret isn’t winning more championships, well, I think you’d be way off base.
So listen up, Eagles.
