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.
Brett Favre will speak to the @Eagles Saturday night at the #SuperBowl as a guest of Doug Pederson. The two were teammates for 7 years on the Packers.

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.
Well I don’t think he gave the Packers any pep talk back in 2011. So it goes to show where his loyalty to the Packers is.
I highly doubt the Packers would have wanted a pep talk from Favre in 2011 when he was still with the Vikings. Plus they didn’t need him because they had Charles fucking Woodson. “If the president don’t wanna come watch us in the Super Bowl, we’ll go see him! White House on three! 1, 2, 3.. WHITE HOUSE!!!!”
Favre took the Vikings to a breath of the SuperBowl in an away Championship game as an old man, instead of being blown out in the Championship game.. at home… with a young QB leading the Skol
Kiss of Death.
This should surprise no one that knows Favre. His only allegiance is to himself and those that are fans of his. Fuck Green Bay, fuck Atlanta, fuck New York, fuck former team mates he spent more time with than he spent in Minnesota. Why would you root for Minnesota over Doug Pederson and his Eagles? Because deep down that asshole knows it would piss off the majority of Packer nation if the Vikings were finally able to win a SB and Favre would be on record endorsing those tools.
Brett Favre only has an allegiance to himself and himself only. The more and more I think about it with all the shit talking the Eagles and their fans are doing. I am forced into cheering on the Patriots in this superbowl. I’m from Western, MA and am a huge Bruins and Celtics fan. However I grew up with the Packers because why the hell not? I loved Favre as a kid, and I loved Reggie White as well. But seriously fuck that dude. I hope ugh I feel dirty for saying this that the Patriots blow out that team by 30 points.
