Brett Favre to speak to Eagles on Saturday

This is Pederson's second season as the Eagles head coach. Favre will speak to the Eagles on Saturday morning at their hotel, the day before they play the New England Patriots in Super Bowl LII.

"He's one of the greatest to ever play the game", Foles said of Favre. He accepted a head-coaching job in 2005 at Calvary Baptist Academy in Shreveport, La., and in four years at the high school went 33-7.

The move into National Football League coaching under Reid, even in a quality control position, didn't take "a lot of twisting of my arm", Pederson said this week.

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.

"It's fantastic, isn't it?" said Eugene Chung, who coaches the Eagles' tight ends after working for Reid in Philadelphia and Kansas City.

Brett Favre, who took the Green Bay Packers to two Super Bowls and almost did the same for the team that plays here in Minnesota, will be speaking to the Philadelphia Eagles on Saturday, according to coach Doug Pederson.

Kenya govt declares Odinga's resistance movement a criminal group
While threats have been made in the past, the government switching off media broadcasting signals is unusual, the BBC reported. Odinga's supporters crowded the streets, effectively shutting down traffic in the center of one of Africa's largest cities.

"When the Eagles hired him, it made sense to me".

Pederson has had motivational speakers address his team throughout the season - the most recent was former Los Angeles Laker Kobe Bryant prior to the December 10 game against the Rams - and is always searching for entertaining and meaningful messages for the players.

Midway through their Wednesday session coach Doug Pederson shut the event down for 30 minutes to simulate the extended duration of Sunday's halftime. He was in their shoes not long ago. "To see what he's done now to keep it all together, what a great statement". "He was not like a lot of the new younger coaches, he was more personable".

Ask a player who played for Pederson when he was the offensive coordinator for the Kansas City Chiefs, and former Hazleton Area star Nate Eachus feels Pederson was the best man for the job.

Belichick is expected to lose both of his coordinators to head coaching vacancies next week, with Matt Patricia (defense) going to Detroit and Josh McDaniels (offense) headed to Indianapolis.
