Alshon Jeffery boasts after delivering on Super Bowl guarantee
Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver Alshon Jeffery has been guaranteeing a Super Bowl for a year now in some sense of the word, and he was happy to bring up that prediction after he was proven right on Sunday.
Jeffery guaranteed during the week that the Eagles would beat the New England Patriots in Super Bowl LII, and he turned out to be right. He also wasn’t shy about reminding everyone about it after the victory.
“Man, I told y’all,” Jeffery said, via Josh Alper of ProFootballTalk. “Hey, we don’t care who we were playing. Facing this opponent, I knew Tom Brady — I respect him, a great player, probably one of the greatest ever, but hey, he had not played the Eagles yet. He [had played] the Eagles, not the 2017-18 Eagles.”
It’s worth noting that Jeffery predicted something similar a year ago, though he had to use a bit of a technicality to ensure that it remained true. He’s earned the right to the last laugh, though — he certainly did his part, catching a touchdown pass in the win.
