LeGarrette Blount not impressed with Brett Favre giving Eagles a pep talk
Doug Pederson has invited a Hall of Famer who also happens to be a former teammate of his to give the Philadelphia Eagles a pep talk the day before the Super Bowl, and we know at least one veteran player who is not going to be star struck over it.
Earlier in the week, Pederson announced that Brett Favre is going to address the Eagles at their team hotel on Saturday morning. When asked on Thursday if he has any specific questions for Favre, running back LeGarrette Blount worked in a zinger.
I asked LeGarrette Blount if he has anything he wants to ask Brett Favre Saturday morning when he speaks to the #Eagles. He said, “How many Super Bowls has he won?” I said one. Blount laughed and said, “Na, there ain’t too much I want to ask him”

Blount, of course, won two Super Bowls with the Patriots, whom he will face in Super Bowl LII.
Pederson was Favre’s backup when the Green Bay Packers defeated the Patriots in the Super Bowl back in 1997, so you can understand the connection. Still, some have wondered why Eagles players would want a Packers legend — one who didn’t play all that long ago — trying to fire them up with a speech.
Blount was obviously just trying to be funny. If anyone decides asks Favre about the recent lawsuit that was filed against him, then things could get a little bit weird.
