Brett Favre to Eagles: 'Enjoy the moment'

Brett Favre has been to two Super Bowls as a player, so Philadelphia Eagles coach Doug Pederson thought the former quarterback would be a natural to address his team on the eve of Super Bowl LII.

>> Read more trending news

Favre didn’t disappoint. He talked with the Eagles on Saturday night at the team’s hotel, NBC Sports Philadelphia reported. His advice was simple and direct.

“We know the Patriots. They're a tremendous team. Their quarterback is the greatest to ever play. Bill Belichick is the greatest coach to ever coach. You know what they're about," Favre said, recounting his speech to NBC Sports Philadelphia. "They're going to play the whole game. Don't ever say -- kinda like last year, 'We have it won and we're going to go to the drive-thru.' That's not a good idea."

That was a reference to the Atlanta Falcons, who led the Patriots 28-3 during the third quarter of Super Bowl LI, only to see New England stage the greatest comeback in Super Bowl history to win in overtime.

Favre won Super Bowl XXXI with the Packers against the Patriots in 1997 at the Superdome in New Orleans. He lost the following season against Denver. He said that he told the Eagles to savor the success they have had this season.

"I congratulated them on the year they've had; it's a wonderful year," Favre told NBC Sports Philadelphia. "And just encouraged them to enjoy the moment. You think you're always going to come back after you've gotten a chance to go but it's such an honor to play in the Super Bowl. And to just embrace that. And I told them, 'This is probably something I should have told you two weeks ago, but this is the longest two weeks of your life and it's going to be the longest 24 hours plus of your life. The game at this point can not get here quick enough. But it's going to slow down even more.'" 

Is Bill Belichick hinting at retirement?

Fox Sports’ Colin Cowherd believes New England Patriots coach Bill Belichick has been dropping hints that he plans on retiring after Super Bowl LII.

>> Read more trending news

Cowherd went on a rant during his show, “The Herd,” on Thursday saying he believes there’s a 50-50 chance that the five-time Super Bowl-winning coach will retire, especially if the Patriots defeat the Eagles on Sunday.

The host pointed out a quote in which Belichick said he believed quarterback Tom Brady has “earned the right to make the decision to retire,” which he somehow believes gives away the coach’s own plans.

>> Super Bowl LII: Kickoff time, what channel

“That is not a small thing,” Cowherd said, while beaming with pride at his discovery. “The Kraft family is doubling down on Brady over Belichick. They’re doubling down on it. OK, remember the first time, I told you, we saw the ESPN story that Jimmy Garoppolo, a threat, get him out of town. What they were saying is, ‘Mr. Belichick, Tom trumps Belichick.’ The ESPN story reported it, I theorized it before the story came out, everybody’s denying it but now they’re admitting there’s tension. Well why would there be tension? So Jimmy Garoppolo was a threat, out of town.”

Cowherd continued to point out that Belichick, “a legendary grudge-holder,” was forced to trade both Garoppolo and Jacoby Brissett for “less than market value,” despite always wanting a succession plan and numerous capable backup quarterbacks.

He also acknowledged that the coach “suddenly” assisted in his coordinators --Josh McDaniels and Matt Patricia -- getting head coaching jobs, which he’s “never” done in the past. Additionally, the coach openly helped McDaniels go to the Indianapolis Colts -- an AFC team with Andrew Luck, who the host referred to as the best quarterback in the conference other than Brady -- with “all of the Patriots secrets.”

Finally, Cowherd noted that Belichick has been more “light-hearted” during Super Bowl week by wearing a fedora while walking off of the team plane and smiling more during media sessions, to which the pundit presumed meant that Sunday’s game would be his “swan song.”

So there you have it, folks. Bill Belichick is going to retire because he wore a fedora. Might as well start looking for a new coach now, Bob Kraft!

While there are some valid points made here, it all boils down to Cowherd wanting to hear himself talk during a “hot take,” as is usually the case. Surely, Belichick will still be wearing sleeveless hoodies on the Patriots’ sideline next season, despite the pundit’s conspiracy theories.

Mural in Philadelphia shows eagle carrying Tom Brady away

Situated on Bainbridge Street between 8th and 9th streets, an unknown artist painted a mural that would warm the art of a Philly fanatic.

It depicts an eagle soaring in flight, with its talons clutched around a miniature Tom Brady.

The Patriots are the defending Super Bowl champions, and Brady has led the team to five titles. 

The Eagles are the underdogs for Sunday’s Super Bowl, but that doesn’t mean the team won’t try and keep Brady off the field. This artist in Philadelphia had a unique solution.

The former quarterback returned to Minnesota on Friday for Super Bowl week and stopped at several places to visit with children, KMSP reported.

Favre visited the University of Minnesota Masonic Children’s Hospital and the Ronald McDonald House, KMSP reported.

“To think that a visit, a signed picture, a hug or a handshake can go a long ways and brighten someone’s day is -- I don’t even know how to put it in words,” Favre told KMSP. “I know as well as anyone how fortunate I am to have played the game of football and to have made the amount of money I was fortunate enough to make. It had nothing to do with me and had everything to do with God and the people around me, so this is the right thing to do and it sure makes you feel good.”

Favre said he was going to give a pep talk to the Philadelphia Eagles before they meet the New England Patriots in Super Bowl LII on Sunday in Minneapolis KMSP reported. Eagles head coach Doug Pederson is Favre's former teammate; the two played for the Green Bay Packers.

Justin Timberlake goes on Target run in Twin Cities 

Justin Timberlake decided to go on a Target run this week in Minnesota, and the singer tweeted out a surprise to his fans, KARE reported.

>> Read more trending news

The singer, who will headline the halftime show for Super Bowl LII on Sunday in Minneapolis, filmed himself at a Target store in St. Paul filling his shopping cart with gifts and necessary items.

“I'm doing my Target run. Got socks, got PJ Masks -- my kid loves them, got Fruity Pebbles -- because I love them, got Reese's Pieces -- shout out to ‘E.T.’ the movie,” Timberlake said on the video.

Timberlake, whose latest album is called “Man of the Woods,” signed five copies of a limited vinyl edition of the record, saying he was going to leave it with the store manager. Fans who wanted the disc had to give a special code to the manager, Timberlake said in the video.

“The code word is aardvark, I don't know why, just sounds like a great word,” he said.

The video was posted Friday afternoon, but it could have been filmed earlier in the week, KARE reported.

Justin Timberlake says son 'will never play football'

Singer Justin Timberlake made it very clear during a news conference Thursday. His son will never play football.

Timberlake, who was promoting his halftime performance for Super Bowl LII, joked that he would dress out as a wide receiver if the New England Patriots needed him, ESPN reported.

But when asked if he would support the idea of his 2-year-old son, Silas, someday running routes in the NFL, Timberlake nixed it.

“Uh, he will never play football,” Timberlake said. “No, no.”

“I mean, yeah, it's kind of like that thing where my main objective is that he become a great person. And if he wants to get into the arts or sports, then yeah, I would fully support that,” Timberlake said. “I think I can hopefully offer him some advice on what to do and what not to do, so yeah, but right now we're working on our manners. That's a big deal in our house right now. It's like, one thing at a time."

During the news conference, Timberlake also scotched rumors that his former band, ’N Sync, or Janet Jackson, whom he appeared with 14 years ago in the now-infamous “wardrobe malfunction” halftime show, would join him onstage. He only would confirm that his band, The Tennessee Kids, would accompany him, ESPN reported.

Timberlake, 37, is releasing his new album, "Man of the Woods," on Friday.

Tom Brady criticized after kissing 11-year-old son on lips during documentary

In an episode of his Facebook documentary series, “Tom vs. Time,” New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady can be seen kissing his 11-year-old son on the lips twice while receiving a massage — and people are really grossed out.

Jack Brady enters the room where his dad is being massaged, and asks a question about his fantasy team. Tom responds by asking his son for a kiss in return.

“Oh, hello. I was wondering if I could check my fantasy team,” Jack asks.

“What do I get?” Brady replies.

Jack then kisses his father on the lips, but Tom isn’t satisfied and asks for another one.

“That was like a peck,” Tom says.

Jack is Tom’s eldest son from a previous relationship with actress Bridget Moynahan. He has two other children, Benjamin, 8, and Vivian, 5, with model Gisele Bündchen.

The quarterback, who is seeking his sixth NFL title with the Patriots at Super Bowl LII on Sunday, received a lot of negative feedback on social media for the video.

Maybe Brady just likes kissing members of his family.

Prior to last year’s Super Bowl, Brady took a moment to share a tribute to his mother who was too ill to attend any of his games this season but made the trek out Houston for the big game.

In the sweet photo, Brady is posed with his mother, Galynn Brady, who received kisses on both cheeks from her son, Tom Brady, and her husband, Tom Brady Sr.

“Sandwich kiss for Mom at Picture Day!!! Go Pats!!!!” he captioned the photo on Instagram.

Patriots' Rob Gronkowski cleared to play in Super Bowl

New England Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski has been cleared from the NFL's concussion protocol, allowing him to play in Super Bowl LII on Sunday.

The league announced the update to Gronkowski's status just before 4 p.m. Thursday.

Speaking to reporters Tuesday night after an event promoting the Madden 18 video game, Gronk told reporters he would play in the Super Bowl.

He confirmed that on Thursday, telling reporters in Minneapolis that he was “ready to roll.”

“I officially got the word today that I was cleared, so it is super nice to hear from the doctors going through the whole process,” Gronkowski said.

Jacksonville Jaguars safety Barry Church has reportedly been fined more than $24,000 for the hit, which took the Patriots tight end out just before halftime.

“It’s football,” Gronkowski said Thursday when asked about the hit. “It is what it is. It’s a split-second to make a decision.

“It’s running full speed one way -- I’m going the other way. It’s just part of the game. It happens, and (you have) just got to move on.”

Tom Brady does not want radio announcer fired

New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady does not want the sports radio host who made uncomplimentary remarks about his 5-year-old daughter fired, ESPN reported.

“We all have careers and make mistakes,” Brady said during Super Bowl LII Opening Night. “I’d hate for someone to have to change their life over something like that. That was certainly not what he intended.

“I certainly hope the guy isn’t fired.”

While discussing the opening scenes of a documentary about Brady called “Tom vs. Time,” Thursday night, Alex Reimer referred to Brady’s daughter Vivian as “annoying,” followed by an uncomplimentary phrase.

Brady’s fans and radio station WEEI condemned the remark on Twitter, but it went mostly unaddressed by the station until Monday morning. 

When Brady joined the “Kirk & Callahan Show” for his weekly segment on the air, he cut his interview short and said he was disappointed to hear about the remark.

“I just thought it was not very appropriate,” Brady said Monday night. “Look, I think we all go through our life and sometimes we say things we shouldn't say or make mistakes, and that happens. I can express it and you move on.”

Last week, Entercom, which is WEEI’s parent company, announced a multiyear partnership extension with the Patriots, ESPN reported.

WEEI and Entercom issued a statement on Monday, saying “We are disappointed and embarrassed by Alex Reimer's on-air comments made last Thursday evening. His remarks were utterly indefensible, and mean-spirited commentary directed in any way at children is wholly inappropriate. Mr. Reimer remains suspended indefinitely from all WEEI platforms.”

Brady said Monday night that he expected criticism about his play, but added that making derogatory comments about his family crossed the line.

“I just know everybody is real protective of their kids,” Brady said Monday night. “I never stayed away from criticism. I understand that criticism is part of sports. But I certainly don't think that my children or anybody else's children deserve to be in that. And that's what I said.”

Minnesota man gives Super Bowl tickets to Eagles fan who is cancer survivor 

One Minnesota man could not stomach watching the Philadelphia Eagles play in the Super Bowl, even though he had won tickets to the game in the NFL raffle. However, he gave his tickets to someone who was thrilled for the chance to see the game in Minneapolis -- a teenage Eagles fan who has battled cancer since he was 3, WCCO reported.

Cole Fitzgerald, 13, got the good news Monday. The tickets were delivered to him in Philadelphia by Spare Key, an organization that helps families in crisis with ill children.

The tickets were donated by a man from Eden Prairie, Minnesota.

“The person who won the tickets from the raffle said, ‘I’m a die-hard Vikings fan. There’s no way I can go to the Super Bowl,” Spare Key director of development Mary Serie told WCCO.

When the Vikings lost 38-7 in the NFC Championship game to the Eagles, the man called Spare Key to donate his tickets to Cole, since he read an online story about the boy managing his junior high school football team, WCCO reported.

“That’s when he found Cole,” Serie said.

The youth, who lives in Philadelphia, is an eighth-grade cancer survivor who battled neuroblastoma since he was 3. Serie flew out to Philadelphia over the weekend with the tickets, WCCO reported.

“I want to thank the fan,” Cole said. “Sorry for your season. Good luck next year.”
