Vince Lombardi Khristian davis


This speech is about Vince Lombardi"s first game as the coach for the Green Bay Packers. They may not be the best team in the NFL but they will out work everyone. According to Lombardi they will have confidence and believe in themselves.


Vinc Lombardi was a first year head coach for the Green Bay Packers. He was always a winning coach and he was going to a team that wasn't really known for winning.


The Green Bay packers were coming off a losing season. The team needed an extra push to kick the season off right. They needed there negative thoughts of the poor organization to lift into glorious triumph with this new coach.


The message was mainly intended to his team the Green Bay Packers. Everyone in that orginization was meant to hear his message. But in reality the whole world was shook by his speech. He not only gave inspiration to his team but he gave inspiration to the whole world.


Logos is an appeal to logic. Lombardi used logos in many ways. His logic was that everyone on the team will have confidence. If the team doesn't believe then no one else will. Also if you break the rules then you will be dealt with. He says that no one is bigger than the team. Lastly he used logos when he said that they WILL win some games this season. This shows that he is determined to be a good team.


Ethos is an appeal to ethics and background. Lombardi used ethos when he said he was never a losing coach. This gives him credibility as a coach who knows how to win. Also he uses ethos when he states that the players will trust in the coaches system. This shows that the players have faith in the coach and that he's been doing this for a long time and he knows what he is doing.


Pathos is an appeal to emotion. Lombardi uses this a lot because he takes pride in his job. He uses pathos when he says that they will outwork everyone. They may not be the best but they will put their blood,sweat, and tears to get better. Also when he says no one is bigger than the team as a whole. No one will be selfish and everyone is one family.


The most effective rehtorical appeal was logos. He was positive on what was going to happen and what wasn't going to happen. He was very blunt and straight forward with the way things would be ran on the team.


Words that really stood out to me was words like heart and pride. Heart is the main thing to become successful. Have a heart of a lion. Also another word that stood out was pride. You must take pride in what you are doing and if you don't then why do it .

Other devices

Irony is used in this speech. After the speech the players really took that to heart. The mext day they went out and won the first game of the season against the Chicago Bears their rivals.
