Lane Johnson still reveling in hate from Patriots fans
The ever-outspoken Lane Johnson is definitely not backing down from his criticism of the New England Patriots, even now that it’s been nearly two weeks since the Super Bowl.
The Eagles’ offensive tackle has been talking about the Patriots for weeks now, famously calling them a “fear-based organization” and hinted that playing for New England was “miserable.” Johnson isn’t backing down from that, even after several former Patriots contested his remarks.
“They kept interviewing ex-Patriots players,” Johnson said, via Zack Cox of NESN. “What do you think they’re going to say? ‘I (expletive) hated it there’? No. ‘I won Super Bowls. We had a great time.’ They’re not going to bad-mouth their coach. They’re not going to say what they really want to say. Do you think that’s going to happen? Hell no, it’s not going to happen.”
It’s safe to say Johnson was unbothered by criticism from Patriots fans in light of his comments.
“I just pissed in everybody’s Cheerios,” Johnson said. “And everybody in Boston — hey, I’ve got hate mail I still haven’t read. I’m looking forward to reading it.”
Johnson even went after Tom Brady in the leadup to the Super Bowl, and he hasn’t stopped afterwards. The Eagles’ victory will make him think he was proven right.
