Eagles’ Lane Johnson takes another jab at the Patriots while talking about Tom Brady
Philadelphia Eagles offensive tackle Lane Johnson once again jabbed at their Super Bowl 52 opponent, New England Patriots. He stated that there’s no way their team would employ “The Patriot way”.
Johnson called the Patriots a “fear-based organization’ as per Logan Mullen of NESN.com.
In a recent interview with Tim McManus of ESPN, Johnson was asked whether he would change his tune about the Patriots’ approach.
“Not really,” Johnson told McManus. “I mean, I’m having fun playing. I’ve been in losing situations before. Everyone is going to come around and make sure to try and rub it in my face. I’ve had worse stuff than a quote come back to my face with these suspensions.”
Johnson also credited Tom Brady’s role for the Patriots and stated that the team’s success is basically because of the 41-year-old quarterback.
The reigning Super Bowl champs learned the hard way that defending the title is no easy task.
Not even the return of quarterback Carson Wentz from injury could help them achieve their cause.
In their recent matchup, the Eagles experienced their worst trashing of the season. They took on the 9-1 New Orleans Saints, but ended being torched by torched by Drew Brees, 48-7.
