"Bill talking [crap] to our head coach before the game", Johnson continued. "And I just got exhausted of hearing about it, man, to be honest".

Following their famous Super Bowl LII win over Belichick, Brady and co, Philly's outspoken tackle Lane Johnson came out and took some pretty feisty shots at the "Patriot way", labelling their franchise as "fear based". He started all 16 games in seven of his seasons, was a three-time Pro Bowler, earned one first-team All-Pro selection and played in five Super Bowls, winning three.

The Super Bowl was more than three months ago, but Eagles offensive tackle Lane Johnson is still all sorts of annoyed with the Patriots. He also made fun of Patriots players for sounding like robots (with a choice word mixed in) during interviews.

Until then, we'll just have to settle for more soundbites via Johnson and the Eagles.

Although Light would fail to win another Super Bowl, he helped the team make it to two more Super Bowl appearances, falling both times to the New York Giants.

Finally, Philip Green , who joined the board in 2011 and became Chairman in 2014, is labelled as an "unquestioning optimist". The report said: "These were empty threats - the Carillion directors knew it and got their way".

He'll join Kevin Faulk (2016), Troy Brown (2012) and Tedy Bruschi (2013) as the fourth player to enter The Hall as a career Patriot with three Super Bowl rings.

Johnson said on Steven Austin's podcast this week, according to ESPN. "The Patriots, obviously, I respect their coach, I respect Bill (Belichick), I respect Tom Brady, but just because the way that they won the Super Bowls, the Patriot Way, is that how everybody else is supposed to do the same thing? No". I saw a defense that wasn't overly talented.

The 2017 Pro Bowler echoed some of that language Tuesday, when Austin brought up Malcolm Jenkins, the Patriots' starting cornerback who was mysteriously benched by Belichick for nearly the entirety of the Super Bowl.

Oh, and don't bother trying to back up those claims because everyone knows they're B.S. Saying Belichick and Kraft "talked [expletive]" to their opponents is about as asinine an assertion as you'll ever hear against this team. "It was all really about containing Tom Brady", Johnson said on the Austin podcast. He even before that game, however, talked about how the Eagles were going to find a way to win.

"Like I said, they're robots." he noted. To another Twitter user who called him "classless" Tuesday and told him, "Grow up, shut up, and move on", Johnson replied, "Or what?"
