Lane Johnson Still Upset with Patriots' 'Arrogance' After Super Bowl Win

Eagle Belichick and Kraft talked ‘s—t’ before Super Bowl

Johnson laid into the Patriots again Tuesday, this time on "The Steve Austin Show", and alluded to some behind-the-scenes pre-Super Bowl smack talk from Patriots owner Robert Kraft and coach Bill Belichick that he did not appreciate. Bill talking s-t to our head coach before the game. "I'm not going to say it, but a lot of s- kind built up to that, and I just got exhausted of hearing about it, man, to be honest".

After the Super Bowl, he described the Patriots as a "fear-based organization" with players who "act like f--ing robots". Do I think people enjoy [it] and can say, "I had a lot of fun playing there"?

Johnson even had time to take a shot at New England over the unusual Malcolm Butler situation, slamming the culture in the organisation for the way their players are overly obedient and reserved in their media duties. And he's just going to keep telling us this. It was all really about containing Tom Brady. Johnson acknowledged that the Eagles had a "hard time doing that", as Brady threw for "505 yards", but he asserted that his team "had the upper hand" from the start. "What do you think they're going to say, 'I (bleeping) hated it there?' No". To be honest, I really have no idea what he did. "Hey, stop being a d-head". If Super Bowl MVP awards could be given to coaches, it would've belonged to Pederson.

Meanwhile, as Pederson received universal acclaim for his play-calling and aggressive mindset, Belichick was forced to dodge questions behind his mysterious choice to bench cornerback Malcolm Butler - a decision he still hasn't explained, by the way. And if you go out of line, they'll cut your ass. I graduated top of my class in kindergarten and know that 5 is greater than 1.

"I can remember some big moments on the field and some big games and things of that nature, but most of my fondest memories are joking with the guys and pulling some practical jokes", said Light, who once left the four tires of Brady's auto in the quarterback's locker as a means of lightening the tension during a particularly stressful week.

"Playoff, close to game, I try to approach it fearless". Everybody is half-assed scared of them and they're beat before they get on the field.

Johnson suggested that he'd rather win one championship having fun, like the Eagles clearly did, than win multiple Super Bowl's under the bordering on oppressive nature of Bill Belichick's regime. In reaction to Johnson's comments, the Boston Globe's Ben Volin noted that Philadelphia and New England might hold a joint practice during training camp, at which the lineman could "tell Belichick and Kraft all about his issues with them".
