Eagles' Lane Johnson continues to take shots at Patriots

Philadelphia Eagles' Lane Johnson Blasts 'Arrogant' Patriots Once More

However, the veteran offensive lineman made an eyebrow-raising assertion when he claimed that Patriots Coach Bill Belichick was "talking [crap]" to his own head coach, Doug Pederson, before the Super Bowl. Bill talking s- to our head coach [Doug Pederson] before the game. "But a lot of (expletive) kind of built to that, and I just got exhausted of hearing about it, man, to be honest".

Light joins 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.

Light was announced Wednesday as the newest member of the New England Patriots Hall of Fame, beating out former teammates Richard Seymour and Mike Vrabel in a fan vote.

Until then, we'll just have to settle for more soundbites via Johnson and the Eagles. "They've won for a long time", Johnson said on the Pardon My Take podcast.

This isn't the first time Johnson has ripped the Patriots. Following the Eagles' win over the Minnesota Vikings in the NFC Championship Game, Johnson immediately turned his sights to New England, calling Brady a "pretty boy" and saying "there's nothing I'd like to do more than dethrone that guy".

Lachlan Murdoch, not James, will lead new Fox company
The position of current 21st Century Fox CEO James Murdoch , younger brother of Lachlan Murdoch , is unclear. After Lachlan Murdoch essentially left the family media empire in 2005, the answer appeared to be James.

"Here's what pissed me off", Johnson said on The Steve Austin Show, per ESPN. "It's not. And that's what I got mad at, the arrogance by them".

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.

"I saw a defense that wasn't overly talented", Johnson went on. "It was all really about containing Tom Brady", he added. You only get to do this job one time, so let's have fun while we're doing it. "I know that he's a great player". He even before that game, however, talked about how the Eagles were going to find a way to win. "Everybody is half-a-d scared of them, and they're beat before they get on the field", he said. For more than a decade, Matt fearlessly protected Tom Brady's blind side and played an immeasurably important role in delivering three Super Bowl titles and five conference championships. I can tell you that firsthand from my rookie year.

But it sounds like Johnson may get a chance to air his grievances with Belichick (and potentially Kraft) in the near future.
