T Lane Johnson, Eagles, ready to face Patriots after criticizing them

PHILADELPHIA – Lane Johnson, right tackle of the Philadelphia Eagles, awaits reactions against fans for the comments he made against the New England Patriots organization, when his team travels to Foxborough, Massachussetts, to face the rival They won in the Super Bowl LII in what will be their second preseason duel. "Oh, yes. I hope so. I hope it's hell, "Johnson said after Tuesday's practice. "You can curse me, you can tell me what you want. At the end of the day, I'm not going to block them, I'm going to block players on the field, so it does not matter what they say (the fans). The Eagles offensive tackle, Lane Johnson, claims to have hit the head in describing how the Patriots operate Getty Images "I know that they will not welcome me, that this team will not be well received there, so that is simply going to cause us to get the best of us," the lineman added. Johnson has been critical of the Patriots on several occasions by describing them as "an organization based on fear" with players who "act as pin robots". He also noted that team owner Robert Kraft and coach Bill Belichick provoked Eagles owner Jeffrey Lurie and coach Doug Pederson before the Super Bowl: "I just felt they did not give us a chance in the game. I felt we were disrespected. I made a lot of comments about why I said what I said, "Johnson explained. "It's not that I happened to say something and that's it. It was because I felt that they had disrespected me and the team. No other team came out to face it. "Belichick was questioned about Johnson's criticism during his press conference on Tuesday." We were focused on what we were doing. We need to have a good practice today and try to improve our team today. That's what we're going to do, "responded Belichick.

Johnson believes he knows why his comments had an effect. "People can discredit them. I think I am recognized so much because a lot of what I said is true and they do not want to accept it. At the end of the day, I got over it. This is a totally different year, "Johnson said." I'm excited to play against a great team. When you play against a great team, you get the best out of you and them and that's what we need, even if it's preseason, so that in Week 1 (of the regular season) we will not be surprised by anything. " Eagles will probably play a quarter and a half on Thursday, according to Johnson, enough time to get reacquainted with his rival in the Super Bowl. "I'm ready. I've waited for this moment since the Super Bowl ended, so, the time has come, "Johnson said.
