Lane Johnson says he hasn’t read all his New England hate mail yet

Eagles offensive tackle Lane Johnson raised plenty of eyebrows in New England when he said he was happier winning one Super Bowl in a fun atmosphere in Philadelphia than he would have been with the five-time champion Patriots, where Johnson says everyone lives in fear. Patriots fans were not amused.

Johnson said today on Pardon My Take that the hate mail has poured in from New England, enough that he hasn’t had time to read it all yet.

“I just pissed in everybody’s Cheerios,” Johnson said, via NESN. “And everybody in Boston — hey, I’ve got hate mail I still haven’t read. I’m looking forward to reading it.”

Johnson reiterated his belief that it’s better to be on a team he can enjoy playing for, and that just because the Patriots have been successful, that doesn’t mean their approach is the right approach for everyone.

“I think a lot of guys just want to be happy playing football,” he said. “The Patriots obviously won five Super Bowls, so it’s the Patriot Way to win the Super Bowl. Does that mean that everybody has to act the same way? Do the same thing? Is that necessarily the guidelines to win the Super Bowl?”

What Johnson thinks the Eagles have shown is that there’s more than one way to win the Super Bowl. And Johnson thinks the Eagles’ way is more fun.

  1. Do NFL players take PEDs for fun? I thought it was the fear of being replaced when you get injured. Anyway, the Pats really seem to be in Lane’s head. To quote Coach Lombardi, “Fat, roided and stupid is now way to go through life son”.

  2. Oh, God.. please post some of the best ones, Lane. Fans actually sending written hate mail to a guy for beating their team in the Super Bowl.. priceless. He should pay to have a bunch of therapy dogs sent to Foxboro.

  3. “Patriot clowns are the biggest sissy crybabies on the planet. ”

    Funny because people like you go on every single Pats thread and cry like a 3 year old who just dropped their ice cream cone in the sand.

    I realize your childlike minds can’t understand much about life so all I can do is laugh at you

  4. “What Johnson thinks the Eagles have shown is that there’s more than one way to win the Super Bowl.”

    Plenty of teams have shown there’s more than one way to win a Super Bowl. Only one team has found a way to win 5 in the salary cap era. And the internet tough guys that would get their lunch money taken away by a Boston Girl Scout hate them for it, to the point where a twice suspended roid boy is their new hero.

    He can’t stop talking about the patriots. They never talk about him

    Unless you don’t have a TV, read newspapers, or internet you know that is not true.

  6. Lane Johnson is just like Eagles fans…have some success and can’t shut up…living in Philly I have a lot of freinds that are Eagles fans,even they understand why a lot of people don’t like most Eagles fans…they are obnoxious…at least now I don’t have to hear grown men cry about not having a parade…

  7. .
    The Patriots lose more big games than any other team. Unlike some teams who crack the glass ceiling once every 50 years, New England is in the playoffs each and every year. Whenever you’re in the playoffs, you’re facing the iron and sometimes you will lose.

    The difference between the Patriots and most other teams is that they know they’ll be back in the hunt next year while the others, who gallantly predict they will reel off 5-6 Super Bowl consecutive victories, will return to their normal 7-9 selves.

    This just in, Kraft no longer owns the Patriots…Nick Foles does.

    —————-
    So Foles bought the Patriots from Eli Manning?

  9. Lane the Truth God! Telling it like it is! Best Tackle in football, shut down Von Miller, Khalil Mack, Joey Bosa, Demarcus Lawrence, Adam Kerrigan and ended the Dynasty. Hopefully he’ll have a reality show soon!

    Wow, Based on the feedback here, Johnson definitely struck a nerve…
    ————————-
    Based on all the incessant feedback from trolls who bombard every Pats thread with their salty and ignorant hate of NE, we can rest assured the dynasty is alive and well – and will last a lot longer than Lane who is nowadays one more failed roid test from an indefinite ban.

  11. I don’t condone talking about other teams negatively, but this is funny because of how riled up the NE fans are. And their response is that “the pats are in Lane’s head.” Don’t you mean the other way around? Like him or not, he stuck it to your team in the Super Bowl.

    Pats refer to Johnson as “the quickest Lane to the QB”.

    ———–

    Right, how many sacks on Foles in the SB? Oh, wait, that was Brady that was strip sacked. The play that started tucking the game away for the Eagles.

  14. I love the NE fans talking roids when they have deflate-gate and spy-gate hanging over their tarnish SB wins. Five * wins, vs one clean win. I’ll take a clean victory over the salty and tainted NE products.

  15. Tb12greatest, and the patriots lost to a team with 1 more Superbowl than the Cleveland browns hahaha wow that is pathetic isn’t it crybaby

  16. You’re naïve or not bright if you think your team doesn’t have 75% of their players on PED’s. Pats likely to do it systematically. Incidentally, Eagles>Patriots

  17. Sometimes players just dont know when to shut up. If I missed 14 games due to PED’s I think I would rather be seen and not heard. Stay clean or you will become the leagues biggest idiot.

  18. Don’t stress Pats fans! From western PA and even most of Our own state hates philly and realizes it’s an embarrassment. Keep hoping Deleware or Jersey will take it but, they don’t want it either. Most obnoxious fan base in sports which is strange coz they very rarely win anything and when they do it’s generally one and done then back to obscurity..as this one will be Steelers = 6 Dallas, San Fran, pats = 5 GB, Giants = 4 philly you got one so until you can hang a few more banners like the big boys..hush up

  19. The Seahawks were fun…so were the Saints…and STL Rams. Favre and Rodgers had fun too up in Green Bay. The Bucs and the Bears all had awesome characters and good times. All the serious teams the past 30 years have multiple rings. Might be something to it.

  20. patriot fans are so sour, their team couldnt find a way to cheat this time, the blueprint they acquired from the walk through the eagles had was fake. Bash lane all you want, at the end of the day this eagles team still defeated you without Peters, Sproles, Hicks, Wentz… and they did it thoroughly. Were these guys this upset with Eli spanked them?

  21. 2018 nfl champions!!!!! F em Lane!

    Just like the olympics, even if Russia and China won more golds u would still rather be on team USA even if u won a few less….

  22. Eagles didn’t win that. The Patriots lost it. Never have I seen such sabotage to ensure a loss. Brady played valiantly but the defense was deliberately hobbled with Butler standing on the sidelines. Maybe Goodell told Kraft to pull the rug out because ratings are tanking and fans have Patriot fatigue.

  23. Lol I think Lane Johnson has a New England Patriot Complex. Lane really wants to get to the Super Bowl every year just like the Patriots. A few discontented Patriots does not make an unhappy team. The Patriots lost a close battle with a bad defense. The Patriot’s will be HAPPY to beat the Eagles in the next Super Bowl with an improved defense!

  24. Lane Johnson is right.
    A lot of teams have won one superbowl.
    Fine
    Have a nice day
    They played a great game and benefited from the single worst coaching decision in Pats history.
    They deserved it
    That’s one

  25. But how would he know? He’s only played for one team. Who did he speak to, Chris Long? An unhappy role player on last year’s champ? Not hatin’, Lane. But my advice would be to enjoy YOUR victory and not worry about the Patriots.

    Man, the Pats take up so much real estate in everybody’s head…

    How would he know how much fun the Patriots are having? Gronkowski always looks like he’s having fun.

    Gronk is arguably the best tightend of all time he can do whatever he wants on and off the field do you think Bill wpuild put up with those shenanigans from the backup tightend

  27. If you take time to write hate mail to someone over comments that are an opinion, then you lead a sad life, and are thin skinned.

    He only owns Brady whom he outplayed. I’m certain we would have beaten the Eagles with Garoppolo.

    Brady played the Eagles defense, not Foles, and the Patriots never had to punt once while Brady threw for 500 yards. I’d at least say….not too bad? Maybe—juuuust maybe—-it was a “defense” issue. Hmmmm?

    It’s not debatable that Brady is one of the best, if not the best QB of all time, and is the current MVP. Literally not debatable.

    You’re not certain about Garoppolo, you’re not a Patriots fan, and everyone knows it. Since you currently fool no one, maybe it’s time to switch to another pretend name.

    =====================================

    Imagine if Lane Johnson received the amount of hate mail that Brady gets. Johnson would be in therapy for the rest of life.

  31. First thing about being a Champion…always act like you have been there before. Even if you haven’t.

    Second thing about being a champion….always act like you expect to be one again. Even if you don’t.

  32. I actually thought Belichick and the Patriots were uncharacteristically loose during Super Bowl week, and it concerned me. I have no idea how this guy, seeking his 15 minutes of fame,and could know very much about what goes on in a franchise he’s never worked for. I do know that he is a chronic violator of the rules, and uses chemical supplements to obtain an unfair advantage over his opponents. As such, he’s not a man I would look to for wisdom.

  33. Lol some of you guys make me laugh. I’m not gonna predict a repeat championship, but all the one-and-done comments are funny. They haven’t even had the draft yet and all you miserable haters have nothing else to say. Think about it. . . .eagles have all starters under contreact for another year except lb bradham, whom I’m hoping gets a new contract. They’ll also have peters,sproles,hicks, maragos and wentz back. Plus CB Sidney Jones who was a projected top 10 pick and also the 2018 draft class. There’s no way this team should fall off next year. It’s the off-season but all you sad little trolls still feel the need to cry about some other teams accomplishments.

  34. We all have opinions; we’re all fans. But remember these facts: Patriots found to have systematically cheated for many years, the team lost draft pick and coach fined 500k; QB found to have ordered footballs deflated, fined and made to sit out games. That is the main reason why that franchise is despised. It’s not because they have won five super bowls (see Steelers and Cowboys), it’s because they cheated and therefore no one can say how they would have done playing fair. Goes back to what we were all taught in grade school. It’s really that simple

  35. “The quarterback found to have ordered footballs deflated “??? That’s funny since the NFL admitted in Federal Court they had NO EVIDENCE!! It goes back to what we all were taught in 7th grade( not grade school), cold weather causes footballs to lose pressure!!! It’s really that simple!!!

  36. I’m a Patriots fan and I actually like this guy. 🙂

    Nothing better in sports than a good foil or a guy you really want to see your team beat. He can’t be a true rival cause the Eagles don’t play the Pats that often but this is the next best thing.

    🙂

    I’m sure there still tons of hate mail from Pats fans to lane. Their blueprint for cheating just failed and there still trying to figure what happen.

    —-
    If the Patriots wanted advice on cheating we wouldn’t talk to the Eagles we’d go down the Penn Turnpike and talk to the team that got curb stomped by Blake Bortles our of the playoffs. 🙂 they are experts in that field!

  39. ““I just pissed in everybody’s Cheerios,” Johnson said, ”

    In a related story, Cheerios is facing a 10 game suspension for violating the NFL’s policy for performance enhancing drugs.

  40. Once again Pats fans prove themselves to be the worst fan base in all of sport. I’m willing to bet that more than a few thinskinned snowflakes on PFT fired off an angry email to Lane who DARED to insult their messiah

  41. In related news, Tom Brady routinely throws away his phone every three months and the assistant on the patriots who is nicknamed “the deflator” because he tried to lose weight. #bornatnightjustnotlastnight

    The Eagles have one more super bowl than the Cleveland Browns.

    ——————
    One more than the Patriots do this year, too.

  43. Fastest Lane to the QB? How many sacks did Lane give up? Same number of times Brady congratulated the QB who beat his team in the SB.

    Aaahahaha. Nicely done.

  45. Glad Lane had fun last season… But that can change in an eye blink. Professional sports are pretty brutal physically, mentally and emotionally.

    Is it still fun when your best friend on the team gets cut? When you have to play through a separated shoulder or on a gimpy knee? What about when the organization is squeezing you to take a massive pay cut after years of playing under valued because you fell in love with the team and team mates?

    Can bandy about a subjective term like “fun” all you want, but there’s nothing subjective about the bottom line. It’s a cold hearted profession…

  46. How many teams have gone from worst to first in their division and maintained that success?Win your division two years in a row before you start talking about another superbowl.Unless you think you got another “dream team”.

  47. Something tells me when the Eagles miss the playoffs next year Johnson will be strangely silent, but I’m sure he will have had “fun”.

  48. The Pat fan salt is so thick in this topic it literally tastes bitter just reading it.

    Eat your humble pie Pat fan and learn to take losing gracefully.

  49. I love the Pats fan calling it his “15 minutes”…

    The guy is a top 3 RT in the game. Very good argument to be made for the best RT in the game. First team All Pro this season. Hes famous for more than just making Patsies cry lol

  50. The Eagles fans/players have quickly become the most annoying…insufferable football franchise in the NFL. Why can’t you win with grace? The fans tear the town apart..when they win. Do they sacrifice their first born when they lose? The players mock other teams….and talk down on other teams. Why not keep your mouth shut…and act like you have been there before. Win with class. Apparently not the way in Philly.

    Poor Patriots’ fans. They got their feelings hurt. Who cares?

    ————-

    Nobody’s feelings are hurt. The Patriots have 5 superbowl rings…and like 8 or more appearances in the Superbowl….vs. the Eagles have been irreverent for the past 60 years…..except for this year. You have one good year…and you talk like you have been doing it forever.

    The main thing is Lane Johnson is talking about a locker room/team that he has no idea how they actually operate. The guy looks like a classless moron saying stuff like this.
