You wouldn't expect this rivalry to continue, but a hungry dog feuds for longer. 


After the Eagles' first Super Bowl victory in franchise history, left tackle Lane Johnson had some comments about the Patriots organization that made the post-championship firework show seem like a few bottle rockets shooting towards the sky. Some Pats fans may not agree or appreciate how he went about it, but the man had his adrenaline pumping after a memorable victory. 


Apparently, that feeling hasn't quite worn off just yet. 


Johnson called out New England once again, claiming he was tired of hearing how perfect the "Patriot Way" was. 

"There was obviously some stuff behind closed doors," Johnson said. "Their owner talking s--- to our owner. Bill talking s--- to our head coach [Doug Pederson] before the game. I'm not going to say it, but a lot of s--- kind built up to that, and I just got tired of hearing about it, man, to be honest."

We're all thrilled he clarified. We couldn't tell he didn't like the respect they were getting or how they run their operation based on the previous comments. 


From the second he found out the Eagles were facing the Patriots in the Super Bowl, Lane Johnson made it as clear as possible he didn't like the way the league bowed down to New England. People loved the way they did things and held them to a high standard that was deemed impossible to touch. That's why Johnson wanted to take "pretty boy Tom Brady" down.

​​We've heard most of this stuff from Johnson before, but what stood out was the apparent trash talk that didn't involve him. The left tackle claims Robert Kraft was talking down to Eagles owner Jeff Lurie before the game and Bill Belichick was doing the same towards Doug Pederson. 


That's a completely different story that seems to go against the whole "they're robots" comments Johnson made months ago, but you still can't blame him for getting fired up about it. 


You'd like to think this is the end, but we'll likely hear something from Johnson about this budding rivalry soon.
