Former LB Bruschi Responds To Max Kellerman’s Patriots TakesRobert Deutsch - USA TODAY Sports

On ESPN’s First Take program Thursday, former Patriots linebacker Tedy Bruschi became the latest player to fire back at Max Kellerman’s takes on the Patriots and Tom Brady’s demise.

For nearly two years, Kellerman has stood by feelings that Brady will ultimately fall of a “cliff” production wise.

Throughout the 2018 season, Kellerman and a variety of other media outlets didn’t give the Patriots much of a shot to compete for a Super Bowl.

Despite it all, the Patriots find themselves back in the AFC Championship game for the eighth consecutive season.

First Take had Bruschi come on to defend his former quarterback and he didn’t disappoint, he went straight at Kellerman.

Bruschi’s comments continued a trend of Patriots not afraid to shy away from their feelings of disrespect by the media.

On Instagram Wednesday, Julian Edelman shared a hype video entitled “Bet Against Us” and later that day, linebacker Kyle Van Noy also called out Kellerman for his Patriots opinions.

Speaking with 985 The Sports Hub’s Zolak and Bertrand, Van Noy said, “Maybe since people say we need to stick to football, he should stick to his boxing commentating.”

Ouch.

At any rate, after 16 years of “ignoring the noise” its clear the Patriots have had enough staying silent, and they’ll look to reach their third Super Bowl in a row with a win Sunday night in Kansas City despite what everyone else thinks.

It remains New England vs Everybody.
