The 2017 season will likely go down as a forgettable one for New England Patriots wide receiver Julian Edelman, who missed the season recovering from ACL surgery while watching his team march to another Super Bowl appearance from the sidelines.

A week into the off season, there was some positive news for Edelman moving forward into 2018 when he was chosen for induction into the College of San Mateo Athletics Hall of Fame.

Edelman, who played his first year of college football at the school before transferring to Kent State University, credited the College as the place that “helped mold me into what I am today.”

In his one season as a freshman starting quarterback, Edelman passed for 1,312 yards and 14 touchdowns, while also rushing for a school-record 1,253 yards and 17 touchdowns.

As the New England Patriots continue the process of moving on from the 2017 season, linebacker Marquis Flowers took to his Twitter account Monday to try and clear the air with those criticizing himself and his team in the aftermath of Super Bowl LII.

Beginning with an article in the Boston Sports Journal by Greg Bedard that viewed Flowers Super Bowl performance as worse than the issue with Malcolm Butler’s benching, Flowers defended his head coaches decision making while also holding himself accountable for a bad game.

Secondly, Flowers responded to a quote from Philadelphia Eagles linebacker Lane Johnson who referred to the Patriots as a “fear based organization.”

When a fan pushed Flowers further on defending Belichick with a tweet that read “so you believe your teammate malcolm butler who you worked with all year the blood sweat and tears he didnt deserve to play???? did u tell him that marquis??” Flowers reiterated how those decisions were out of his control.

To conclude his series of tweets, Flowers shared what a full season under Belichick helped him with most while also calling out a few internet trolls that wanted to give him a hard time.

Flowers will head into the off season as a free agent, but judging by his defense and outpouring of emotion towards his time so far New England, he certainly learned a lot in just one full season.

Antonio Brown Jabs Brady Dropped Catch, Forget’s He’s Sitting Home

Not a whole lot went the Patriots way during Super Bowl LI, but unlike 15 other AFC teams, they still managed to claw their way to an eighth NFL title game appearance under head coach Bill Belichick.

One of those losing teams was the Pittsburgh Steelers, who went one and done in the postseason and will enter 2018 without a championship ring in the last nine seasons.

Despite their head coach proclaiming “we expect to be there” and players chirping about a rematch with the Patriots, it never came to fruition as Steelers were sent packing for the Pro Bowl by the Jaguars.

Which takes us to Monday, Over his Instagram account Steelers wide receiver Antonio Brown decided to poke a little fun at Tom Brady’s dropped reception and old teammate James Harrison.

So to recap, despite not having a win against the Patriots since 2011, Brown for whatever reason fired a slight shot when they were down and out, because the only place the Steelers can beat New England of late is behind a screen.
