After devoting a full season to Patriots criticism and their “demise”, ESPN First Take’s Max Kellerman finally had to face members of the 2018 Super Bowl champions.

Kellerman spent most of the 2018 picking against the Patriots and preaching the “decline” of quarterback Tom Brady.

On Thursday, linebacker Kyle Van Noy and running back Sony Michel appeared on the program to defend their team.

They also poked fun at Kellerman’s hot takes in the process.

Earlier this season, Van Noy was vocal about Kellerman’s takes, at one point saying he should “stick to boxing”.
