Don’t tell Philadelphia Eagles offensive tackle Lane Johnson that Thursday’s matchup with the Patriots is just another preseason game.

Johnson, who’s become notorious this year with outspoken remarks and criticisms about the team he won his first ring against was back at it again on local Philadelphia radio Monday morning.

“I’m ready,” Johnson told KYW Philadelphia. “I’ve been waiting on this ever since the Super Bowl was over with. It’s time.”

Johnson has previously called the Patriots are a “fear-based organization” that is filled with “arrogance” and “no fun”.

The Patriots and Eagles don’t meet in the 2018 regular season for a Super Bowl rematch that counts but Johnson didn’t seem too concerned about his reception at Gillette Stadium regardless of the timing.

“They know who I am on film,” Johnson said. “They know who we are on film. We’ll see what’s going to happen.”

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.
