Lane Johnson is not a fan of the "Patriot Way," and he’s here to let you know why if you didn’t already know.

Johnson, the star right tackle who helped the Philadelphia Eagles defeat the New England Patriots in Super Bowl LII in February, called Tom Brady a “pretty boy” and New England an “fear-based organization” after the game.

After some reflection, Johnson sent out a few more jabs.
“Here’s what pissed me off. The Patriots, obviously, I respect their coach, I respect Bill (Belichick), I respect Tom Brady, but just because the way that they won the Super Bowls, the Patriot Way, is that how everybody else is supposed to do the same thing? No, it’s not. And that’s what I got mad at, the arrogance by them.

“There was obviously some stuff behind closed doors. 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.”
Johnson also bashed the Patriots’ defense.
“I saw a defense that wasn’t overly talented. It was all really about containing Tom Brady,” the All-Pro tackle said. “We had a hard time doing that – he had 505 yards. But that was really it, man. Going into the game, I’m not going to be shell-shocked by it. That was kind of our thing going in. I think we had the upper hand on that.”
Can you say rematch clause?
