Lane Johnson Says Eagles Players Have Fun Winning, Pats Players Have Fear
It’s been a full week since the Eagles won the Super Bowl over the New England Patriots, and they had a bunch of fun doing it, as any player should when playing a kid’s game for a living.
That’s not always the case for certain teams, like the Patriots organization, where players have to walk around on egg shells and in fear. At least, that’s the way Lane Johnson sees it.
The Philadelphia Eagles OT stated on Pardon My Take that the culture on the Eagles is one of a bunch of guys having a great time playing together, while the culture over in New England has players fearful and on edge 100% of the time.
“I just think that The Patriot Way is a fear-based organization,” Johnson said, via NESN. “Obviously, do they win? Hell yes, they win. They’ve won for a long time. Do I think people enjoy and can say, ‘I had a lot of fun playing there’? No, I don’t. That’s just the God’s honest truth. They’re successful, but when they go to interviews, they act like [expletive] robots. Hey, stop being a [expletive]head. We can be cordial for a little bit. You only get to do this job one time, so let’s have fun while we’re doing it. Not to be reckless, but I’d much rather have fun and win a Super Bowl than be miserable and win five Super Bowls. But hey, it is what it is.”
Eagles players and fans were certainly having a great time during and after the Super Bowl victory.
