Lane Johnson Says Eagles Players Have Fun Winning, Pats Players Have Fear

But you can never be too careful with the Super Bowl on the line. The Eagles, meanwhile, seemed more willing to play fast and loose.

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.

That last sentence is sure to be up for debate in certain Boston-area sports bars right now, but Johnson is really just making it abundantly clear that, for him, there's more to the way he measures success other than just racking up Super Bowls. "Obviously, do they win?" They've won for a long time. "I think when you look at a struggle in your life, just know that that's just an opportunity for your character to grow".


Johnson also criticized the Patriots' interactions with the media.

"I think there are still a lot of coaches out there that don't trust the Patriots, so sometimes they'll overthink it and do some fake plays in case anybody's watching", Jenkins said. "That's just the God's honest truth". Hey, stop being a (expletive) head. "You only get to do this job one time, so let's have fun while we're doing it", the offensive tackle continued.

"Just keep livin" is the advice actor Matthew McConaughey gave to Nick Foles as he congratulated the Philadelphia Eagles quarterback for the team's first Super Bowl win in a full-page ad in an Austin newspaper.
