Lane Johnson accuses Bill Belichick, Robert Kraft of talking [expletive] about Eagles before Super Bowl LII

It's pretty clear by now the Eagles' Lane Johnson doesn't care much for the Patriots.

After calling them a "fear-based organization" with players who "act like f---ing robots" after the Super Bowl, now he's accusing Bill Belichick and Robert Kraft of trash-talking to Doug Pederson and Jeffrey Lurie before the game.

"Here's what pissed me off," Johnson said during a recent appearance on Steve Austin's podcast. "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 [of] built up to that, and I just got tired of hearing about it, man, to be honest."

Whatever Johnson is referring to with Belichick and Pederson seems a bit questionable considering Sound FX captured the two speaking before the game and it was the furthest thing from harsh.

The two teams will meet in Week 2 of the preseason with the chance of potentially having joint practices.
