A few Patriots players are going through the car wash at ESPN Thursday, and one of those players is Kyle Van Noy.

This gave him a chance to confront Max Kellerman when it comes to his thoughts on Tom Brady and the Patriots.

(Van Noy has gone at Kellerman before, but on Twitter and in radio appearances.)

At the Patriots parade, Elandon Roberts held up a sign that called Kellerman the "Haterade Player of the Year," but he thought it was Van Noy.

"First of all, I didn't have that sign," Van Noy said. "Because if I had that sign, I probably would have thrown it in the trash, because that's giving (Kellerman) too much credit. There's other people that probably deserve it more. I mean, you've got Rob Parker that should be moving to Mexico right now because he said we couldn't beat the Chiefs. We just enjoy everybody that doubted us, and thank you Max."

Kellerman has been on record saying Patrick Mahomes outplayed Brady in the AFC title game.

"You can sit here and argue with me all you want," Van Noy said. "At the end of the day, he's the GOAT, we won another Super Bowl, and just the look (on your face) and your smile says it all."

Added Van Noy: "I'll take his wet noodle arm any day. He's good at what he does. He is an excellent communicator, he's excellent at what he does, he gets everybody orchestrated and runs the offense to the best of his ability with Josh McDaniels."

It doesn't appear Kellerman's bashing of the Patriots will stop, and Van Noy left with a closing shot.

"Enjoy another year of talking about Tom again," he said. "... You don't even deserve that hater award."
