Lane Johnson wants to play the Patriots again, probably doesn't realize this game is meaningless

Bill Streicher/USA TODAY Sports

Lane Johnson's Philadelphia Eagles beat the Patriots in Super Bowl LII and all he wants to do is talk about the team he beat rather than celebrate his team's title, which is fine if you're him I guess.

The two teams will meet this Thursday night in Foxboro in a poor man's rematch of that game, and Johnson sounds really fired up about it.


"I'm ready," Johnson said, via KYW Newsradio. "I've been waiting on this ever since the Super Bowl was over with. It's time."

....time for what, exactly? Revenge? Time to make up more dumb ass stories? Dude, YOU WON THE GAME. What the hell are you after here? The sad thing is I don't think Johnson is trying to troll anyone. I think he's this dumb. Even some Eagles fans I know personally can't stand him.

But sure, Lane, have fun playing a team in a meaningless preseason game where probably more than half of the players who matter won't play. And if they do, it won't be for very long.

Is this a side effect of taking steroids?
