Philadelphia Eagles’ Lane Johnson continues his warpath (kind of)
Philadelphia Eagles right tackle Lane Johnson is at it again.
Everyone may not be thrilled with the commentary that they’ve been hearing from Philadelphia Eagles right tackle Lane Johnson recently. Still, you have to tell the truth. Can we all admit that it makes for some good commentary? Just ask ESPN‘s Tedy Bruschi, the NFL Network‘s Willie McGinest or Colin Cowherd from FS1‘s The Herd. People may claim that they don’t want to hear this guy talk. If that’s true, then why can’t they seem to stop talking about what he’s saying?
You can go ahead and throw ITI in that group as well. Who knew this guy was so outspoken? Well, love him or hate him, he does give us something to talk about until real football starts again.
This time, you can thank Pro Football Focus for waking him up.
The big guy is at it again.
Less than a month after appearing on a Philadelphia radio outlet, 97.5 The Fanatic, where he lit up the airwaves to contest his ranking on NFL Network’s Top 100 (he was ranked number 95), it appears he’s at it again. This time, he’s got his eye on Pro Football Focus.
According to a report by Bleeding Green Nation’s Michael Kist, Johnson tweeted Sunday night to voice his displeasure over a recent rating he’d been given by PFF.
Here’s what he had to say:
"Got PFF grading professional OL (a Cris Collinsworth endorsed hype train) and we are supposed to take their opinion seriously when they put ribs in the oven… on brand to skip the process.. that’s all going to change very soon."
Here’s an unimportant opinion.
To be honest, after reading that, it’s hard to determine what he was trying to say. Here’s what we do know. Johnson thought better after stating whatever it was he was trying to say there and deleted said tweet about an hour later.
Johnson’s further endeared himself to most of the Eagles’ fan base by making dog masks popular. Then, he made some harsh comments about the way the New England Patriots do business. There’s also always something funny about hearing players call out the NFL Network.

While some may agree with his sentiments (speaking of which, he’s clearly the best right tackle in the league), others argue that he should keep his comments to himself and let his play do the talking.
That probably won’t happen. Truthfully, who cares if it doesn’t. If you’re a fan of the outspoken or a member of the media, this guy gets more entertaining by the day.
