Patriots Shrug Off Ravens LB Brendon Ayanbadejo's Comments
The New England Patriots weren't even done with their victory over the Houston Texans when Baltimore Ravens linebacker Brendon Ayanbadejo started firing barbs at the Pats in advance of Sunday's AFC Championship Game, Mike Garafolo of USA Today reports.
"He wasted no time, huh?" Patriots tight end Michael Hoomanawanui said with a chuckle.
Nope. In a series of tweets Ayanbadejo questioned the fortitude of the Pats' hurry-up offense, threw in a Spygate reference, mentioned the 18-1 record of the 2007 spoiled by a loss to the New York Giants in Super Bowl XLII and took a shot at the team for cutting wide receiver Tiquan Underwood on the eve of the Super Bowl last year.
The Pats weren't biting, but they also didn't seem too affected by it.
"I can't speak for everybody but me personally I'm not on the social network, Facebook, none of that," cornerback Aqib Talib said. "So that's in one ear and out the other."
Said guard Logan Mankins, "It's always settled on Sundays."
Not on Twitter, huh?
"We've got other things to worry about, like who to block, how to run a route, what routes we're running," Hoomanawanui said, adding of Ayanbadejo's shot at the hurry-up offense: "Everyone's entitled to their opinion. We'll keep doing what's working for us and what's going to get us a victory."
