While the “rematch” between the Patriots and Eagles doesn’t quite have the same meaning tomorrow, Lane Johnson is sticking to his fighting words against the Patriots and their fans.

As reported by ESPN’s Tim McManus, Lane is prepared for the backlash saying:

“Oh yeah. I hope so. I hope they raise hell,” Johnson said at the conclusion of training camp Tuesday. “They can cuss me, they can say whatever they want. At the end of the day, I’m not blocking them, I’m blocking guys on the edge, so it really doesn’t matter what they say.

“I know that I’m not going to be well-liked, this team is not going to be well-liked going there, so it’s going to basically bring out our best.”

Couple this with the billboard that has been placed in Foxborough to troll Patriots fans, I’m sure they’re anxiously awaiting our arrival.

Eat it, Boston.

Fly Eagles Fly.
