Julian Edelman Sends Bold Message To Those Hoping Patriots’ Glory Days Are Over

The New England Patriots won the sixth Super Bowl in the Brady-Belichick era, and they did that under the pressure imposed by their haters. Julian Edelman heard all the comments about the Patriots’ glory days, and he disagrees with those who predict the end of the dynasty.

Patriots have a lot more to offer, and Edelman knows that. He talked to NBC’s Peter King. “We still got meat on the bone,” Edelman said to those who predict the end of New England’s glory days. “I’m ready. I wanna get started. I wanna get started!”

The receiver had 10 catches for 141 yards and was named the Super Bowl MVP. He made several public appearances, including the one at The Ellen Degeneres Show. Edelman attended the Grammys’ and presented an award along with his teammate Devin McCourty.

But, he is more than ready to play again.

“Ultimately,” Edelman said, “I can’t wait to jump back on the horse.”

He likes his teammates and the way things work in Foxboro.

“I think they grade people differently, honestly,” Edelman said of his team. “They don’t want distractions. They want guys that are versatile. They want mentally tough football players. That’s what I’ve seen through my career being there. They want a smart, physical, tough football player. If you don’t have that, you’re probably not gonna be there. So I’ve been fortunate to have a bunch of teammates—pretty much all the teammates I’ve had have been pretty good guys. You’ve got these young kids out here that have to learn, but you learn from the guys above you. I learned from the Kevin Faulks. I learned from the Toms, the Wes Welkers, the guys that worked hard that were there that were playing at a high level consistently. If you don’t, they usually get rid of you.”
