On Sunday night while the Patriots were trampling the Texans at Gillette Stadium, Brendon Ayanbadejo was sitting at home stewing while watching New England’s no huddle offense.
That’s when the Ravens’ special teamer took to Twitter to air his grievances with the Patriots’ hurry-up ways. Unfortunately, he likely did more harm than good for Baltimore by pointing out what he thought was cheating by New England.
Former Patriots linebacker Matt Chatham thinks Ayanbadejo’s critical comments will get New England fired up, and the 36-year-old three-time Pro Bowler could find himself targeted while running down the field in kickoff coverage. WEEI’s Rob Bradford thinks Ayanbadejo’s comments were mostly harmless and that they were successful for one reason — in getting his name in the headlines.
Watch the video above to hear Chatham and Bradford debate whether Ayanbadejo should have blasted the Patriots on social media. The two also take sides on whether Tom Brady is the key to the Patriots’ success against the Ravens.
