Good news, New England Patriots fans: Julian Edelman was mic’d up again Sunday for the AFC Championship Game.
Edelman’s best line this week came when Pittsburgh Steelers cornerback Artie Burns told the Patriots receiver: “I’m here, baby. I’m here.”
“The fact that you have to talk about it means you’re not,” Edelman responded.
Once the Patriots had sealed the 36-17 win over the Steelers, Edelman went up to quarterback Tom Brady. Here was their exchange.
JE: “Are you happy? I’m not happy.”
TB: “I’m happy.”
JE: “I’ll be happy next week when we get the other one.”
TB: “I’m (expletive) happy.”
JE: “I know you’re happy. I’m a little happy, too.”
Edelman also passed along some advice from his father to fellow Patriots receiver Malcolm Mitchell: “When you’ve got them down, break their (expletive) neck.”
Even Edelman thought his father went a little far with that line.
