Ravens linebacker (but, in all honesty, most special teamer) Brendon Ayanbadejo couldn’t even wait for the Patriots to finish their smackdown of the Texans before unleashing some trash talk in preparation of Sunday’s upcoming AFC Championship. Ayanbadejo took to Twitter during the Pats-Texans games to give his wonderful thoughts on the Patriots “gimmick” offense: New England does some suspect stuff on offense. Can’t really respect it. Comparable to a cheap shot b4 a fight — Brendon Ayanbadejo (@brendon310) January 13, 2013 Are you watching the game pats vs texans? If so you see the hurry snap offense catch em b4 they set up. It’s a gimmick. — Brendon Ayanbadejo (@brendon310) January 13, 2013 Of course, this hurry-up offense “gimmick” is actually a well-planned out strategy that has been used in NFL gameplans for decades. But, you know, since the Patriots have been doing it better than anyone else for over 10 years it must be a gimmick. Through that thought process, the game of football is also a gimmick. And because he couldn’t think up any other preposterous criticism, he went back to the dried up well that Patriot haters love to visit: You know the same organization that did spygate and cut a guy the day b4 the Super Bowl — Brendon Ayanbadejo (@brendon310) January 13, 2013 18-1 — Brendon Ayanbadejo (@brendon310) January 13, 2013 Relevant. Thanks for the bulletin board material Brendon, but not sure they needed it. See you on Sunday. UPDATE: Ayanbadejo took to Twitter again Monday morning, this time apologizing for his comments: I made selfish comments on twitter last night that reflected poorly upon myself, my teammates, and the organization. For that I apologize. — Brendon Ayanbadejo (@brendon310) January 14, 2013
