New England Patriots star slot receiver Julian Edelman doesn't much like the suggestion of his team going 19-0.
According to #11, that's way too much, way too fast.
“My focus is more on trying to get ready for the season, trying to learn your teammates, form your identity. (The 19-0 talk is) stupid. That’s it,” Edelman told the Boston Herald.
Jules just wants to get ready for the season. "No days off!" "No days off!"
“You can’t worry about what other people say, honestly,” Edelman said. “I mean, there’s no script to this thing. There’s no camera. This isn’t Hollywood. This is real life. When you go out and play in the National Football League, it’s one of those things where it’s even stupid to think about that. It’s never been done. You don’t really want to talk about it.
Edelman played a central role in the Patriots' 34-28 Super Bowl LI victory over the Atlanta Falcons in February, including this incredible catch. He caught five footballs for 87 yards.
2016 was the second time that Edelman, now entering his ninth NFL season, had gone over 1,000 yards. And that was without quarterback Tom Brady for a quarter of the season. Edelman hauled in 98 balls for 1,106 yards. The last time he hit the 1,000-yard mark was in 2013.
