Patriots linebacker Kyle Van Noy apparently is not fond of being compared to other players who once suited up for the team, even if those guys are among some of the best to have ever played their position.
Van Noy earned AFC Defensive Player of the Week honors, coming up huge in Sunday’s 16-10 win over the Bills in the epic divisional showdown.
As such, analysts and fans had begun comparing him to former Patriots safety Rodney Harrison, who was a stalwart on the defense. Van Noy, apparently, took issue with it, and his response was a bit bizarre.
Pro Football Talk’s Mike Florio, who works alongside Harrison at NBC, defended the former NFL great.
Van Noy fired back with a snarky response.
So, that kinda came out of nowhere.
