Live Friday AM: Matthew Judon is here 'to whup some ass'
Go Long traveled to Foxborough to sit down with the New England Patriots' maniac of a pass rusher. Meet the man preserving pure football.
There’s a very good chance you’ve been able to pick up on our distinct ethos at GoLongTD.com. Here, we harbor a deep appreciation for the purity of this sport.
Football is a violent game played by violent people. There will be blood. These are modern-day gladiators. So, that’s why I hit the I-90 for our next profile. Tomorrow morning, be on the lookout for a deep dive on the New England Patriots’ belligerent force of nature: game-wrecker Matthew Judon. He’s the new face of this team and his significance to the sport itself is profound. Judon did not hold back.
As the man eloquently puts, “You have to go out there every down — every play — and whup some ass.”
From Grand Valley State to Baltimore to New England, Judon takes everyone inside his mad world.
