Julian Edelman slams Steve Young after Patriots' Super Bowl win

Steve Young was critical of the New England Patriots' week four loss against the Kanas City Chiefs. He wasn't the only one. The Patriots' embarrassing 41-14 loss on the road to the Chiefs showed their weaknesses for all to see and many believed it was the beginning of the end for quarterback Tom Brady.

Of course everybody was wrong. Yet again, the Patriots and Tom Brady were written off too soon. Of all the critical voices at the end of the September, NFL legend and former San Francisco 49ers star quarterback Steve Young's voice was arguably the loudest.

Young accused the Patriots of not giving Brady the best tools to win another championship. Young said the Pats - who were 2-2 at the time - were in transition and he explained that they had made the mistake of not stacking the team for Brady's remaining years in the NFL.

Young couldn't have been more wrong

However, as they say, the rest is history and the Patriots lifted their fourth Super Bowl title on Sunday after defeating Seattle Seahawks 28-24 in one of the most dramatic NFL games ever.

One of the star players was the diminutive star receiver that is Julian Edelman. The wideout has received criticism all of his life, but it seems that Young's criticism of the Pats not supporting Brady with a good offense got to Edelman somewhat. Safe to say, come Monday and blazing in the glory of a Super Bowl victory, Edelman was ready to torch Young with an epic comeback.

Edelman lets fire

“He’s just mad because he can’t be Joe Montana,” said Edelman, a native of Northern California. “I love Steve Young to death, but he’s the biggest hypocrite of all," Edelman told New York Post.

"He just keeps crapping on us. I was a Niners fan growing up. I loved Joe Montana to death — he was my childhood hero. Steve Young’s just mad because he couldn’t get more than one [ring].”

Burning your critics is one way to celebrate winning a Super Bowl that's for sure.
