Max Kellerman Getting Destroyed For What He Said On ESPN

ESPN First Take co-host Max Kellerman is getting crushed for what he's said about New England Patriots' quarterback Tom Brady.

Kellerman has been talking a lot about how Brady and the Patriots are going to fall "off a cliff" this postseason.

The ESPN analyst is calling for the Chiefs to beat the Patriots this weekend.

Former Patriots' star Teddy Bruschi, a current ESPN analyst, had a message for Kellerman this morning.

“I don’t want to tell Max to stick to boxing or anything like that because you have a job to do Max, and I understand you have to talk about what you see," he said. "I just think you’re struggling at your job a little bit.”

Kellerman replied:

“I am not struggling at my job, the Patriots are talking about me.”

To Kellerman's credit, the Patriots have been talking about him.

New England linebacker Kyle Van Noy had a message for Kellerman on Wednesday.

"Well maybe, because everybody says we need to stick to football, he needs to stick to his boxing or whatever he does, his commentating," he said on 98.5 The Sports Hub's "Zolak & Bertrand."

The Patriots seem to be embracing this "us against the world mentality," though. New England, despite being a favorite in nearly 70 straight games, are an underdog this weekend, though it's just a three-point spread.

New England and Kansas City are set to kick off at 6:40 p.m. E.T. on Sunday.
