(CBS) In a series of interesting tweets Tuesday night, Jets receiver Brandon Marshall didn’t hold much back.
Marshall declared that the Jets would go 16-0 next season and he would score 25 touchdowns, that Ryan Fitzpatrick is the best quarterback he’s played with and that he will retire after New York wins the Super Bowl next season.READ MORE: Shots Fired At Police In North Austin
Tweets like these aren’t necessarily anything new for Marshall, who once invited a fan to fight him through Twitter in a boxing match that would’ve raised awareness for bullying. But there were two other interesting tweets that stood out from Tuesday.READ MORE: Ed's Driveway: Ford Mustang Mach-E
When asked about Patriots coach Bill Belichick, Marshall simply responded: “I own him.”
Marshall did have eight catches for 115 yards and two touchdowns in a Week 16 win over New England, but he’s 3-7 in his career against Belichick’s teams, with 52 catches on a total of 93 targets. Among those seven losses to the Patriots is a 51-23 loss with the Bears in 2014.MORE NEWS: Chicago Weather: Colder And Blustery Sunday Night
