Kyle Van Noy fully bought into the "Patriot Way," and he's a two-time Super Bowl champion as a result. The Pats linebacker had to send Colts tight end Eric Ebron a gentle reminder of that fact.
Ebron was recruiting free-agent safety Landon Collins to Indianapolis when Lions defensive back Quandre Diggs interrupted to recruit Collins to Detroit. Of course, Detroit is where ex-Patriots defensive coordinator Matt Patricia is now the head coach.
In his response to Diggs, Ebron took a shot at the "Patriot Way."

The "Patriot Way" more often than not has translated to success, though it's clear some players around the NFL still aren't fond of how Bill Belichick and Co. handle things over in Foxboro.
Nonetheless, Van Noy's response shows Pats players don't have a difficult time shutting down the anti-Patriot Way remarks.
