During Sunday evening’s Patriots-Texans AFC Divisional playoff game – which was won by New England to set up a Ravens/Pats rematch in the AFC Champsionship game – Baltimore linebacker Brendon Ayanbadejo took to his twitter account to give some commentary on the game.

“B.A.” was critical of the Patriots’ “hurry up” offense, which often snaps the ball before the defense is lined up and ready for it, calling it a “gimmick.” Tom Brady & Co. were doing this with great success against Houston, and Ayanbadejo was clearly not a fan of the tactics.

He also gave New England a measure of credit, saying “their offense is good enough to be successful with out that.”

However, he also used the term “bitchassness” to sum up his feelings on the strategy.

This morning, Ayanbadejo’s tweets are getting some attention from national media outlets, and are likely going up as “bulletin board material” in the Patriots locker room.

Ayanbadejo issued the following apology on twitter just a few moments ago:

It seems likely that Brendon got pulled into John Harbaugh’s office this morning for all the wrong reasons, but there is no way to be sure (at least, until the media asks one or both of them about it later today).

I’m glad B.A. apologized, but I was definitely shocked last night when I was watching his tweets come out. The last thing Tom Brady needs is any added motivation.

Here’s the series of tweets that sparked the apology:

Sometimes, I respect BA's willingness to go out on a limb and sometimes I wish he'd just shut the hell up. In this case, it's the latter. Why would an offense intentionally wait for a defense to get set instead of making the most of an advantage? It's not NE's fault that Houston's D was sluggish between plays.

really? man listen you can come up with negative stories / facts but at the end of the day you still need to stop the new england patriots so until than ravens shut up and play we can care less what a "special teams" player says and those two run backs denver did makes his comments more laughable

I agree with B.A. Also the defense has been tought by Belechick to grab the ball from the receiver even after they are down and play is dead....has anyone noticed that? And I hated the Jets for dirty plays but not as much as Whiney Brady and dirty Belechick! My Ravens do some things I dont agree with but nothing like that. Its called respect and at least Ravens have respect for other teams.

Coming from an Oregon Duck fan, welcome to the new era of hurry-up, BA. You might note it's happening with a lot of teams, even the Ravens...

I thought it was stupid, only because of the timing, but it isn't like he said anything untrue. They did/do cheat, that hurry up snap stuff is bush league, and Tom Brady can eat a dick (I might have added that last part).
