Julian Edelman and Rob Ninkovich have been sporting some impressive facial hair, which has begged the question, is it or is not a playoff beard?
“Call it a seasonal beard – full season,” Ninko told reporters last week, admitting he hasn’t shaved since July.
He doesn’t think Jules can say the same though.
“It’s not a full effort,” he joked. “He’s taken too many pretty-boy pictures throughout the year for him to rock the full beard all year.”
JE11 weighed in on WEEI’s “Ordway, Merloni and Fauria Show” on Monday.
“Do you grow the beard towards the end of the season and the post-season because you think it gives you magical powers, or do you think you’re a hockey player?” the guys asked.
“I just forgot to shave,” he told them. “I haven’t looked in the mirror in a while and then all of a sudden I look in the mirror and I’ve got a beard.”
