Ellen Shaves Off Super Bowl MVP Julian Edelman's Beard


The palpable disdain from New Orleans over the Super Bowl was more acute than any corresponding joy experienced in New England or the rest of America over one of the worst championship games in National Football League history.

Edelman snagged 10 catches for a game-high 141 yards in the 13-3 victory on Sunday in Atlanta.

Most Vegas oddsmakers have the Patriots listed with the best odds at winning Super Bowl 54, though some give the Kansas City Chiefs, Los Angeles Rams, or New Orleans Saints slightly better odds. "Unit the season is done.' So I put my razor in the drawer", Edelman said.

Beard shaving kicks off at the 8-minute mark.

In exchange for a $10,000 check to the Boys & Girls Club of Boston, Ellen was given the honor of shearing Edelman before a live studio audience.

Saints fans went to great lengths to avoid the game in dissent of the controversial NFC championship that saw a blown call play a big impact on the Los Angeles Rams advancing to the Super Bowl.

By the time the playoffs roll around, Edelman's beard is so thick it's a wonder he's still able to buckle his chin strap. The 32 year old wide receiver joined the Patriots in the seventh round of the 2009 NFL Draft.
