The Patriots' have been creating plenty of buzz during their bye-week. The mic-ed-up Bill Belichick and Tom Brady dissing the mini-Red Sox burned up the interwebs.

Fans across New England this week were recovering from a World Series title, getting back into the early stages of the Bruins' season, the Celtics' going all out "Riggin' for Wiggins" and the Patriots' 55-31 beatdown of the Steelers

With that as a backdrop, Patriots all-everything Julian Edelman got connected with thousands of fans on reddit via an "AMA" - "Ask Me Anything" - and trolled with the best of them.

When one redditor asked: "Do you prefer crossing patterns or returning punts? And why?
What horror movie did you end up watching on Halloween?"

Edelman digitally deadpanned through his inner Gronk: "Edelman say: any time ball in hand[.] Edelman watch: 'Hocus Pocus.'"

He was there to help, as well as inform:


When asked: "Yo soy fiesta?" he simply replied "si."

He gave us a hint of his future plans, as well:

Come on, who doesn't like pie?

The AMA drew more than 2,400 comments and generated plenty of reddit karma that Edelman can only hope translates back on the field when the Patriots return to action a week from Monday at Carolina. Edelman agreed with the assessment that he's a "a scrappy gym rat" and discussed his love of hamburgers and absence of comfort food during the season.

Among the other insights:

Favorite Hall and Oates song: "Did we just become best friends? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X_I4wtNPv5w

Favorite nickname: "Squirrel because one time on the sideline i was yelling don't let me get squirrely out there."

Favorite words of motivation: "Screw what other people think or say, if you believe in what you can do and work hard at it, there's an endless amount of possibilities."

Favorite NBA team: "Like seeing the Celts do well but at heart...go Warriors."

Favorite penguin: "I'm normally an Emperor penguin guy but lately I've been partial to the Chinstrap penguin."

Flying Elvis or Pat Patriot? "PP"

Is Vince Wilfork a scary guy in person? "He's a great guy but if i was on the other side i'd be terrified."
