Patriots | Made change to defense

Tue, 20 Dec 2011 12:12:13 -0800

The New England Patriots, head coach Bill Belichick and assistant coach Matt Patricia changed their 3-4 defense around a bit during the Week 15 game against the Denver Broncos. "I think you can get into a lot of technical aspects of defense and strategy and all that, but we played plenty of four-man line, we played plenty of three-man line," Belichick said. "We used them both at different times for different reasons. In the end, it comes back to the players – beating blocks, making tackles, hitting the quarterback, covering the receivers. I think there's a lot more to that than there is to odd or even." The Pats set the edge with bigger players like DLs Vince Wilfork and Brandon Deaderick.

Patriots | Vince Wilfork against 18-game schedule

Tue, 01 Feb 2011 07:20:52 -0800

New England Patriots DL Vince Wilfork is opposed to the idea of an 18-game NFL season, according to Karen Guregian, of the Boston Herald. "It's going to do whatever the NFL wants to do, anyways. It's one of those things where you just have to sit and see what happens," Wilfork said with respect to a lockout. "But I can tell you one thing, 18 games don't make no sense. Eighteen games turns into 20 games because the two preseason games you have to play your veterans and your starters. So that's 20 games. If you look at it from that standpoint, it's a stupid thing. It's just too stupid to be adding games."
