Locker room look

FOXBOROUGH -- A large media contingent flooded into the Patriots locker room today (11:10-11:55 a.m.) for interviews with players. About 15 different television stations were present at the stadium, from ESPN to local New England-based outlets.
One aspect that stood out was that the players were dressing in full pads for today's practice. It is more common that late-season practices are held without pads. Full-pads practices are usually harder on players, especially later in the season due to the physical grind of having played a full season.
An 18-year veteran, linebacker Junior Seau agreed that it wasn't necessarily common to be in full pads at this time of year, but he endorsed the decision.
"It's well accepted," Seau said.
"Whatever it takes to get better," added running back Kevin Faulk.
Seau and Faulk were among a handful of players to draw large media crowds in the locker room. RB Laurence Maroney, S Rodney Harrison, DL Richard Seymour, WR Wes Welker, CB Ellis Hobbs and C Dan Koppen were a few others.
Harrison was asked how long he allowed himself to enjoy the team's accomplishment of a 16-0 regular season.
"I closed the book on that probably Tuesday morning," he said. "I enjoyed it Sunday, Monday and a little bit on Tuesday. After that, you call me, you get hung up on."
LOL, I'll make sure that I never call Rodney.
