So I saw an article at the Herald today (by Karen G) in which Vince talks about the D. Some choice quotes: Vince Wilfork & Co. vow defense will stiffen - BostonHerald.com Excerpts: I like this attitude. Obviously, attitude isn't enough, but I wonder if Sunday will be the beginning of a new vibe on defense? My question to those of you who are long time fans with heads full of football memories: can a defense improve quickly, without "upgrades", through scheming, studying and force of will? I think we've seen it in our offense this year. The thing is, our D has ONE game to show progress. They might be able to be soft against Oakland or Seattle (maybe) but this Sunday they have to show something, some kind of spark. Is there precedent or is it simply the rare stuff of Disney movies I'm hoping for?
