    Steve Nelson talks a little Defense and Mosi Tatupu
    By: Steve Balestrieri

    This morning we were privileged to get Patriots team Hall of Famer Steve Nelson to spend some time with us.

    Nellie played stellar ILB for the Patriots for 14 seasons from 1974-1987 and was named to three Pro-Bowls. He was elected to the Patriots Hall of Fame in 1993. He still holds the Patriots record for tackles in one season with 207 and had the very Patriots-like number of 1776 tackles for his career. That averages out to 10.2 tackles per game for 14 seasons.

    I was fortunate enough two seasons ago to have Steve do a pre-game and post-game analysis with me for my Patriots blog on isportsweb.com. Needless to say, that was quite the learning experience as his knowledge of the game especially the defensive side is pretty vast.

    With that, he’s a very busy man these days, so I had to fire my questions quickly as he had places to go. So here is his take on some of the Patriots and NFL issues....

    Loved Steve. Played hard, played well, played with emotion.
    From the picture, I'm a bit concerned about his health...bad case of male pregnancy syndrome going on.

    Great to hear from Steve Nelson especially when he sounds upbeat and happy. I loved that linebacker corps of Nelson, McGrew, Tippett and Blackmon. A classic Patriot who made everyone around him a better player.
