    I was listening to WEEI in the car earlier and just grinning ear to ear listening to Wilfork. He's candid, down-to-earth, funny, and manages to always say the right thing without ever sounded canned or scripted. It's not up in the audio vault at this point, but if/when WEEI posts it I recommend a listen just for his description of the team's character: how he never doubted for a minute that they would win, and looking down the bench he could see that all the other guys felt the same way, "and who wouldn't want to play for a team like that?"

    BTW, Dale & Holley also brought up the fact that they told Wilfork about Sean Taylor live on the air last week (something many criticized them for). They were apologetic, explained that they didn't realize what Vince did/didn't already know. Wilfork clearly didn't bear any grudge, his take was basically that "they were delivering news he needed to know" and that there's no good time for that kind of news anyway.

    I love vince too.

    it struck me as odd that they focused on ray lewis and the ravens grieving sean taylor last night, and said almost nothing about wilfork, given that they were close enough friends that he was interviewed on SC the day after it happened.

    The guys on espn raved about big Vinny too during commentary. Sounds like a classy, humble guy.

    I could see this at the game last night. Just when things looked darkest --- I think it was just before Sanders's interception --- I noticed Vince walking around the defense, bumping fists with Rodney and Assante. He was clearly optimistic.

    And yes, I had my #75 on.

    Did he talk about the run defense or the defense overall?

    I love listening to Vince "Barry White" Wilfork interviews. He's very honest and gets right to the point ... lots and lots of information. He does a great job of letting the fan see things from a players viewpoint.
