There’s only two positions on the football field Patriots DT Vince Wilfork wouldn’t play - running back and center

Wilfork: Defense needed time to implement new system

By Paul KenyonA number of reasons have been cited for the improvement of the New England defense late in the season.

Athletic Wilfork leads Patriots defensive line

Give Vince Wilfork a basketball and he can stuff it. Send him to the weight room and he'll lift the heaviest dumbbells. Put him in the Super Bowl and he'll try to overpower blockers on his way to the NFL championship. The 325-pound tackle for the New England Patriots is the passionate leader of their defense - and a very good athlete for his size. The most athletic thing...

Patriots DT Vince Wilfork and Giants RB Brandon Jacobs weigh what it’s like hitting each other

Neither is small. Patriots DT Vince Wilfork is 6-foot-2, 325(ish) pounds. And Giants RB Brandon Jacobs is 6-foot-4, 264-pounds.  And what is also large is their respect for one another. It all led to some comical comments this week between the two large fellas. First, Wilfork was ranting about how under-appreciated the Giants backfield is, starting with Ahmad Bradshaw, of whom he...

Giants' Baas fires back at Patriots' Wilfork

INDIANAPOLIS -- Giants center David Baas has heard quite enough about Vince Wilfork and the Patriots’ defensive line, thank you very much.

Patriots respond to trash talk like this: “We’ll see who does the talking this weekend”

The Giants are talking. A ton. From claims of planned parades and speaking under the assumption that they will simply win Super Bowl XLVI, talk is apparently no longer cheap. Meanwhile, the Patriots are, well, being themselves. Not saying much. Just going about their business. But aren’t they annoyed? Turns out, not so much. Not before the game, anyway. “I don’t care about...
