By Paul KenyonA number of reasons have been cited for the improvement of the New England defense late in the season. Vince Wilfork offered his reasoning Thursday, at least as far as his defensive line is concerned.
The Pats co-captain spoke about how the line needed time to find its stride, both because the team changed scheme and because there were so many players fighting for jobs.
``We had a lot of defensive linemen. For me, I like that,'' Wilfork said. ``Throughout my career that was one area that we always had four or five guys going into a game. But during training camp we had a lot of bodies (more than a dozen), so wehad a lot of guys that had experience. We had a lot of guys that were young.''

Pepper Johnson, Howard Cross, Vince Wilfork and more talk about their rings
In Part 5 of a series, we take a unit-by-unit look at Sunday's game between the Patriots and Giants. New England has indomitable Vince Wilfork while the Giants have a bevy of top-notch pass rushers.
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.
