    Wilfork has not lost anything

    Great News!!! According to Eagles center Vince Wilfork is as explosive as ever and is a wily veteran that uses every trick in the book


    Both Reiss and PFT reporting this.... Yahoooooo!


    No more running up the middle on the Pats....

    I hope this translates to the regular season games.  A healthy Wilfork and Tommy Kelly will greatly improve the interior line.

    Vince looks good. Seems lighter weight, and moving pretty freely. From what I have seen so far, he is still being wisely managed. I think we see the usual Vince, but not as much as we usually do, especially the first quarter of the season. Smart managing by the Pats

    Kelley looks good physically, but is being managed more so than Vince. Would not surprise me if Kelley is playing 10-15 snaps the first couple of weeks while he gets back to usual.

    From what I did see in the practices attended, Siligia looked really, really good. Dare I say a young Vince against the run (he does not have Vince's pass rush ability). Sill is really strong, and so hard to move. I thought he was challenging for major snaps at the DT position.

    I dont have a read on Easley obviously, but seeing him on the sidelines, I cant help but think he is really small to play DT in the NFL.

    I think given health all around, Vellano is #6 in a 5 man rotation.

    Easley will play as much de as dt.  Bb will move him all around.

    Not knowing much about Achilles injuries, is there a likelihood of them re-rupturing or are they pretty much golden after they heal.

    I tried to tell you that it's really him, not me. Note how angry he is for being Mr. Sky Is Falling with Wilfork's future as a player with this good news.

    I am shocked you were accurate and honest for once at the same time. Good on you.

    [/QUOTE]


    The pundits gave zero chance of Vince coming back.  Apparently a bad Achilles will re-rupture. In particular, one pundit pointed out that defensive tackles run an incredible amount of force through their Achilles tendons because they have to push off against double teams.  Other players can come back, but not defensive tackles.

    Obviously Vince is on the field, and he's not waiting for the regular season either.  He's out there playing zero technique now.  If I were an opponent in September I'd be game-planning for Wilfork. 

    As a concession to his Achilles injury he's down to 325 pounds, where he used to be north of 350. 

    My best guess is that he still has a chance of re-rupture at any time in the season, but the rehab coaches and doctors did a bang-up job on his ankle.

    Vince won't wear down opposing centers as much, being down to 325 and less of a forward-moving load.  Perhaps he won't be on the field 100% of the time this year because with his new svelte Gisele Bundchen look he'll wear down just a bit more per snap.  He's still the team's veteran with X thousands of snaps to his credit, so a number of running plays aren't going more than one or two yards.  If you're the opponent you still want to double team him, and even then you might not get that much yardage up the middle.  Kelly, Siliga and Hightower aren't exactly easy marks.

    Re: Wilfork has not lost anything

    I thought Vince looked pretty good in limited reps against Washington, which is great news. Vince is key, he is that one guy you have to have. I didn't think Kelly looked as good as Vince, but if he can come back healthy, that too would be huge. I thought Will Smith looked like a guy who could help at end with his size and strength. Easley is small, so it will be interesting to find if that can be hidden playing next to one of these big guys. I don't think Easley will be playing end, I think he is a totally different player out there, and I don't mean that in a good way...will he play there? Belichick will move him around, but I just don't think he will be any good there.

    The problem is OTHER people who respond to Rusty.  When someone reads THEIR posts, and those people have not snipped Rusty's quotes, then they can be seen.  However, it only takes a little discipline to ONLY read what is AFTER the last [/QUOTE] to never see anything that Rusty writes.  That, at least is what I do.

    Interesting.  A swim move is a one-technique.  We could be seeing an evolution from two-gap to one-gap coverage.  Wilfork can still swim through but, without his baby fat, perhaps he's not as good anchoring against the double team.  Easley can knife through like crazy. 

    We might be seeing a transition toward the Pats getting after the quarterback up the middle.  BB prefers to take away the space in front of the QB, where the QB can step into a throw.  Take away that room and the passer loses throwing velocity without that step, he has to throw with an odd motion, his passing lanes shrink, he has to throw rainbows over the defenders' outstretched fingertips and sometimes he can't see precisely where he's throwing.  Also, sometimes the big guys get home.

    I didn't.  He's referring to me saying that his wife is a mod.  That's it.

    I am also not baiting him at all. I absolutely refuse to watch him troll and ruin discussions with things like "Develin is expendable".
