WALTHAM -- Any talk about stealing signals back in 2006, wasn't going to get the New England Patriots into any battle of words with Vikings coach Brad Childress today.
Yesterday Childress called the Patriots one of the best at stealing signs when the teams played back in 2006. There didn't seem much need for response from the Patriots.
"That's my first time hearing what Childress had to say," Patriots defensive lineman Vince Wilfork said today. "That don't bother me. We're going to do what we have to do. We play football on Sundays regardless of how you slice it. Sunday, the New England Patriots will be ready to play. Whatever people have to say about us deal with us on Sunday. As far as all that, I don't really care what people have to say about the New England Patriots."
