Wilfork on D&H: 'We kept our poise'

Patriots defensive lineman Vince Wilfork joined the Dale & Holley show Monday for his weekly update on the team. Wilfork was pleased with Sunday's win over the Bills and the defense's focus on fixing its problems. "It's a positive step," he said. "I'm not saying everything's perfect, but it's a positive step. We have to keep building on it. As long as we keep doing that, and being aware of the situations, how a team wants to play us and wants to attack us when certain situations occur, we'll be in good shape. We'll be in good shape. But I'm very proud of the team, how we rallied and we kept our poise. We stayed even keel."

 

Wilfork said the team prepared well for Buffalo and that got the Patriots off on the right foot. "Everybody knew what it was about this week," he said. "It was about us coming out and executing, being aware of situations, and I think we were so confident because we knew that. In...

Meriweather: 'We stepped up' in clutch

Patriots defensive back Brandon Meriweather joined the Dale & Holley show Monday morning for his weekly Patriots Monday visit. Meriweather said that while the Patriots allowed 30 points to the Bills in Sunday's win, the defense came through when needed — as with his late fourth-quarter interception that sealed the victory. "When we had to get a play and we had to make a play, I feel like yes, we had some guys step up and make a play. ... We stepped up and had a lot of plays that needed to be made in crucial situations."

 

Asked why the Patriots have not lost to the Bills during Meriweather's tenure in New England, he said: "Great coaching. I think our coaches do a good job. Bill [Belichick] and the rest of the coaches get us ready for situational football, like what happened at the end of the game, and what happened at the end of the half. We go over situations like that all the time, and I think that was the...

Esiason on D&C: Pats have 'major problems'

CBS Sports NFL analyst Boomer Esiason checked in with the Dennis & Callahan show Monday morning for his weekly conversation. Esiason said that despite Sunday's win over the Bills, the Patriots clearly have issues that need to be addressed. "They have major problems on defense," Esiason said, focusing on the lack of a pass rush. "It is alarming. I think Bill Belichick realizes that."

 

Esiason said this puts additional pressure on Tom Brady to outscore the other team. "He's going to have to put up 35 points a week to win, because this defense has been so soft," Esiason said, adding: "If he has an off game, like he did in the second half last week [against the Jets], they're going to lose. And they're going to lose because that defense is not going to stop anybody. ... He doesn't have that kind of support around him [like teams with solid defenses]. Without that kind of support, he's going to have...
