Patriots defensive lineman Vince Wilfork made his weekly appearance on the Dale & Holley show as part of WEEI's Patriots Monday. Wilfork said Sunday's win over the Ravens was as physical at it looked.
"It was a very physical game," he said. "I think that's probably one of the most physical games I've ever been in. We knew what Baltimore was going to come in and do. We knew our game plan. We knew they weren't going to back down, and we weren't going to back down. It was from whistle to whistle."
Added Wilfork: "They wanted to be physical. They wanted to run the ball. And you know what? We answered the call. We knew that they wanted to do that. And don't forget, we're built the same way. We've been around here for a long time, too. We're built to stop the run. We're big and we're physical. That's one thing we said: We have to play up to our potential. And I think yesterday we did."...
Boomer Esiason of CBS Sports joined the Dennis & Callahan show Monday morning for his weekly chat about the Patriots and other happenings in the NFL. Esiason said the Patriots' victory over the Ravens went a long way toward validating the team's trade of Randy Moss.
"It seems like there's harmony again in Patriot land," Esiason said. "It's kind of a weird thing. Bill Belichick, it seems in the short term, did the right thing."
Added Esiason: "There is something to be said about harmony in the locker room, about everybody doing their job and doing it with a smile on their face, and nobody bitching and complaining behind the scenes. Reagrdless of what coach Belichick says, regardless of what Tom Brady says, the 800-pound gorilla is now removed from the locker room, and that was Randy Moss, always bitching and complaining about getting the ball. Maybe he didn't do it publicly, but...

Patriots quarterback Tom Brady made his weekly appearance on the Dennis & Callahan show as part of WEEI's Patriots Monday to talk about Sunday's 23-20 overtime victory over the Ravens. Following the game, Ravens linebacker Terrell Suggs warned that Brady "just better hope he doesn’t see us again."
Responded Brady: "He had his chance. Maybe if he gets another chance he can try to back those words up. But he had a chance yesterday. You know, we've played those guys a lot, and they've beat us one time in all the times that I've played them. They talk a lot for beating us once in nine years."
As for Suggs claiming that when Brady got in his face he was bragging about his supermodel wife, Brady said, "I think he made that up."
