King: Haynesworth 'going to be a force'

Sports Illustrated’s Peter King spoke with Mut & Merloni about the Patriots and other NFL news Friday afternoon.

King said that the Patriots’ more aggressive pass rush this preseason reflects less a philosophical change and more a personnel-based decision.

“If [Albert Haynesworth] is in the lineup on September 11, he’s going to be a force in a 4-3 defense next to Vince Wilfork,” King said. “I think Wilfork is excited about it, I think all the guys behind him are excited about it, and there’s no question in my mind … they’re going to play a lot of 4-3.”

King also said trying to label NFL defenses as 3-4 or 4-3 is “so silly.”

“What happens mostly is that teams just morph into so many different things,” King said. “Last year, the New England Patriots had three defensive linemen on the field on 39 percent of the snaps. So, if that’s a...

Light on Big Show: 'Competition is key'

Patriots veteran tackle Matt Light has been slowly working his way back into form following offseason shoulder surgery and in his absence first round pick Nate Solder has been seeing most of the time at his position. Appearing as a guest on WEEI's The Big Show, Light said that the competition among the offensive line is healthy and that the mentoring process happens naturally.

"We all do a good job of pushing each other. I think competition is key to any team's success," Light said. "When it comes to some of these young guys sure you want to impart some knowledge that you've gained over the years. Whether it's thinks about technique, whether it's an individual play, things you have to look out for, things that have happened to you, that kind of just happens naturally through the process.  When I was a younger play I had a lot of guys who were doing that for me. Whether it was the [Mike] Compton's or watching some of these older guys...

Mayo on M&M: 'Back to the drawing board'

Patriots linebacker Jerod Mayo joined the Mut & Merloni show Friday to discuss Thursday's impressive preseason victory over the Buccaneers.

"Coach has been putting in new things each and every day. We've just been trying to see what works," Mayo said. "Last night, some things worked well for us. We'll go back to the drawing board and take those good things out and work on the bad plays and see what happens."

Asked about the Patriots' apparent move to use the 4-3 more often, Mayo was noncommittal. "I don't know what we're going to run," he said. "I'm sure we'll show a lot of different looks."

Rookies attempting to learn the Patriots' system have had a short offseason due to the lockout, but Mayo offers no excuses for them.

"There's no sympathy on Sundays. None at all," he said with a laugh. "At the same time, these coaches are — we're meeting a lot, they're throwing a lot...
