    Baas (and help) vs Wilfork can mean a win or loss for SB46

    I really hope they can contain him Wilfork.

    The last thing you want is for constant pressure to come up the middle to Elis face. It happened for about 2 years with Ohara before he was released and it was the main reason I wanted a replacement for him.

    I just hope they can at least pass protect for Eli at the least. The run is the least of my concerns (but would be nice).

    I noticed that while many say that the Pats defense improved in the playoffs (still look at the offenses they faced) they have allowed more rushing yards, approximately 130 yards per game. With that said maybe they can run a bit better in the SB.

    I just hope it all just doesn't come down to that match up.

    Peace,

    yeah he is a load inside ... my way to deal with Wilfork is to convert on 3rd down ... while the man is a great athlete for his size/shape ...but he is only human and the longer he is on the field for drives and the game, the more he will tire out



    and, of course, preventing long drives by NE is equally important and there have been many posts about NE going no huddle ... if they do a lot of no huddle ... Wilfork might suffer

    We beat Wilfork and a much better NE team in '07, and we're about to do it again.

He also has nearly 4 sacks in last 2 games I believe.

    which is pretty amazing, but my guess he has to be taking some of those plays off ... not that he turtles up on the ground, but that he more or less just goes through the motions to pace himself a bit ... he is also very smart and even Wilfork "taking a play off", still presents a big road block in the middle, but not necessarily the active, penetrating, disruptive force he can be when he is going full force

    Didn't he play in the last game? Don't we always have someone we need to game plan for? Haven't we, for the most part, been successful in doing that?

    while he will present aproblems and he will make plays he is only one player. The winner of the LOS will decide the game IMO but it will be as a group. The Pats will line up in base 3-4 and 4-3 at times. So Wilfork will not always be over Baas.

    [/quote]Baas didn't play that game.

    And yes I hope they game plan for it and I assume they have. But again just because you do still means the guys have to execute the plan.

    And we beat Wilfork and a healthy Pats team in the middle of the year in NE. I know that is a different game, but I LOVE our chances and confidence.
