Suddenly, Rodney Harrison thinks there's hope for the Patriots' defense heading into the postseason.
And a lot of it has to do with the return of Patrick Chung.
"I think this defense can," the ex-Patriots safety, and now an NBC football analyst, said Thursday on 'Quick Slants' when asked by Tom E. Curran if the Pats' 'D' could help the Pats win in the playoffs. And he specifically referred to Chung as a key:
"Patrick Chung coming back really solidifies that secondary . . . I think he really brings that physical presence and that reliability, that dependability, that you need back there . . . Being the quarterback of that defense, getting everyone lined up, and really providing that spark and leadership that they need."
