Law, Brown: 'Huge boost of confidence' for Patriots defense
Sun, 30 Dec 2012|
Ty Law and Troy Brown talk about the Patriots shutting out the Dolphins offense and the boost of confidence it will give to the defense.
Defense doesn't get a lot of play around here because you always play second fiddle to Tom Brady but -- that that's a good performance certainly on an upward take as you go to the playoffs -- -- great performers I mean they they play well what -- some of their star players and this is gonna help him confidence -- going into the playoffs mean they actually. Came up. You gotta go say yeah maybe give up anything I know I really didn't know what to believe no better so that would definitely give these guys whose confidence going to play and and. Our president talk about all the players the Miami Dolphins missed. But this still gives a team to do this a team anyway he needs a boost of confidence. Going to the players when you can -- any team now in his league that's hard to do. I mean he's got the professional players they didn't played Miami Dolphins are playing for jobs next year and they will play enough to have a losing record so that's. A pretty impressive win and a pretty impressive performance by the the Patriots defense today. Talked about the Patriot defense Rob Ninkovich though time obviously it a -- -- for this team and went off. Gingerly on that leg and that's a concern for them because he's been an important guy for them from from step one this year. Right he's. Turn into their best pass rusher and I think that is very important that they have this by now we don't know the extent of his injuries are but. They need this guy out on the field because they have to generate some type of passion as they don't have a lot of guys as it is so this is very important that. He is healthy enough to play when it was time comes and and you're seeing it. Chandler Jones a little bit of a fall and before you know prior to the injury. I know a late sack against Jacksonville got close to Danielle a couple times in this one but it almost is peers is that Francis is all playing. Jones at this point in the rookie. -- down in all of those doesn't come along you don't hear much from dolls and help him or someone in his game either it and you look at the things that France is and those guys have been doing up front. And Rob Ninkovich is has been. A huge plus for this team to start applaud him and that is not a given more risks they started doing more things those linebackers -- stunned and -- men. You know to keep -- they were using those guys the situations with rob in the community and they -- that was a big part of that just because of his intelligence and his. Mike Vrabel like Molder. That he has come now that is on that defense so he's been a big plus form I think you if you can't make it before he's Forbes -- -- these playoff games he'll be missed the defensively. To a certain extent.
