New England Patriots Links 1/07/11 - Friday Off For Practicing Good Behavior

Wes Welker talks about the team's focus this week.

"I think the key thing is self-scouting and making sure that we're staying on top of everything and then getting better this week. And I think that's key for us [to] just go out and get better and do better this week."

"We take it very serious. We're in a great position right now, and you can't take these kind of opportunities for granted. [We need to] understand that we're in a good situation and we need to make sure that this is a time we need to rise above and make sure that we're staying on top of everything and hitting on all cylinders."

Vince Wilfork addresses what it's like to practice without a game on Sunday and what the team wants to accomplish.

With us not having a game this week, I think we're trying to stay in our regular routine - going out to practice and putting us in pads and everything - just so we don't lose a lot. [It's] understandable, understandable. I think we got some good work done yesterday. I really think we got better as a football team yesterday and we need to continue that today. I'm looking forward to another good practice today and hopefully that will be enough with the guys that are banged up. At this point in the year, you have a lot of guys with all types of injuries and bumps and bruises so we need to make sure that we can get those taken care of. [We're] looking for another good today, so hopefully we can get it done.

Our goal is to win. Everybody has a job to do. I don't care if you're a quarterback, receiver, defensive lineman, linebacker, whoever that may be, a kicker, you know what your job is. At the end of the day if you do your job, hopefully we can win.
