New England Patriots Links 2/04/11 - Patriots O-Line Wins Madden Most Valuable Protectors Award

Patriots offensive linemen Dan Koppen, Dan Connolly and Mark LeVoir pose with John Madden and the Madden Most Valuable Protectors Award for being this year's best offensive line.

Ian Rapoport talks with Darrelle Revis on Radio Row about his Pro Bowl experience of being coached by rival Bill Belichick.

"No, it wasn’t [weird]," Revis said. "Because I had (Eric) Mangini. Mangini comes from where Belichick comes from. But I’ll tell you, Belichick’s not a bad guy. He’s not. He wants people to work hard, and play great football."

As for his own not being here, Revis said, "I mean, we have a lot of positive things this year, but the icing on the cake is being here and winning it. That would’ve made us very happy, but it just shows you how tough it is to get to the Super Bowl and to actually win it."

Ian Rapoport notes former Rams coach Dick Vermeil had this to say to 98.5 The SportsHub's Felger & Mazz about spygate:

"I don’t know if everyone was doing it, but everyone might’ve had a method of trying to do it," Vermeil told 98.5 FM. "Maybe he did it better than everyone else. OK? And I’ll tell you this: In all honesty, I’ve coached as a head coach 15 years and an assistant four years, I know some things that have been done in the National Football League and I could document them, if I wanted to, that are far worse than that ever came close to being."

John Madden talks about the Madden Most Valuable Protectors Award.

"The offensive line doesn't always catch the fans' attention, so Prilosec OTC and I created this award to recognize the guys who provide the critical run blocking and pass protection," said John Madden.

"All season long, these guys proved they had the mental and physical toughness that enabled the Patriots offense to put up impressive numbers on the ground and in the air."
