Same thing in the secondary where no position has been won or lost yet.

Rain brings out Wilfork's bestÔÇæÔÇæÔÇæ
Got to love Vince Wilfork.
When all the other Patriots went sprinting for the locker room in the deluge, the Pats nose guard steamed up the hill adjacent to the practice field, just to check on his family.
Sign the guy, please. He's a professional on the field and a class act off it.
Faulk: Taylor will fit inÔÇæÔÇæ
Leadership, and the multitude of veterans brought in here, was a clear topic for discussion.
Kevin Faulk, who noted he's loved and respected Fred Taylor since meeting him and hanging out with him on a recruiting visit to the University of Florida, said Taylor will fit right in here.
"It's all about fitting in, not trying to overdo your veteran leadership, just fitting in," said Faulk. "You know when it's the right time. You just know."
Taylor also made the elevator trip up to the press box and noted, "I feel privileged. We're in a recession and I've got a job. It feels great."
Taylor went on to make the brazen statement that Tom Coughlin, whom he played for in Jacksonville, is a lot tougher to play for than Belichick. Obviously, Taylor hasn't seen Belichick after a loss.
