|Super Fly… Ellis Hobbs||11.21.08 at 10:32 am ET|
Every so often you come across something that just screams BLOG NOW!
When you see Ellis Hobbs crank up Curtis Mayfield’s ‘Super Fly’ on his iPod in his locker stall and teammates like Randy Moss and Vince Wilfork walk by and point at the man with a smile on their face – that would be one of those instances. Such was the case Friday morning before the Pats went out to practice.
Hopefully for the Pats, this is one of those moments that shows the locker room is loose enough to deal with the pressure of a rare November game where the season could be on the line. There hasn’t been one of those for about eight years in New England.
Hobbs and Vince Wilfork both spoke Friday to the urgency of the game, labeling it as a ‘must-win’ scenario.
“You can say that, you can say it a whole bunch of different ways,” Hobbs said. “We desperately need this win. They do too. This should be a great divisional match-up.”
“It’s not the end of the road,” Wilfork declared. “Nobody is telling us the season is over. If they do tell us that, I’ll tell them something and it’s not nice. We’re very confident and we know what’s at stake and it’s going to start with a win. We have to win this week, a tough divisional game and move forward from that and week after that, do the same thing. It’s tough, but that’s NFL football.”
Hobbs then said that the Pats are aware that the Dolphins special teams might be an area to exploit. Remember back on Sept. 21, it was Hobbs who raced 81 yards on a kick-off return that set up New England’s only TD of the day.
