Vince Wilfork Says ‘Take That, Revis’ After Wes Welker’s Big Catch Against Jets


Vince Wilfork Says 'Take That, Revis' After Wes Welker's Big Catch Against Jets As an organization, the Patriots always like to let their play on the field do all the talking rather than engaging in a war of words with other teams through the media. Vince Wilfork might be the best at it, as just last week he turned down the opportunity to respond to Cowboys center Phil Costa's assesment of Wilfork as a "speed bump."

But in the heat of battle against the Jets and with a microphone under his jersey, Wilfork showed some of the fire that generally is kept under wraps.

In a segment on Sound FX, Wilfork was mic'd up for the Patriots' win over the Jets in Week 5. Following Wes Welker's 73-yard catch-and-run behind vaunted cornerback Darrelle Revis, the camera showed Wilfork enjoying the show from the sideline.

"Take that, Revis," Wilfork said.

After the cornerback caught up with Welker and eventually tackled him, though, Wilfork was still impressed.

"Hey," Wilfork said to Kyle Love, "Revis can run a little bit, huh?"

Other highlights include:

  • Wilfork telling Bill Belichick to throw the challenge flag on Deion Branch's fumble — a call that was eventually overturned
  • No. 75 showing some leadership and rallying the troops after the Jets scored
  • Wilfork telling Brian Waters that he looks like a "black Tedy Bruschi" (Waters wears Bruschi's old  No. 54)
  • Wilfork assuring Chad Ochocinco that he's "getting there" and is showing improvement each week
  • Wilfork telling an official what down it is in order to correct the sign on the sideline
