Vince Wilfork hauled off early on

Vince Wilfork AP

There were some boos in the Georgia Dome when Patriots defensive tackle Vince Wilfork hobbled off the field.

But any concerns from Falcons fans that he might just be trying to slow the pace of play were put to rest a few moments later.

Wilfork was just hauled to the locker room with his right shoe and sock off, after being checked by trainers. His return has been termed questionable.

That leaves the Patriots very thin inside, leaving them to rely on Tommy Kelley and a pair of rookies in Joe Vellano and Chris Jones.

    My Falcons are pathetic. $100M to a QB who plays scared? Really? We couldn’t score a TD inside the 10 yd line against a girl’s lacrosse team. Playoffs? PLAYOFFS??

    It’s not so much that the falcons are that bad as the patriots d has been pretty good. Our offense has cast a big shadow with their just good enough play, take a look at the points against are d doesn’t break.

    @giogiavol91:
    Your team is getting punched in the face by this girls lacrosse team. Out-toughed, pure and simple.

    I don’t think any team in the NFL would pass on a chance to have Vince Wilfork on their D. He has always brought a blue collar mentality to the game of football. Good luck Mr. Wilfork
