Ty Warren talked about what the Patriots had to do leading up to their rematch against the New York Jets, and one of those things was to pressure quarterback Chad Pennington so he wouldn't be able to hurt the Patriots through the air. Warren and his fellow lineman Vince Wilfork and Richard Seymour did just that last Sunday, sacking, pressuring and knocking Pennington out of rhythm.
The Jets went three and out on their first drive in what would be an omen for what was to follow the rest of the game.
"You look at the first two contests and what was going on, they were throwing a lot of short passes," Warren said of the Patriots plan to pressure Pennington. "The only way to interfere with those passes was to get pressure in his face as much as possible. The emphasis all week was to get pressure in his face as much as possible."
Warren understood that while he was back on the field (Warren missed the Nov 12th meeting), a lot of help came from his teammates, namely rus stopper Vince Wilfork.
"That's huge, anytime you have the big brother up in there," Warren said of having Wilfork back. "He makes a lot happen right three in the middle for us."
