The New England Patriots are gearing up for what will hopefully be another deep playoff run. This team has always been viewed as the crew that's been there before. However, breakout players including Aqib Talib, Alfonzo Dennard, Dont'a Hightower, and Chandler Jones are new to the most important part of the NFL season. Now, the question is whether this inexperience will have an affect on them or not.
Talib seems to think that it won't. In an interview after practice, he was quoted saying "I've never been to the postseason, but I'm not a rookie or nothing," and then followed up with "Once we get out there and the game starts, it's still football." Talib believes that the best way to gain insight on playing in the postseason is to simply go out there and do it.
