    Finally, backup center Joe Berger feels his trial by fire over the past two weeks has prepared him well to face Patriots nose tackle Vince Wilfork should he get his second start in place of injured starting center Jake Grove. "The first play I had really at center was against Carolina and the first play Julius Peppers twisted right into me, so if there's a better D-lineman out there I don't know who it is," Berger said. Last week in Buffalo he went against Pro Bowler Marcus Stroud, so he doesn't feel he'll be caught off guard.

    I really had a hard time thinking three centers just had an unfortunate accident in one game. Did anyone get a good look at why three were hurt? I did'nt see why, just seen the fact we where fixing to suit Sparano up because we ran out of men. Is Peppers a dirty player?

    Wilfork is a big boy to have to go up against hope he stays healthy.

    What does he mean by twisted into me? Does he mean a spin move?

    A twist is a defensive line "stunt". There is kind of an inconsistency with this kind of terminology, but basically what happens is a defensive end, instead of his normal edge rushing, and instead loops around and tries to get penetration in the middle.

    In this case, Julius Peppers instead of going up against Jake Long looped to the interior and became Joe Berger's responsibility unexpectedly.
