Really interesting read…

Moore’s play, to many, was the quintessential example of the Patriots way of playing. You play until the whistle, until the play is over, you never give up on a play, and you don’t take anything for granted. “Honestly, it might sound cliche’, but they teach it that way in New England,” Moore said. “It’s never stop hustling, just do the little things, and play to the whistle. We had a drill that we used to do at the end of practice with the receivers where we were just literally playing their hands. We don’t look back for the ball as a DB, it’s just when their hands go up we try to break through their hands. And that’s what came up late in that game, with the game and the season on the line. For me, it was the only time throughout the season that situation came up. That moment was the only chance I had to do that all season.”

Sterling Moore came out of nowhere to play a pivotal role for the Patriots during the 2011 postseason. He remains an under-the-radar player now, and I continue to be impressed with technique and ability to leverage opponents. He plays with good bend and flexibility, and seems to have solid fundamentals to his game.

Of course I’m rooting for Sterling Moore, he came on the PatsProp & Frenz podcast!

PatsPropaganda & Frenz Podcast welcomes Sterling Moore at 3pm EST!

Join me and Frenz as we talk with AFC Championship game savior Sterling Moore today, or download it off Itunes immediately afterwards. It was a whirlwind rookie season for Moore. Here’s a quick recap of his comings and goings:

  • 9/26: released by Oakland
  • 10/5: signed to Pats practice squad
  • 10/15: promoted to Pats 53-man roster
  • 10/17: released by Patriots
  • 10/19: signed to Pats practice squad
  • 11/9: promoted to Pats 53-man roster
  • Plays four games for Pats, three at free safety.
  • 12/10: released by Patriots
  • 12/14: signed to Pats practice squad
  • 12/23: promoted to Pats 53-man roster
  • Plays significant snaps at LCB in season finale (2 interceptions, including one for a touchdown) and all three playoff games.

So for those playing at home Moore was released three times this season at different points. What a journey for a guy who then made the play that saved the Patriots season and sent them to the Super Bowl.

Looking forward to hearing how Moore stayed focused through the ups and downs of the season, and what he’s doing this off-season to prepare for 2012.
