Gresh and Zolak were joined Wednesday afternoon by Patriots safety Steve Gregory. With linebacker Jerod Mayo out for the season, Gregory has assumed the job as a defensive leader – earning the green dot on the helmet to be able to communicate with the sideline. Gregory touched on this new role with Gresh & Zo.

“I play a position where I need to understand what the [defensive] front is doing anyway, so it just makes me more a communicator as far as calling a defense for the guys that are out there,” said Gregory. “It’s really not that big of a deal for me. All our guys are capable of making calls and calling defenses, so it was just one of those things.”

The discussion then shifted towards the Dolphins game, which was a tale of two halves. Gregory highlighted some of the changes the Pats defense made that allowed them to be successful in the second half of that game.

“We sent a little bit more pressure, things like that. It just came down to guys going out and making plays when their name was called.”

Gregory then revealed his Halloween costume to be the Big Bad Wolf from “Little Red Riding Hood” (which his wife picked out for him, naturally) and looked ahead to Sunday, where the Patriots take on the Pittsburgh Steelers at 4:25pm.

“They have a lot of dangerous guys. Between [Emmanuel] Sanders, and [Antonio] Brown and [Jerricho] Cotchery when he comes in and plays the slot. [Heath] Miller at tight end. They have a really good group of guys that can create mismatches.”
