Taylor Looking to Lead by Example for the Pats

RB Fred Taylor plans to lead by example as the elder back in the crowded New England backfield, as quoted on

“I don’t want to take too much credit. It’s just simple. I’ve been around for awhile, I’ve seen a lot, and only through my experience is when I speak. I don’t want to mislead anyone, but if I see someone slacking or not doing the right thing, I’ll kind of pull them aside and say, ‘Hey, I don’t think that will be for the better of the team.’ I try not to overstep my boundaries. I do a great job, I think, of knowing when it’s a good time to approach someone or be a leader. Granted, you want to be consistent when you’re being a leader.” Taylor added: “I’m just coming in here, I still have to learn the playbook, learn some of my offensive linemen’s names and a lot of the coaches’ names, so I’m still getting used to everything myself. What I can say is that through my experience, I will say something if I think I can help someone.”
