Rob Ninkovich Deserves Pro Bowl Recognition, but Patriots Defensive End’s Value Cannot Be Seen in Traditional Stats

FOXBORO, Mass. – Rob Ninkovich‘s name has not been mentioned very often when it comes to Pro Bowl voting, but it should. There’s an obvious reason the New England Patriots defensive end continues to go unrecognized, and it’s his lack of sacks. Ninkovich has just seven sacks on the season, despite playing nearly every down, but it is excusable. Ninkovich has been asked to...

Report: Rob Ninkovich Is Expected to Be Available for Patriots’ First Playoff Game

When Rob Ninkovich went down on Sunday, and had a tough time getting off the field, it was easy to be reminded of Andre Carter‘s Week 15 season-ending injury in 2011. Luckily, it appears Ninkovich’s injury is far less serious. The Patriots’ defensive end suffered strained muscles in his hip, and is expected back for the Patriots’ first playoff game, according to Jeff Howe...

Ninkovich shifts from OLB to DE for Patriots

When he was an outside linebacker, Rob Ninkovich could spend more time covering receivers. He even intercepted two passes in two different games. He'd rather get sacks, and he has a better chance now that the New England Patriots have shifted him to his college position of defensive end. Playing on the line reduces Ninkovich's pass coverage responsibilities. He can focus...

Ninkovich less surprising for Patriots

New England linebacker Rob Ninkovich is used to surprising people. With the season he's having, Ninkovich is becoming less of a surprise and more a staple of the Patriots' defense. Ninkovich had two interceptions last week in the Patriots' win over the Jets, including one he returned 12 yards or a fourth-quarter touchdown. Not bad for a converted defensive end who played...
