Every day after the Patriots play, ESPN analyst Tedy Bruschi shares his observations as part of a "Bruschi on Tap" piece. Today was a bit of a different wrinkle, with Bruschi holding a chat to interact with Patriots followers.
Some of the answers from the chat comprise this week's "Bruschi on Tap", which is now posted on ESPNBoston.com and includes some of the following topics:
1. Is too much falling on Tom Brady's shoulders?
2. Thoughts on the defense, which is giving up a lot of yards.
3. The difference between the Patriots' defenses of old and the 2011 version.
4. The Patriots' offense and running the ball more.
5. Are the Patriots turning into the Colts?
6. Cornerback Devin McCourty's struggles.
