On Thursday, Patriots linebacker Brandon Spikes joined SportsNation for an online chat, which can be recapped here, and included some of the following topics:
1. Spikes' role in EA Sports' NCAA Football 13.
2. Which rivalry is better: Jets-Patriots or Florida-Georgia.
3. Whether he prefers a 3-4 or 4-3 defense.
4. Why he wants to improve his "lateral quickness" this season.
5. Motivation, and what he is like before games.
