Tedy Bruschi chat recap

Every day after the Patriots play a game, Tedy Bruschi hosts his "Bruschi on Tap" chat on ESPNBoston.com. Today's chat kicked off at 9 a.m., can be recapped here, and included some of the following topics:

1. Is the up-tempo no-huddle what we'll see the rest of the year?

2. Defensive backs failing to play the proper technique when the ball is in the air.

3. The struggles to close out Sunday's game ... if they are really struggles.

4. Why Stevan Ridley's snaps might be reduced in the weeks to come -- ball-security concerns.

5. Impressions of rookie cornerback Alfonzo Dennard.

6. Follow-up on Wes Welker's comments after the game regarding Bill Belichick.
