1. Have the Patriots become the Colts teams they used to beat up?
2. Revisiting Bernard Pollard's hit on Stevan Ridley.
3. Old problems on defense resurface -- lack of pass rush and secondary.
4. Free agents Wes Welker, Aqib Talib and Sebastian Vollmer.
5. Receiver and defensive back as two positions likely to be a priority in offseason.
