Tedy Bruschi Patriots chat recap

Tedy Bruschi's weekly New England Patriots chat recap was held at noon ET. The chat is recapped here and includes some of the following topics:

1. How the defense is buying the offense more time -- like the 2001 season with then-rookie QB Tom Brady.

2. In this "new" NFL, September is now an extension of the preseason.

3. Struggles of the young receivers and why it will take some time for them to turn the corner.

4. Best running back he's ever played against.

5. More is needed from the offensive line and running game.

6. How Danny Amendola's mentality doesn't match his durability.
