Every Thursday on ESPNBoston.com, there is a Patriots chat in the early afternoon. Today's chat kicked off at noon, can be recapped here, and included some of the following topics:
1. Which player most exceeded your expectations this season?
2. Bill O'Brien possibly departing and candidates to become offensive coordinator.
3. Defensive coordinator thoughts.
4. More of Sterling Moore at cornerback?
5. Looking at the AFC playoffs and possible matchups.
6. Julian Edelman and his future -- offense or defense?
