Every Monday after the Patriots play a game, ESPN analyst Tedy Bruschi hosts his "Bruschi on Tap" chat to answer questions about the team and its performance. Bruschi's chat kicked off at 2 p.m. ET, can be recapped here, and included some of the following topics:
1. Thoughts on rookie linebacker Dont'a Hightower.
2. Wes Welker's reduced playing time and what it might mean.
3. Observations on left tackle Nate Solder and the play of the offensive line.
4. Being careful about reading too much into the win over the Titans.
5. Nate Ebner and how Bill Belichick taps his connections to find players like him.
6. How Jermaine Cunningham's presence had a New York Giants-like feel to it.
