Sharing Patriots podcast outline

By Mike Reiss

This week's Patriots podcast with Tedy Bruschi is now posted on (listen here), and the following is an outline of the discussion:

Recapping the Patriots' win over the Bills and Tedy's pre-game doubts.
AFC East snapshot -- early driver's seat for Patriots.
Picking 1 player on offense and defense that stands out after 4 games.
The referees are back.

Thoughts on Peyton Manning.
Why Willis McGahee is the key to the Patriots' plan.
Center Dan Koppen returns home as a Broncos starter; some Koppen stories.
Elvis Dumervil and Von Miller to be tested by the run.
Champ Bailey -- veteran CB still plays at high level.

@AvkarSiv -- What is the biggest concern for the Patriots 1/4 of the way through? Are they the top AFC team?
@therealJohnEast -- Can we expect double-digit carries from Brandon Bolden this coming weekend?
@kameronx -- Will Stephen Gostkowski show us that he can hit the big kick in the pressure moment?
@Commodity_Bull --  How concerned are you with Dont'a Hightower's hamstring injury?
@bahozak -- Stevan Ridley leads the NFL in rushes resulting in a first down with 28. Pretty remarkable. Thoughts?
@werdyo -- Did you have any indication Brandon Bolden could do this? Impressive.
@NFL_BSimonds21 -- No big hits or plays from Patrick Chung. Tavon Wilson is making more plays it seems. What do you think?
