The Patriots are still searching for answers following Sunday's surprising loss to Miami.
Cornerback Ellis Hobbsis disappointed in the fans who booed the team's performance at Gillette Stadium.
"I don't block it out. I accept it. I remember. I use it," Hobbs told the Boston Globe.
Hobbs was part of a defense that allowed more than 200 rushing yards and get beat over the middle on pass plays by Miami quarterback Chad Pennington.
"They executed some plays better than we defended them. There were different things on different plays," head coach Bill Belichicktold the Boston Herald.
The Patriots never adjusted to Miami's spread offense. Ronnie Brown took advantage of the confusion and rushed for four touchdowns – three on direct snaps.
"We prepared for a lot of things, so many that I can't really put a finger on if we thought he would be doing that or not," defensive end Ty Warrentold the Attleboro Sun Chronicle.
According to wide receiver Randy Moss, the Dolphins simply wanted it more.
"I guess that's something crazy for me to say, but I was out there and I could really see it," Moss told the Providence Journal.
Lastly, the New Bedford Standard-Times takes a look at quarterback Matt Casseland how he has become a scapegoat after struggling in Sunday's loss.
"You have to manage the game in order to win, and that means taking care of the ball and that means getting points on the board," Cassel told the* Standard-Times*.
The national media has weighed in on Sunday's loss. FOX Sports says the Patriots could be in for a long season if the defense cannot make adjustments on the fly.
USA Today says the problems are mounting fast and they extend way beyond Tom Brady's season-ending injury.
