Patriots.com News Blitz - 9/24/2008

With the Patriots off this Sunday, most of today's stories involve looking back on last week's loss since there is nothing to look forward to in the immediate future.

The *Boston Globe *picks the brain of several former and current NFL executives to get an idea of what people around the league think of the Patriots through the first three weeks of the season.

Meanwhile, the *Boston Herald *asks the media – and fans – to lay off Randy Moss, whose leadership and performance has come into question in the wake of Sunday's surprising loss.

"I don't think this is the same Randy we saw in Oakland," CBS analyst Solomon Wilcots told the Herald.

The *Herald *also tells us to expect to see more of the gadget plays the Dolphins used to perfection in the upcoming weeks as teams try to emulate Miami's plan of attack in an attempt to beat New England.

Finally, the Providence Journal offers no sympathy for the Patriots.
