Patriots running back Sammy Morris visited with the Dale & Holley show to talk about the Patriots' recent struggles. He said he isn't letting the losing bring him down too much. "I try to stay even-keeled," he said. "I try not to get too over-excited about wins, and I try not to get too down about losses."
The Patriots defense has come under a lot of criticism lately, but Morris said he's not concerned. "I don't think there's any wavering confidence with the defense," he said.
Patriots quarterback Tom Brady made his weekly appearance on the Dennis & Callahan show to analyze Sunday's 22-21 loss to the Dolphins in Miami. "We haven't had many losses like we've had this year in terms of games that we were really competitive in the second half but just didn't find a way to win in the fourth quarter," Brady said.

NFL analyst Boomer Esiason made his weekly appearance on the Dennis & Callahan show Monday morning to discuss the Patriots' loss to the Dolphins. "Right now there's not an ounce of respect given to the New England defense in the passing game," Esiason stated.
Esiason broke down the Patriots problems thusly: "No. 1, I would start with no pass rush whatsoever, that brings me back to the trade of Richard Seymour. At least you had one guy there that was a legitimate pass-rusher. When he wanted to and was motivated to, he could always seem to make a play. No. 2, the uncharacteristic mistakes of Tom Brady. Throwing interceptions in Indianapolis in the end zone, yesterday in the end zone, the interception against New Orleans that completely changed the momentum of that game even though it was only on the second series of the game. And then, if you want to say questionable coaching decisions, going for it on fourth down it seems...
