There's quite a bit of frustration in Miami this morning, and here's a look at some of the reactions in the local media following last night's loss.

Ray McNulty of the Naples News writes that Tom Brady's performance last night brought back memories and reminded him of Dan Marino.

Mike Berardino of the Florida Sun-Sentinal has his report card, and gives the defense a tough grade after allowing Brady's record setting night.

He also has his 'Three things we learned' from last night, and says, "so much for peak conditioning" for Miami.

Armando Salguero of the Herald also chimes in on that topic, and writes that the Patriots put a cramp in Miami's home field weather advantage.

Boston Globe correspondent Christina Ledra writes that despite the loss, the Dolphins saw a lot of positives after last night's game.

Ben Volin of the Miami Herald has a "By the Numbers" entry after last night's game with some interesting stats.

Brian Biggane of the Palm Beach Post writes that Miami's defense was embarrassed by what Tom Brady did to them last night.
"Give him credit for what he did, but at the same time we've got to go back to challenging guys," Bell said. "Any time you hear 500 yards (passing) and 600 of total defense, that's embarrassing for a defense. That's not us at all. For us to do that tonight and not get off the field, that's embarrassing."

Jeff Darlington of the Miami Herald writes that after all the talk about Chad Henne and the other potential, all that got turned upside down last night.

Dave Hyde of the Sun-Sentinal has 10 thoughts from last night's game, including the fact that he's wondering where the Dolphins pass rush was last night.

Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald writes that 'Different' didn't translate into better for the Dolphins last night.

David Neal of the Herald writes that the second string DB's were battered by Brady and the Patriots offense.

Israel Guitierrez of the Herald writes that the Reggie Bush experiment got off to a rocky start last night.
