BOSTON (WBZ-AM) -- Patriots are in rare territory--for the wrong reasons. Tom Brady's lost three of his last four dating back to last year's Super Bowl, and he's certainly not happy with the Pats' place in the standings. Brady spoke with Westwood One this week.

"It's just a work in progress, and we're working through a lot of things," Brady said. "The thing I'm focused on is not who hasn't played, who has played--it's focused on what I need to do to help the team win. It's obviously not good enough. Being 1-2 and looking up at everyone else in the division, it's not a good place to be."

Pats next test is Sunday against the East-leading, 3-0 Dolphins.

The QB said he hasn't lost confidence in New England's personnel. No one's throwing in the towel.

"It doesn't get easier," he said. "No one's feeling sorry for the Patriots. We got ourselves into this, we gotta get ourselves out of it."

Rob Gronkowski admitted over the weekend he killed an offseason trade to the Lions because he only wants to play with Brady. Brady is thankful.

"It speaks to the relationship we have," Brady said. "I love being out there with him. He's produced at an incredible level for as long as he's been in the league. What he's fought through, no one will ever know. He's one of the toughest guys I've ever been around. I love playing with him. Hopefully we'll have many more years together."

That'd be nice.
