You say the Dolphins have improved.

Maybe Fuller (who is suspended), sure, but where? They lost both Van Noy, Karras, and Godchaux to the Pats. Their pickups were minimal - Brissett after losing Fitzpatrick, for example.

Are they really improved?

Looks to me like they've improved at WR, NT & DB; same or worse at QB, RB, TE, OL, DE & LB...

And without Fuller for a few weeks (and will he be the same without the juice?), that's a maybe...but probably improved when he's back at WR. Not for week 1, however.

I don't think they've improved at NT.

And overall? I don't see them as an improved team. Not just saying this as a Pat homer, but when you're saying a team has improved in the off-season, show me how and where.

It's easy to do with a roster like the Pats, of course - comparing this year to last ON PAPER is a joke.

Yeah to say the Doofins have "improved" can be rationalized to a degree, but they really haven't in any overall significant way that should prevent the Pats from beating them Sunday.
