This is fair, and FWIW, the Pats don't see Buffalo until December, so the head to head inside the division stuff, while revealing, in this case, is going to have a long time to develop. I'm going to wait to see where we are at Thanksgiving before getting anxious about how common opponents tell us things.Despite it being the Dolphins in both games this is almost an apples to oranges comparison---we faced Miami with a rookie making their first ever start with a ton of new guys and in their second game the Fins lost their starting QB in the first quarter. If the upshot is that we aren't as good as Buffalo in week 2, I'm not sure anyone thought we would be.
And I'm not criticizing Mac or Josh. I'm saying I want to see more because he seems to be handling what he's been given really well.
