While it sounds corny, I see no reason for the Dolphins to regress. For all the talk of line improvement, and secondary improvement... the biggest factor from last season that most of the articles leave out from last year was how poor the special teams play was on punts and kickoffs for most of the year. For sure the Houston game was a win, but for special teams. They almost lost to Oakland, and Seattle due to this. I believe for all the reasons mentioned before, if the special teams improve like the rest of team did in 2008, then that can make up for the tougher schedule.   Just like last year the upgrade in talent and the philosophy of the management makes up for the potentially tougher schedule.  We all know that looking at this years team based on last years record can really mean.  Consider all the teams that had the 1-15 Dolphins on their 2008 schedule.   What was their strenght of schedule in 2008?
