Dolphins

Dolphins’ veteran QB Ryan Fitzpatrick feels he is playing “better now than I’ve ever been” based on his focus and preparation. 

“Personally, I feel like I’m better now than I’ve ever been,” said Fitzpatrick, via Aldain Poupart of the team’s official site. “Statistically, whatever, just in terms of what I’m doing and my focus and preparation and going out there with the group that I have and my confidence is at an all-time high just in terms of all that stuff.”

Fitzpatrick said his time with the Dolphins has been a “very positive experience” despite being 3-9 overall. 

“I don’t like losing, but in terms of the day-to-day and the effort that we put in from the top down, the coaches to the players to the kitchen staff to the equipment guys, everybody, this is a really good building in terms of all that stuff and the effort and the ‘want to’ is there. I’ve had a very positive experience.”
