Henne clarifies Tebow comment, talks WRs

It is a beautiful day in South Florida, a perfect golf day, and that's good because about a dozen Dolphins players are participating in the Athletes in Action charity tournament now.

Chad Henne is participating because he's a good community guy. He talked to reporters today -- The Herald's Jeff Darlington and David J. Neal were there because they love golf -- and they asked Henne about his controversial Tim Tebow comment Wednesday, in which the Dolphins quarterback said, "In my judgment he's not an NFL quarterback. So leave it at that."

Today Henne didn't want to leave it at that. Today Henne was surrounded by reporters that asked better questions. Today Henne backtracked a little bit.

"I didn't really say he wasn't wasn't able to be one," Henne said of Tebow. "We're all in this process, learning how to be an NFL quarterback. Obviously, he's taken the right steps to improve his game. His throwing motion actually looks a lot better with his release and everything. I think his Pro Day went really well and he was happy with it. I can't really say anything. My quarterback coach from college is coaching him in college. We're coming from the same people.

"He's obviously learned a from a lot of good people. And with Urban Meyere up there, he's learned from the best. Those [comments] were way out of proportion, he's not going to be an NFL quarterback. Wherever he goes, he's going to make that team better because he's such a competitor and a great person."

Henne was uncomfortable that the comments got national attention. He was more uncomfortable that his comment was perceived as coming from the Dolphins -- as an inside the Dolphins organization opinion.

"The thing about that is that dragging the Dolphins and our coaching staff into this when it's way out of proportion," Henne said. "I never talked to them about Tebow. They never mentioned anything. It was all what I was perceived to say. I have nothing against him. I really like him as a person. I met him last year up there at Florida working out their receivers and got an opportunity to play against him so he really is a wonderful person and I only wish him the best."

Henne claimed WQAM, where he made the original Tebow remark, cut him off before he could explain his comment. He said he would have liked the opportunity to add that Tebow is working on what he needs to and he liked what he saw.

On the football front, Henne has been consistent in saying he sees improvement from Miami's current WR corps. He believes in those guys. But ...

Henne admits he wouldn't mind the group being improved with a proven player.

"There's definitely guys out there, like you said," Henne said. "There's T.O. [Terrell Owens]. There's Brandon Marshall. There's guys in the draft. Where we're at, we have a bunch of young guys who are definitely learning and going to be explosive in the next coming year.

"But you need kind of a veteran guy that's really going to take hold of our young guys and teach them the right ways."

I like Ricky too butwith Dtewhebe looking for big payday, I'm interested in seeing his performance this year 1st

With Drew he will be looking for a big payday..

He wont get it......

cuban,

how come you come when i show up ?

This is last year of his contract, is Ricky trade bait??? Some team can now sign him longer term now since he wants to play...Or do we let him play this year and lose him to FA next year ???

Not sure aloco, Maybe it's the smell of meatballs and marinara sauce....

Comfortably mAn ur leaving us without a proven playmaker at wide receiver are u comfortable with that? Also, guys, let's be honest, we can't draft a safety, we need a veteran like sharper, our secondary couldn't be more green and young, and they need schooled. We need Bryant in the first, or trade the second for Marshall.

Also there is no nose tackle in ur scenario. I don't believe we need a lb more than we do a nt.

HOW ABOUT TRADING UP? TRADE OUR 1-12 PLUS THIGPEN AND GET E.BERRY (a F.S. who is compared to Ed Reed) ....

DEFENSEDEFENSEDEFENSEDEFENSEDEFENSE............

TEBOW WOULD BE A GREAT PICK FOR MINNESOTA .... WHERE HE CAN LEARN FROM FAVRE THIS COMING YEAR ..... THEN IN HIS SECOND YEAR HE CAN TEAM UP WITH PERCY HARVIN AGAIN

Inismounts, Dolphins have already come out n said they have no interest in any of the FS UFAs out there...so I wouldn't count on Sharper...We pretty much threw rooks Sean Smith and Davis out there...I have no big qualms with Clemons, Culver and a draftee such as Thomas battle it out in camp to start

Like Brandon Marshall, I could care less where Tebow goes. As long as itsnot here in Miami

Henne the Hero

Joey Porter signs 3 year contract with Cardinals , poor Card fans, we get Dansby tgey get a loud mouth old LB

Finally people are talking sense.

Looks like the mighty air breathers won that one huh B12????

Yeah the Cards don't know nothin bout no linebackers.

Like giving away a Cadillac and getting a pinto.... With a defective gas tank, only a matter of time before it goes up in flames....

If Matt Roth, Joey Porter & Ernest Wilford produce next year Sparano's gonna have a lot of explaining to do.

Is there going to be a draft day party? And if so, why can't I find any info about it?

The Cardinals win the plungie for signing Hoey Porter

Matt Roth, Joey Porter & Ernest Wilford produce next year Sparano's gonna have a lot of explaining to do.

A guy that wouldnt say what was wrong with himself, Another guy with the biggest canyon this side of the grand canyon and a IQ that was about the average temperature of Nome,Alaska, and another one that collected Millions and produced nothing, If anything If Sparano didn't get rid of these Zeros he'd have a lot of explaining to do... you know what Price, Iam nominating you for a "PLUNGIE".......

Ernest Wilford didn't produce last year for the Jags, why would he produce this year?

Do I see a "PLUNGIE" for Price master???? Guys what are your thoughts???

I am going to ride cuban menace bareback and go balls deep until my schlong looks like a banana that was dipped in melted chocolate

And I see chickenshyt coward is here...unlike PO I ain't gonna get involved...I'm signing off for the night, bye bye Paul

Fake bobby12 at 7:54

Ok guys the Cuban bids you all "ADIUE", Till tommarrow have a "PHINTASTIC" nite........

Henne is a jerk for making that comment no matter how you slice it. Fact is that Tim Tebow has already accomplished
More than Henne ever will unless Henne someday wins the super bowl, and that is, sorry to say, highly unlikely to ever happen. Henne will QB the Dolphins while we build the rest of the team and then we will replace him with a real QB who can play at the super bowl-team cailber. Henne is the next Bubby Brister

Bubby Brister also had a fat neck........

THE FAT IS IMPORTANT FOR CERTAIN DISHES .

KEVIN11C, WHY AQRE YOU DOWN ON HENNE THE HERO ? TEBOW DIDN'T DO A SH..T SO FAR .

TO BE OR NOT TO BE .THAT'S THE QUESTION DONKEYS .

FAT IS IMPORTANT, JUST ASK ME FAT AZ-Z GIRLFRIEND MAMA MARIE, SHE STICK MY MEATBALLS UP HER FAT GRIZZLED AZ-Z

F' Tebow in fact I will fill his cornhole with my cream cheese (its fresh daily)!!!

Henne the hero.....

Tebow the zero.....

HENNE THE HERO
TEBOW THE PIZZA COOK

MAMA MARIE, I TRADE HER FOR DONKEY, DONKEY GOT SMALLER AZ-Z AND SMELL BETTER

TEBOW IS MEATBALL QB
HENNE IS FILET QB

ok guys check this video out http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZYSxJgjjJFc

MAMA MARIA NOT MAMA MARIE DONKEY .

CUBAN, CHEK THIS OUT .

CUBAN CHEK THIS OUT...MAMA MARIE DO MOVIE WITH DONKEY, NOT SURE WHO HAVE BIGGER PEE-NIS

Here's the deal with Tebow......

He does suck, so why all the harsh feelings towards Henne?

Just giving people his opinion....

as far as I see it, telling it like it is....

MAMA MARIE DO DONKEY MOVIE WHILE MAKING MY MEATBALLS

When Porter was saying Brady was overrated last year everybody was all pumped up, but when Henne says something about Tebow everything gets blown out of proportion...

MAMA MARIA IS MAKING MEATBALL WHILE I AM WATCHING A MOVIE CALL ( WHY ME ) ?

I'd rather have tebow on my team than pat white, anyday, and I don't like tebow or the gators (go canes :) but let's not forget tebow is a Florida guy. Also, bobbyd12 I really can't believe u don't want Marshall on this team u seem insightful but IMHO he would do wonders for us. I just think alot of fans don't get that we have the WORST wr core in the league. Bar none gentleman. Stats don't lie.

One more thing, I'm a michigan fan right after the canes, and I watched that bowl game that henne played against tebow. It was a rough year for henne due to injury (senior year), but he was perfect that day and tebow was horrible and Michigan whooped em.

Holy crap. They paid Joey big money. Why????

Inimounts, no sir, I'm telling u straight up I don't want Brandon Marshall on this team...'

Honestly, it don't matter..WQAM had a call in show couple hours ago and this is what the host told a caller, "Brandon Marshall is one of the most talented receivers in this league but everyone I have talked to in the Dolphins organization has told me the exact same thing, the Dolphins have NO INTEREST in Brandon Marshall. There is not even internal discussions on this matter, Parcells is not gonna take this guy". I have been telling u guys since Denver put this guy on the market, Parcells is not going to give up a draft pick for a guy he doesn't like nor want...u can argue all u want but it does no good and is a waste of time, and after hearing this guy talk on WQAM tonite I am more convinced then ever...

My mother is a 2 bit h-o-o-k-e-r-. I like to toss salad .

I give good head.

However I would like the black of Marshall and finger bang his rear.

like = lick. sorry had black butthole on the brain

Armando,

Times up man. You got to do something about the sick sh it going on here.
I know you know who it is. You're losing bloggers here everyday. Even the trolls are going elsewhere.

You owe it to us fans Armando, we support you and we value this blog.
Show us a little love back and get rid of this blatantly sick individual that's ruining my/our favorite Dolphin Blog.

Armando,

I agree with the noble Odinseye.

Thanks Carlito.

I hope everyone else weighs in on this issue.
I believe in civil liberties and free speech etc, etc. but enoughs ENOUGH!

PS: Henne the Hero!!!!
