Chad Henne versus Jets: Nails

One of the topics that seems to be constantly on the tongue of fans and media is the progress of quarterback Chad Henne.

The topic matters so much this week because Henne faces perhaps one of the best defenses he will see all year this week when Miami plays the Jets. The Jets have the No. 11 total defense in the NFL right now.

They press up front and play zone behind that. They press up front and play Cover 2 behind that.

They come with multiple fronts and multiple pressures.

And against the chaos Henne last season completed 32 of 47 passes (68 percent completion) for 353 yards with three touchdowns and zero interceptions in two games.

Most importantly, Henne was 2-0 against New York.

"Is there anyone else in the league 2-0?" Offensive coordinator Dan Henning asked rhetorically today. "And one of the best games offensively we've offensively here -- in fact, I would go so far as to say the best game we've had -- was last year. I think it was his third start. He played magnificently ... He played a superb game."

Henning continued: "There were times in the game the pressure came on Chad Henne and he did the right thing ... He had a chance to have something bad happen to him and did the right thing to avoid that. And he made some big plays when they were there. And at the end of the second game, although we didn't have a lot of stats, in the fourth quarter we had a drive for a touchdown to put the game where we up by five."

One of the primary goals of the Jets defense is to get in a QB's head. Henning isn't worried about that with Henne.

"I don't know how far Chad is going to go in this game as a quarterback," Henning said. "Now, he has all the tools. He has a tremendous desire to be the best. He is willing to take the pain of discipline rather than accept the pain of regret later. He's willing to do that. He's in this building every night. He looks at every piece of film. He studies. There's nothing frivolous about Chad Henne when it comes to football. I would think it would be tough to get in that guy's head."

[Update: The Dolphins have claimed TE Mickey Shuler Jr. off waivers from the Minnesota Vikings, according to a club source.]

When first you met, did you get the feeling she could see right through you?

ALL i have do say is the Fins are averaginr 135 yds. passing per game. OOOOOOOOOOOOOO, lets break out the Super bowl Rings. Bench the IDIOT!!!!!!!!!

LOL At Odin,My Schmeckle as you could guess was hiding like a turtle.....

Cuban Menace,

Some guys have all the luck. You get shot at work and end up meeting the girl of your dreams.

Myself, on the other hand, the girl of my dreams came home from work early and shot me.

I still think she should have shot her sister too, it was as much her fault as it was mine!

Crazy Huh......

"Osama Bin Edwards"!! funny sh*t Marc!!

nFL network praising Misi yesrerday... Funny how so many were poopie cuz they wanted Kindle (IR).

OK Guys, See you all later, Gonna catch Jocory harris throw a few INTs, Have a "PHINTASTIC" Nite... Peace..

Warren Sapp said something interesting on one of them shows (not that he knows nearly as much as us about pro football): He noted that last week Flacco and the Ravens looked like they were trying to score forty points in a ten point game (sounds like somethin' a group named Flacco & the Ravens'd do, doesn't it?). I think he'd make a better offensive coordinator than some of y'all, who seem more concerned with fantasy results than losing one's grip on the road.

Nick Mangold hurt his shoulder.

I hope he gets Gang Green and his arm falls off!


Well why didn't you say so. If you and Warren Sapp said it, I'm all in!

7 point leads RULE!!!!

PS: Dan use a straw with prune juice, you don't want to RISK spilling any.

cuban m, you going for Pitt? where's hot ashely? i need an HA fix!

Your sarcasm escapes you. I think the Ravens'd be quite happy to go with the Dolphins' road strategy and results last weekend, given a second chance.

ODIN, did you try making out w/both sisters at the same time ? it saver that way instead of being shot .

And odinseye, are you aware of what typically happens to the Patriots in the second half of games, and why? Sometimes maddeningly boring is less maddening.


After seeing last weeks two fumbles, Dan doesn't even use a straw now.

He doesn't want to RISK dropping it.

WHOAA!!! Wait! Who cares about football! Odin made it with SISTERS?

Your sarcasm escapes you.

Again? I do have to keep an eye on him, he's a sneaky little Devil.

Well, if you happen to see him, could you return him or at least give me call and let me know. I'm going to be needing him again, REAL SOON!

i once had two sisters and slept w/both of them at same time but they got married to two good guys .i am happy for them .they still call me as a friend .nice to remember.

"How is Osama Bin Edwards," Good one Mark from TO.

Mickey Shuler Jr. Interesting pick up. His Dad was a heck of a TE. Hope the apple didn't fall far from the tree.

Aloco! You slept with your own sisters?????

Is it true JT WAS below average in playoff games in the years he spent w/fins ?

REDsky, funny...you catch every thing .

WOW! I can't believe Cuban M and Jot Ashley are missing all of this!!!!!

typo, Hot Ashley! sorry!

Aloco, glad you have a GREAT sense of humor!

Henne is everything a guy like sanchez, or NJ phin D-bag fan is not........ a non douche....A winner.


I got a sister kink, what can I say. It's always been like a genetically encoded mission in life.
At one time I was doing a couple of sisters and their Mom came home(I was young too-nothing sick or illegal) I ended up doing Moms on the way out. They loved hating me.
Oh well, being a Musician has it's perks!


The girl that shot me didn't really do it because of her sister. I didn't do her sister until way after that.
She shot me on "accident" or so she says.
I was showing her how to shoot a little .25 semi automatic. As she went to ratchet one in the chamber she was pointing it down(right at my lower leg)and already had her finger on the trigger. She squeezed the trigger as she asked me: "Is this how you do it"

Moral of the story: Women, Guns and Drunk retarded Musicians just don't mix.

Aloco, will your sisters sleep with me? I promise to make them multi-orgasmic!

ODIN!!! What a great story, glad she shot your lower leg and not your middle leg!!!LOL

ODIN, i am afraid your next post you r going to say i did the two sisters , their mom and the father on my way out .

redsky, i have only one sister married to a dentist fin fan .

BTW ODIN, any man says they do not have a sister (someone elses) kink, is a liar!

hhahaha, is this how you do it???

Take that!!!

ODIN, i am afraid your next post you r going to say i did the two sisters , their mom and the father on my way out .

Posted by: ALoco | September 23, 2010 at 09:16 PM

Aloco, come on man, why would I want to do my own Brother? That's just creepy!!!!

what brother, i meant their father

HOT ASHLEY! Where are you? We need to, err...uhmm, consult with you regarding these disconcerting topics. Cuban Menace, can we borrow her briefly, for consultation purposes only, of course!


It was a joke. If the Father was my Brother, then the two sisters would be my neices and the Mom my sister in law.

That would really be creepy.

Somehow, when I have to explain my jokes, they just don't seem as funny?

Oh well..........FEED the Be-atches!!!!

WOW! I think you guys discussion of doing someone's dad is about to make me up-chuck....be back in a minute.....

redskay, i was told that cuban is very liberal when it comes to women .he doesn't mind you or any one else to touch her .he eats a lot of pork which makes him not jealous about ashley .

ODIN, i got the joke but i didn't want to ask ,are you a red neck ?lol

ODIN, if I were your attorney

ODIN, if I were your attorney, I'd advise you to NEVER try to explain anything!

the vikings are the most tendered people in the old ages .they would come to a village and make love w/all women under kandle lights of course after all men are passed away naturally .

ODIN, are you a red neck ?lol

Only after a Hard Days Night ;)


You're hired.

I hope you specialize in Drunken Disorderly and Malicious Destruction of Property cases.

Aloco, some Scandinavians settled in Virginia and what is now West Virginia. If you visit the area you'll find some very Nordic looking people. I made a mistake once, I asked a fellow lieutenant from West Virginia if a husband and wife got a divorce there

odin, question...........who's the player who was known to date the dolphins cheerleader gris?

Some A hole was on here running his Pie Hole.

He said we hide behind our computers and talk sheet about the wets. He said we would never say it to their faces.

I don't know about you guys but I am not AFRAID!

If I EVER see Fat Rex in the street, I will climb his lard a s s like a tree and cut him down like LumberJack!!!!
