The name of the better QB in Sunday's game? Fitzpatrick

The enduring memory I have of Buffalo quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick is him getting around the edge of the Dolphins 2009 defense and running for a TD.

And as the Dolphins prepare for Sunday's game against the Bills, I am impressed that my trusty stat sheet that surprises because it says Fitzpatrick is a solid quarterback who border on being pretty good. He has 21 TDs to 11 interceptions. He's completing 58.5 percent of his passes. And his rating is 85.0.

Put another way, the Bills will start the best quarterback in the game on Sunday.

"I've been very impressed with him. I'm very impressed watching the film," Miami defensive coordinator Mike Nolan said. "I didn't know what to expect because I did not study him until this week. I watched him in the past a little bit. When I was at San Francisco and he was at Cincinnati we played them. And I remember watching him before the game in warmups and thinking, 'This guy is pretty good.'

"Watching the film I've been very much impressed. He's got great eyes for a quarterback. If he hears that he'll think that sounds a little strange. he does an outstanding job with his eyes. He does an outstanding job getting rid of the ball. He knows the offense. He plays extremely intelligent and what I mean by that is he doesn't have to stare things down to know exactly where people are going to be. I've been very impressed."

That is not all.

"He's very resilient," Nolan said. "He doesn't get flustered by a bad down. We've played a lot of good quarterbacks all season long but this guy's got my attention he's got the player's attention, too."

If any QB not named "Checkdown"Chad was the leader of the Fins offense---they would be playoff bound!Try thigpen.for example.

Ralph,

We saw Thiggy. It wasn't good. You can have him.

What I wish Sparano would do is what Ryan is doing. Give Henne public votes of confidence. Understand that you're in this one together. He's the guy you invested in for your quarterback. Live and die with him. Let him feel that your in the same corner.

Fitz has certainly been the juice for the Bills this season. That said, they are terrble on the road, have a lousy run defense and will do nothing on the ground vs Miamis run defense.
That said.....Henne could make it a laugher before half-time via countles stupid throws.

Rumor out there that the Cowboys are starting to look elsewhere, away from Romo for it's looking more and more like he isn't the man that can take them to the promised land. This could be big trouble for Miami fans as the practice has been to take all of Dallas" washouts, cripples, misfits and undesirables. Henning would be all for it and a great chance to dump Henne, whose incompetence is currently threatening Henning's job. It would also get Henne a new start to see if a different coaching crew could do something with him. Don't be surprised if a trade materializes! You heard it first here! LOLOL

IF Henne plays average we will win IF he plays like he did in jets games we will loose. If he sits on the bench we will win.IF henning forgets were the game is being played we will win. IF he shows up 50-50. The defense will keep the fins in the game but we are going to need at least 10 points from ole dead eye and no fumbles or int. I hope the fins win but when you look at Henne you have to be concerned.

I seemcnabb as starting qb for muami
