Henne: He's up, he's down, he's up again

Chad Henne was good again Wednesday.

No, I'm not going to write a daily report on his progress or lack of it. But I am somewhat committed to reporting how the Dolphins starting quarterback is performing when he does something of note.

And just as Sunday was noteworthy for Henne's fine play and Tuesday was noteworthy for his not-so-fine-play, Wednesday was another day on top.

"In the last four practices I’ve seen him make a jump," coach Tony Sparano said. "He’s practiced pretty well."

Henne on Wednesday completed a nice deep ball of 25 yards to Brandon Marshall during team drills. In team red zone drills, he dropped in a nice 5 yard pass to Anthony Fasano that was just out of reach of linebacker Koa Misi. He was generally accurate throughout the day.

Sparano, aware Henne has no real competition for the starting quarterback job, believes Henne can still improve despite not really being pushed by backup Matt Moore. 

“One thing I’ll say about this guy is during the lockout on, he’s been really self-motivated," Sparano said. "He’s done a tremendous job that way. The challenges of the new system and him keeping up with that system and having command and being in command, that challenge has been good for him."

Notice whenever Tony says how great a player is doing, how well they prepared (Gerbil Wilson for example), it means they are trying to trade them or cut them.

Now he is saying he is impressed with Henne only after they missed on Orton.

NEW YORKERS ARE THE BIGGEST PHONY ON EARTH .

RIGHT ABOVE MASSACHUSETERS WHO ARE SECOND PHONIEST

Now he is saying he is impressed with Henne only after they missed on Orton.

Right, again. Sparano was very non-committal for most of the off-season, now he feels Henne's the next coming of Joe Willie. Gotta love it!

PHONIES

Now that they switched from Pepsi to Coke at the team facilities, I really think Henne is going to have a break out year.

Odin is the smarter guy .

Just so were clear......that is not THIS Kris......

and while I disagree with Seminole Sam's dismissive assesment of Henne....(i'll reserve judgement until Sep 12th....around Midnight)....

I do believe that Sam is making the better argument.....up to this point.....

FAKE ALOCO @ 7;37

We have the only fan base in the country that goes into celebratory mode when their starting QB completes a pass in practice.

Ugh.

How amusing that S Sam, an obvious Jet fan, is getting all of you riled up!!

BIGGEST PHONIES;;;;;

1-NY
2-RHODE ISLAND

We also have the only fan base in the country where a QB is dismissed immediately for not being a Marino...

ALoco - you will leave my sister "tube of glue" alone.
Do you hear me?

1-NY
2-RI
3-FL
4-NJ................PHONIES

Certainly there is no blood in Internet, ALoco; but if you have the Tools you can annhilate a person more thoroughly than in real Space. Believe me.

robbyhernz

He is dismissed for going 1-7 at home, 0-3 against piss poor teams. You may say its not his fault, but he was the one the coaches benched twice last year.

1-MA GAY

Fake me talking about you two

i am not kris who has a blue name and sound angry all the time .
valla

GO PATRIOTS............

Many here want to believe it wasn't Hennes fault.

Ok.

But....

The coaching staff sure thought it was his fault. Only player to get benched all year.

On another topic........

Have any of you ever been in a locker room surrounded by male athletes right after a long hot practice. Oh, so sweaty. The smells, the sounds...

sorry, where were we?

Tell me something new, ALoco.

For the past two years I have listened to ex-QBs, Scouts, Coaches all people who ACTUALLY HAVE BEEN IN THE NFL, all state that the QB position takes 3 years, or 48 starts to properly evaluate. Then I come here where a bunch I'd dudes who spend their time either playing Madden or playing with themselves pronounce themselves so much smarter. Sorry, I will take the NFL guys over a bunch of fry cooks who probably failed gym in High School, much less ever played a down of football.

go away sick f_ck.

FIN4LIFE TURNS FROM BEING THE FOUNDER OF THE GANG OF FOUR TO BE THE VOICE OF REASON AFTER READING DD'S POST TODAY .

OMG, Aloco, Another "Gang"?

OSCAR...PLEASE GO MAKE ME SOME MINT TEA......

Ugh.

LOL! You're killing me!

It's just that hopes springs eternal in the preseason. It makes a lot of us forget about what we've witnessed previously, you know, like when the throws actually mattered in a game and Henne threw the ball DIRECTLY a defenders for pick sixes. I'll be the first to say I was wrong though if Henne can get it together. Need I say I'm not holding my breath?

"Seminole Sam", this is the last time I'm addressing you. Do me the same favor and please stop talking to me. You started with the insults and talking down to people and you have now ended the same way. Have a wonderful night.

I have a right to speak my mind.

Nahh, poor Lou doesn't have a chance in this Blog among all these very sharped-teeth Cubans.

Seminal Sam. Please do hold your breath then you could not see your keyboard after awhile.

bobbyd12 you have no mind. just bitter hate and disrespect. we remember you.

Even though my posts are weak.

Hi folks!

Lets keep it civil. Taking a peak to see how my bloggers are doing.

Any football questions will answere in the next 20 minutes or os, I'm all yours.

Armando, The Amigo

ARMANDO SHOULD COME IN AND INFORM HIS FANS LIKE S.SAM WHO'S A JET FAN LIKE ARMANDO TO LEAVE THIS SITE ........


WE SHOULD DEMAND FROM THE HERALD TO HAVE DB OR ROB IN OC TO WRITE FOOTBALL POSTS ABOUT OUR BELOVED DOLPHINS .THE IQ WILL SHARPLY GO UP IN HERE .

Any switch hitters in the NY area? Want to give my wife a special birthday present.


I'll give you one. Ever heard of Pat White. Memba him?

I said Seminole Sam because -

1. I suspect you're not the sharpest knife in the drawer and that you need LOTS of repetition to retain information (as evidenced by your not even remembering P. White. My condolences).

2. you clearly had me mixed up with someone else.

Seminole Sam | August 10, 2011 at 07:25 PM

I really was done with you until I noticed this little self explanatory nugget about your Football acumen. After the 2008 Season Henne was firmly entrenched as the team`s future. We drafted GIMMICK Q.B. Pat White to run a WC 2.0 if you will and add the element of the pass to the formation, much like the Jets did with BRAD SMITH or was SMTH a threat to take the Q.B. job from Sanchez at any point.

The fact that were discussing which Q.B.`s have been drafted to be the team`s future since Marino`s retirment would have you mention a player who was brought in to play in a specific GIMMICK set to the conversation says one of two things either your reaching or simply don`t get it. My thought s your just a F`n moron looking to get a rise out of people for your amusement in any event I`m done with this. You win Parcells drafted Pat White to be the face of the Org. and Future Franchise Q.B.

ALoco, I humbly admit that I don't know how to make any kind of herbal infusions. I knew how to light them, though.

Wish Mando could invent a device to block Jet fans from ing ring out blog!! Imagine a blog without Seminole and Judge....

Seminal Sam. Please do hold your breath then you could not see your keyboard after awhile.

Above is an example of a stupid post.

What about getting back up that is pretty important right why aren't these guys thinking about that!

Team meeting @ 8:30pm tonight to announce a new personel development/signing. stay tunned. My guess is T Barber.

"For the past two years I have listened to ex-QBs, Scouts, Coaches all people who ACTUALLY HAVE BEEN IN THE NFL, all state that the QB position takes 3 years, or 48 starts to properly evaluate.

Hilarious! LMAO! You're making my side hurt! Please stop it!!

Now that we have that out of the way, I respectfully submit to you that you can't get "all" NFL types to get a consensus on much of ANYTHING, much less state unequivocably that they "all" refuse to come to a conclusion on a QB's potential until they've seen him in 48 starts. Ever heard of, for example, JaMarcus Russell?

You, kind sir, are the clear winner of the MAPOTD (most asinine poster of the day).

Aloco, There's "The gang of defeat","The Donkey Brigade", and "The Marinated acorn gang" now your telling us there's a new group?, "The Gang of four"? Sounds exclusive, Who's in it?

I'M JUST WONDERING WHY THERE ISN'T A QB COMPETITION BETWEEN HENNE AND MOORE. IF MOORE PROVES HE'S A BETTER QB THAN HENNE IN THE PRESEASON. WHY SHOULDN'T MOORE GET THE STARTING JOB. WHY IS IT WRITTEN IN STONE THAT IT'S HENNE'S JOB NO MATTER WHAT.

Oc looked in the mirror lately

Why is it that Aloco and this new person "WTF" are the only two who write with the caps lock on?

Aloco either that is you or some coward is using your cap lock thing to make it look like it may be you posting. I believe it is a coward who likes to post under multiple names because the grammar is different and the only time it posts is when it is mad at me. There are no other posts from it on any other subjects.

So WTF, whomever you are just ignore me, I'll do the same to you. Now you can go back to posting under one of your other aliases. Hahahahah what a loser.

MARINATED GANG OF (((FOUR))) DONKEYS..........

WTH do you mean that my posts are weak, oscar canosa?


odinseye,

Way to not answer my question(s)!! You get an A+!!

-OMG! I answered the question, your just too stupid and negative to get it.

Your premise, as best understood, appears to be that Henne, like "almost ALL QB's" will make "massive" progress in his 3rd year.

All quarterbacks, even the ones that don't win playoffs and Superbowls make it or break it in their third year.

What part of this does your blind ignorance not get?

I'm saying to you, you dunce, that this statement is wildly inaccurate, especially as it applies to "almost all QBS".

-I'm not used to dealing with this level of ignorance. You are amazing in your own "SPECIAL WAY".

Do you need me to name some people on the long, long LIST OF THE QB'S THAT DIDN'T GET BETTER IN THEIR THIRD YEARS?

-Save it PLEASE. These are the QB's that never "get it". Come on now, you know what I'm talking about. Then again, maybe not, you seem to be an expert at not getting it.

Are you even remotely aware of the FACT that the list of QB's who don't make it is far more extensive than the list of those who do ("Pat White, calling Pat White"!:for example:)

-This seems to be the point you miss the most.

You lack of intelligence is only surpassed by the total inability to recognize same.

-Your doing a bad enough job discussing QB' and now you're going to judge someone elses intelligence? I guess it is true, ignorance is bliss. You go Bu-oY!

Wait...wait for it...wait for it...

LMAO!!!!!!!

Since Marino we've had Fiedler and that's it. Since then we mortgaged our future picks time and time again, all for naught. Try to stay with me Einstein. For almost 10 years, all those free agent QB's have cost us to much and caused us nothing but pain and suffering.

Finally we use a 2nd round pick so we can try and develop a QB. You know, the way the sucessful teams USUALLY do it. Henne's had his two years to get it. It is now sink or swim time. This is USUALLY the point you can really find out if a QB is a keeper or not.

But no, because you are so GD stupid, you want to pull the plug and start all over again-REGARDLESS.

Forget the fact that we really don't have any other options. Lets be too stupid to see it through and find out what we really have-Duh.

Hey, Duh, I know, lets give up some MORE draft picks and mortgage our future for some other cast off or some other guy that hasn't even proven he's as good as the guy we got.

Why worry about drafting a QB next year, or any other positions for that matter when we can spend up our picks this year on some of the same old same old garbage retreads we've been investing in for the past 10 years.

You go ahead and keep on LYAO in your jovial ignorance.

BTW, I noticed you didn't answer fin4lifes question. Nice, and you accused me of the same. I think the best advice you can get is too take your hipocritical trolling ignorant ass and jump off the nearest tall building.

Your all bullshyt and spin, ie: Not one bit of substance!

Have a Nice Day Troll!!!!

LOUD STFU

oscar, you are weak.

A punky bruster type probably.

LOU D. WHY ARE YOU SO SCARED OF CAPS. DID YOUR MOMMY YELL AT YOU WHEN YOU WERE A KID.

Oscar I don't stand a chance? Bwahahahahahahahahahahahaha. Great post. You're right, how could I possibly match wits with the witless.

Mando, haven't heard much about Hartline. Supposedly put on some weight.. How's he looking so far?

LouD...

There are maybe 10 real posters on this blog...maybe 10.....

The 90% are the Aloco Character....if you see a strange name..its Aloco...if some one throws insults at you for no apparent reason...its Aloco....if you see your name impostered...you guessed it...its Aloco....

Pay attention to the post...and not just the sign-in name....you will begin to pick up similiartities and patterns.....

Nahh, I don't look in the mirror anymore. I value my looks. Hmm..

Mike G -

go sit on a stick.

ROFL Oh boy, look I got someones panties so twistedd up that they posted under my old name in an attempt to, I don't know, make me mad? Over someone on the internet?! Priceless! hahahahaha
