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."

Sam got exposed and beaten so badly he's resorted hair splitting and looking for typos.

Posted by: odinseye

Back. Now what did I miss? What did I get beat at?

ODIN IS RETARXICATED

KRIS...DID YOU NOTICE SELVA ?............. SPINSH NAME B/C IT COMES EASY TO HIS MIND .

LouD

Henne is in his 4th year. You can't just throw away the training and tutoring he had for that time.

There goes my guess...gotta be a live person. Must be some intern for the Herald

but,,,,BUT,,,,,BUT,,,,, the FO office should've signed someone to compete with Henne. AAANNNDDDD The FO and coaches NEVER should've started him as soon as they did. Henne had only been in the league one year and he was a second round pick, possibly would have lasted until the third if we didn't take him. The coaching staff should be smart enough to see which QBs need a little more time to develop. Henne should still be developing behind a vet starter. That was supposed to be Penny but he got hurt and the FO started rushing Henne in my opinion because of Parcells and his ego. Bill saw Henne as his next Phil Simms, even made comparisons. Much like he did with a lot of players they signed which was his downfall. Always looking to duplicate the past and never looking at the future of the NFL and where the game was heading.

So all of this bashing Henne is misdirected. We should be bashing the FO and coaches for not setting a plan and sticking to it. Aaron Rodgers sat for what, 4 or 5 years before he started? No one knew he would be this good and if he had started in his second season he might have been ruined. If Henne doesn't get better I blame it on the the fo and coaches.


Odinseye,

You really are retarded. Sorry, I can't help you.

Sam, how am I retarded? That's exactly what you just tried and I simply copied and pasted it for everyone to se..........oh, OH!

I get it, your embarrassed because you've been exposed, right, gotcha. I'll getcha agin too!

ROTFLMAO!!!!

Have I discussed little oscar "Meyer Wiener" with you?

IT'S NOt a robot ,HEARLD HAVE NO MONEY FOR THAT , NOTICE HOW HE COMES AT CERTAIN TIMES LIKE A CREEP .

Yeah, the random posters get pis*sed don't they? They don't comment all day and then they read one post and jump right in to defend a stranger they haven't even talked to, hmmmmmmmmmmm? What a waste of space.

LouD STFU

Are you related to LewD?

LOUD.... THE BEST WAY IS TO PRETEND YOU R BATMAN WHEN YOU POST HERE ...PRETEND IT'S ALL FAKE...YOU WILL HAVE A BETTER DAYS THAT WAY .

Aloco, I see that from that quick response from 'Selva' to Kris. My second guess is a unpaid intern.

Is LasciviouS your cousin?

henne is bad, its really very simple. we just need a new qb

Err, I'm cooking rice but I have never looked good in Blue.

Odin.....I think it has less to do with the points of the subject....and more to do with who's line of thinking is more like mine.....

I think right now were on differnt ends of the football spectrum...DIFFERENT....NOT OPPOSITE......

You are optimistic....and there is nothing wrong with that.....

Me.....I feel like I have been burned too many times this decade by my beloved FINS.....so I am cautious....and more in the middle......and I will need more than practice results to convince me other wise.....

So I salute your optimisim....and your optimisim comes without flip-flopping....which makes it even more impressive....

Me...i'll wait till 12 Sept......

NO COCJOE.... THEY WILL NOT ALLOW INTERN TO DO THAT B/C HE CAN TELL THE STORY LATER ...IT'S ARMANDO B/C HE CAN'T TELL ON HIMSELF .

Shut your PIE hole. You simple minded CHILD.

To you, LouD.

Kris,

The same thing started happening to me a couple of times too.

It was kind of wierd. Lets see, what was I talking about when that happened?

Dooh, what do ya know, I was talking about the same thing you were.

PS: Be VERY CAREFUL, some things are best left alone.......oooooooooooooooooooooooooooo(that's supposed to sound scary).....................

Hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm.....................

typo henne stinks. And not only will I throw away the tutoring he received from DAN HENNING but I will douse it in gas and set it a flame. That guy was the worst and anyone that argues that didn't watch the games and listen to the pressers the past three years.

It's all aloco posting these strange posts IMHO.

What did you copy and paste, odinseye? What did I say that was proven to be wrong or false? Please point out the time I said it so I can back and look at it for myself.

As it stands, you and fin4life have been shown to be, at best, misguided and, at worst, shall we say, emotional fanboys who change their positions like most people change their underwear.

One of you said we haven't drafted ANY QB's since Marino retired. ANY. Then one of you came back and said only name QB's that were picked rd. 6 or higher. Then one of you came back and said you'd only consider "non-gimmick" QB's. LMAO!!!!

Maybe you should do a little research and go read what Ron Jaworski said about Pat White when he was drafted, you hand-holding, duplicitous dolts.

Aloco, hate like hell to think it's Mando.

I can't wait until they come up with that new application for the net that disallows anyone under 18 in an adult chat room. At that point every chat will be separated between the adult room and the childrens room. You will have to sign in with a license or valid id to prove your age. Oh what a great day that will be, can't wait!

COCOJOE...........PRETEND YOU R BATMAN LIKE ODIN ...IT WILL MAKE YOU FEEL BETTER .

What strange Posts? Pleas, let me finish cooking my rice,

Henne doesn't have the "IT" factor. Plain and simple. Phins should have pushed hard for a quality QB.

Its coming, it's just going through the IRD for approval now, working out the kinks. But there are so many internet predators out there that it's being pushed heavily by the conservatives. Thank you Republicans!

OSCAR EATS LIKE A BIRD...HE ALWYAS EAT RICE ,CHICKEN AND PINEAPPLE .........

Pretend my arse.

I AM BATMAN!

You wanna be my Robin sweet cheeks ;P

I MISS READING 0X80........

Ahhh, the rice cooker it's a good invention.

Oh boy Odin, hahahaha, you're lol, oh man that cracked me up. You need to get some sleep bro! Cut that guy off! No more drinks.

Bye everyone, all 5 of you.

What are Republicans?

Ok guys, for whatever good it'll do, I asked Mando via email. Told him what's happening and ended it....'tell me it's not you please'.

You can't participate, Lewd.

Pencil boy looks like you are human after all. Fear, is a deteminant factor to the decision we make because of the clear consequences. Supporting your citys team is your number one prioroity and hopefully you uderstand that your role is huge in steering the thoughts of others. Play fair and I'll be your biggest fan regardless of your message. Fair is how we should treat people so congratualtions on your report.

Tori

Feel like I'm in a episode of the twilight zone. Maybe when I wake up tomorrow........

Come on Sam, your twisting and spinning is getting old and it's getting you nowhere. It ain't no fun either.

Everybody already saw this, but I'm going to repost it one time and then I'm through with your delusions:

(this is just one example of how you try to "operate"-LMAO):

**RETARD ALERT**

Check it out. This duschebag is so stupid he copies and pastes me twice saying the third year is the make it or break it year and then CLAIMS that's what he was saying all along-ROTFLMAO.

What an idiot, read on:

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


Second, that's not what your original post said, now is it? You said almost all QB's make massive progress in their third year (especially the "good" ones, right?).

How convenient of you to now clumsily concede that the third year can be their "break" year, which is what I was trying to convey to you

Posted by: Seminole Sam | August 10, 2011 at 08:18 PM

I didn't concede anything, I explained it to you three times and THEN YOU claimed that's what you were saying all along-Got it?


Odin,Why all the hate tonight?, Outta beer?LOL

ODIN....PLEASE QUIT WRITING THESE CRAPY POSTS LIKE @ 9;12PM....TELL US A FUNNY STORY ABOUT THE FIRST TIME YOU HAD LOVED SOME ONE ,REAL LOVE ......

I'm not gonna lie I was hoping for another qb to come in here and give Henne a run for his money but right now he's the hired gun we have so we might as well support the guy through the season and if he works out then we can use next years draft to fill other positions of need. If he doesnt work out then we draft a qb. I understand the frustration as I have been frustrated with Henne too but it's time we all just quit bantering him and start showing him some support I'm sure he could use it right now and the team needs a confident strong headed qb to lead them not one that has to second guess his every move because he may have to hear fans chanting another qbs name that isnt even on the team. He's all we got lets rally behind him!

What is fear?

Ahhh, the rice cooker it's a good invention.

Posted by: oscar canosa | August 10, 2011 at 09:06 PM


After I'm done cooking, it's great for little oscar "Meyer Wiener" to get his work out with.


Odin,Why all the hate tonight?, Outta beer?LOL

Posted by: FP4FGs | August 10, 2011 at 09:14 PM


All what hate? Sam was trying the twister game so I tied him in a knot.

Now that you mention it, I am running about a 12 pack low. Worry not though, I've got a remedy for that.

I just remembered I got chased off Lake Superior by a storm the other morning. Didn't even have time to break open the bottle of Bourban I took.

BRB, I'm heading out to "raid" my tackle box!

ValHalla!!!!

Oscar, I always work out at night.

LOL At odin, You go Boyyyyyyyyy!

Hey Odinseye,
Here's your original complete post, you Liar of the Ages.


**********************Repost*******************

So, even though almost ALL QB's, especially the good ones take a massive step forward in their third year, you believe your piece of shyt opinion is great, even though you base it on something that happened in the past. Not just the past, but SPECIFICALLY the young QB's second year.

So even though all your wisdom and logic flies in the face of conventional wisdom, you think your opinions are well thought out-right?

Hmmmmmmmmmmmmm.................I suddenly realize that you calling me a dullard is MORE than just a tad bit hippocritical!

ROTFLMAO - D-U-L-L-A-R-D!!!!


Posted by: odinseye | August 10, 2011 at 06:12 PM

I don't see anything in your post, Odinseye, about "make or break". All I see is the "make" part (i.e., the massive step forward) for "almost ALL QB's". I'm saying I've already concluded that Henne is a bust/dud. You were clearly implying that odds are he'll take a big step forward.

The tricky thing about this posting thing is that it keeps track of what you post, you lying clown. What a glutton for punishment you are!

LMAO!!!!!!

No reflection on any other reporter, but I miss Edwin Pope. A very measured man, good writer and always willing to partake his information about the Dolphins(even Shula's fight with Joe Robbie). Most of my knowledge about the Dolphins has come from him.

Wow

LouD

You really are out to lunch. The QB coach and the veteran Pennington tutored Henne since he arrived.

You in desperate attempts to dig up another exucse want to through away Hennes 4 years and call it 1 and a half years. Doesn't work that way.

Odinseye,

Just read your post about the beer. Hope it eases the pain of my 09:20 post. Now "spin" and "twist" your way out of that, Mon Frere!

This really is too easy. Maybe I should call it a night?

Aloco,

I'm in real love right now. She's an adorable little Blue Eye'd Blonde(again).

Don't worry though, this ones not after my money(wink, wink)!

She's kind of Sassy and tries to be High Maintence, it's cute. When she doesn't get her way she actually pouts and gives me the silent treatment.

I tell her I can't stand it when she gives me the silent treatment, but actually it works out quite well(if you know what I mean).

She's precious like a nik nak. I want to keep this one as long as possible.

Barfight!!!

OSCAR ALWAYS LIVING IN PAST, DIDNT HE WRITE IN THE 60s OR SOMETHING,LIKE 50 YEARS AGO, OSCAR MUST BE 75 AT LEAST.

the only thing everybody has been talking about is chad and the offence. how about are defence? we will be at least a top 5 defence and that alone makes me want to watch. with what i believe will be an improved offence and a much improved defence, i can only be excited about this season.

Go away Sham-
I do not like green eggs and ham, I do not like them Sam the Sham!
