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."

Wow. So you're saying that you showed knowledge of football when you stated that "Almost all QB's take a massive step forward in their third year..." when the truth is that most QB's do not. You really are delusional.

Btw, I have noticed that you haven't been able to successfully refute even one football-related point that I've made. You look like a fool, Odinseye. Maybe, just maybe, it's because you are.

Internet tricks? Hookin' online?

DB...WHERE DID YOUR FAMILY CAME FROM ?
SOMALIA?
SARILANKA ?
THAILAND ?

WE WANT SANCHEZ, WE WANT SANCHEZ, WE WANT SANCHEZ! LOL...


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.
xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
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.
xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
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!!!!
xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
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.

Seminole Sam | August 10, 2011 at 08:59 PM

I`m going to take the time to answer each and everyone of Sam`s statements regarding me from paragraph two on were he refers to Fin4life (Sam enjoys refering to self in the 3rd person)

1) I`ve been shown to be misguided and at worst switch my position like some change there underwear, hmmmm?? Alot of people on this blog have had civil converstions with me regarding my position on Q.B. and while not all have agreed with me they know I have always kept to a certain mind frame. I wanted a Q.B. in the draft but wasn`t sold with the talent at the top although I thought Keap intriguing and during the draft started liking the risk factor with Mallett circa Rd.3 When it didn`t happen Liked VY as a FA because of the NO RISK OR COMPENSATION VS. REWARD FACTOR. When that didn`t happen understood who the Q.B. would be and hoped for the best or at least be competetive while we waited on the 2012 draft for our guy, period everybody knows that I`ve stuck to this line of thinking.


2) You refer to me directly in the next paragraph and state a bunch of nonsense really. I asked you what Q.B. besides Beck had we drafted to lead the team into the future. You said many. Now here is were your ignorance shined thru because anybody with half a brain would have understood I meant a high pick worth our time because of potential, not a bunch of projects with little to no chance or GIMMICK player who was picked to be exactly that or don`t you remember the Q.B.`s Parcells has had thru his career to get an idea of white was destined to become the next Ray Lucas WR/QB/ST, Orlando Scandrick ring a bell. On this point your either very dense or had no argument so your pitching for arguments sake and I`m not buying. By the way Quincy Carter was not his pick and Bill cut him after one season in which he already had Testaverde waiting in the wings.

3) You say Jaworski thought he could be a Q.B. good for Jaws he joins Gruden in a very select group who do. I watch alot of NFL Net and there wasn`t one and ESPN was a big zero on that front as well. I read countless publications that said why draft him with a proven commodity like Vick due to be free soon and that was my thinking there as well.

You resort to alot of name calling and inults since you started this BS a few hours ago basically talking in circles, which only shows me your a coward. See we keep it simple here don`t go there and try and respect because as MEN we know there is a code and we can`t see each other face to face on one of these. If you want to prove me wrong and are in Miami let me know and we can arrange something as well, hope this finds you PUNK!!!

Mama HO-
That Chinese woman is a cleaning lady. I don't think she cleans tricks poles.

Seminodinsameye - stop it!
Can we just get along?

I have lived in my dad's basement since 1972. I have absolutely zero knowledge of the game but if I am on a blog all day writing that H enne stinks, people will think I am important and know what I am talking about.
I really am a worthless troll

fin4,

Please direct your comments at ALoco. Seminole Sam is ALoco under a different screen name. Dont you know the guiles of the ALo-con-us by now? LOL...

Everything I know about football came from my days of picking up and sniffing jock straps after the team was done with practice

My favorite is Chinese beatch dipped in wanton soup.

Why even bother with toilet paper? I just wash my hands afterwards anyway.

I was with a Chinese guy once but he had a limp noodle

fin4,

After tonight you may never see Seminole Sam again in this blog. That's how it usually works with the ALoco characters.

First day in the blog they pick fights and talk like theyve been here for years, then next day suddenly disappears never to be heard from again. LOL...

Fin4life,

You and Odinseye have a bad habit of writing complete and utter nonsense and then attempting to weasel your way out of it by saying, "Well, you should have known I meant high draft picks" or "Well, you should have known I meant make or break". Give it a rest. Both of you were taken to the woodshed tonight. Say what you mean and mean what you say, dweebs.


Can we just get along?

ALoco- quit teasing me! I am the voice of reason.

DB'S FAMILY IS FROM SRILANKA ..........

Oh well, this is more fun than arguing with Sam the Sham, Joe Blow me, and Fried...what a bunch of losers today!

Sam,

To even consider anybody besides Beck or Henne were DRAFTED HIGH to be traditional NFL Q.B.`s is what`s nonsense. Nobody has taken me anywere I think my points are self explanatory, ask anybody who read anything I posted. If anything your the one with a serious Reading Comprehension Disorder. I at not time have procclaimed Henne or any other member of our Q.B. staff to be the teams saviors and have on many occasions expressed my disire to draft somebody next year something we haven`t taken seriously since #13 retired it`s not my fault if you can`t get that, I`m done with you please don`t address me anymore in any shape or form unless you want to take this in a different direction and then I`m game!!!!!

Wow. So you're saying that you showed knowledge of football when you stated that "Almost all QB's take a massive step forward in their third year..." when the truth is that most QB's do not. You really are delusional.

Posted by: Seminole Sam | August 10, 2011 at 10:14 PM

From Football Statistics which has graded out every QB in the last decade:

"As you can see above, rookie QBs face a tough learning curve, and it takes 3 years for QBs to really get the hang of things. They then continually to progress until they hit their prime in the 5th-8th years, and then slightly decline for the remainders of their career. I stopped after 15 years of experience because only Brett Favre and Vinny Testaverde played more than 16 seasons during this last decade (and both played 20+ seasons). The one outlier year was 12 years of experience, with Rich Gannon in 2000, Brett Favre in '03, Todd Collins in '07 and Peyton Manning in '10 all posting QB ratings above 90. However other than that year the curve is pretty well defined "

So now you little beatch, whose your daddy??? LMAO

Tom Brady: 'We Can't Afford To Make Mistakes And Get Behind Because We're Already Behind'

FOXBOROUGH – Yesterday I wrote about how the New England Patriots' offense, in terms of being game ready, has been way behind the defense in the early stages of camp.

As it turns out, I'm not the only that has noticed this trend. Asked if he has concerns about where the offense currently stands, quarterback Tom Brady confirmed that he does.

“There is a lot of work to be done, in all honesty,” Brady said. “We missed a lot of practices this spring, we missed a lot of practices this summer … We can’t afford to make mistakes and get behind because we’re already behind.”

So how does the team come out of this?

“Guys are going to have to do a lot of extra work, seeing the tape, listening to the coaches, spending extra time in here studying, understanding what they have to do.”

And what about wide receiver Chad Ochocinco, who has had trouble catching the ball his first week in camp?

“He’s been in one offense for a long time,” Brady said. "To try and come to a new offense and learn everything we do – formations, motions, details of our route tree – it’s challenging for anybody. To do it on short notice is another thing. But he’s working hard at it and we’re working hard to get on the same page. We’re making improvements, but we still have quite a ways to go.”


WOW! SEEMS EVEN THE PATS AND JETS ARE HAVING EARLY PROBLEMS WITH COMPLETE OFFENSIVE CONTINUITY TOO. IMAGINE THAT FIN NAYSAYERS? LOL...

Wow. You really are a glutton for punishment.

NOWHERE does the above state that "almost all QB's take a massive step in their third year". I don't see anything about the drastic improvement that you clearly suggested and your article fails to mention. You fail, Odinseye. LMAO!!!

I'm clearly your daddy and what's sad is that you like it and continue to show EVERYONE on the blog that you're a fool who overstates the facts.

Posted by: Ching Luan | August 10, 2011 at 10:37 P


ALoco, I close in five minute.
What is order please?

Here's the problem with drafting a QB. If you spend a 2nd round pick on a QB, you're really pissing in the wind. It's like you want a 1st rounder, but you don't have the balls to spend a 1st round pick. Picking a QB is risky, and better to waste a 2nd round pick instead of a 1st rounder. So you pick someone safe in the 1st round (Jake Long) and risk a 2nd rounder on a QB (Henne) so if he flops it's not such a big flop.

The problem with this thinking is you only really will get a franchise QB in the 1st round, and upper 1st round at that. Check the history books. Drew Brees is the only 2nd rounder in modern history to become a star. SO you MUST take a risk and draft a QB high to get a franchise QB. Of course many flop and make you look like an idiot, so it's a very real risk.

The only way we'll every get a franchise QB is to grow some balls and take the risk. This next draft should be our time. Our team is pretty well built, and there will be several good choices. Just do it! Even if we have to trade up, just do it!

ALL OF THE HENNE BASHING AND ITS NOW TURNING OUT THAT NEARLY EVERY NFL OFFENSE IS CURRENTLY HAVING CONSISTENCY PROBLEMS DUE TO THE CBA SHORTENED OFFSEASON. LOL...

Where are you seminole sammy?? Football Statistics, who actually did studies and know something about football, just threw your whole Bullsh@t argument out the window. Just goes to prove how little you actually know and your another M.O.R.O.N who makes stuff up here and believes it's actually facts. What, because you have DirecTV you think you know it all??
Your Tribe musta put you on the short bus off the reservation huh??

Posted by: fin4life

Wow, again. Are you really suggesting that Gruden and Jaworski don't know what skills a traditional QB needs to have? From what I've read, Pat White's problems in the NFL were mental. And why does the pick have to be higher than rd 6 to really matter? Wasn't Tom Brady a 6th round pick?
