Henne vs. Newton Friday night (on TV)

Rookie first round draft pick Cam Newton will make his first professional start against the Dolphins in Friday night's preseason game at Sun Life Stadium, various media outlets are reporting.

"It's pretty much following the line of what we had planned throughout training camp, and that's to go back and forth and back and forth with our guys," Panthers coach Ron Rivera said. "It's a good opportunity."

That means its Newton versus Miami's much-hyped defense. That means it's Newton versus Chad Henne, who will start Friday's game for the Dolphins.

Rivera said his starters are expected to play about a half.

Coach Tony Sparano said Henne would start and play along with Miami's starters as deep as the second quarter. We'll see if the coach goes with his starter that long if Henne comes out hot and drives the Dolphins to a touchdown on his their first or second possession.

At that point does the quarterback's soaring (for the moment) confidence mean more to Sparano than mere snaps in a meaningless game?

The coach said Matt Moore would take second team snaps for the Dolphins versus the Panthers, with those likely coming no earlier than the second quarter.

We shall see.

Update:

Reggie Bush will make his Miami Dolphins debut (at least his preseason debut) on Friday, Sparano confirmed. He will start and rookie Daniel Thomas will also get work with the first-team offense.

Sparano said he had an idea how many touches he wants to give Bush but would not say because he wants to tell the player first. "I want him to get up a good lather," the coach added.

The Dolphins say the game, which is Miami's home preseason opener, will be televised locally. The game will be broadcast on CBS-4 in South Florida.

Armando, did you hire some new posters? Well, get some other ones because they are still arguing with each other.

I would love to see the PHINS to trade for Matt Flynn. I will send Henne Merling and a third rounder I think that's is a trade you just can't give, first they need a DT and Henne as a backup!!

My bad stupid auto speller!!! That's a trade you must do for Flynn!!!

theres a pretty nice 8:40 long highlight vid of moore on youtube that i was just checking out and man this guy seems real comfortable tossing the ball deep/long gaines, he had smith but i like what i see, if henne gets benched or hurt, that might be it for his game. digging this moore cat.

They have an auto-speller? Hell, I didn't know that.

No way GB is going to part with Flynn, ray. Rodgers is not a big guy and he is a mobile QB.

My I touch will change your spelling to something close to what your spelling automatically!! I know you f u c k in around dude!!!

No doubt about it, jak. Why all the mistery? Everybody knows that Moore is the better QB.

Yes, but never with senseless insults, ray.

Hank Goldberg is just a fat Greg Cote.

Nevernever with the enthusiasm of a Jim Mandich.

Armando, what happened? Did "somebody" lean on you or was it your own initiative?

to BE OR NOT TO BE .................

MARIA ..... I LOVE YOU ....

It can be ascertained that no more secrets exist in Real Space.

Yup.

As they need complete absence of information it can also be said that Conspiracies are passe.

Who is Fergie?

It was explained to me that evn if u wre to get haf da letrs rigt, most peple culd read wat yu typ witout hestant.

Here's my prediction:

Miami 30 Panthers 17

Spell check that!

Bobbleheaad, I agree, Jim Plunkett was considered a journeyman QB, a backup not a star, and he took the Oakland Raiders to 2 Super Bowl wins! A great comeback story, and guess what, he's not in the Hall of Fame, Dolphins QB Earl Morrall, took that team while Griese was hurt, to the playoffs, he was Farve's age at the time, that's our undefeated season, Morall made it happen! I'm not sure if he's in the Hall of Fame either! Shame!

Sorry guys! My post ran amok!

i have already mortgage my house on the patriots for Monday night, before the point spread moves from 5 to 10

Monday is going to be ugly, but I will cherish the demise of the monsters who have built my dolphins into the Empire of Dirt.

This will tell me everything I need to know. If Cam comes out looking better than Henne then Henne needs to go.

There is absolutely no way Cam should be able to move the ball but Henne can't.

This is Henne's 3rd or 4th season. No way should he come out looking like garbage and Cam comes out looking like Dan Marino.

for all you homers that don't remember the glory days watch "my empire of dirt" on you tube.
I find my self happy when f**** robohene throws a pick six. yes that is sad!
But we aren't going back to glory days with parcels clowns.
Everybody knows it, the only reason there's positive spin from the media is to help sell tickets. But come monday night, the pats will put us out of our misery and hopefully be the begining of the Andrew Luck era.

We are the clowns of the NFL. How sad is that!
comment on that armando!!!!
Chad Henne will go down as the worst QB in miami history!!!
So I say start his dumb ass so we can go 4 and 12.
Suck for Luck!!!
Hell yeah
This is the first year in 20 I wont be buying season tickets or going to games.
Ross is either very smart (Luck) or clueless.

Better Armando, uh?

I don't think Cam can do well against our Defense. If he does, hold on League!

These next 2 pre_season games will point out many things about the Dolphins to many People, including LV.

Nah, I don't bet on Football. The only reason I bet on Horseraces is that, through experience, I can more or less tell which horse is in condition to run well.

WOW!!!

I JUST FOUND THIS MIAMI DOLPHINS SITE.

I WON'T DISRESPECT ARMANDO AND POST IT'S NAME.

HOWEVER IT FELT GREAT TO READ POST FROM TRUE DOLPHIN FANS.

THEY DIDN'T TRY TO BE NEGATIVE AT ALL.

EVEN WHEN THEY COULD HAVE BEEN.

THEY SAW THE GLASS HAVE FULL WHILE MOST OF YOU "ARMANDO" LEADING THE WAY

HAVE NOTHING IN YOUR GLASSES.

IT'S BEEN FUN.

ARMANDO

KEEP UP THE HATE.

IT WORKS FOR YOU.

I'm hitting you with a lot of good posts, Armando. How about some Season tickets? jeje

Yeah, Justin? where is it?

Kim Bokamper is as colorful as a blank page.

Who is Fergie?

one must remember mando isnt a dolphin cheerleader or just to follow blindly the ireland/sparano doctrines. mando is a reporter who has to hold the regime accountable for their decisions. questions need to be asked and answered from this secretive regime. most of the players have been brainwashed and turned into robots by now. channing was a breathe of fresh air in a stagnant org. which is poorly run by a parcells appointee who should be held accountable for the mess he created.

Even in this Day and Age Radio is still important.

As I have nothing to do today I will listen to the 3 Amigos and continue to hit Arrmando here. Yes?

Me no unnerstand the rednecks talking there.

I told you before that Miami is getting cleaned up.

I'll take Ireland over that looser GM that went to Seattle...what the heck was his name again?
the guy we had with Wannastache?
Anway, those two had the some crappy drafts and and are the ones who put our franchaise in the ditch.

Please NHF, don't mention Spielmen(he of Wes Welker fame).

Ok half empty gang....look where we were just a few short seasons ago.

1-15 and the laughing stock of the NFL

Parcells bought respect back to our team and I for one like what he has done.

He was always a Defense First kind of guy and look at us now...we have built a top 5 defensive unit that will be around for a long time.

Offensively we have talent, but this unit needs to bond and become a tight team that has each others back.

Once our O-line gets set and Tony stops the shuffle, we can establish that long awaited running game that sets up the deep ball to Marshall.

PATIENCE my fellow Fins Fans....we are very close to making that leap to the next level.

Also meknows that Rednecks will not understand Cubers talking either.

Internet is a great live Equalizer.

NH.. Nice post.

I will not give Fatcells any credit, since he was brought here to be a Messiah and he ended up being The Fatshite.

But I agree on this year. We need a perfect storm of things to happen,

O-line really good, RB's hold up and move the sticks. I am not worried about Henne, with Time he has proven to be good.

And the D needs to get off the field and make plays.

It seems the players are there... Just hope the game plan, confidence and effort will be there.

If so,.... good season ahead.

OSCAR,


HOW YOU KNOW WHICH HORSE WILL RUN FAST ? BY LOOKING IN HIS EYES ?

henne henne henne henne lol

justin, who is going to be the 1st lemming over the cliff on that fins site u be talkin about huh.?.lol

Supplemental draft set for Monday. Wondering if guys know much about Caleb King and if he's worth drafting. What would it take? A third? A fourth?

Anyone know much about the two defensive backs too, Torez Jones and Tracy Wilson? Thanks.

aloco, do you speak yiddish?. u r like a fart in a blizzard.lol

aloco, do you know why lemmings jump off of cliffs?.
every few years a toxic weed grows on that land area and they get all lsd'd out an they try to fly. no bull. google it.lol

STOCK MARKET DOWN 500 POINTS......... BACALA

The Parcells philosophy has, perhaps, brought a top five defense. I'd say top 10 until they stop someone on 3rd down but that's splitting hairs. My biggest gripe is they have seemingly ignored two of the potentially most prolific positions in modern day football, QB and TE.

cm. has any sup draft player ever do anything in the nfl.? or just bums.?.

Please join me for this day of Urine Festivity!

Show a little bit of maturity. The team has enough of a bad rep already around the league, lets not pile on by looking like a bunch of immature fans.

Thanks for the reply, Datajack.
We all know this kind of ignorance (Urine Festivity) is lacking deep help with life issues someone has to be facing. Wish they would find the counseling section where they really belong.
Now - back to real conversation .. Dolphin Football!!

aloco, spend all of your food stamps before the asteroid hits in 2012.lol
aloco, have you seen obamas pix on the new food coupon, sort of like b,frank on the c note huh.?.lol

Chris, good points...Instead of Ryan and Flacco, we got Henne...Instead of Rex Ryan, we ended up with Sparano...Parcells is overrated...Jerry Jones knew what he was doing when he told him to get the heck out of Dallas...And now we're getting all his failed rejects in Miami...Thanks Parcells...Shula can't stand him and neither can I...

623. the d is all nolan imo. not fat tuna.
