Henne: 'I need to push the tempo more'

Was it a Dan Marino performance? No.

Was it a performance that proves Chad Henne is Miami's franchise quarterback? No.

Was it a good outing for Miami's starting quarterback? Absolutely.

As I wrote in my column today, Henne was more a solution than a problem in Saturday's 17-13 loss to Tampa Bay. He completed 10 of 13 passes and showed good command in the face of an angry rush. He found Brandon Marshall. He showed trust in Marshall. He got to the middle of the field with Anthony Fasano. He was accurate.

But there is more that must be done. Henne knows this. The Patriots are coming to town. They are going to watch the job the Miami offensive line did last night and believe themselves capable of getting after Henne. And they are going to attack the Miami defense and force Henne to keep up.

As I told you last week, the Dolphins need to turn up the tempo. Last night, Henne talked about, guess what, turning up the tempo. He also discussed his ability to audible. Last year he had a chance to audible at the line on 'check with me plays," meaning he could pick from one play or another.

Now he can pick just about any play.

He also discusses here how far along he feels he's progressed as a leader.

Oh my god, someone told ALoco he was funny now he's created a LOL personality.

ALoco, dude seriously, a grown man with nothing better to do than come to blogs and impersonate 1,000's of different aliases is a really sick pup. For your own sake please seek professional help.

You arent funny, youre truly sick dude.

Jeff Ireland trades up to the 2nd round to take a backup RB.

I have never said anything about anyone here. Thats not the way we act up here. Just one of the few that really like the Dolphins.

ALoco,

The saddest thing of all about you is that you may never get help you need and seriously progress further into your sickness.

You arent a fan, youre merrily on your way to full blown psychopath. You only seek to hide in a football blog! LOL...

THANK YOU LOL, SHOWING AGAIN HOW MR FLIPPER, FLIP-FLOPS AGAIN AND AGAIN.,NOT SURE YTO CALL HIM FLIPPER OR THE EVERY REAY BUNNIE,HE KEEPS GOING,AN GOING AND GOING., THANK YOU LOL, YOU ARE A PATRIOT.

Hey, you have to admit some of this stuff is comical. I'd rather laugh about it then start cursing away. Life is too short. Be happy. I prefer to laugh and cheer whenever I can.

please henne lovers, its PRESEASON!!!, d byrd, craig and co. lets talk 2 or 3 games deep in the season... belive me i really want to be wrong...after all he hasnt have the opportunity of blowing out games in the fourth qr. , like last year... just saying

Barry Sanders was probably the greatest escape artist rb of all time. You could hold him to 40yds rushing for 3 3/4's of the game then he pops the 60yarder to go over 100yds for the game.

There's only been one Barry Sanders in this game. Even he couldnt run behind a poor run blocking oline. He just had the never before seen knack to break a big one no other back before nor since has had that ran behind a poor blocking oline.

But according to a certain idiot(s) Thomas is now a preseason bust becuase he isnt Barry Sanders. Will someone please tell the idiots we knew he wasnt Barry Sanders when we drafted him. Even the great rb's dont show thier true greatness until getting to the 2nd level.

With poor run blocking lastnight we didnt need a great rb. We needed a mechanical bulldozer! LOL...

DB,


YOU R A SMART GUY, CAN YOU TELL WHO'S THE FAKE ALOCO @ 4;17 PM ? I CAN TELL ,AND HERE IS A HINT ........................ (( ASHLEY ))

DB,


PLEASE MAKE YOUR POSTS SHORTER SINCE THEY JUST DON'T HAVE ANY VALUE .................

Sooooooooooooooo Sorrrrrrrrryyyyyyyyyy


O.D.F,

Why all bashing on me ? Sorry Bro, i did not post any of that. Whats going on ?


Mr. Oregon

Looks to me someone is just intentionally messing with you and you are taking the bait and feeding his game. Ignore it.

Had Barry Sanders played behind a oline like our 72 Dolphins instead of those awful Lions olines. He easily rushes for 15,000yds and that's at the point of his early retirement.

If a rb is consistenly choosing the wrong hole or not hitting the hole on time. Then he's a bust. Dumba*sses, a rb isnt a bust just because he's getting terrible blocking! LOL...

AM DECENT GUY, I AM AFRAID YOU NEVER HEAR ANY THING ABOUT BUT GREAT ,GOOD THINGS.................MAY GOD BLESS YOU AND YOUR CATS .

This Guy(Aloco)Is Truly GETTING VERY DEPRESSING TO EVEN COME TO THIS BLOG ANYMORE. I PROMISE I WON'T BE BACK UNTIL THE REGULAR SEASON BEGINS AND SOMETHING HAPPENS TO SHOW HOW FOOLISH YOU GUYS HAVE BEEN.

Posted by: DyingBreed | August 18, 2011 at 08:03 PM

Funny.Keep it up. DB, What say you about the The post from Aug 18th that you said you wont be back to the Regular season?Your Back.Flip-Floping again?LOL, Sorry bro, Couldnt help it.

Hey Lobos, mister arithmitic magician:

Henne's "typical" pass attempts will not be 13, but closer to 26, or twice your stat-rant.

Thanks for your calculations...sissy

Posted by: GulfDolphin | August 28, 2011 at 02:17 PM
============================================

This is the kind of nonsense I have to deal with on here.

TRUE: Henne's attempts are closer to 29.8 per game. Are you saying he was going to throw an additional 16.8 passes in the 4th QTR alone? Seems we are already down if Henne needs to throw an additional 16.8 passes in the 4th QTR alone. 16.8 times 4 is what? 67.2 attempts? That's 40 more attempts than you stated he throws per game.

Anyways, here is where he sucks.

32 games started at 6246 total yards is 195.19 yards a game. That average won't win nothing but the toilet bowl.

ONE OF MY FAVORITE POSTERS IS....FP4FGs

FP4FGs,

Why does it still feel like Im posting to ALoco? LOL.....

If you're not ALoco, it sure isnt what your ticket stub says! LOL...

Dying, Not Aloco, But I will say this is one of the Funnest MFers to post here, Almost as funny as Soiled Bottoms., Just Saying.

Barring serious injury to key personel, I expect a very strong 2011 Fins finish. By this time there should be much improved cohesion on the oline, with Henne, and the run game.

The D should be fine and I surely hope st's doesnt rear an ugly head this season. Barring injury as I have stated, the Fins should be in a playoff conversation. Whether we make it or not depends on the 1st 8 games win-loss record.

IMO a 5-3 1st half season record gets us in. I really look for this team to get stronger as the season grows longer and nearer to the end.

DB,


PLEASE MAKE YOUR POSTS SHORTER SINCE THEY JUST DON'T HAVE ANY VALUE .................

Good post and good advice.

LOL, DO YOU HAVE A POST ABOUT FLIPPERS POST AT 4:38* THAT MEKES HIM FLIP FLOPPING AGAIN, IM SURE THERE IS, FLIPPER, PLEASE CLEAN THYE AT POOH ON THE FORE OF YOUR TRAILER.

175YDS 1TD NO PICKS, DOES QUALIFY AS BOTH MARINO-LIKE AND FRANCHISE-LIKE PERFORMANCE.

IF THIS NUMBER LINE ISNT A MARINO-LIKE OR FRANCHISE QB-LIKE PERFORMANCE FACED WITH THE DIFFICULTY OF PUTTING UP THOSE NUMBERS. THEN YOU TOTALLY SUCK AS A SPORTS WRITER.

Posted by: DyingBreed | August 28, 2011 at 03:28 PM


I checked all the national newspapers, SI, ESPN1, ESPN2, ESPN International, and nobody nowhere cited Henne as Marino-like. So does this mean all the sports writers suck and only DyingBreed is correct?

KEEP YOUR FEET ON THE GROUND (preseason, o-line, secondary)

BUT GET READY FOR TAKE OFF, SEPT 12(Henne, and extra sticky new "WONDERCLEAT" footwear - anyone seen any of those big "j allen" slips- we eliminate them and we're turning out 10-6)

extrapolate these statistics

person A (e.g. los lobos) submerges head in bucket of water 3 times and takes it out twice

what happens?

person A starts having higher opinion of the mighty airbreathers!

Henne makes less than his back up Moore.
Henne makes less than his previous back up Thigpen.
Henne makes less than every QB in the division.
Henne makes less than his previous back up Thigpen.

They cut Vernon Careys salary to move him over to Guard and now they will move him back to tackle at half price!

Lydon Murtha was a 7th round pick of the worst Lions team in history and they released him, and so we pick him up to substitute Jake Long!

This is seriously funny.

Lydon Murtha couldn't even make it on the 2009 Lions hahahaha.

jEFF IRELAND RUNS THE DOLPHINS AS AN AUTO SHOP OR A GARAGE ...........................


THE NEW CONTRACT FOR HENNE IS IN THE WORKS .........LOOK FOR 9-12 A YEAR.

TWO WEEKS AGO, HENNE WAS ON THE VERGE OF BEING CUT!!!!


Do you think that we can wait a few REGULAR SEASON GAMES before we demand that he gets a raise????

(I hope that he continues to get better
each game too...and he very well may.)

But for the time being you guys need to relax!!


Remember....Pre season games are scrimmages with Refs.

They usually mean NOTHING!

Irelands first pick of the 2010 draft was a guy with fake bones in his leg, and he didn't even know about it!
