Henne wouldn't change anything about time with Dolphins

Chad Henne is the opposing quarterback this week so he was on the conference call with the Miami media today.

What did he say?

Well, he's not necessarily super fired up about facing the Dolphins and exacting a measure or revenge against them for not re-signing him and instead moving on to another quarterback. At least, he's not admitting to that.

"I don't know about motivation but once it comes toward game day there'll be a little bit more excitement and everything," Henne said. "Other than that I'm going to prepare like any other week and go into it like it's a regular game."

Does he have a bad taste in his mouth about how things went during his four years in Miami did he accept his situation without anger?

"Absolutely. I mean, they gave me every opportunity," Henne said. "They drafted me there and I appreciate that. But, um, sometimes things don't work out and you move on. But, uh, definitely feel I had my fair share and appreciate the opportunity down there."

So what would Henne change about his time with the Dolphins if he had the chance?

"Obviously, you want to win more games," Henne said. "But, um, whether I would have, woulda, would of, should have,I really wouldn't change anything. It was a big learning experience I had there. I enjoyed my teammates, enjoyed being part of the community down there. I just took it as an experience and built upon it and improved myself as a quarterback and as a young man."

Henne has completed 51.6 percent of his 182 passes for 1,217 yards with 8 TDs and 5 INTs.

"I think I've improved. From last year the first three games, I felt I've improved," Henne said.

The Jaguars are having problems with drops, having problems with protections and Henne is missing throws. In other words they look a lot like the Dolphins did with Henne. Actually, in many respects they look a lot like the Dolphins do now.

Apparently, Henne has been keeping tabs on counterpart and replacement Ryan Tannehill. So what does he think of Miami's starting quarterbacK?

"I think he's done a great job for what he's been given," Henne said. "I think he's done well, he's handled the media well. I just wish him the best and hopefully he keeps improving."

[Practice update: WR Davone Bess and OLB Koa Misi sat out practice today. I'll update their injuries later.]

Hell, I'd go all the way to Boston if ALoco promised to be there. Or Florida is oscar said he'd come.

I want to put this puppy to bed once and for all.

By the way, didn't say Home, because I could care LESS who Home is.

Home is probably ALL 3.....

but I get what your saying...

Fire Jeff Ireland. That is the remedy to all of the Dolphins' problems.

Tom me it's about putting faces to names I've been in some serious debates with over the years. It would be fun and if there is one thing a group on here can do it's debate Football so we need to make it a game worth attending especially if some will be making a trip to be there.

We could also make it training camp 2013 giving us a shot at scouting the incoming talent and hidden gems also the progress with others like R.Jones who I saw and felt seemed primed to make the jump. I believe he may quietly be the unsung hero of this Seasons D and definitely one of it's steadiest players.

We played the NFC West this Yr. and last Season we played the NFC East. The Yr. before in 2010 we played the NFC North with the Favre game early and then the debacle Thursday night game with Pigpen at QB.

So next Yr. we get the NFC South with 2 out of 4 played in either Atl, Car, N.O. or Tampa all within distance for me. These will have to do given the other Conference match up in 2013 will be with the AFC West given we got the South this Yr. and the North last Yr. and I'm not going out to Oak, S.D. or Colorado. If not am with DC I would go to Boston if Aloco promised to be there.

Im in for all those games barring a scheduling, issue.. thank you to the ones who gave our family well wishes, we appreciate it. hope to be back talking to you all tomorrow.

Guys I'm in for a game too. Pretty sure Mark would come down. The way things are going I expect him to have his own private jet soon, as long as he doesn't spend it all at the 'Downer.

Just don't like some of these other guys on here know. They'll be looking to shoot the plane down.

God speed poizen!

Poizen,

Best wishes from Canada too...hope the news is good.

Mando, your title is purposefully misleading. Henne said he wished they had more wins. That's a change.

DC, if you could care less, that means you care at least a little bit, since there is room for you to care less.

Jacksonville Hennes: 31
Miami Philbins: 20

Bet on it.

This entire blog is out of touch out of towners! LOL Clearly, everyone in Florida hates the hapless Fins.

JC @5:20,

TROLL ALERT!

Not everybody in Miami has jumped on the HEAT bandwagon and forgotten that this has always been Football Country through it's roots.


The accomplishments of the Hurricanes aren't lost on people either and that mostly Fr. and Soph. team will be relevant again soon.

This is a show me now town and unfortunately we haven't been able to put a product on the field that was Champ. caliber in sometime. That aside what we have is a jaded fanbase but fanbase non the less! The empty stadium is a swipe at Ross and his weak ownership more than anything else.

What we are not is a Baseball town even with the heavy Latin population. The 97 team was put together to win and I was there opening day with about 4,000 other spectators. It was worse in 2003 during the 2nd run after the All Star break brought another title home and have yet to waste my money on the Stadium they put up at the OB sight which NEVER OLD OUT, NOT ONE TIME before the dismantled another team.

The Fins will be back and packing the House like they did for a couple of decades with every game sold out. We didn't stop selling out really till last Season even though the Home Faithful knew we weren't going anywhere. Your very post suggest your the out of towner with little grasp on the local Sports scene.

fin4life, get a clue bro. The Fins will NEVER pack the house as long as Ross/Ireland are in charge. They wont have 20,000 there on sunday. LOL

I don't have much to say about Henne. It is what it is. He's no longer on our roster.

We have to get behind Tanny now and hope he continues to progress.

I am a little discouraged though with Philbin's attitude about free agents in Barry Jackson's article today.

I get building through the draft and not overpaying for players but i think you upgrade your roster anyway possible. I mean Vincent Jackson would look very good in a Dolphin uni.

At week 14 I still can't get past why this group didn't draft a WR before the 7th rd or sign a decent one in free agency.

They look to be a good coaching staff. We've had a chance to win most every game we played this year.

It seems like if we were more aggressive about addressing the weak spots in the line up we might be winning some of those close games.

Of course I guess Philbin hasn't waiting for 15 years to root for a decent football either. C'mon already!!

Thats what Henne said to the media, but just like most players he definitely wants to beat the Dolphins, and show them they made a mistake in giving up on him.If you were in hennes shoes would you say, I am looking forward to playing my old team and I am going to make this a statement game to the QBacking ability of Chad Henne, or something like that.In 2012 these players are very good talking to the media and protect their teams(coporation)image and are very diplomatic about what they say.The players that dont adhere to these unwritten rules when dealing with the media will get in trouble with the coaches such as Chad Johnson(his release also involved an alleged crime.

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

THE CURE FOR ALL THE DOLPHINS ILLS ..........

Tannehill did 2 things in 12 starts that Henne couldn't do in 4 years. Lead a 4th qtr comeback & throw for 400 yards. So lets quit comparing thw 2 until after Tannehill's 3rd year.

TURD........

HENNE'S RATING IS....98

THE (( COMEBACK LIKE MARINO )).............MY FOOT.......

WELCOME TO BOSTON ,,,,,, WHERE SANE PEOPLE AND SMART FANS LIVE ,NOT LIKE THE BROWN DONKEY DASHI.

so much overanalysis, as usual......literally every start, every game there seems to be a different opinion about Tannehill (and others)--Scheftee "isnt sold" on him (but why should we care what he thinks?)--of course he isnt sold on him, because he needs more time and hasnt proven anything, but why is that news?--he is a rookie QB so we already know that.....why stir the pot with obvious comments?--uh, are we SURE about Wilson?--positive?--SURE about Kaepernick?--no doubt?--now Foles is the man of he week--Kiper thought Tanny was overrated earlier, but then reversed course a few weeks ago and said he was better than he originally thought--overanalysis, every day.....bunch of hystericall nancies--gimme a break--give the kid some time and some weapons.....then decide.

Da s h i t the ultimate troll, what douche writes using exclamation marks and CAPS excepts a little girl looking for attention. Dashi gives us a favor and eat a d I c k. B I t c h!!

Henne wishes he won more games in Miami big shocker there. Feels he had every opportunity and I agree with him.

Moore, Bess, Hartline. Been here forever, never scores TD's. Ireland=Bust.

BP I agree it is time to shake up the WR's and cut some bait.

My Offseason

Our FA- Sign Smith(we have too many holes to let him leave), Hartline (Bess is a weaker link than Hartline and should be traded), and Long (He should be more reasonable on his contract than everyone thinks, plus he is still very good). The rest need to be shown the door

FA- Sign NY TE Martellus Bennett (yes a former cowboy) and he replaces Fasano.

Draft (including an extra 3rd for Bess)

1st- CAl WR Keenan Allen (I think we overdraft him a little based on position)

2nd- NC OG John Cooper
2nd- NC State CB David Emerson
3rd- LSU ILB Kevin Minter ( an impact player that we lack)
3rd- OS DE John Simon
3rd- Texas WR Ryan Swope
Rest is BPA

Henne threw the ball to the wrong team all the time. In 3 years with Miami, he had TWO decent plays I can think of. One, he threw that bomb to Ginn on MNF. Two, he had a cool QB draw from about the 10 yard line and scored vs. New England in the Benny Sapp game. TWO good plays in three years. Sad.

Hey Nat Moore are you #89 (Nat Moore)?

gotta sign 1 impact FA, which needs to be a WR or TE--rookie receivers usually take time to adjust, sometimes a season or two, so probably not an immediate impact--but a vet like Bowe or Wallace or whoever is provides immediate impact--then draft another WR and a TE, wherever it makes sense--our 1st and/or 2nd round pick should be a CB and pass rusher.....should start right away.

gotta sign or draft an elite QB in the offseason.

There is no elite QB in the league that wants to throw to our WR's.

How many more years without a playoff team?
1
2
3
4
5
>6?

Pick a number

We'll have a chance at the playoffs 4 years after Ireland is fired...IF we hire a top GM.

Oh no, the Texas A&M OT is the #1 rated player in the draft. Here comes Ireland.

Dolphin fans have such a low opinion of Tannehill that they're afraid RoboHenne will beat them. LOL

1030-1132 = same no life loser, someone needs attention, want a hug? im giving out free hugs. did you know a study was done and babys that didnt receive love and affection from their mothers grew up more likely to be a) criminals b) depressed c) insane d) divorced

have fun ;)

DC I am cracking up over your post at 3:19. I have felt the same way many times. And WE have caught a few people making mistakes and proving they aren't real.

What drives me crazy isn't the fact that they post under different names but that they CHANGE THE WRITING STYLE AND PERSONALITY from name to name. Like it's some comedy club but they're telling jokes to only themselves. Aloco is a fictional character. The person does not exist, it is a character in someones bizarre play. I have taken him to task many times, he ignores any and all real questions. I believe I know the regular who posts under that name but I won't say anything. We caught him a year a go, red handed.

So posting under multiples while mildly annoying is actually just cowardly. Never backing up your predictions or opinions, never having to admit you were wrong. Just really cowardly. You have to almost feel sorry for people who are so scared they hide themselves in an anonymous blog.

who is Aloco phins78?

And along with fin4life I would like to attest to being a real person too. I know because I pinched myself and it hurt.

But seriously I was once NYScott, I changed to LouD because of harassment and then again to Phins78 for the same reason. I am also one of about 4 of the old crew that posted a picture for everyone to see. Nothing to hide and most of you know my style. I can get fired up but like to think Im objective and rationale for the most part. And when I'm wrong I own up to it . When Im right I sometimes rub peoples noses in it but hey no ones perfect!

Been contributing since 2004 by the way. And lastly Marc,,,,,MARC! Where the f%$ are you at? Anyone remember Marc? I think he was a cop or something, used to crack me up. You still here man? What about FLPD, you still around?

Guys about the game, I'm in, let me know where and when. It would definitely be fun to meet you knuckleheads! Lets make it happen. Good night all, peace.

Oh before I go, I never do this but the Henme loving idiot is killing me! Prediction, Miamis defense is going break Henne in half. That is all.

I'm real and I don't feed the trolls. I think my football opinion is not too out too lunch. I play alot of Madden and Tim Bowens is probably my favorite Dolphin ever. That guy was a beast.

The dolphins will suck for the next 6 years

Just to clear some stuff up.

Am I to believe the problem with Tanne is his receivers? If that is the case, then we have the worst wr'ing corps in the NFL? Because Tanne ranks way down at the bottom of the list.

Okay, who's fault is that? Who's fault is it that we have the worst wr'ing corps in the NFL? Again, JUST BECAUSE YOU LIKE TANNE DOESN'T MEAN YOU HAVE TO LIKE IRELAND.

Changing GM's is the only thing we have not tried yet. Am I to believe NO ONE is to blame?

Ireland has at least one more year. Ross is so stupid that he thinks this year showed promise.

I say by October 13, 2013 we will already be eliminated from the playoffs.

Even Mando would agree, no way Ireland survives another year. There is no way unless Ross is just a vulture capitalist filling his rank and file with "yes" men like Ireland.

PS...I think we have already seen the BEST of Tanne. I don't think he will grow much more than what we have already seen.
