    Alrighty, 1st half is pretty much over.
    We are winning, yep, but it seems a product of our fired-up defence and some good running between the tackles.
    Our Henne has not showed much...lots of "off-target" throws and a few hoppers.
    Underthrows & Overthrows...ugh

    Come on man, show me something.

    Show me we did the right thing by giving you the chance to lead this team.

    It's early yet, but gimme some hope man.

    not to mention no pocket awareness and rushing his throws when he doesn't have to, and running into a sack.

    but it's the first half he's ever played.. so no time to judge him yet.

    To be fair this thread shows a lack of class.

    This is why Finheaven is going down hill because there are to many posters that don't know **** about what they're talking about.

    Most QBs don't play very well in their first NFL Start. Why the **** would that be any different for Chad Henne?

    I hear ya, keeping my fingers crossed for the 2nd half.

    Did you notice his vision though? He is not "staring down" anyone. going through the checks properly, good stuff there, but can't seem to get his accuracy down just yet.

    First start, cut the kid some slack. He has not looked overly impressive though IMO.

    like I said, what good is a strong arm if u have no accuracy... No be honest though, I am a lil more impressed with henne this game than any other game.. but he left atleast 5 passes out there on the field before half time.. IM excited to see him come out after halftime.

    i agree.over the middle and the straight take offs are good.plus they have good coverage.he lead them all deep so only they could catch the ball.the problem is on the out routes.he is short arming the ball.he is to worried about a pick.strange calls for the wrs routes from henning.very nice throw there on the out-better. it was a timong route thats why.he is doing fine .

    Got me there.

    OK, i can get into this a little. This is his fist NFL start. This isnt Madden, and it isnt fantasy football. The guy is feeling his way through, on what may be an average offense(w/o the benefit of a go-to receiver), ad you're upset because he isnt showing you what you want to see. What would you like to see? How did John Elway, Troy Aikman, and many other HOF calibur qbs look in their first nfl starts?

    Give the guy a chance. If by week 7-8 you havent seen improvement, by all means show your lack of faith. but seriously, let the guy get his feet wet. Your FO believes in him, at least give him the benefit of the doubt.

    The past few weeks, this great site has been harder and harder to handle. there is WAY too much kneejerking. that is all.

    He isn't playing any worse than Pennington played the first few games. At least Henne is getting his much needed practice.

    I agree with all that you say.

    See? So much easier to discuss civily. You may get frustrated with 'fairweather fans' (of which I am NOT), but I am glad that you turned down your agression. At the end of the day we are all fans, and have no right to jump on any post by telling the poster to "STFU".

    Tuchdown HENNE!!!!

    What you were expecting Henne to come and go 33 for 33 w/ 900 yds and 17 TDS? If so, I have to ask... What color is the sky in your world?

    edit: 12 for 19 for 102 yds and a TD mid way through the 3rd qtr is decent.

    I really feel that Henne is going to be real good for this organization. For as good as it was to have Pennington mentor him, having Henne be the starter with Penny there for him on the sideline for him will be even better. If he can manage the game the way Penny did, but add his gun to the equation, we should be better off long term.

    Looks good to me! He should have been the starter the entire season. We would probably have a few more wins.

    Give the guy a friggin break!! This is his first start! You always seem to have something negative to say and talk about others lack of class. You should check yourself before coming on here and spouting off like you do. Like I said give the dude a break, Rome wasn't built in a day.

    We are winning the game aren't we??

    Have you seen the rushing game? Henne did'nt have to do much. Henne + 0 int + Dolphins win = Job well done.

    I agree, Henne played well. But it was the 28th ranked D, let's see him against the Jets #3 D (as of the 3rd game).

    henne does need to enhance his pocket presence so he won't get sacked as much

    Almost a 64% completion rate and a 92 QB rating, sounds like some one last year!

    I'll admit I have been one of the biggest skeptics when it comes to Henne. Today he played much better then I expected him to! Once his pocket presence comes around, his sacks will go down and will make defenses pay for their aggression. All and all I would give him a B+ for his game today. I will give the rest of the team an A+, way to rally around him! To me it was early on after jumping off sides on the punt and giving Buffalo a first down, they didn't collapse and they got the ball back. I knew right there we were going to win!

    Been saying I've wanted him in there all along. Not trying to dis CP. Love what he did for us, but so sick and f-in tired of mediocrity, I mean no one here thought wede go to the Super Bowl w/ CP right. And not to sound like a dic*, not saying Henne will. I'm just glad were giving him the shot now rather than another year knowing damn well CP aint our future. I'm thinkin a year under center will give the FO an idea what we have and whether or not we need to draft another QB. All this fill in QB **** takes its toll. Wheres Marino?

    I've been living the Dolphin dream as long as some of you, longer then some, and not nearly as long as some of you old schoolers but its been a long time since I've at least felt MAYBE we got a QB for good. At least for one week I can go to work thinkin were on to something!
