    A rotoworld report states that marshall and thigy changed plays in the huddle to take more shots at marshall in single coverage, while marshall is taking more shots at henne. its fair to say henne is done for sure!

    this isnt varsity blues. marshall changing plays without the coachs permission wont last long.

    henne is under contract and thigpen is not. to say henne is out of here is a little premature.

    We might never know what Thigpen was, he wasn't given many chances here even with Henne stinking up the joint. Further if henne's progress was curtailed by the offensive coaches imagine the potential for thigpen's growth had he had the right coaches.

    Marshall just liked Thigpen more because Thigpen had the sack to do what Marshall wanted him to do and go against what the coaches were saying. I'm not saying Henne is or was the answer but if what some of the stuff Marshall, Ricky, JT etc. have said is true then I really don't know how any QB could succeed with this current coaching staff. You can't make your QB afraid to throw bad passes and tell them to avoid an int at all costs. You know what that does... it makes them throw more bad passes and interceptions because now they're playing scared and making nothing but "safe"/short throws but the opposing defense sees this and takes that away so all of a sudden you have nowhere to go with the ball because your QB is taught to not take chances. Henne was being a good little soldier and trying to follow what the coaches wanted to a T, it's what he had to do to keep his job, but it was probably the worst thing for the team.

    I can see us using Henne as trade bait. Lets face it guys, he screwed the pooch for us this year, but he is not as bad as a lot of people say he is. Given the right system I believe he can be a solid QB. And I gurantee you that there are other teams out there that think the same. He just wont work out here because he won't be selling any tickets. Henne won't be in Miami in 2011, but he does have some trade value.

    What a load of crap - BM likes Thigpen because he listens to him - this coming from a guy who leaves multiple plays out on the field each game - what a diva... Someone should put Henne and BM in a tiny room until they kiss and make up...

    It was Henne who said it ws a "Good ride" or to some effect I think he knows changes are coming either for him or the team but you people who think any QB can play under these kind of circumstances are fooling yourselves yuou don't know jack about people.

    Teams hire sports pschologists when situations like these arise... Confidence is a big part of the game...

    this thing between marshall and thigpen, is like a couple of kids acting up on the last day of school. they dont care about the repercussions because they know they will have a different teacher next year.

    All Marshall wants is the ball and he would make a case for any QB that throws him the ball no matter what the end result. Not the most analytical way to judge a QB.

    I remember reading some article a couple weeks ago, Henne saying "You do what your coaches tell you." I'm not sure why this guy is believing all this "Play Scared" **** that the coaches are throwin at him. Henne should know by now that playin checkdown ball isnt going to keep him as a starter for long. IMO I think Henne has a ton of potential. A good arm, decent accuracy when he can get locked on, and knew (before he regressed) when to throw it away. His instincts as the play-hungry QB have been neutered by this coaching regime, and I pray that our next OC and hopefully new QB coach is going to redeem him and bring out the best in him. Not to mention have him learn from a vet who can sling the ball, unlike Pennington. I have all the respect for Penny's football smarts and what hes taught Chad, but its also come at a price. Henne needs to play his game.

    Thigpen I doubt is starter material. A playmaker Vet, Henne, and Thiggy/drafted QB is my QB roster if im Fins.

    Marshall to Thigpen: "I will chill with you on Mortensen's bus next year if you stop listening to the coaches and just throw me the ball . . . you see where Henne is for not listening to me". I wonder how Thiggy felt when Marshall caught the first one and then, in typical Marshall fashion, dropped the next one.

    Henne was in a tough spot all season, Dan Henning was a cancer, but even if Henning is retired, it may be too late for Henne. He is better than what we saw this year, I am certain of that . . . but I don't know if his future is in Miami. Definitely want him back to compete with whoever we bring in for QB. Nobody has never needed a new OC/QB coach more than Henne.

    LOL! Wow, people getting on Marshall and Thiggy for changing lousy Henning plays!

    Well God bless them for having the gnads to take charge. These are players with high football IQ's that understand how absolutely terrible Henning is.

    If Sparano would have had the gnads to do this, there might not be a coaching search going on right now.

    Kudos to Marshall and Thiggy!

    He probably felt fine bacause Marshall caught the 35 yarder and felt fine again when they got the PI. I don't think Thiggy would be upset about throwing to a guy where 66% of the time it is a very positive gain.

    There is no way Henne can comeback next year, the relationship between he and Marshall is beyond repair.

    Thigpen threw it up top and high a couple times in the Pats game so Marshall could go after it. I saw that more in 1/2 from TT than I saw from Chad all year. TT at least knows how to throw the ball so Marshall can use his advantage. TT plays smarter than CH IMO.

    If Harbough is hired, Henne could be his favorite alma mater quarterback. Kinda goes along with Ireland's total power and domination over the Phins.

    could care less about what Pinhead Marshall has to say. Go out there and make some damn plays and earn your contract or just disrupt as usual
