why do I feel Henne is being over coached? whenever he attempts a pass that he has been told requires "touch" .... I sense a momentary pause and then an unnatural throwing motion that reminds me of a guy at the bar playing darts after one too many beers .... these receivers are being paid millions (aloco will have to verify the exact numbers) to catch the ball ... I don't read where old man Farve is throwing too hard for his guys ... he just lets it fly .... with mustard ... I agree in smart QB play, but think this touch thing is out of hand ... I'm not saying let Henne play recklessly, let the kid wing it (intelligently) and let the receivers catch it .... on first watch, I counted at least five throws that fell into this category (touch) that ended up incomplete or thrown into a poor position ... when he makes his decision he should just rip it .... PS don't run the wildcat more than once or twice a game ... it is a drive stopper ... PSS "Bono" is not getting it done with the special teams ....

kyphinphan, you're right ... use of the wildcat is very similar to the BB decision against the Colts ... you have to pick and choose your spots ... and make a decision based on the game situation ... I watched that Pats game (hoping they would lose) and BB was in a bad spot ... his defense was spent, his offense was probably not going to get but a field goal, and Peyton was moving at will ... and would have taken the game ... as we saw on the horrible Monday night game vs the Dolphins ... actually it was a great game (I've watched it many times) ... the result was horrible ...

Avid reader, you may be right about keeping a "fall guy" on the staff, but I think Sparano has a lot of respect for Henning and his long history in the league .... he does make some great calls, but at times gets too cute for my tastes ... he would probably call it pushing the envelope ... I call it unnecessary ... particularly when the base offense is grooving ...

what's the feeling regarding Dan Henning ... should he have been kept for another season? I've spent the last few weeks re-watching the 09 season via NFL replay and I'm stuck at the second Buffalo game where the team steamrolls down the field ... has the Bills unfolding the white flag ... and before they can surrender, Henning calls for a wildcat pass with RW inside the ten that is intercepted and it's downhill from there ... kris' posts (and others) about the wildcat (wildpat and sometimes wildcrap) have brought back the unpleasant blood pressure rises I feel every time Pat White trots out onto the field, or Henning interrupts a seemingly unstoppable base offense driving down the field, with a "cute" play ... it really pisses me off ... I agree we should keep the wildcat package ... but use it only in very select circumstances ... and forget the wildcat passing inside the red zone ... drive the ball in ... or let Henne throw the damn ball ...

should have been a class action suit ... fans robbed of McDuffie catching third and long passes and more Dolphin wins ... playoffs etc....

the amazing numbers on that page are not the uniform numbers, but rather the numbers in the age column ... 58 players 26 years old or younger .... the Dolphins are a much younger team ... but still with incredible experience sprinkled throughout each of the positions ... should be a fun year!

why continue to harp on the failure to draft a free safety .... the majority of these guys take a year or two to develop into a starter .... the team drafted one last year and developed him thru the season and now in the off season ... he will be more ready to take over the gerbil's spot than anyone they could have drafted ... Ireland has made it clear Clemons has everything they look for in a free safety ... and now has a year of experience under his belt ... trust in the Trifecta! trust in the Trifecta!

time for another junk play Henning ...

replace Pat with Pat ... the WhiteCat just doesn't do it .. take away one run and it has been abysmal all year ... a fifth receiver on game day would make better sense to me ... keep White on the bench unless Henne goes down ...

let's see how Teddy does with a quarterback who delivers a completely different ball ... maybe he will click and blossom with Henne ... kind of like with music ... sometimes guys who are both talented just aren't a good fit .... wouldn't that solve a few of today's problems ... if we don't have our dreams, what is left?

spot on message Armando ... hope the powers to be hear it loud and clear ... Ricky was primed for a big game ... and they should have gone with the hot hand until it was stopped ... that said ... the hot hand will be different each game and is Dan's responsibility to identify it and exploit it ..
