7/9, 180, 2TD'S. Happy to see him do well
The game is on here. I'm interested in seeing how the Cecil Shorts TD came about because I missed it, but the Marcedes Lewis TD was an incredible play by Marcedes. Henne looks like...Henne.
EDIT: They just showed the Shorts TD. Little WR screen, Shorts broke the guy's ankles and ran all the way for the score.
Also interesting to see the leading rusher is Parmalee, 2 dolphins from 2008 could pull off a nice upset.
Henne: "what the? why aren't there defenders draped all over my receivers?"
This is the kind of game Henne could have against us in a few weeks if we're not careful. He's not playing any differently than he ever did with us, just limiting mistakes and letting players and scheme work in his favor.
I doubt this is the start of something new for Henne however I hope he succeeds in Jacksonville. He always seemed like a good guy.
Another pass td by Henne! Glad to see him doing so good! I hope he ends up being the starter in Jacksonville and goes on to have a good career. Always rooted for Henne.
I thought Henne showed tremendous progress last year under DaBoll. He averaged 7.8 ypa and 7.7 ypc after basically having to install the offense himself in the off season due to lockout. Two of Henne's picks were forced throws at the end of games when most QBs aren't willing take the chance and hurt their stats so they dump underneath for an easy completions. He also played against two of the toughest pass defenses Miami played all year. I think Marshall dropped 3 or 4 TD passes, but that is just what Marshall does. Dropped several for the Bears this year too. Said in the off season if the Jags give him a chance he has a good chance of becoming a top 10-15 QB. Good to see him having some success today.
Of course, most of the fan base soured on Henne heading into last year, which I actually had as well, and watched games with anti-Henne glasses rather than actual play. Kind of the reverse of what is happening right now with Tannehill. Henne plays well and it was everyone else who played well, not him. Henne can do no right. The pass hit him in the left shoulder pad rather than the right shoulder pad.... Tannehill plays poorly and it was everyone else who played poorly, not him.
Well all of us want Tannehill to be the golden boy. We dont want to believe that we whiffed on yet another QB, we don't want to believe that we whiffed on yet another 1rst round draft pick (top ten I might add). So of course a lot of us are going to be stubborn about Tannehill until he utterly completely just fails. I don't see a superstar QB in Ryan Tannehill but I do see a QB good enough to put up some big time numbers and get some wins for us. Think Joe Flacco, Josh Freeman, Andy Dalton. I think that is the tier that Tannehill will end up in. If we quit hoping for Dan Marino 2.0 or the next Tom Brady we will probably end up very happy with the final product that Tannehill becomes.
Sadly I see the same in Chad Henne. I see a QB that is good enough to start every Sunday in the NFL. I think Chad Henne can do what Matt Shaub has done in Houston, and again thats pretty the same tier QB as the guys I mentioned above.
AND Damn me for not benching Reggie Bush in place of Larod Stephens-Howling in my fantasy league!
We are so going to lose to the Jags...
He just threw a beauty into double coverage for his 4th TD of the day.

Yeah the Joey Harrington effect on Thankgiving in Detroit.
Oh my goodness.. here comes the We shoulda kept Henne posts soon
I still dont think anyone could have succeeded at QB with our WR's, and our former coaching staff though. So, I woudlnt be surprised to see Henne turn it around. Surprising though he's having this kind of a game against that Houston defense.
He put the ball where it needed to be and his targets went out and made plays in ways they can't in MIA
That was the best day of my life. I was there with my brother (a bears fan) and my friend and his dad (both lions fans) Everyone in that place was booing Joey. By the end of the game I was lauging at every Lions fan in that stadium
That was my first, and still only live Phins game
Right. Anyone think Bess or Hartline would have come down with that last pass around 3 defenders and turned it into a TD? Or is it more likely that they would have ended up on the ground with an INT going the other way....
Interesting what a guy can do when WR's make plays for him. I'm happy for Henne. He deserved better.
It's amazing what an average QB can do with good weapons.
Yeah being from MI the Lions are my 2nd favorite team until they play the Phins then it's on like donkey kong...surrounded by Lions fans ragging on me..Ford field playing piano man...awww it was great..
Since when do the Jags have good weapons?
Well they must right? It couldnt be Henne. lol
Glad he's having a great day. Enjoy Chad!!
Its one game. Everyone has a good game eventually. Joey Harrington did also.
Since they drafted players in the first round. Lewis and Blackmon are both 1st round players.
So what's the excuse the rest of the year when Jax averaged 14.1 pts/game?
Good Lord you dont think we know this? Can you just allow people who thought highly of the kid as a good guy enjoy him having a great day?
Blackmon was trash before this game. Lewis was the only weapon.
Shorts has been all right for most of the year.
Let's see if Henne can drive for the win in a minute and a half. They need only a field goal.
Looks like Henne will get a chance to prove himself when the game is on the line, the time when he most struggled as a Dolphin imo...God that sounds all too familiar.
Gabbert is Jimmy Clausen bad. I'm amazed he lasted the first quarter of the year.
Cecil Shorts has 5 TD's this year. Compared to Hartline who has 6 in 4 years. Blackmon was a top 10 pick.
Wow this will be interesting. I have no stake in it one way or another, but curious to see if Chad can pull this out...
I called Henne average. Gabbert is garbage.
And he throws short of the first down... Deja Vudoodoo
Didn't get the job done.
