Eye to eye, ending the Henne vs Pennington debate now.



Ok as you can see people have alot of doubt towards Henne as the starter and are calling for CP10. So in my research based only off of stats,facts, scouting reports, which is all objective towards my personal feelings I am 100% sure Henne is the leader of this team now and for the future. People compared Henne to other QBs  such as Mark Sanchez,Flacco etc. which is fair but why not Pennington with his first 17 games here as a starter.

CP10 Stats in 17 games as a starter.

Scouting and Draft reviews on Henne.

Chad Henne Scouting Report by Mostly
Pros:Chad Henne's strong arm capabilites should suite him well in the NFL. His ability to find the big play receivers for long routes will attract some attention from professional scouts. He was a four year starter for Lyod Carr at Michigan and has played against physical defenses in the Big Ten Conference.  Henne Has good size, has been relatively injury free though he has played four years. Great arm strength, can make all the throws, and had the luxury of playing with Avant, Breaton, Braylon Edwards, and future picks Arrington and Manningham. Great leadership, has played through injury. He is very poised and confident as well, dispite another review Chad always played well in big games. Check his Rosebowl stats his freshman year, and his numbers in his first three OSU games.
Cons: His deep ball tends to sail somewhat. He isn't very mobile. More importantly, has a slight hitch in his wind up. Henne will throw the bone headed interception every so often, and looks like a fish out of water when the pocket collapses.
Overall: With a premium on qb's Henne will get his shot. Henne is a second round selection. He became the forgotten mad after the terrible season the Wolverines had. Scouts rave about Matt Ryan, Brohm and Woodson. I think Woodson the class of this class, and Henne is second. However, I think the combine may hurt his stock. His numbers were hurt by his senior year injuries. However, he is a strong leader, with arm strength, and he is battle tested. It is also worth a mention that GM's know Tom Brady went 16-0 this year, and Todd Collins lead the flounder Redskins to the playoffs. Having Michigan QB's doing so well, may make someone reach for Henne higher than we anticipate.

Ok now and finally here our some other QB comparisons to Chad in their first season as a starter Drew Brees and Jamarcus Russell. I Think its fair to compare a great QB and an awful QB to find balance in a Subject  all qb's that i'm noting has a big arm and they also had #1 WRs so I think its fair.

Now heres something you may not know. Quick story about Dan Henning and Chad Henne.

When Dolphins quarterback Chad Henne takes the field, for the most part, everything he does is categorically orchestrated by Miami offensive coordinator Dan Henning. But as far as his preference is concerned on whether he plays out of the shotgun or under center, Henne calls the shots. Dolphins Coach Tony Sparano and Dan Henning both admitted this fact during the week after questions arose on why Henne rarely takes snaps out of the shotgun.

In the shotgun formation, the football is snapped back to the quarterback who is standing several yards behind the center off the line of scrimmage. In that scenario, the quarterback would essentially have extra time to see the defense coming his way. However, under center, the football can simply be handed to the quarterback where he doesn’t have to be concerned about catching the football.

“Yeah, I do,” Henne said Friday when asked if he likes being under center better than in the shotgun formation. “I think just being under center I feel like I can see the safeties a little bit more, feel the coverage more.” “When you’re in the shotgun, I think when you’re taking a snap you have a split second where you don’t see the safeties rotate or know where people are at.”

Whether a quarterback decides to take snaps under center or out of the shotgun really doesn’t affect a player’s production. Former Cowboys quarterback Drew Bledsoe, for example, was a player who also preferred to take snaps under center, while current Dallas QB Tony Romo favors taking them out of the shotgun.

“Catching the ball in the shotgun and then getting your footwork right and throwing the ball, sometimes you can lose that one tick it takes maybe to make that throw,” Dolphins Coach Tony Sparano said. “I think a guy like Tony Romo likes to live in the shotgun; he’ll stay back there and do that, and I think because of his ability to escape, that’s probably the reason why. Where Chad would rather have the ball in his hand.”

Another facet of taking snaps out of the shotgun is that while the quarterback may have more time, the defense already knows that the QB is going to pass; so most of the time it eliminates the element of surprise.

So all of you Henne Critics STFU it's over Henne is and will be our Future Leader. I did have 6 videos to support my case from Henne's Michigan and Miami Highlights and low lights and you can SEE clearly, he has took major strides. He is accurate and making quick reads. Over all Henne will take us far. Thank you for reading my long post I won't be able to comment today but tomorrow i'm up for debate. Thanks Fin Fans and you little CLS guys leave the Phinsider. In Dolphin Nation we are Wolves, Chad Henne i'm glad you know you are not Marino, but you did follow his advice by picking a guy and letting it fly.
