His practice Wednesday, Pennington said, "was one of the best practices I've ever had as a Dolphin. I feel so good physically. I think I can make all the throws you need to make in this offense, and I'm really comfortable with what we're being asked to do this week.''

ok - lets read this quote very carefully and see if we can find out, how this staff has proven itself incompetent....
yup, pennington just said that he can make all the throws you need to make in this offense....EXCUSE ME?? DID I READ THAT CORRECTLY???
now supposedly this staff said they've been grooming chad henne to be the long term QB position.. got that... big kid, big arm, has physical skills few qb's can match... you go 13 games last year with him as your qb and then go into the offseason with the belief that he is your qb... and coming out of the offseason you design an offense where chad pennington can make all the throws in the offsense... a guy know for short controlled touch passes, who can't throw outside the hashes.
no real disrespect intended here to the penne... but there is no football world where chad henne and chad penne have the same football skills... penne is just incapable of making some of the throws henne makes... and he should be doing frequently (his strengths afterall)
so what does this really mean?... it means that henning and sparano spenta 3 years with the idea that henne will be THE QB of the team... they spent and entire off season with the belief that Henne would be the QB for the upcoming season and yet ... they don't modify their offense to the skill set of the most important player on the field... seriously
what does that tell us.... these guys are NOT the best nor the brightest....
it's time to move on tony and dan... lets go get rob ryan and have some fun......
