Ok now i have 5 thoughts about this game that might be bumps in the road to 5-4 or a component that might be essential for this awful home playing team to win its first.( And at the end im going to have my own edition of prediction time.)
Lets get started!
1.Chad Penningtons has his starting job back: Well last year when he got injured i was upset and at the time didn't know much about Henne and actually i started to warm up to his powerful arm and his youth while the season went on because of course i knew he was probably our future and it was good to see him getting expirence. But i thought he was a teperary thing but when 2010 rolled around Henne was named starter. And if you might have guessed i was mad a pit but i knew with Penningtons shoulder and his age he would not be worth it so i jumped on the Henne train once again. But as i forced myself threw 4 heart breaking losses i didn't get mad or surprised when Penne get the job back. I believe they are both great quarterbacks but i'm just looking forward to watching Chad tomorrow at Miami vs. this Titan defense.
2.Randy Moss factor in Tennessee: I know, i know everyone got madddd because of Dolphins passing on Moss but i dont see why we would need him with Marshall, Bess, and Hartline but theres no question hes a great WR and i know it would not cost us much but i dont like his attidude, his playing style, or his effort its that simple but dont get me wrong i respect him and his ability period off the topic. Now i think that Davis can guard him show'd that in week 4 but hes great on dabues so he scares me a little i predict him with 55-60 yards 1 TD which would not be good if i'm right. And with the chemistry with Moss and former quarterback on the Raiders K. Collins.
3.Brandon Marshall's effect on our air game: This man is nicknamed the beast but this season i havent seen the things i was exited in him in the first place coming onto the dolphins (the long shots down field). the only thing i get mad about is henning has him doing quick slants and comebacks no flys or posts. but if you think about it he might be calling those plays to work with hennes play style he likes to fire it in tight spaces which i guess makes sense for the patterns ran by the wideouts. now off of that penningtons style is accurate either downfield or on posts so i see the play calling to change alot. (But hopefully we give the ball to Brown way more then last game.)
4.Red zone scores: Well this goes without saying we kick ALOT of field goals which we have had many oppritunities to get 6 and not. thats one of my many dislikes of our offense (remeber last week when henne over threw fasano for six before the halve which ended up only getting a field goal out of that nice looking drive.)Hopefully tomorrow we can score TDs and not as much of this field goal stuff.
5.PREDICTION TIME: I believe that Penne is going to show all those haters whats what and give a steller gave with 250-350 passing yrds and at least 2-3 td passes no int. and dolphins will get a win close at the defensive faulk winning 21-14 or 21-17.
