A Mind Is A Terrible Thing To Waste

Yeah I know the season is half over, but my Dad and I agreed that there should have been a QB change after week one.  He's been a football fan since Dan was in diapers and I'm getting senior moments myself now, but one thing I know is talent.

Money payed to play, NEVER equals talent! Some are almost worth the money they make, but few are ever proven before they make the big bucks...

I don't know what the coaches saw in Chad H. I don't dislike him at all. I just knew in preseason that he would not be the QB the Dolphins needed. Both Pennington and Thigpen out shined and out played the kid. It was obvious to me and probably a few talented scouts out there too, that Chad Henne is NOT the QB they thought he'd be.

The old "give him time to develop" slogan, practiced to fruition, didn't work here. This makes sense in normal situations, but not with Henne. He lacked many skills to hit the big leagues running, but the one main factor I always look for is "passion."

He had very little... He may end up being a good QB somewhere, but I'd prefer he develop in another region of football universe...

I saw a VERY high potential for success this year for the Dolphins, WITH a good QB at the helm.

I think all the "wishful thinking" put coach Sporano, big Bill upstairs and the organization behind the 8 ball this year...

It's hard to admit you made a "big boo boo," by paying a kid that was good in college, WAY more than his talent will take you today! But,my greatest sadness, (besides not being on the coaching staff), was to watch them allow two, much better QB's, sit on the bench and pretend to say, "all is OK!"

A mind IS a terrible thing to waste, but a whole season down the drain because your pride makes you hesitant to do the best thing for the team, is just as much a waste!

If the team realizes as I do, that with Tyler Thigpen in as QB, they can beat anyone now. They are that good. Tonight will be a wonderful test of their ability to recognize that and show us and themselves... the Dolphins are a very good team!
