Moving past the WILDCAT

On Sunday against the Jets, the Dolphins tried the Wildcat eight times. They netted minus-18 yards.

"Let's see, average," Tony Sparano said Monday, when asked to assess the Wildcat's production.

Did he think it hindered the offensive flow?   "No," Sparano said.

The Dolphins do something else, of course. They take control from their developing quarterback. In Sunday's game, the Dolphins used Wildcat five times after Chad Henne threw passes. He had completed four of those, for 91 yards, and they were four of his best throws. What would his next throw have been?

The Dolphins repeatedly have downplayed the rhythm drawback, but someone's word carries more weight. On WQAM-560 on Monday, Dan Marino said, "I was never a big fan of taking the starting quarterback out of the game for one or two plays. Ronnie Brown is a running back and, pretty much, when he's in there, the passing game is gone, there's nothing."

FIRST -  for Tony to say that the 'Cat performance was "average" is a huge lie.  Really ? 8 times for minus 18 yards is average ?   when Dan Marino dosent like it - you can bank on it... this hurts the QB.  Marino knows more about offense (QB position) than Tony or Bill or that idiot Dan Henning will ever know...

Look we are in total denial from a coaching standpoint, if he thinks this is average.  The WILDCAT is a DRIVE KILLER right now... TIME TO PUT IT AWAY, except for a few times during the season, maybe on the goal line if we are trying to punch it in.

I loved this formation - but its time to move on and let Chad Henne run this offense !  Let him grow as a QB and not be pulled off the field just when he is moving the team.
