We all know Chad Henne was having a pretty good start before he got injured. Lets just stretch our imagination and say he did not get hurt and continued having a good year.
Chad Henne's stat line at the end of the year are Yards 3,200 TD 22 INT 10 QB Rating 90
Chad Henne's contract is up at the end of this year and he has been a loyal dolphin for 4 years. He backed up Pennington, filled in when Pennington got hurt, Started only to be replaced by Pennington and came right back in when Pennington got hurt again.
What should we do with him?
As many of you quickly figured out this was all a trick. I really wanted to know what would happen if i switched Chad Henne's name with Matt Moores stats. How would people answer the poll.
First I would like to say thanks to Henne's Mom for joining us on phinsider.com as she was the only one who voted for him to be the next franchise QB.
Next 35% of voters believed he should be the starter next year and bring in someone to compete with him for the starting job rookie or veteran.
9% believe he is nothing more than a backup
51% surprisingly said we should let him go because Moore can be the backup. I'm not sure how many saw my little trick before answering the answer.
I guess that proves my theory wrong... it's still about 35% support not making an effort to draft a QB either way.
Now on a similar poll all be it not the same. 67% of voters voted to move up to draft a rookie QB when the starting QB option was Matt Moore.
What should we do with Chad Henne after he has his breakout year?
Resign him to long term contract as QB of future (5 votes)
Resign him as possible starter but bring in competetion (65 votes)
Resign him as backup to some rookie/veteran QB (27 votes)
Let him go since we have a good enough backup in Moore (81 votes)
