Inside The Phinsider are a bunch of passionate fans. If we weren't, why would we take time out of our daily lives to write up lengthy essays/reports and review our fellow Dolphin fans' ideas and opinions. We comment, correct, agree, disagree and sometimes downright abuse each other here. But all of this occurs with the overarching theme of our love for this team. I'm not here to preach about respecting each others' ideas. In fact, if you disagree with somebody then fire away!
The point of this post is to remind everybody that we are here for the same cause (and to tell the story of Phin Wars, which awaits you in the next paragraph). We want the Dolphins to be yearly contenders again and we love discussing why we are not and how we can become a playoff team once again. WE ALL KNOW HENNE PROBABLY ISN"T THE ANSWER! This is not a breakthrough discovery. Many of us are still holding onto whatever shred of hope we have that he will turn out fine. Yet, with every performance, we grow more anxious and tired of the same old sub-par QB play that we've seen for so long.
Here at The Phinsider, we have no shortages of Henne bashing posts, so this will hopefully be a bit fresher for all of you Phinatics.
This is the story of Phin Wars: Enter: John Williams
Imagine that Henne is Anakin Skywalker and his training is not yet complete. Grown, his powers have. Jedi, he is not. Certain negative forces (Chancellor Palpatine) who will be played by Dan Henning, have stunted his growth. He was tempted to be something he is not (darkside=super conservative). In our version of Phins Wars, for the sake of the story, Palpatine dies before Skywalker joins the darkside. Back to the story. Henning has been destroyed and Henne can now be the Jedi he was destined to be. In week one of the preseason we saw his new mentor, Obi Won Dabolli, unleash the force on Darth Falcon. The more time these two spend together, the more promise they can potentially create. I saw some very good signs, along with the same old Henne, all mixed together into a concoction of doubt and promise. The darkside clouded our judgement for so long that we are still working it out of our system, as is Henne. Patient we must be. Patience is key. Patience is something Dolphin fans have become masters of, Jedi's if you will.
In a sense, this is year one for Henne. A new start, a new beginning. What better way to celebrate a new beginning than toast to it? Let's forget about preseason game 1 and the past few years under Chancellor Palpatine and rally behind this kid. This is his final audition. Put down your lightsabers my friends and pick up your flasks (you alcoholics) and cheers to this new beginning for Henne! Here here!
