In contrast, Henne's 621 DYAR (defense-adjusted yards above replacement) was 17th in the league, which is to say just a bit below average. Henne's season was crippled by the 19 interceptions he threw, but a closer look suggests that he was the victim of some terrible luck. Almost every mistake throw Henne made ended up on the stat sheet, as he only he had only one dropped interception all year. With even average luck, Henne's interceptions will decrease this season, and he will return to being a middle-of-the-pack quarterback with some potential for growth.
Instead, they signed Matt Moore, he of the minus-270 DYAR and minus-37.5 percent DVOA, who lost his job last year to Jimmy Clausen of all people. Now the Dolphins will have a quarterback controversy on their hands in training camp, and there will be pressure to give Moore a legitimate shot at the starting gig, which means fewer reps for Henne as offensive coordinator Brian Daboll installs a new offense.
