The Future, Not the Present

Henne is confident and calm, and every turn he gets on the field confirms publicly that the Miami brass believes privately: That he is this franchise's future quarterback.
- Armando Salguero, Miami Herald

The future isn't now. Miami was blown out by Arizona yesterday but rookie QB Chad Henne made his regular season debut during the final drive of the 4th quarter. His precision, arm strength, and decision making on that drive has many Dolphins fans clamoring for him to start sooner rather than later. Henne was 7 of 12 for 67 yards. Head Coach Tony Sparano has already declared the other Chad, Chad Pennington, the starter when Miami visits New England on Sunday. The following week is a bye. Will the Chad Henne era begin during week 5? It all depends on how Pennington performs next week.
