The 2010 NFL Season officially ended last night with the Green Bay Packers triumphing over the Pittsburgh Steelers 31-25. Both were lead by All-star quarterbacks that are he face of each others franchise.
It's time for the Dolphins to do the same now.
How can I team that was picked by NFL.com to be a Super Bowl calibre team, end up not even making the playoffs? The poor play of a quarterback thats how.
Their are no excuses for Chad Henne's poor play this year. The Dolphins built a team around him to succeed with. The Dolphins traded away their offensive line that 4th in the league in rushing for more of a pass-blocking line. They went out and got a Pro-Bowl wide receiver in Brandon Marshall. Yet Henne still played poorly throwing 15 TDs to 19 Interceptions.
And you can't say the Dolphisn didn't give him time to develop. Henne was slated to start in 2010, only getting about 12 quarters of play in 2009. But Henne played 59 quarters (13 starts and 3 quarters of back-up play) in 2009, adding to his development time. He got to learn under one of the smartest quarterbacks out their in Chad Pennington.
Now let's take a look at the different quarterback options for the Dolphins this offseason, if a new CBA is worked out.
