Although this is one of the most competitive division in the NFL, one team is left on the outside looking in. After a valiant effort against the Patriots Week 1, everything has been downhill for Chad Henne and the Miami Dolphins.
Miami came into the season with a lot of turmoil and question marks during the offseason, starting with their head coaching position. The front office tried to essentially dump Tony Sparano after hearing that Jim Harbaugh was ready to come to the NFL. After he declined the Dolphins offer, they went to Sparano and decided to try to kiss and make up.
The story of Chad Henne is very similar to that of his coach. During the offseason the Dolphins tried to get Kyle Orton, Matt Moore, or it seemed like anyone who could throw to come in and be their starting quarterback. After a deal with Orton fell through, Miami still signed Moore who is now riding the pine in favor or the bitter, albeit better, quarterback Chad Henne.
Another problem is in the backfield, where the Dolphins took a chance on former Saint Reggie Bush. They thought he could be an every down back, but it turns out he's better at just sitting down on the bench. They have given the starting running back position to rookie Daniel Thomas, and it looks like things will stay that way for the rest of the season.
I don't see things getting much better for the Dolphins and they look to be finishing the season at a lowly 4-12. On the bright side for Dolphins fans, you may just be bad enough to win the Andrew Luck sweepstakes. What more could the Dolphins ask for?
