The Chad Henne Era is Over for the Miami Dolphins

The Miami Dolphins will have no more Chads hanging around next season. According to the Sun-Sentinel, the Dolphins are expected to part ways with quarterback Chad Henne officially next month. He now joins the long list of Dolphins QBs who've failed to live up to the legend of Dan Marino.

Henne will likely become an unrestricted free agent on March 13th, and the Fins have no interest in keeping him around. They'll look elsewhere to upgrade the QB position.

Henne was drafted by the Dolphins back in 2008 in the second round. Henne saw little action in his first season, but took over starter duty after Chad Pennington was seriously injured in 2009. While there were flashes of brilliance and gradual improvement over his career, his time with the Dolphins was hampered by injury. He went out in the fourth game of last season and never returned.

"This football team didn't win enough games when he was quarterback here. But that doesn't mean he did everything wrong, or right," GM Jeff Ireland said of Henne last month. "If he goes somewhere else, Chad's a good football player. He can play in this league."

The Dolphins meanwhile will be looking for a new QB this season. While they're believed to be targeting either Matt Flynn or possibly Peyton Manning, the team could also trade up in the draft.

I agree. Owner Steve Ross needs to use his own billions to fix up his own damn property. I don't see him giving away tickets? I don't see him giving away any of his buildings in NYC?

No more taxpayer bailouts of billionaires.


It's about 3 seasons too late.............does Ireland go with him or does he blame Parcells for that decision?    Hope Weezle Ireland goes it will be a step in the right direction for the new regime

Asshole face Ross is a football retard. Jeff the drunk Ireland also a retard. My apologies to real retards for comparing you to puckered asshole face and the drunk. Henne sucked, and those two retards brought him here.

If the billionaire owner of the Dolphins, Steve Ross, wants to improve his privately owned stadium he needs to pay for the improvements himself. Nobody put a gun to his head and forced him to buy the team.
