Which Chad Henne will we see this 2011-12 season? Beats me, you never know what he is going to do. I have contemplated if he is like those other inconsistent NFL quarterbacks out there like, Chicago Bears QB Jay Cutler, New York Giants QB Eli Manning, or Philadelphia Eagles QB Vince Young (the former Tennessee Titan).
Henne is going into his 4th season with Miami Dolphins. This has to be the year right? In his career, the Miami Dolphins quarterback has a total of 27 touchdowns and 33 interceptions. The touchdowns is a decent amount but the interceptions need to decrease, especially at the end of the season. In the last six of last season he threw eight interceptions. The teams they played the last six games were the @ Oakland Radiers (W), vs. Cleveland Browns (L), @ N.Y. Jets (W), vs. Buffalo Bills (L), vs. Detroit Lions (L), and @ New England Patriots (L). More than half of these teams were under .500. The fact that the Dolphins lost to the teams included with deficit of 7 points or less is a little disturbing. Maybe if Chad Henne turned one of these interceptions into touchdown the team could have competed in the AFC East.
So it’s time to move on, it’s a new year for Chad Henne. Besides the fact the Dolphins lost the Monday Night Football game, one thing to take out of the lost was the way Chad Henne played. The combined passing yards between Tom Brady (517) and Chad Henne (416) was 933. If Henne could play this good every game against easier defenses then the Miami Dolphins will have a promising season.
Prediction for Chad Henne: 307-482 for 4,459 passing yards, and 18 touchdowns.
