I am not saying Chad Henne is better than any of these quarterbacks, though I hope he will be one day. I am just looking at the numbers. It is kind of incredible that Eli Manning was payed three quarters of a million dollars for every touchdown he threw.

If you would like me to analyze the numbers for another QB not listed here you can either comment on this post asking or feel free to email me at dolphinshout@yahoo.com.

I cannot guarantee that I will be able to do it, but I will try my best.

I don't see any relevance between pay and play. It doesn't show who is a better QB. That's what QB ratings are for.

I don't care if Henne makes 100k a year or 100000k a year. It doesn't matter. Wins matter that's all. No one can doubt that. In my mind the best QB to ever play the game that I have seen is Marino. Yet all we hear is he never won the big one. So the honor of best ever goes to Joe Montana. Give me a break, Montana couldn't have held Marino's Jock strap when it came to passing. But Dan never won "the big one" so he gets passed over for the best ever.

It comes down to winning if Henne QBs the Dolphins to wins and the playoffs then he will be a great QB. Even if he throws 20 ints. a year. The amount of money he makes won't mean a thing.

I know I'm just interested in stats and pay. I like crunching numbers. It gives me something to do if nothing else.
