Maybe Stephen Ross is trying to match Rex Ryan in New York.
Miami Dolphins owner Stephen Ross recently said that the Dolphins would be in Super Bowl XLV, and that Chad Henne has the potential to be the best QB in Miami history. That history includes Dolphins QB Dan Marino.
This sounds like something New York Jets coach Rex Ryan would say, and not Stephen Ross, but he did and maybe it will show Chad Henne that the organization is confident in what he is doing.
I like the move, because I want Chad Henne to know that he is supported. Hearing that your boss thinks you can be the best ever has to make you confident in yourself.
There has been talk that Ross is only adding pressure to Chad Henne, but I don't think that is a problem. It will probably only give Henne more confidence. Ross is making a very smart move, because if he can give Henne confidence now, then Henne will have confidence during games to throw the ball long.
Having someone who believes in you and sees your potential is huge. Not only is Ross impacting Henne, he is also impacting the whole Dolphins team because he is telling them that he believes in what they can do with his Super Bowl prediction.
Maybe his words will have no effect on what will happen for the Dolphins next season, but that isn't likely. Ross is standing behind the players he has and is showing them he thinks they are able to succeed.
This could be a really smart thing for Ross to say, but only time will tell.
Let me know what you guys think in the comments.
