After making everybody think that he was finally good enough to be a starter in the NFL with his performance against the Raiders, Chad Henne has just regressed to the same poor play that he has been doing his entire NFL career. He just can't make big things happen. He is too much of a robot, and he normally throws a bunch of turnovers. Turnovers weren't a problem in this game, but that was because Miami ran the ball a lot.
Dan Henning finally relied more on the running game than he did the passing game. I know that at the beginning of the season I said that the Dolphins would be better off if they threw more than they ran, but I was wrong. Chad Henne can't take the pressure of carrying the offense, so it is necessary for Miami to keep running the ball.
Henning still isn't in the clear for finally relying on the running game, though. Any time your offense is only able to gain 131 net yards, there has to be something wrong with your offensive coordinator. There is no excuse for such a poor offensive performance, and this should be yet another eye-opener for Stephen Ross that Dan Henning needs to go after this year.
Henning also doesn't seem to know how to use Brandon Marshall. He has been pretty ineffective this year, and it isn't his fault. Yes, he has dropped a few passes, but he still isn't getting much of a chance to make plays at all. At least Marshall is going to stay longer than just this season, because he should be a lot better with a new offensive coordinator.
I'll be honest, though, I don't want the Miami Dolphins to win another game this season. I want them to get a high enough draft pick for a potential franchise quarterback. I have been doing a little research, and Ryan Mallet of Arkansas is a quarterback that the Dolphins may have a shot at getting who I really want them to get.
Thanks for reading, and please let me know what you think about our current offense and what needs to be changed.
Also, I'd like to send a shout-out to my good Dolphins friend up in New York: Anthony. I know it was an ugly win, but at least you won't be hearing a bunch of trash-talking Jets fans all week.
