easy for you to say. If the Dolphins fail to make the playoffs they might be looking for a coach in the off-season. My thoughts on this are simple to say, difficult to execute..
Why would Miami be looking for a HC & destroy what they are building. New coach, means new system. Its the constantly changing of coaches that keep bad teams playing poorly. There is a reason the Steelers have won 6 SBs.
1. If we're going to go by performance, Thigpen is the starter. He clearly has the ability..
Until he starts playing against defensives with players who actually are in the NFL.
2. Pennington would get Miami to the playoffs...because he'll take what the defense will give him. He'll beat the easy teams with his accuracy and decision making. He's also more mobile than Henne. However Pennington won't beat the AFC bullies like Baltimore, Pittsburgh and the like. ..
Don't believe he is more mobile. Judgement I guess. However, getting to the playoffs & going home the next week does not sound appealing to myself. Had enough of that under Wanny. I want a team that has the chance to do some damage once it gets there. For that to happen Henne has to develop & he will not develop sitting on the bench.
3. Henne has the most upside and is a tough competitor. He put Miami in a position to win a lot of games down the stretch only to watch the defense cave.
