It's taken me the whole 3 days to digest the Pennington move. And it does make sense. Henning has won with Penny, and his leadership can keep us alive. It shuts down the deep ball, and we won't beat elite teams with Pennington, BUT we've already lost to all the elite teams. So 6-2, throughout the rest of the season is VERY POSSIBLE with Pennington in at the helm. That being said, Please some one tell me where firing your OC mid season has EVER paid off. Henning will be gone at the end of the season, and Henne will regain the starting role next season..... That I am sure of. Hopefully we get a more creative OC, wow, Cam Cameron would be perfect for this Offense right about now. But either way, I expect to get some one alot more EFFICIENT than Henning. Maybe Childress will be available for OC once he gets fired. Hopefully Jason Garrett doesnt work out as interim in Dallas, and we can snag him for OC, which may be perfect. Its not their Offense that is lacking, its the overall cast from HC down, Garrett is widely supported, and Sparano would very much appreciate that. Who knows? Maybe McDaniels gets the boot in Denver after they collapse even further, and the Parcells-Belichick ties would bring him down to South Beach to run our Offense....
Look guys, Its not Henne thats the problem. Its Henning. Its like he's running a college offense in the NFL. You know, looking to the sidelines and waiting for a coach to make an audible for him, since he isnt allowed to do it on his own. He's been handcuffed, and that is the problem. The only time he makes his own calls is in the 2 minute offense. And wait, what do you know, Henne has 4 4th quarter come backs, and has actually been pretty darn good in the 2 minute drill. He marched up field on the Jets both years, yes it was a pick this time around, but that was a great play on the ball, and Fasano could have stepped in front to make that play. With exception to the Bills road game last season, hes done a great job in the 2 minute offense, and You cant tell me he is waiting for the booth to make those calls.
Its Henning, and we have to survive this season with him at OC. Yes we are still in it, and if we win this week, Maybe 10-6 or 11-5 is doable. I havent lost faith. But Pennington at the helm may save Sparano's job. But Henning is gone at the end of the year, and I think everyone is aware of this. So lets just hope for the best. Penny has worked miracles before. What a great end to his career, if he can bring us to the playoffs this season.... then be our OC possible, or QB coach groomed for the role. Either way, we are not to lose faith in Henne.
