I'm sick of veteran re-treads and hit or miss second round picks. Personally, I want to go all in on a guy high in the draft -- whether it's Luck, Newton or Mallett.

What I'm saying to you is Henne leaves way too many plays on the field. Yesterday was a prime example of that. Furthermore, he makes too many mistakes for a conservative game manager. On your sorry excuse for an NFL QB not hitting a wide open target - I ain't buying it. High School QB's make that throw 80% of the time...with guys trying to sack them and guys covering. Henne has missed those throws all season are RARELY makes one. I'm sure Henne will be "serviceable" one day in the realm of a Trent Dilfer but he's not the guy who is going to hoist this team on his shoulders and carry it.



please stop with the whole 80% thing. you sound ridiculous.


Not nearly as ridiculous as some of you homers sound trying to defend Henne. Have you ever played the game? Geez! That game he played yesterday made Rick Mirer look good.


i never said Henne played a good game. I'm just saying that is the 2nd time you have said that in this thread and it made my eyes bleed the 2nd time around so I had to say something.

Once again, all I'm sayin is he may be the best option available to us.
I didnt say he was Peyton Manning.
But he may be easy to get and is certainly better than the mess we currently have.
How do you know he wouldnt succeed here. He'd have a pretty nice team around him.
Better than the Bengals.

But I've made it known, Andrew Luck is my first choice.

If you miss on that pick you are done for many years. That is certain. You would lose multiple draft picks. You would have probably three subpar seasons and we'd have to look for another Qb in 2014. You are going to have another coaching change.

If you don't make that pick... then.... we don't know what will happen. You can't be so definitive in your post.

Unless Henne has a major turn around....

I mean, for me, it seems like 50% on hitting on a QB is more than the chance Henne rebounds.

So what do you guys suggest? Flounder with so-so quarterback play and be 8-8 every year, picking 14th in the draft? Please... Sometimes to hit it big, you have to gamble big. We've tried this band-aid thing since Marino retired and it hasn't worked.

This team has enough young talent on it that it won't be a complete train wreck if the pick busts. And even if he does bust, and it is a trainwreck, your team can restock on high draft picks after a couple of years and you can rebuild the thing.

Now its time to take a chance. I'm sick and tired of 8-8.

No thanks. Kolb looks like a glorified John Beck.

Im not one to argue if Kolb is right or wrong at this point in time, but that is quite possibly the most ridiculous statement I've heard on these forums in quite some time. Seriously, that is just plain ridiculous.



why is it ridiculous? What has Kolb ever done?
Andy Reid has invested 3 years in him and gave up on him pretty darn quick in the season where Kolb was suppose to be the man.
He's too small and comes from a school that's known for failures at the NFL level. (see. Andre Ware and David Klingler)
You're the one saying ridiculous things.

You compared him to John Beck; thats a ridiculous statement. You said that he is too small; another ridiculous statement. Mike Vick is playing as good or better than anyone in the NFL right now. Reid didn't 'give up' on Kolb, he went with the best choice; another ridiculous statement by you. Care to keep this going or have you had enough of making yourself look silly?

he is too small and frail. And comes from the same conference as beck. Reid did give up on him.
And I give up on you. Because you're ridiculous.

Stop dreaming of Luck. He is not a option. Its simply not going to happen that Miami can move from mid 1st to the top of the draft. You are also expecting the team at No. 1 to want to move down that far. They will not.

swerve, I don't know that Andy Reid has given up on Kolb as much as it is that Mike Vick has come in and play phenominal football when Kolb got hurt in the Green Bay game. Not many QB are better than Vick when he plays like he is playing now for Philly

Philly OL is not very good, and Vick gives them there best chance because of his great mobility. Kevin moves pretty well, but now well enough to deal with how bad Philly OL is in pass protection.

As far as Carson Palmer, between the knee injury he suffered in the Steelers playoff game a few years ago and his arm issues, he is not the same QB. Not only has his arm strength dimished, but his decision making has been horrible as well, especially this year.

Drew Bres, Brett Favre (last two seasons), Michael Vick, Jay Cutler, Kurt Warner with AZ, Kerry Collins (last season), Kyle Orton, Matt Cassell, Donovan McNabb, .... all of these guys were veteran re-treads. Some just needed a change of systems, others just needed a 2nd chance. Miami's chance of trading for the number 1 overall pick is about the same as them making the playoffs this year. Realistcally there are some veterans, young players out there who might be trade bait.

1. Kevin Kolb
2. David Carr
3. Tim Tebo - Kyle Orton ( Tebo has become a distraction to the team in that fans have been constantly calling for him).
The new coach will have to make a decision to get rid of either Orton or Tebo. IMHO, Miami should be first in line to try
either.
4. How about Jim Sorgi...the guy no one has heard of. He sat behind Manning for years and then went somewhere else last season. Trade?

There's options out there, Miami just has to exercise them. My gut is telling me Sparano will stay with Henne.

Did you seriously type David Carr? or Tebow? Seriously? The man everyone said was a 3rd Rd. pick last year & laughed at the Broncos for taking him in Rd. 1. You think Henne is bad. Wait till you see Tebow throwing to NFL D's.

Again seriously Jim Sorgi?

If these are the options, then Miami is better off with the status quo. Thanks though for showing everyone just what is out there to be had.

Much, much better options.

The Bengals have pretty good skill people around Carson. The OL may be struggling, but as I said before, his decision making has been awful.

Sorry but if you have no OL the skill people don't matter. 2 seconds then a jailbreak made Steve Young look bad in Tampa.

Much, much better options.


So what's your answer...Oh that's right it is to stay with the Status Quo :hithead: You must like 8-8 because that is what Miami will forever be unless they somehow have the best running game and defense in the league. Henne is Trent Dilfer...not John Elway. The great ones show glimpses of greatness even when they're learning. I've not seen that from Henne. I've seen lousy play interrupted by average. What's your beef with Tebow? Did you watch this kids leadership ability at Florida? Obviously you must've missed it. David Carr was bad because he had no OL. How bad was Steve Young in Tampa those first couple of seasons. Pretty bad. How'd that work out? Who is the next Matt Cassell, or Kurt Warner. There's guys out there, my point is you bring multiple guys in and let them compete. There's no way you're getting Luck so you might as well begin your search with what IS out there and not live in some fantasy world. The bottom line is even if none of these guys pan out, you still have your boy Henne to guide us to 8-8 next year.

I would take Henne over thesee guys on potential alone. I saw Carr play against the Panthers this year and was pathetic. WHy do you think they started Troy SMith over Carr? Sorgi...a career backup if that.

Has Sorgi ever played a real game? Nice that we can evaluate talent when a guy really hasn't had the opportunity. Finally to put potential and Henne in the same sentence despite two years of evidence is questionable.

Maybe he is Trent Dilfer. Surprised you picked a Super Bowl winning Qb to compare him to.

I said I would stay with the status quo over what you threw out.

Like what? What does he need to show you that you would consider a glimpse?

If this were the NCAA then I'd take Tebow. However, its not. There is a reason Tebow did not take snaps under center at FL. He is a runner, not a passer. NFL you need to be able to throw & he doesn't have a strong arm.. I like Tebow the person, just not as an NFL QB.

Bad in Texas, Bad in Carolina, Bad in New York, bad in San Fran. So all 4 have had bad OL?

You are making a case to keep Henne & let he play through it

NFLJunkie wrote:

Who knows, but its not David Carr or Jim Sorgi. Everyone should have know Cassell has skills. The man never played at SC and was still able to get drafted & stick on a NFL team.

So bring in a bunch of average guys & throw them up against the wall, see if any stick & then expect them to lead you forward from 8-8. Got it.

That's why he's a backup? I look at it as he doesn't have the talent to start. I think Henne is struggling, that's for sure. I question his ability to lead this team, but it's too early to just give up on him. I do however think that we need to draft a QB high and low. You never know. We know with the guys you mentioned.

swerve, I don't know that Andy Reid has given up on Kolb as much as it is that Mike Vick has come in and play phenominal football when Kolb got hurt in the Green Bay game. Not many QB are better than Vick when he plays like he is playing now for Philly

Philly OL is not very good, and Vick gives them there best chance because of his great mobility. Kevin moves pretty well, but now well enough to deal with how bad Philly OL is in pass protection.

As far as Carson Palmer, between the knee injury he suffered in the Steelers playoff game a few years ago and his arm issues, he is not the same QB. Not only has his arm strength dimished, but his decision making has been horrible as well, especially this year.


Palmer has no team around him. His OL sux.


I realize that Palmer has declined since his 2004 self. But I still thinnk he is a solid vet.

So what's your answer...Oh that's right it is to stay with the Status Quo :hithead: You must like 8-8 because that is what Miami will forever be unless they somehow have the best running game and defense in the league. Henne is Trent Dilfer...not John Elway.
Maybe he is Trent Dilfer. Surprised you picked a Super Bowl winning Qb to compare him to.

I said I would stay with the status quo over what you threw out.

The great ones show glimpses of greatness even when they're learning. I've not seen that from Henne.
Like what? What does he need to show you that you would consider a glimpse?

What's your beef with Tebow? Did you watch this kids leadership ability at Florida? Obviously you must've missed it.
If this were the NCAA then I'd take Tebow. However, its not. There is a reason Tebow did not take snaps under center at FL. He is a runner, not a passer. NFL you need to be able to throw & he doesn't have a strong arm.. I like Tebow the person, just not as an NFL QB.

David Carr was bad because he had no OL.
Bad in Texas, Bad in Carolina, Bad in New York, bad in San Fran. So all 4 have had bad OL?

How bad was Steve Young in Tampa those first couple of seasons. Pretty bad. How'd that work out?
You are making a case to keep Henne & let he play through it

NFLJunkie wrote:

Who is the next Matt Cassell, or Kurt Warner.
Who knows, but its not David Carr or Jim Sorgi. Everyone should have know Cassell has skills. The man never played at SC and was still able to get drafted & stick on a NFL team.

There's guys out there, my point is you bring multiple guys in and let them compete. There's no way you're getting Luck so you might as well begin your search with what IS out there and not live in some fantasy world. The bottom line is even if none of these guys pan out, you still have your boy Henne to guide us to 8-8 next year.
So bring in a bunch of average guys & throw them up against the wall, see if any stick & then expect them to lead you forward from 8-8. Got it.


So again, your plan is to move forward with Henne and NOT try and improve the situation. Miami's options are limited as anyone in the draft will be gone by the time they pick.

Huh?

These Tebow milestones were all before his senior year. It is pretty ignorant to sit back and say the kid can't throw. More importantly, he is a leader.

Has Sorgi ever played a real game? Nice that we can evaluate talent when a guy really hasn't had the opportunity.

That's why he's a backup? I look at it as he doesn't have the talent to start. I think Henne is struggling, that's for sure. I question his ability to lead this team, but it's too early to just give up on him. I do however think that we need to draft a QB high and low. You never know. We know with the guys you mentioned.


We wouldn't know who Kurt Warner or Matt Cassel were if the injuries had not occurred to Green and Brady. Sorgi backup up Peyton and now backs up Eli...kind of hard to evaluate him based on that.
