Agreed. I would say the same thing about the "+12" and "+16" comments, and many of the other comments on this thread. These are totally unnecessary and a waste of everyone's time.[quote][/quote]
Thank you, I rarely involve myself in the discussions, even having been a member of this forum for a number of years, and enjoyed it's information, for that reason.
My personal opinion is that Henne requires more time (another season), I understand those who disagree, but I am not of their opinion. He may go either way but I would not wish to make a final judgement just yet.
My belief is that in most sports consistancy is the key. In my experience the most sucessfull teams are the ones with the most settled squad/staff, regardless of which sport they are involved in. Henne may not be the answer but I believe that to make wholesale changes in both personel and coaching staff at this time is an error, because it mearly perpetuates the Dolphins perennial issue, (Since the Don), a lack of a settled philosophy. We currently have many good/great pieces in place (Wake, Misi, Dansby, Marshall, Hartline, Bess, Davis, Smith, Long, Incognito, Solai, Bell, Caroll, etc), give them a little morer time.
I also agree that Henning has outgrown his usefullness, his offence appears to be very outdated and predictable, however to call for the head of Sparano at this stage seems to me to be a little premature, little by little he and Ireland appear to be improving this team for the long term, solid, not spectacular. Have he and Ireland missed on a number of calls, Yes, have they hit big on a number of others, again, Yes, in my opinion.
To be an every year contender, first you have to be a contender, then you can afford to take BPA and trade every draft (see New England) and roll with the misses/Injuries when they happen.
I realise that I have never played the game (I'm English therefore played Rugby) but the basics of team sports, it seems to me, are not that different, in general.
Just my opinion
