A little "hype" just before training camp. Let's hope that it is more than hype.

Quote:
Fellow quarterback Chad Pennington said fans should prepare to be impressed.

"To see the transition he's made over the last year is phenomenal," Pennington said. "He's made such big strides. You watch him compared to when he came in last year, he's a totally different quarterback."



Quote:
White did his best to make up ground during the off-season - running back Ricky Williams called him the team's most improved player.

Coach Tony Sparano said White got back to work so quickly after the season that he had to be told to stay away from the Dolphins' training facility when the Indianapolis Colts were using it to prepare for the Super Bowl in early February.

"The guy has really put some time in," Sparano said at mini-camp. "He's watched a lot of tape, done a lot of studying on his own and with (quarterbacks coach) David Lee.

"You can start to see some of that now. He's going the right places with the ball and you're starting to see him hit some things a bit quicker, get to some second and third progressions. I like his progress."

At least he has the work ethic.

White does not want to hear it, the coaches don't want to here it, and some fans don't want to hear it, but if he is going to make this team in the future he will have to show ability as a Slash. Henne is the future and present of this franchise. White has too much talent to be sitting the bench as a 3rd QB. Right now there is an open spot at the 5th WR position; I think that's what he should be targeting.

I get a funny feeling in my gut that the Offense is trying to spin the pat white "development" to distract from his real role. Hear me out here.... the Pat package was a shotgun set, or a pistol set.... and in the final week he had the whole offense until he got knocked the F out. Every other team has film on him in our uni, and can see his "potential". Theres not much more to be seen from the wildcat, or the Dan Henning gimmickry to know what pat can/will/might do in this formation. With actual game footage, teams have had a whole offseason to plan against it..... And plus, 0-5, with a pick, and maybe 60 yards rushing isnt all to convincing tat he is capable of anything else except for his gimmickry...

Hence, Ricky has stated that Pat is the most improved this offseason. Sparano praises his development... now Penny is raving about his improvement..... With not much news circulating recently...... these little praises..... at strategic times..... may create the 'illusion' that White 'may' be capable of being a "Quarterback"...... How else can the Phins capitalize on Pat's skill set as a wildpat specialist than create the mystique that he can actually complete a pass, or that he can be a threat as a passer now?

Its just curious.... you hear a few snippets from coaches and veterans about an alleged "improvement"...... and we all know the tactics this Trifecta is capable of. I just have this funny feeling that all these praises and such are just smoke and mirrors trying to create hype that White is more than what we all know he is.... Hell, I hope its all true, but then again, i got this feeling that its all manufactured.......lets hope he shows "promise" in the preseason to keep this myth alive for the regular season....

What exactly do we know he is? People here will go on and on and on about how badly he sucks... with what sample size? How many plays did he actually get?

This argument is getting tiring.

Dan Henning is a genius. Don't be surprised if we have a new wrinkle to the offense this year.

But this year, let's use it on the Jets. I hate those guys.

I keep forgetting who said it, but when Ronnie went down, someone on this board mentioned having Ricky take the snaps and having White run the motion.

Why on God's green earth White was being asked to fake the jet to Williams and then pound it up the middle is beyond me....the aforementioned makes so much more sense. Have White run to his left on a jet, and sometimes he turns it up field, and others it's a jet sweep pass....perfect.

So is Henning a genius?
No....he comes up with some good plays, but when guys on this board can come up with something that simple but he can't; you tend to wonder.

Yeah I'll gladly take credit for that :yay:

But I wasn't the only one on here to mention it... it's just clear cut common sense. If White is in mid stride towards the outside and knows he wont get anywhere with the run, he can then dump it off in the flats as long as the play is designed to have a TE / FB / RB to be standing there, I would say throw it deep, but if he's being rushed he wont have enough time to wind up that throw.
