Of course, Stephen Ross threw his coach and GM under the bus and said that they really, oughta, maybe, like win now, you know (or else?) and added that he has "full confidence" in Henne. He went on to say that he sees Henne as a leader because he organized practices and such. Now I have to laugh because he certainly couldn't have contact with players until earlier this week, so how does he *know* this? Heck I'm more likely to know, and my understanding is that it wasn't Henne who brought them together, but rather Jake Long.
And then there's the simple fact that the NFL has changed. Passing has become more important than running. You have to be able to get the ball down the field. Defenses have gotten faster and bigger, so its hard to run - you must use a short passing game, with the occasional long pass to keep defenses off balance. But apparently our coaches didn't get that memo. And as a friend of mine - who happens to be a Pats fan - said to me this morning "I guess with Bush the Dolphins are going to be in the Wildcat all the time now?"
Sigh. It might be a long year. But Andrew Luck may be in our future.
