Last night's game

I was glad to see Reggie Bush play. No doubt, he's an exciting player.

And Chad Henne played probably his best game, which frankly isn't saying much, but I'll give him credit for having a good performance.  He was aided by the fact that the fact that he has Reggie Bush, of course.  But overall I was satisfied with his play.

But let's be realistic.  A win is nice.  Seeing some good play on offense and defense was nice.  But it was preseason, and Miami was playing against the team that finished with 1? (maybe it was 2-3?) wins last season.  They have a new coach and a new QB.  In all honesty, they looked AWFUL.  They couldn't beat my grandmother.

So, what I take away is that Miami is not the worst team in the league, and they have some up side, and have some potential to win some games this season.  Henne could turn out alright.  And Bush may be a difference-maker at times.

But...they need to cut the penalties.  And the offensive line play needs to improve.  I saw a few whiffs - in particular, there was one play where the RT stood there and blocked no one (literally, he was standing there as his guy ran past him), as the DE got in and made Henne throw a ball wildly.
