The Robot Chad Henne is a frustrating robot.
This much we know.
What we might not know is if the Dolphins are going to stick with him as the franchise quarterback, or move the fuck on next season.
This would mean having to either draft someone, or trade for someone.
For the time being, however, we're stuck with him.
And everyone is weighing in on the debate:
--Tim Graham says the Fins would be justified in sticking with Henne if they believe they're not in building mode (citing the Marshall trade and Dansby signing). I say, way to balls-up with a definite yes or no there, Timmay.
--Cote says we need to be patient and give Henne more time. At least Cote stands for something. And if you can't take a guy who has an imaginary talking bird making his weekly football picks seriously, then who can you take seriously?
--Likewise, Mike Berardino has also come to Henne's defense. He uses Mark Sanchez as an example to help his argument. Somehow this does not make me feel better.
--Dave Hyde of all fucking people gave up on Henne after last week. Then got a shitload of emails from Dolphins fans sticking up for Henne. These are the same Dolphins fans who think every Dan Carpenter field goal is just terrific and that we should never, ever, say that our team sucks. I'd like to ram a trident into these people's asses.
I'm no football expert (although I'm pretty sure I can run the Dolphins competently enough where I'd make them at least a playoff team simply by virtue of drafting players based on the fact that they run really fast and can catch a football and not so much on, you know, their family or if their mom used to give handys for cash).
But I will say that I think I'm mostly done with Chad Henne.
I was one his strongest supporters. Mostly because I wanted him to be The Guy so bad. Also because we came up with his The Robot nickname (only to watch it spread by the mainstream media as something "random" fans just started calling him. Cockbreaths).
Cote says we've only had a year and a half to see what Henne can do, and therefore should cut him some slack. All I know is what I saw at Michigan (mostly inconsistent erratic, one day brilliant the next day shitty) is what I've seen in him during this year and a half span with the Dolphins (mostly inconsistent erratic, one day brilliant the next day shitty).
The good news is he had quite possibly the worst performance anyone can ever ask from their quarterback this past Sunday. Which means he's due to have a brilliant game this week against the Jets.
