Not in college and not in the first three years of his pro career. Chad Henne has never been his teams captain. Many fans will say “well…duh” and “he shouldn’t even be on the roster”. Well, whatever. Chad Henne was named by his team as a captain. Henne will join Jake Long, Yeremiah Bell, and Karlos Dansby.
The decision by the players to elect Chad Henne is proof that the team is supporting him 100 percent. It’s vindication for Henne who along with Long, took a summer of lockout and led the offense in player only practices. The Dolphins were one of the first teams to begin their own workouts and did so throughout the summer.
Now, he has to go out and prove that his teammates weren’t wrong and if he beats the Patriots on Monday night…some of those fans may be climbing back over that fence.
