Dolphins Henne Vs. Broncos Orton: Week 1

The first week of the season is in the books so what better time to roll out a weekly Henne vs. Orton comparison.  After all, it was the Miami fans who chanted for Orton during the pre-season.  Still many more fans blame Jeff Ireland for the failure of not making the trade that would have brought the Denver QB to Miami.

So week 1?  Here are the stats:

Henne – 30 – 49  2 Passing TD’s, 1 Rushing TD, 416 yards passing, 59 yards rushing.  1 int (last play of the game)

Orton – 24 – 46 1 passing TD, 301 yards passing, 13 yards rushing, 1 int (fans were chanting for Tebow)

Week one winner:

Chad Henne!

    We need to stop worrying about Henne and the offense. Its obvious that we have gotten a lot better than last year and I think we will continue to improve. We need to worry about our defense right now. I was not happy with how our defense played at the end of last year, and I was not proud of the dolphins D yesterday. Maybe it was bad preparation, maybe it was bad coaching? Either way, it’s inexcusable and needs to get better…A LOT better by next week.

    First time poster and I just started listening to the PodCast! I loved Henne when he was at Michigan and was excited when the Phins drafted him. I personally always felt that Henning’s pathetic system was better suited for Pennington than Henne. Henne looked good last night. Daboll’s game plan was perfect, you couldn’t ask him to do any better. My only concern about Chad, and it is a valid one, is his consistency! I understand that the offensive line would struggle in most pee-wee leagues, but even with that, he looked poised and like the QB we saw in Michigan!

    Its a new year boys, get your popcorn ready and pray the defense shows up this year! I predict 10-6 this year!

    Love how everywhere I look the Henne haters are MIA this week! Love Chad, loved him at Michigan and I think he is a smarter more poised QB then I’ve ever seen. Still some questions with the o-line and run game (where was Larry Johnson?)

    If the defense comes back from the lock-out (cause lets face it, they didnt show up!) I think we can be 10-6!
