So, as expected, Chad Henne will have to undergo surgery for his separated shoulder and is out for the rest of the season.  Tough break for Henne who had shown signs of life under Coach Brian Daboll’s new offensive approach.  Tough for Tony Sparano also who’s job is on the line.

Upset, Frustrated and Angry

I thought I smelled an upset before the Chargers game. I realize now that what I smelled was how out of control upset I would get during the game and after it. Maybe I’m turning in to the Andy Rooney of Dolphin football fans.  Perhaps it’s the sixty minutes of frustration I endure each game…

Time for a Change, the Hot Seat is Quickly Heating Up

The Miami Dolphins are in a hole at 0-2. Opposing quarterbacks are usually in a big space having a field day, mainly throwing unhurried and unhassled.
