Twitter Sounds Off on Chad Henne's First Preseason Game of the Year

The NFL is back, which means last night's preseason game between the Miami Dolphins and the Atlanta Falcons came as a sober reminder that Chad Henne is still looking to go into the season as the Fins' quarterback.

Preseason football is never thought to mean much, and in spite of a 28-23 Dolphins win, Henne still played like a total goober.

Henne threw two interceptions in his first four throws, and although commentators were quick to blame tight end Anthony Fasano for the first interception, we'll remind you Fasano's shoulder blades don't have hands.

Henne's passing antics quickly became the subject of Twitter jokes, and here are a few of the gems:

Just for the record -- and I am NOT a Michigan fan -- in Henne's last college game, played in the state of Florida, he put up 40+ points in a win over Tim Tebow and Urban Meyer. Last year, Henne took the Dolphins to Minnesota for a win over Favre and the Vikings, to Green Bat for a win over the eventual Super Bowl champion Packers, to New York for a win over the mouthy Jets, and a 23-22 last-second home loss to the very tough Pittsburgh Steelers. Henne's problem was that 1-7 record at home. I say give him another year. The Dolphin defense last year was sixth against the run and seventh against the pass, and I think they're better this year. So let's see.


Okay, Chad H. 2011-12 is still throwing like Chad H. 2010-11. As a long suffering Dol-fan, I was finally able to take off the brown paper bag at the end of the game and celebrate a win.
