Brandon Marshall had a hand in Henne benching

If you don’t think head coach Tony Sparano went to his highly paid receiver to ask him which quarterback he’d be more comfortable with at this juncture of the season then you’re delusional.

Brandon Marshall clearly played a role in benching Henne no matter how much Tony Sparano would deny this and say it was his or the team’s decision.

In the loss against Baltimore when Chad Henne under threw the pass to Brandon Marshall in the fourth quarter and it was intercepted by Ed Reed, the frustration which was written all over Marshall’s face was evident. As he tried to reach for the ball like he was trying to catch a Frisbee in high winds, Marshall clinched his teeth, closed his eyes and took a deep breath almost in disgust of Henne’s bad pass.

That play alone should have signaled Henne’s job was in danger but not many people expected this outcome because of the way Sparano has coddled Henne all season.

There’s no doubt Marshall went to Sparano after the game and complained. In fact, if Sparano made this decision without consulting Marshall then that would have been reckless in itself.

Marshall’s numbers have gone down since he’s been a Dolphin and despite being double covered all the time, Henne’s lack of chemistry with the all-pro receiver sent him to the bench

So they have a problem with being under thrown... and Chad Pennington is the answer? Am I missing something?

Hahahahahahahaha!!! You cant make this sh*t up.

However, this author is a moron. What HC with any pride or dignity goes to his diva WR who in the grand scheme of things is a nobody in this league, to get his opinion on how to the run the team. I'm taking this article as pure speculation based on the way it was written, but I highly doubt that Marshall was part of this decision making process. Especially considering the last time Chad was their QB, they primarily ran the WildCat offense because of his inadequate ability as a QB.

What a joke..

Agreed. This isn't even news. It's nothing but pure conjecture with absolutely no evidence whatsoever to back up the claims that are being made. Besides, anyone who thinks a team makes a decision on it's starting QB based on one pass that pissed off a WR is delusional. There are way too many factors to account for in a QB switch for anything Marshall thinks to even have the slightest bit of impact on their decision.

I think Marshall only having 1 TD has allot to do with this, but I'm not sure that's all Henne's fault.

When we beat them, Marshall looked totally spent and like he was not even trying once they got into the red zone on their last drive.

That was the only game he scored in, and he still owes Revis a kiss.

"Chad Henne's a guy who's more than capable of being an All-Pro quarterback. But again, it's not just him. His destiny is in the hands of others: his wide receivers, his offensive lineman, offensive coordinators, the organization. It's not just one guy. He has to rely on everyone doing his job." - Brandon Marshall.

Definitely sounds like he had a hand in this benching.
