I think it would be wise for this team to play Henne this year if he in fact is the future. As a lifelong Phins fan, I am not expecting much this season anyway. Beck clearly is not the answer and McCown is a poor example of a stop gap. They might as well let the rookie take his lumps and gt him the experience. Why waste a year on a journeyman that can't get it done anywhere else. That will just put Henne a year or two behind. Draft em, pay em, and play em!

And you were expecting someone else to be the Number 1 QB in camp... please tell us something we didn't already know.

I agree 100% good point.

I would say the Starters are the guys playing with the First team regardless of what the depth chart says.(i.e. Langford, Hagan, Thomas, etc...) The Trifecta will ensure the best talent is on the field.

Right now it's defeinitely not Beck at QB.

I agree Beck is not the answer. Beck was a reach by Cam Cameron hoping to land another Drew Brees. Clearly the Dolphins missed the boat as Wannstedt passed on Brees by selecting Jamar Fletcher and then Cameron burned a second round pick on Beck a developmentaly challenged QB.

And Saban passed on Brees for Daunte Culpepper. And Cameron passed on Quinn for Beck. And Tuna passed on Matt Ryan for....Jake Long??

Beck will be 3rd string or cut as soon as Henne gets his feet wet.

Doesn't matter. Still no better than 4-12 this season.

LMAO... Matt Ryan is going to be somewhat of a bust Steve. He'll be decent but not live up to his billing much like Brady Quinn.

I agree with Saban passing on Brees for Culpepper.

The Trifecta did the right thing by selecting Henne whom will be a better Pro than Matt Ryan and Quinn in my opinion. The only better QB selected in the 2008 draft than Henne was Flacco whom the Dolphins could not get.

Jake Long was the right pick at #1.

That's funny because many Dolfans still swear that Beck is the guy! Why blame it on Cameron? You all loved the pick last year!

Hey fellow Fin-Fans. That depth chart may not mean much to Sparano, but you and I have been around long enough to know that Beck will be an insurance agent in another state before 2011. I actually drank the Kool-Aid and bought into this guy being the answer for quite some time early on. Bummer. Here we go again, dig in!!!!

I have to agree with you that Beck's days look numbered. I hoped he could be a capable back-up but that is not looking good at this point.

No I didn't love the pick last year. I thought Beck was not worth the second round selection. More like 3rd or 4th but the Cameron must have felt pressured to take him thinking some other team would.

Regardless of how Fans felt about Beck it's the General Manager and Headcoaches job to evaluate and choose wisely. Obviously, Mueller and Cameron did not when they selected Beck.

McCown is under contract for 2 years which is enough time for Henne to take over. McCown is similar to Henne as far as being a drop back passer with a good arm (Henne's is a little stronger). His experience makes him the logical starter at this point until Henne is ready to take over.

McCown is a servicable starter at a salary cap friendly contract in a weak Free Agent QB market. His signing makes sense.

Remember the Trifecta wanted to trade for Derek Anderson but the Brown's asking price was too high combined with the contract Anderson was looking for.

If Henne keeps progressing as he is, Beck will be gone once teams start releasing QBs. The Trifecta will be looking to upgrade their No. 3 sooner rather than later.

why thrown an inexperienced rookie qb in the fire? let him hold the clipboard as the thrid stringer and soon enough he'll be in... I've said it for a while, IMHO, the starting qb's job this year is Beck's to lose...and so far, he's losing it to McCown... and if at the end of the season, both mccown and beck are hurting, then you can think about putting in Henne...

Signing proven backup McCown, drafting Henne with early 2nd round pick, and then inviting Quincy freakin' Carter to a tryout all showed the lack of confidence in Beck by this current regime. I'm still not sure Beck has gotten enough of a chance here, but man he looked horrid last year the bit he played. I know the offense around him sucked but what's the excuse for not holding onto the ball?
