I believe if both qb's are equal then the rookie qb wins by default. I also believe Henne is strong and smart enough to handle being thrown to the fire. Example, Ben Roethlisberger was able to handle being thrown to the fire. Again Henne has the skills and tangibles to handle being a starting qb in the NFL.

Congratulation to our starting rookies, Langford, Donald, Carpenter, and J. long. I love what I am reading. I hope Henne can join that list soon, that would make me a happy fan again.

I like the young receivers we have here. IMO two of these wr's can developed in to pro-bowlers (ginn & Hagan) so there is no place for some one like Joe Horn in Miami, please no. I apologize for bringing his name up.

I am looking forward to KC vs Dolphins game, go Fins.

Why has the media forgotten about big Jake? He must be settling in and doing a good job, or what?

Just think, old fart Joey Porter is SEVEN years younger than your QB. Enjoy.

Sparano ain't fooling no-one, everyone and their mother knows Pennington is the starter, nothing but pipe smoke.

Yeah right, I'll bet the farm that Pennington starts unless he is hurt.

Great point...last I heard the Pats were not happy with their back-up QB situation. Can you imagine the Cheatriots signing him to back-up Brady and getting all our offensive ingo/signals? I sure can....DONT CUT BECK MIAMI PLEASE!!!! Trade either him or McCown, but please dont release either of them!!!!!!!!!!

For now, it looks like pennington will start, Henne will most likely be starting in game 10 or so. Beck will most likely be 4th. quarterback. Look for McCown to be traded sometime during the season. Some team, possibly the packers will lose the starting quarterback. McCown is game ready.
Sparano is having trouble saying anything of substance. That's Parcells' doing.
Joe Horn? He was cut by Atlanta. There will be a few good receivers after final cuts are made. As will there be a few decent backup linemen.

Only problem is Earve shows up and plays at a high level. If he keeps this up he'll be cut or traded.
