Sparano Says QB Chad Henne Has A Good Chance To Start

The Miami Herlad says despite all the talk, there’s a number of people, including Tony Sparano, that think Chad Henne can lead the Fins to the next level.

Although the Dolphins will add a veteran quarterback, they simply do not know if they will land someone who would beat out Chad Henne. That point was reinforced last week when coach Tony Sparano was asked if there’s a good chance Henne will be the starter this season. Sparano immediately said yes — a contrast to the “we’ll see” response he often gives to what-might-happen queries. If Cincinnati trades Carson Palmer — the Dolphins are pessimistic — or if Denver takes a midround pick for Kyle Orton, then everything changes. And it’s possible any of a number of free agents could beat out Henne, though ESPN’s Chris Mortensen said it’s unlikely Miami will sign Vince Young. “The one thing we’ve had time to do is a lot of homework and study,” Sparano said from his golf cart at a team charity event. “And I would tell you when you put Chad’s numbers up against some of the better quarterbacks in our league, his numbers are pretty impressive. They hold up. Now what has to happen? We have to cut down the impulse throws, the interceptions that happen late in the fourth quarter.”
