Job Security For Tony Sparano Tied To Dolphins QB Chad Henne’s Improvement?

Head coach Tony Sparano might have gained financial security with the two-year extension he got this offseason after a clumsy attempt by Dolphins ownership to find his replacement but as we know, contract extensions don’t insure long-term employment.

Sparano and the Dolphins have aligned themselves fully with Chad Henne, who didn’t step up to the task last season when the team threw its support behind him as the starter (14 starts, 15 TDs, 19 INTs, five fumbles, two of them lost) and got him wide receiver Brandon Marshall in a pricey trade. Henne has the potential for sure after he’s stepped up in the offseason to arrange team workouts that have been well-attended. Henne has a new offensive coordinator in Brian Daboll but he hasn’t been able to work with him because of the lockout.

The Dolphins have solid talent on both sides of the ball and could very well compete for the playoffs in the tough AFC East but if they really flop and Henne doesn’t show much more than he already has, there could be turnover at the top — and at QB.
