Complaint department: Henne vs. Tannehill

By James Walker

We get all kinds of interesting emails in our AFC East inbox. This one comes from a Miami Dolphins fan who wanted to vent about the Ryan Tannehill-Chad Henne debate.


James Walker: Thanks for the interesting thoughts, Paul. I agree that most intelligent Dolphins fans know that Henne was not the answer in Miami. He had four years filled with inconsistency and injuries. It was time for both sides to move on, and now Henne gets his second chance in Jacksonville. The Dolphins did the right thing and drafted Tannehill, who should get the next few years to show his worth. It's too early to say whether Tannehill is the answer. But I like some of the things I’ve seen from him. He can make all the throws, and also has a natural leadership ability and calming presence that Henne did not have. Tannehill’s ceiling is higher than Henne's.
