Chad Henne leading Miami over Buffalo

Submitted by tjyoung on October 4th, 2009 at 5:59 PM

Just showed Henne throwing a TD pass to put Miami up 24-3 over Buffalo. Is this his first career start? I hope there are many more to come.

Stats so far (6:51, 3rd Qtr)
13/21, 126 yds, 5.2 avg, 1 TD, 0 INT

Keep it up!

I have always liked Chad. I think he has the makings of a decent pro QB. Hopefully he can keep it up!

I love seeing former M QB's have success in the NFL.

Go Blue!

...to improve their pass protection schemes or get some linemen that are better at executing pass protection schemes.

Henne's been sacked 6 times for -29 yards in this contest. This is against Buffalo, who has a middling pass rush at best.

If Miami intends Henne to be their franchise QB they need to step up and fix this fast because the current level of pass protection is putting his shoulder at serious risk, not to mention the elevated risk of concussion that comes with each sack.

It's good to see Chad finally getting the chance to start some (even if it's only because of injury). Unfortunately he has 2 fumbles, but 0 lost fumbles, so at least he's not turning it over. I hope he can keep it going next week.

Trent Edwards is really getting a raw deal, first they make him deal with TO then they can his OC (also a Stanford alum like him, incidentally). Buffalo continues to be the stepchild of the division.
