Default Phins owner: Miami Super Bowl bound, Henne could be better than Marino

http://www.nfl.com/news/story?id=090...s&confirm=true

If Chad Henne wasn't feeling any pressure before, well, he just might now.

Speaking at a local high school in Miami Beach on Saturday, Dolphins owner Stephen Ross predicted his team would be in Super Bowl XLV and feels his starting quarterback will be a big reason why.

Ross, who went to Michigan, said that Henne has the potential to be the greatest quarterback in franchise history, according to the Palm Beach Post.

And that franchise history includes Dan Marino.

"Chad has been the greatest quarterback the University of Michigan has had," Ross told a crowd of several hundred kids and football coaches, "and Im sure that Im hoping, as is everyone else, that he goes down as the greatest quarterback in Miami dolphins history - and you know what that will mean."

Henne, who turns 25 next month, is entering his third NFL season. He took over as the starter in Week 4 after Chad Pennington was lost for the season with a shoulder injury.

In 14 games (13 starts), Henne threw for 2,878 yards with 12 touchdowns and 14 interceptions. His passer rating was 75.2, which ranked 22nd in the league.

With the lofty expectations Ross has set, those numbers will have to improve drastically -- and fast.

"Chad Henne can handle pressure, that I can tell you," Ross said. "He started at the University of Michigan as a true freshman, playing in front of 110,000 people and leading them to the Big Ten championship as a true freshman. I think the Miami Dolphins have a great quarterback for the future, and I think everybody in South Florida is excited about what Chad Henne brings to this team."

Looks like someone's been raiding Limbaugh's stash of pain meds.

This just in: Al Davis thinks THIS is the year the Raiders go all the way.

I'm not too boned up on my Michigan QB history but I do know that Brady didn't set the Big X on fire during his college career.

Funny stuff. JLo is a minority owner in the Dolphins. I bet if she had said this nobody would disagree with her!

I think Henne will have a good year with the addition of Marshall and their upgrades on defense. He will have many opportunities to score lots of fantasy points, so I think he will make a great backup QB

Numbers are all well and good but if Henne wins a Super Bowl, something Marino failed to do, that trumps anything Marino did as a Dolphin, stats be damned...

Obviously the man is either mentally ill or knows nothing about football. He MUST'VE seen the Marino name and said yeah he'll be better then that bum.

That or the janitor's name is Marino...or maybe he meant Marino the actor...has to be one of those!

Stephen Ross will be appearing at the Laugh Factory this weekend. 2 drink minimum.

This guy is a moron. I was never a huge Marino guy (he was a jerk to his team and always blamed others for failures) but to act like Henne could be better than him or Griese and win a championship is just laughable.

that must be some really good shit that he is smokin'

How can he be considered the best quarterback ever at Michigan when he went 0 for 4 against Ohio State? And as a Buckeye fan I was more than glad to point that out.

Well records wise, probably not, HOFer, no way, but he has a chance to win at least 1 SB, and if you want to say that would make him better than DM, then I can see the owners point. Big Ben has 2 and he isn't any better, but rings walk the walk....

So Broadway Joe has a SB ring...other than that not a whole lot and he's in the HOF (Him being in it is a joke though).

Same with Trent Dilfer. (SB ring at least)

Doug Williams won a superbowl too.

None of those guys are even in the realm of Dan Marino as a QB.

Charles Barkley didn't win an NBA title, but Pete Chillcutt won a title in 94-95 with the Rockets. Does that make him better?
