This one’s going to stir it up.

Did Chad Henne have a better 2010 season than the Dolphins pass defense? Almost all of you would say no. And understandably. Henne struggled at times and as all quarterbacks do, got the brunt of the fans’ frustrations thrown upon him. The defense, meanwhile, had a resurgent year under new coordinator Mike Nolan and we continued to see guys like Vontae Davis and Sean Smith mature in the secondary.

With the 2010 season in the rearview mirror for the Miami Dolphins, I figured it might be fun to tally up the gameballs that we have given out all year long. After every game, win or lose, Jim Mandich, Joe Rose, Jimmy Cefalo, Sam Madison, Keith Sims, John Congemi, and I have all given out gameballs to the players we felt had the greatest individual performances for the Dolphins in a given game.

Following last night’s 31-23 loss to the Jets, Coach Tony Sparano met with the media today to continue discuss what went right and wrong against New York.

A big topic, of course, was the Wildcat offense, which Sparano categorized as “average” last night and when asked if he thought it was a hinderance to the flow of the offense, he simply said, “No.”

Other notes:

-When asked if he thought chemistry between a quarterback and wide receiver is a big deal, Sparano said that the main thing it does is allow a QB to start to look for his WR in key spots and that it seems like that’s the developmental path that Chad Henne and Brandon Marshall are on.

With the Dolphins now 2-0 and the win over the Vikings basically in the rear-view mirror, Tony Sparano met with the media today  to discuss the win and move past Minnesota and onto the Jets. Unsurprisingly, the play of the defense was a major point of discussion, and in particular, the play of the secondary. The coach said that although the entire unit played very well, it was CB Jason Allen who graded out the highest.
