    Dolphins owner Stephen Ross has put a significant amount of pressure on the shoulders of quarterback Chad Henne. Ross, speaking at a local high school in Miami Beach on Saturday, said that he expects Miami to play in Super Bowl XLV and that Henne could become the greatest quarterback in team history. "Chad has been the greatest quarterback the University of Michigan has had," Ross said, "and I'm sure that I'm hoping, as is everyone else, that he goes down as the greatest quarterback in Miami dolphins history –- and you know what that will mean." Dan Marino spent his storied career with the Dolphins. In 14 games (13 starts), Henne threw for 2,878 yards with 12 touchdowns and 14 interceptions while 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."

    I don't know if anyone can be better, but I am excited to see what he can do with a real WR.

    So misleading. Read the actual quote.

    He says he HOPES he turns out better than Marino. Big freaking difference than he think he COULD be better than Marino.

    I gotta go to Miami. Sounds like they got some very good crap down there. I got 10 on a 20 sack.
