Make No Mistake,  Miami Will Compete For Division Title

Miami Dolphins' owner Stephen Ross was saying something along the lines that his young quarterback, Chad Henne, was going to be the best QB in Dolphins' history. 

Apparently, Mr. Ross has no sense of his team's past.  The Dolphins are one of a only a handful of teams that have two former quarterbacks - Bob Griese and Dan Marino - in the Pro Football Hall of Fame.

But that does not mean that Ross has no clue.  If you follow this game, you'll agree that he is on the right track with those comments in that he has one of the game's best young quarterbacks, but he's way too early to the party with those lofty comparisons.

But he is not wrong in his optimism.....

Chad Henne is often compared to another Michigan alum, Tom Brady, and his talent has been mentioned in the same breath as some other non-first-round picks such as Drew Brees, Matt Schaub and Tony Romo - some of the best QBs in the league.

Let's not forget that the Dolphins did Henne a solid this past off-season by acquiring All-World WR Brandon Marshall. Forgot about that, didn't you....?

On defense the Fins have a bold, new look. They hired veteran DC Mike Nolan and brought in a lot of new faces.

In the draft, they used seven of their eight selection on defense. It appears they have chosen well: DE Jason Odrick, A.J. Edds and Austin Spiller; S Rashad Jones, CB Nolan Carroll and DL Chris McCoy.

In addition, the Dolphins did not sit on their hands in free agency by bringing in the heavily coveted Karlos Dansby and Tim Dobbins to play inside linebacker.

Keep in mind, this is a Bill Parcells team. Last time I checked, the man knew his business. Do not take this team for granted....
