View Full Version : Could Huard have been the man all this time?

This Sunday's game will be quite ironic in a way, don't you think? Here comes Damon Huard - DAMON HUARD - leading the hot offense of the Kansas City Chiefs into Miami.

Damon Huard, who Porn-stache put in the backup role in favor of the immortal Jay Fiedler! After posting a 5-1 record in '99 in relief of Danny Boy, Huard was given a "Thanks but no thanks" from Wanny and shown the door after one post-Danny season. I thought it was the wrong choice back then, but I kinda forgot about it after a while. Huard went into hiding, as a backup on several teams before landing w/ KC this year. Now, there are people in KC clamoring for him to have the job full time!

One thing I remember about Damon was his ability to NOT make mistakes. He could manage games well, and make the big play here and there. Contrast that to the mistakes Fielder made so commonplace, especially in '01-'03 when an extra win each season could have made a HUGE difference!

Is this just another Wanny baffling move coming back to haunt us this Sunday? Granted, Huard is no all-star, but he MAY have been just what we needed in '01-'03. Who knows, he may have played well enough to keep Ricky from leaving in '04 too? We'll never know.

Am I full of it here, or is there something to this?

Man I hate Wanny!!! *******!!!!!!!!

huard shouldve been starting since marino left until they were able to land a qb in the draft......i posted this before as one of the biggest mistakes in dolphin history and i got pummeled by people with their "opinions".....instead of going that approach with huard and then trying to land a qb in the draft, it has been journeymen qbs since then and now were at 2 qbs, both of which their previous organizations were happy to see leave

if he is so good...where has he been??? would WE be expected to wait for 5 years while he figures out how to play? I always liked him, he was freindly at the autograph fence towards the kids and all.. we will never really know.

I think that when Dan left, we should have drafted a QB annually until we found our next franchise QB. The journeyman thing may be effective at times, but we do not do so well in Miami.

if he is so good...where has he been???I know, I know. It's as if he disappeared. All I'm saying is - did Wanny make the wrong choice?? After Fiedler led us to back-to-back 11-5 seasons, people tended to overlook his faults, saying "at least he wins."

But perhaps Huard would have been a better choice in those early Post-Danny years until we found someone else to truly take the reigns.

I guess I'm just thinking what maybe one additional win would have meant in '00-'03. Heck, in '01, it would have meant a bye, with the Patriots playing instead in the first round!

Thought this was timely w/ Huard leading the way for KC this week. Nobody was going to be Danny boy right out the gate (or ever, come to think of it), but Huard may have been a more steady hand and cleaner alternative to Fiedler's errant ways.

Like you said, we'll never know.

I was like "What the Deuce Wanny?" Then, when we had a good year I figured maybe Wanny saw something in Feebs that was worth looking into.

By the time I thought about it again, it was 11/8/06, which lead to this thread.

Sorry but Huard stinks. How he's doing this 11 TD 1 INT thing is beyond me, but if he's so fricking good, why is Trent Green gunna start once he's healthy? Why hasnt Huard been a starter in this league?

He is having an abnormally good year so far. But so what? If he throws for 6 TDs against us, then I'll respect him

I'm really just wondering what he could have done in place of Fiedler for 2-3 years while we groomed - say - Drew Brees to be the long-term starter (one can dream!).

BTW, a story broke today that Herm may NOT start Green when he's ready because his team chemistry is going so well w/ Huard at the helm.

Like I said, Huard stinks. We owned him. Yay

Gee I though You had found your next franchise QB in Daunte Culpooper. Wait and see he'll be a different guy once his knee heals and he can run for his life. :sidelol:
