Scott wants to end Henne’s day early.
The Dolphins’ run game, especially the Wildcat, had a big night and generated most of the buzz against the Jets in the team’s Oct. 12 meeting.
But Henne also was terrific in his second career start, throwing two TDs and posting a passer rating of 130.4.
Scott wants to make the Dolphins one-dimensional by leaving Henne seeing double.
“I want to hit him and get him out of there,” Scott told The New York Daily News. “That’s for anybody who touches the football, period. It’s that type of game. Write it down however you want to write it down.”
Scott told the News’ Rich Cimini that his plans don’t include cheap shots.
“You don’t have to do something dirty to get somebody out of there,” he said.
The 2-4 Dolphins are better this time around. The 2009 Dolphins have a sounder run game, offensive line and a quarterback (Henne) who can challenge defenses down field. The run defense is stronger and LB Joey Porter has help rushing the passer, beginning with Jason Taylor, who is fifth in the AFC with 5 1/2 sacks.
The kickoff coverage unit ranked last in the NFL at this point last year and the punt coverage team wasn’t far behind. Not this year.
But the Dolphins also have 10 turnovers, including four in the season-opener at Atlanta and three last Sunday that led to 20 points for the Saints. Meanwhile, Miami has just eight takeaways, a season after finishing plus-17 and tying the Giants with an NFL-record 13 turnovers.
“We’re better at some critical areas, really big areas,” Sparano said. “Now where are we not better? We’re turning the ball over and we’re not getting enough of them away.”
Sparano also could add dropped passes, including three late in Sunday’s loss, to the list.
