How many teams in the NFL can boast that its roster possesses at least three quarterbacks who have started more than 10 regular season games?
Pardon me. That was one of those questions I ask knowing the answer.
Four teams can, and the Miami Dolphins are amongst them, joining the Vikings (if Brett Favre plays again), Pittsburgh and Oakland, which actually has four veteran starters in Jason Campbell, Charlie Frye, Kyle Boller and Bruce Gradkowski.
But enough envying of the Raiders (that hasnít happened very often over the past decade) because the Dolphins have a pretty decent set of arms themselves.
Chad Penningtonís put together an accomplished 10-year career, and last I checked heís still the NFLís most accurate quarterback in league history. Tyler Thigpen flashed from time to time in his one season as Kansas Cityís starter, and during his lone game as a Dolphins in the regular season finale against the Steelers. And itís not all his fault he only won one games in his 11 NFL starts. Thigpen did throw 18 touchdowns that season for a lackluster Chiefs squad that hasnít exactly gotten better without him.
How much can Henne improve this season?
And Chad Henne, the anointed starter for the 2010 Dolphins, showed plenty of promise last season while leading his squad to a 7-6 record in his 13 starts.
