    True enough. The Phins could win the SB this year and it'd be because of this and because of that. Nevermind that you still have to win the game regardless.

    actually, I'm just arguing against the opposite view: according to Jests fans, yourself included: buttfumble was great against the Chargers, and the Jets completely dominated Miami in that game.....

    truth is that each were pretty average performances.

Ironic, its unacceptable for Henne to struggle on the December 20th, yet for buttfumble its fine on the same exact day.

    Henne did indeed get a playoff team...well, most of one. He got the discount version, or the playoff dolphins-lite. Diet Dolphins maybe? Anyways, the minute he got handed the keys, parts starting falling off as injuries built up. Even then, he fought us out of bottom of the league and got us within spitting distance of a playoff berth.

    Fair enough, you missed some field goals. So what your saying is, your special teams struggled. You needed someone to close the game. Someone in a position of immediate influence to that game that could tip the balance and cover up for the struggles of his teamates. And he didnt. And the game was lost. Interesting, i wonder if there was any pressure that the person could have overcame to achieve victory.

    I get the moral of the story: when the New York Jets are firing on all cylinders, Mark buttfumble plays his best football. When the team struggles, buttfumble plays his worst football. To me, its more pressure filled when your team is in adverse situations, not merely what week on a calender it happens to be. Mark buttfumble happened to be good when it was convenient.
    Did buttfumble have 3 in a row like henne? Once we had destiny in our own hands did mark throw away any games?

    of course a QB can have a bad game but when you compound it by putting back to back bad games together you start to have a problem.


    buttfumble lost key guys as well- he lost a huge playmaker in leon, he didn't get braylon until game 5, he lost cotch for a game and he was playing hurt many other games, greene had injury problems, we lost kris Jenkins for the year, we had a revovling door at the corner opposite Revis. Let's not act like it was smooth sailing for us.

    Henne played against a self-professed great defense and produced better than buttfumble did against an average defense, with the aid of a dominating run game....

    yet that still somehow adds up to Henne being completely owned.....and buttfumble playing his best football in the most important game.

    go figure...
    Now we see the lack of running game excuse

    Show me where I said buttfumble was great against SD? I said he made big plays for su that we needed to win that game and that he played much better than the #s show.

    Also, another interesting point to make is that Henne's numbers might be a little different if he wasn't being rotated in and out from the wildcat - particularly in the redzone.

    One aspect of it that I don't like is that it puts him in a bad position if it doesn't go well. It breaks his rhythm and often requires him to come in an obvious passing situation.

    Weighing the good with the bad, I love the Wildcat, but if we are going to throw stats around, let's keep that in mind too.

    Miami did have the number 1 rushing offense in the league before the Jets did as well earlier in the year.

    We run wildcat plays too, not as much but we run them and you had the #1 rush team early in the year, we took over early on and never let it go. We were #1 when Ronnie went down though obviously your #s would have been better had he stayed healthy.

    Henne had one poor game out of the last three. The others were average to decent (first half vs PIT). You've said before to take a bad game or two away from buttfumble and his numbers are better. You could apply that same logic to anyone on any team too.

    dude, I didn't bring the excuses to the table....note it was in direct response to your '3 non-offensive touchdowns' EXCUSE. so we can compare the games with or without the excuses...but note that a strong running game is going to help a quarterbacks performance (which is what I was trying to discuss) than non-offensive touchdowns.

    buttfumble played his best in our biggest games

    I think he played better in SD than Indy

    NYJ's 3 biggest games: playoffs @ Cincy, @ SD, @ Indy
    so let me try and put all of this together....he was playing his best football in those three games, and the SD game was better than the Indy game, but you aren't saying tha the was great in the SD game. so at his best, he was only at most, great in 1 football game all year (the CIN playoff game). and that was damn impressive to you.

    ...looks like you have a real gem on your hands!

    During the Falcons game he threw a pick while trying to win the game. I recall with great detail during the second Miami vs Jets game Mark had a chance to win the game and overthrew his receivers. Still remember the Bills game when he threw a pick in overtime(not to be outdone by your punter, i suppose). Multiple times during the season he had a chance to win with the game in his hands, and quite literally threw them away.

    And buttfumble did indeed have 3 games in a row where he played miserably: weeks 4-6, 1-8 td/int ratio, 429 yards, passer ratings of 51.9, 50, and 34.5.

    Henne might not have pulled off the wins the last 3 weeks, but he certainly dug us out of holes and gave us a chance. Our defense was giving up close to 30 points. During the Jets "must win" game at the end of the season, your defense gave up 10 points.

    The Jets lost a few players, but were in better position the dropoff wasn't as drastic. Miami has been a less talented team to begin with, losing key positions(QB, RB, LG, C, DT, the only non-rookie CB, RB/KR) was much more devastating because we didnt have more talent surrounding it.
    I understand your grasping at straws to support your caretaker. Yet when the game is in buttfumble's hands, he folded. Consistently. When that smash mouth ground game is running hard, when that offensive line opens up holes you can drive a truck through, when your defense is smothering, when your special teams is kicking everything through the uprights from any part of the field, buttfumble has does a great job. When they "struggle"(especially defense, though again, it hardly looks like struggling in comparison) and its up to buttfumble to pull it out...it hasn't happened.

    Mnphinfan linked a brilliant write up from Phinsider.com at the beginning of the thread. Ill post it again for those that don't feel like fighting through 9 pages:
    Some numbers to consider beside Henne leading in Int's, completions %, and QB rating.
    Number of 300 yds games career
    Henne: 3 buttfumble 0
    Number of games with 20 or more completions:
    Henne 5 buttfumble 1
    Number of TD passes in the fourth quarter of a win.
    Henne 3 buttfumble 0
    Number of 4th quarter game winning drives…as in led the team to a TD or FG which gave them a lead in the 4th quarter which held up and won the game.
    Henne 4 buttfumble 0
    Chad Henne has 7 career wins in 13 NFL starts
    Mark buttfumble has 10 – in 18 NFL starts (including playoffs)
    You can argue, with out a lot of difficulty, that Henne “won” four of his seven Dolphin victories by doing the things you want a quarterback to do. Move the ball in the fourth quarter and create points when you need them.
    The Jets did not win a single game on Mark buttfumble’s arm. In their 10 wins whith him under center he passed for over 200 yds once…that was on opening day. In five of his 10 wins buttfumble passed for under 150 yds. In his We all know about the 20 ints, but 18 starts last year buttfumble had fewer than 15 completions 12 times.
    Handing the ball off 40 times a game is not the measure of a great quarterback.
    Winning games in the fourth quarter with your arm is.

    maybe, in your eyes, henne's most important game last year was the one against the jets.....but for the jets the most important games happened after the fins flunked on the season. thats where this conversation is getting screwed up it seems. you fins fans act like the fins/jets games were superbowl wins for you guys.

    How did he suck against SD and Indy/ if he sucked there's no way we beat a team as good as SD on the road and there's no way we lead Indy on the road in the 2nd half of the title game if buttfumble sucked.

    You can look at stats all you want but buttfumble made plays to win at SD, I suggest you go watch a tape of the game then get back to me.



    So stats lie when he has good #s but when he makes plays to win and his stats aren't great then stats tell the truth?

    Yeah, it was just all the Colts DB. buttfumble didn't give a great fake and freeze one of the best pass rushers in the game to buy time to get that ball to Edwards.


    So when Indy goes into prevent and buttfumble gets some #s it doesn't count but when the same happens to henne that shows how great henne is Our O began to struggle when we lost Shonn Greene on the first drive of the 2nd half, we had no threat of a running game and we struggled. He was a ROOKIE QB. What he did in postseason was damn impressive.
    Perhaps the weakest response I have ever had to a post. Do you really want me to blow smoke up your butt and say buttfumble played well against SD and INDY? You think 17 points in back-to-back games is good? You want me to go and watch the SD game again? WTF...You really think I will be impressed by a QB that amassed 100 yards on 23 throws for a 4.3 yards per attempt (YPA) by watching the game again? Why don't you go watch the game again without your rose colored glasses on? The lowest YPA by a starting QB last year was J Russell and B Quinn at 5.23 YPA and you honestly think I will be impressed by a QB with a 4.3 YPA? Please...

    You made the point yourself without a running back buttfumble is SHUT DOWN!!! ZERO points as soon as Green got hurt. buttfumble was a JOKE last year. He was the beneficiary of the #1 running game and #1 defense. Put buttfumble on the Lions and he is lucky to win a game. Let's compare buttfumble numbers with Stafford (QB of a 2-14 team)...

    buttfumble...53.8% completion, 12 TD, 20 INT, 10 fumbles, 3 lost fumbles

    Stafford...61% completion, 13 TD, 20 INT, 4 fumbles, 1 lost fumble

    Face it, buttfumble was a DISASTER last year who is extremely careless with the football. Put a decent QB on the Jets last year and your team may have won 14 games last year and make it to and perhaps win the Super Bowl. buttfumble gives new meaning to the word OVERRATED.
