Dolphins | Brandon Marshall, Chad Henne at odds?

Fri, 31 Dec 2010 06:29:29 -0800

Miami Dolphins WR Brandon Marshall said Thursday, Dec. 30, that he is unsure whether QB Chad Henne and he can work better together in the future, according to Brian Biggane, of the Palm Beach Post. "We had some opportunities this year to do that and we didn't get it done," Marshall said, "so I guess we have to evaluate what we did this year and see what we can improve on. See if we can become good before we can become great." Marshall also implied that offensive coordinator Dan Henning has been too conservative in his playcalling. "You just have to let it go," Marshall said. "Don't worry about the consequences, just throw it up and see what happens. Let's live and die by it." Marshall said the team should use him the way the Atlanta Falcons utilize WR Roddy White and the Detroit Lions use WR Calvin Johnson. "That's what I'm used to in the past: Guys believing in me," Marshall said. "You make plays like that, you build confidence in each other and you get a snowball effect."

"There's so much bull that goes along with the NFL. This is one of the toughest calls I've ever had to make. I could play until I'm 40. But I've always felt like that in the offseason, if I start to feel like maybe it isn't for me, then maybe it's time to say, `Never mind.' " Johnson added that he will not participate in learning a new offensive system in Charlotte. "I'm a California guy. My kids (ages 11 and 8, they live with Johnson's ex-wife) are here. You ask me to come in there in March -- nope. You're taking valuable time away from me and my kids," Johnson said.

Panthers | Henning Flexible in Offensive Approach

Mon, 05 Sep 2005 08:57:00 -0700

Darin Gantt, of the Rock Hill Herald, reports Carolina Panthers offensive coordinator Dan Henning stressed how the team's offense will emphasis the running game, but the club will be open-minded within their scheme this season. "We went into last season the same way went into '03," Henning said. "We picked Stephen Davis up because we wanted to be a power running team. Now if we had a power running back we would like to head in that direction again. But if we don't have that guy or are not capable of blocking the way we did in '03, then we'll have to adjust to the capabilities of those around and it may be a different style of running or it may be running back by committee. We always want to run the ball to set up everything that we do."

Updating previous reports, the Charlotte Observer reports the Carolina Panthers probably won’t use their first-round draft pick on a QB unless in the unlikely scenario they trade up to select USC QB Carson Palmer. “I think there’s five or six guys behind him [Palmer] that have credentials, but each one of them has an area of concern,” said Panthers offensive coordinator Dan Henning. “What’s best for the franchise now, in my opinion, would be to have Rodney [Peete] and to have some veteran competition that may be younger than Rodney, but of a similar ilk – accurate and experienced.”
