Personally, I don't find the lack of audibles that big a deal. The team just needs to execute the play.

Q. Does Chad Pennington have greater freedom to call audibles than Chad Henne and does the list of plays change based on the quarterback change?

DAN HENNING. "Same. Same. The list of plays are based on who we're playing. I don't think we'll have a different scope of things. You obviously know different people see things differently. They read things differently. When it comes down to the quarterback you have judgment that takes place so you might see him do something that you didn't see [Henne] do. You also might see him do something that Chad did do that might not be as good. That's what you live with whenever you make that type of change."

Really? So if the Dolphins are in a run play and the defense stacks the line with 8 or 9 guys, you don't think it would be a good idea to give the QB the option to change the play? You think the offense should miraculously block more guys than they have blockers?

Or vice versa... if you're in the redzone and you expect the defense to drop 8 and you're in a pass play, you don't think it would be a good idea to have the option to change the play to a run?

Makes no sense at all. Henning better be gone next season.

I must say I'm very curious to see how Pennington performs if they aren't changing anything on offense.

So if he is telling the truth Henne had as much freedom to call an audible as Pennington will have. They both could/can call audibles. Its up to them to do it.

I honestly have a hard time believing this. I've seen Penny audible lots of times. Either Henning is being misleading here, or Henne really doesn't have a clue.

Well this begs the question from me-don't they communicate via headsets between the booth and QB? Anyone know the details like does the signal shutoff with 15 seconds on the playclock or something like that? Is Henning not adjusting when he sees the defensive positioning and personnel?

In the coach-to-quarterback communication system, timing is everything. The coach calling plays must stay one play ahead, already knowing his next call depending on the previous play's outcome, in order to avoid a delay-of-game penalty from not delivering calls fast enough. And the faster a coach can relay a play to the quarterback, the more time he has to include some coaching points before the system automatically turns off at the 15-second mark of the 40-second play clock.

"Maybe a little reminder such as, 'We're in the red zone, don't take a sack; Take a peek at the X receiver before you go to the strong side,' " former New England Patriots offensive coordinator and current Notre Dame coach Charlie Weis says.

Thank you AQNOR. This makes believe Henning is more of a bozo than I thought before. It seems he has in his head what plays he is going to run and is too stubborn to adjust. Makes me even more interested how Pennington would be as an OC.

I think Pennington could easily find himself in a QB Coach or some kind of assistan in the box making reads.

I have never question that part of his game, and I think his football mind is way more in tune than Hennings.
Heck, I gotta wonder if any part of Henning's mind still functions at 100%.
His press confrences reminds me of grampa simpson rants...

Anyone ever listened to Henning? You gotta admit its pretty close to this....

Where does it say he has no option? That's an assumption you're rolling with and it has no foundation.

It says guys will see things differently, not that these guys don't have options.
