According to Ricky Williams, Chad Henne wasn't allowed to audible.
Who would you trust more? Some internet site or a player who is actually in the huddle?
Henning backed it up when asked about it.
Henning never said any such thing. In fact, if you look at his press conference when Henne was benched in favor of Penninton, he said that they have the same audible privileges. Everything stays the same.

That's according to offensive coordinator Dan Henning, who insisted nothing changes in the Dolphins going from third-year, big-armed Chad Henne, who sometimes struggles with accuracy at short-range passing, to 11th-year, not-so-big armed Chad Pennington, precise as Green Arrow in the short and intermediate ranges.
Nothing? Not your communication with the quarterback? Not their input into play selection or freedom to audible?

And the picture clearly shows Henne making an audible.http://www.miamiherald.com/2009/12/07/1 ... phins.html
(look at the caption on the picture)
Perhaps Ricky misspoke, or perhaps he told a little white lie to make teams believe that Henne is hogtied, but what Ricky said is not accurate. Every article you will read on the web which says that Henne cannot audible goes back to that Ricky quote from the radio, but there is simply too much evidence to support Henne having as much freedom as Pennington to audible based on what he sees.
