Bill Parcells reportedly "disappointed" in Chad Henne

A training camp that started sunny in Miami has given way to an increasing number of dark clouds over the Dolphins franchise.  Add this comment from NFL.com’s Vic Carucci to the mix:

“I will say, for whatever weight this carries, that Bill Parcells is very disappointed in [Chad Henne],”  Carucci said on WEEI on Friday.  “But that’s not what made Bill resign his position or anything.”

Unfortunately, the show’s hosts cut Carucci off with jokes before the listeners could learn more, but the point was made.  Carucci is tight with Parcells, and you can be sure those concerns extend throughout the upper brass of the organization.

There have been other red flags for Miami over the last month.   Parcells abruptly left.  Much-hyped rookie linebacker Koa Misi lost his starting job.  Cornerback Sean Smith lost his job to Jason Allen.  The offensive line is unsettled.

None of these issues are backbreakers; it’s only the preseason.  But they combine to make a team that should be on the rise enter the season with a lot of bad vibes.

Henne’s development is the key.  He slogged through an inconsistent preseason and training camp,
dimming some of my optimism that the Dolphins were going to be a playoff
team this year.

I still think Henne can be a very good NFL starter.  But Carucci’s statements make you wonder whether we’re going to hear more columns touting Chad Pennington for the starting job if the Dolphins start slowly.

    The Dolphins’ success hinges on Henne’s ability to get it done. He showed promise last year, but he also showed some bad decision making. I think the Dolphins and Henne will be good, but Parcells’ comment is troublesome. It could be a motivational tool, but if that is what Henne needs to perform, then I am not sold on him.

    “I will say, for whatever weight this carries, that Bill Parcells is very disappointed in [Chad Henne],”
    So Parcells is already making his excuses.

    Parcells has ALWAYS been overrated.
    Jerry Jones is a better football talent evaluator than Parcells. Is Parcells disappointed in the freak atmosphere?
    Jerry Jones would N E V E R bring in J-Lo, the tennis steroid sisters, Marc sissy boy, a has been wino, and name his palace after a lame drink.
    Miami Dolphins is not a football club, it’s a traveling vaudeville act.

    Jerry Jones is a better talent evaluator then Bill Parcells? If it wasn’t for Bill Parcells 100, 000 plus Dallas fans would be watching there team struggling to not come in last on the largest Stadium screen in North America. Dallas is where they are right now because of Parcells. Jerry Jones couldn’t evaluate football talent unless someone is holding his hand.

  13. promichael says: Sep 10, 2010 8:06 PM

    When Bill Parcells was hired he called the NFL a league that requires talent acquisition. I’m just curious at what point does Bill Parcells hold himself accountable for the players he chose in the draft and free agency. Sometimes choosing big slow players does not work. Look in the mirror Bill your also quite big and perhaps getting a little slow in the head. Great move to step down and give control to Ireland and Coach Sparano!

    Give me a break! Jones is another owner with a lot of money that thinks he is god’s gift to football and is a carnival act instead.

    Jerry Jones personifies the “texas asshole” that the rest of the country despises (believe me i know, i live in a ski town in colorado). Parcells is just trying to motivate Henne. The beautiful thing is, the Phins have 3 capable QB’s.

  17. dezertdweller says: Sep 10, 2010 8:09 PM

    Henne is not the Answer at QB…
    He has happy feet and looks very rigid and skittish while in the pocket – he rushes his throws and his body language speaks volumes in a very negative way…. got a very detailed play by play review of him against the cowboys – and you can bet your ass I stayed away from Brandon Marshall because of it (FF Draft) and will continue to do so until the Answer get’s in there…. Watch out for a TO like blow up by Marshall!
    By the way – no one else saw this typo: BILL”S” PARCELLS….

If you know one thing about the dolphin is that they love to rotate, you don’t even follow dolphins training camp everyday you barely know what’s going on down here.

    Parcells didn’t bring them in. J-Lo and Marc bought a piece of the team along with some other celebrities and that’s why the Miami Dolphis is a traveling vaudeville act.
    I think Henne will fold this year. Based on history, if they start Pennington, he’ll at least get them to the playoffs.

    You’re just jealous. Cowboys suck and overpaid for that crap stadium. Also, without the Herschel Walker fiasco trade, Troy and Emmit wouldn’t have rings.

  23. FinFan68 says: Sep 10, 2010 8:20 PM

    I, as a fan, am disappointed in the Dolphins’ decisions of late. Getting rid of porter and Taylor was smart but unpopular. The draft was pretty good, getting Marshall/Dansby/Nolan were great moves. Getting rid of Ginn was dumb but understandable. Since then…questionable at best. Why take on a bunch of Cowboy rejects? Hope it works out but I have my doubts. The O-line last year was pretty good even though they were often injured. As a unit they were good in whatever mix they fielded. Now, after the moves, huge question marks. Grove and Smiley were good when they got on the field. Losing Ness and Martin was not smart either. As for Henne, it would have been good for him to explain the rationale for his disappointment. In preseason, the unit looked sluggish but Henne looked sharp most of the time. His passes were on time and in the right spot for the receivers to make plays. There were A LOT of drops and Marshall was leading the way on that. I doubt that will continue. All throughout the preseason, Henne has been lauded by the coaches and beat writers. Parcells may be disappointed but i will reserve judgment on Henne until later on in the season that counts.

  24. YourJustJealous says: Sep 10, 2010 8:20 PM

    How many Super Bowls has Dallas won with Jerry Jones as owner?
    and how many of those were won with Parcells as the head coach?
    I rest my case you dumba$$es

    @YourJustJealous: “Parcells has ALWAYS been overrated.
    Jerry Jones is a better football talent evaluator than Parcells. Is Parcells disappointed in the freak atmosphere?”
    Yeah sure, Jerry Jomes built that team, he found Jay Ratliff and Jason Ferguson in the 7th round, and he also got Miles Austin and Tony Romo as UDFA. He also drafted Spencer, Spears, Witten, and half of that team.
    How stupid do you feel now?

  26. godolphins says: Sep 10, 2010 8:31 PM

    I just read something in a dolphin forum that said that Vic Carracci also said that Parcell wasn’t interested in drafting Pat White.

    I’m sure Bill is not as disappointed in Henne as Dolphins fans are in him. Stepping down and then throwing the starting QB under the bus right before week one. Capitol L = LOSER
    Kind of looks like he’s still on Woody Johnson’s payroll.

  37. NYJALLFINGDAY says: Sep 10, 2010 9:09 PM

    And still the Dolphins fans have the audacity to troll the Jets boards. Yeah, I get it. We have an intense rivalry, and I cherish it. Football wouldn’t be the same for me if the Dolphins didn’t make me foam from the mouth at times. But where is the justification? I hear so much about division titles, overall win percentages, ect. But what came of it? Squat. The Dolphins have ONE more Superbowl over the Jets. And that came 35+ YEARS ago. That’s a long time. Sure, not 41 years like the Jets, but I’m pretty sure off the top of my head it’s been 38 years. THREE YEAR DIFFERENCE. 46-42-1 doesn’t seem to mean ANYTHING to these Dolphins fans. All I hear is “har har har fat rex sanchoke sweep jests har har har.” Once again, where is the justification?
    We’ve had bad draft picks in the past, no doubt. But in this day in age? I’d LOVE to compare Jets/Dolphins drafts picks year 2000 onwards. We don’t have a melt down in our front office. In fact, we have a front office/coaching staff confidence and unity that is arguably the best in the history of our franchise. We can sell out our games without the opposing team giving us help. And I don’t wanna hear the PSL stuff either. Nobody but extreme die hards who have the money to blow would spend so much on something so rediculous. PSL’s arent exclusive to the Jets either, and neither is PSL’s being hard to sell. The Giants are floundering at that too.
    We have a quarterback that has a closest match to the one currently behind center in Miami. We have a great running game and offensive line, certainly comparable to their Miami counterparts. In fact, it wouldn’t be a stretch to say the Jets have the better versions. You have ONE amazing wideout and the rest are mediocre at best, while we have a group of average wideouts. Our defense is absolutley incredible, while yours “couldn’t stop a nosebleed,” in the words of Rex Ryan. Also, I hear so much about the Jets backing into the playoffs, but strange, I never hear anything about the role Miami played in that one. All you had to do was WIN, but you lost, and gave us our chance. The difference between Sanchez and Henne is that Henne didn’t lose games for the Dolphins, and his meltdown came at the end of the year, and Sanchez lost us at least 2 games, and strengthened at the end of the year.
    And no, I’m not coming here to troll all the Miami fans, I would just like to know what the deal is, and why you’re “oh so superior” to us. Can someone PLEASE talk to me about Jet/Dolphin football without the terms “fat, jest, joke, 4-12 ect.” being included in the reply? Because I’d really like that.

  38. Drat says: Sep 10, 2010 9:11 PM

    You can only be disappointed in Henne if your expectations were too high. For many of us, we’ve never understood the Henne experiment at all. This article is very good at pointing out the concerns in Miami. I think they are headed to be one of the big failures of the year.

    No a whole lot separates Henne from Sanchez. What Sanchez has that Henne doesn’t is a team around him. The Dolphins are not good. The Jets are contenders.

    Here’s a great twitt from a dolphin reporter: KLV760: “Bledsoe was Parcells guy, never won a title, Romo was Parcells guy, no title. Who cares if Parcells doesn’t like Henne.”

  44. db3300 says: Sep 10, 2010 9:31 PM

    “Dallas is where they are right now because of Parcells. Jerry Jones couldn’t evaluate football talent unless someone is holding his hand.”
    It was Jones who over-rode Parcells when Bill wanted Marcus Spears with the first pick instead of DeMarcus Ware but was hoping Ware would still be there with their other 1st round pick that year. They got “lucky” considering Parcells got his man but it was Jones who pulled the trigger on Ware with the 1st pick. The game passed Parcells by at least 20 years ago. You may not like Jones but he has hit on more picks than he’s missed – especially over the last 10 years. It was also Parcells who picked all of those bust offensive linemen in the first 3 rounds.
    If you’re going to rag on him when he screws up, at least give him credit when he makes the right move and his most of his moves lately have been right. Take a trip back through the draft and count how many late round picks and UFA have become starters.

    I don’t think what Carucci said is true. But what’s more disappointing is when your “brain trust” swings and misses at a 100% clip in free agency. Releases a 2009 #2 and #3 in 2010. Makes fools out of themselves with the Dez Bryant thing. Plays started way too deep into the 4th preasesson game getting their ONE stud player hurt. Just saying that IF Parcells is disappointed, which I think genus not, there’s alot in Dolphin-land in which we can be disappointed.

    It’s a relief to hear the negativity raining down on Phin fans after all the cheet they dish out on the Jets and Pats. Henne in particular was an assclown when he told the media that Tim Tebow is not an NFL QB talent. Ha! Tebow will be starting when Henne is benched. It is Henne who is overrated.

    I wouldn’t put two time come back player of the year
    Pennington out to pasture yet either.
    Maybe everyone can breathe easier now without Bill there to look over everyone’s homework.

    Does everyone forget, he threw for a shade under 3000 yards in just thirteen, without a number one wide out. he also the reason they beat, the jets and pats on mnf. he’s going into his first season as a starter, with more positives than negitives, he’s got an elite wr, and possibly the best running duo(when healthy) at his disposeal. chad henne will be fine.

    You guys are SERIOUSLY in danger of Jumping The Shark… and you don’t even need to be. The football season is underway. There will be news every day. You don’t need to spit out this nonsense.
    Anybody who knows anything about football knows that Chad Henne is in no danger of losing his starting job, and that he is more important to the Dolphins franchise than a washed-up figurehead like Parcells.
    Parcells is 80 years-old and will skip town at a moment’s notice. Henne is a young, rock-solid QB with a future.

    Am I the only person who watched the final preseason game against Dallas? The Cowboys had no starters and their third string quaterback play the entire game while the Dolphins starters played the first quarter and a half. Eight minutes into the second quarter, the Cowboys where ahead 7-3. Sam Hurd torched Sean Smith for a T.D. and Victor Butler beat Vernon Carey for 2 sacks and a forced fumble. Unless the Cowboys are better than the 08 Patriots, the Dolphins are probably 3rd at best in that division.

    Has Bill Parcells done ANYTHING in this league without Bill Belichick doing all the grunt work behind the scenes? EVERY SINGLE playoff game Bill Parcells coached and did not have Bill Belichick for DC, he lost. End Of Story.

    Henne stat from Athlon Sports
    Fifteen qualifiers may have had a higher completion percentage than Chad Henne’s 60.8 … but none was more accurate (65.2) on third down with between three and seven yards to go.
    Again I am a jets fan! but no S_IT talking here!
    2010 NEW YORK JETS PREVIEW
    AFC EAST FORECAST: 1st
    The Jets’ objective is to be 23 minutes better than last season. They came that close to the Super Bowl in Rex Ryan’s first season, blowing a third quarter lead to the Colts in the AFC Championship Game. Instead of standing pat, which would have been the easy thing to do, the Jets performed major surgery on their roster, acquiring several high-profile players.
    LaDainian Tomlinson. Santonio Holmes. Antonio Cromartie. Jason Taylor. It almost sounds like fantasy football, but the Jets’ only fantasy is winning a Super Bowl, something they haven’t done in 41 years. They have the talent, not to mention a young quarterback with plenty of upside, but it’s going to be a challenge to integrate so many new parts. The unabashed Ryan, of course, is predicting big things.

  63. Ripp says: Sep 10, 2010 11:28 PM

    Lets put things into perspective here. The offensive line is a mess, the coaches don’t even know what they have at defense and the special teams is back to square one. Yet Parcells is disappointed in a 1st year starter at QB? When he came to Miami, he came to put his stamp on this team and it always been Parcells guys that were picked or signed. He should be disappointed in himself and not the players. The guy is a joke!
    Someone said Henne had happy feet and that has been true this preseason, the thing is he did not have happy feet while playing in regular season games last year. That tells me he dose not trust his OL and really who would? The OL is suppose to be one of the best in the league yet they are playing like the same OL back in 2007. IMO they should have kept the OL in tact from last year until someone better comes along. Incognito is not clearly better then Smiley and Berger is not clearly better then Grove.

    Henne will never be anything but mediocre, if that. Parcells knows it, I know it. Question is; why don’t the idiots know it?
    Oh yeah, they’re idiots.

    Well, from week to week, it’s Parcells hated Pat White or Bill Parcells (and Bill Belichek both) loved Pat White from NE media.
    Methinks the media has far less of a clue what’s going on with Ross, Dee, Parcells, Ireland, Sparano than they care to admit. To the point where they make up stuff they think they believe and say it is so.

    “I will say, for whatever weight this carries, that Bill Parcells is very disappointed in [Chad Henne],” Carucci said on WEEI on Friday
    ………………………………………………………………
    so really your headline is misleading as Carucci made the comment NOT Parcells

  69. edswood says: Sep 11, 2010 12:20 AM

    So in two years and a training camp that Parcells was with the Dolphins, we heard not a word from him. Now his mouth pieces are leaking out info to protect his legacy and seperate himself from the Dolphins. Leaving his hand picked successors out to dry. Way to stay classy Bill. But us fin fans should be used to it. With Jimmy Johnson having quit on us, Nick Saban, and now Parcells. And to cheer up Dolphin fans even more, don’t forget that Carl Peterson has next.

    OK, so if the team that plays in Dade County, Florida, has a quarterback controversy, that means we’ll have two hanging Chads and a possible Tye (Thigpen) at QB. Too bad the Dolphins don’t have Reggie Bush and Frank Gore battling for a job.

    Know one knows what Bill said. All this talk is bull shit. After the first game we will know if Henne is bad as some say, remember this site is nothing but a rumor mill, can’t believe anything they say. Bill p.s. Tuesday will give us a better idea of who has what.

    I didn’t see this reported by any local Miami media. Where is this coming from? This whole story sounds like some BS, Bill’s words is getting twisted again. PFT loves drana!!! This site is like TMZ.

    All I gotta say is after they crush the Bufblew Bills, everyone’s gonna love Henne!

  76. Popeye says: Sep 11, 2010 9:26 AM

    carucci has always been parcells bitch

  77. NFLGREEDLEAGUE says: Sep 11, 2010 9:32 AM

    @smithopher – Yes Parcells has done enough for Miami alright. The clowns he left in charge have created such high player turn over it’s destabilized the team. The total gaffes in free agency as well as the draft are laughable. But the blind keep believing the Tuna’s infallible due to his little leaks intended as propaganda in his desperate attempt to save what’s left of his failing legacy. Here’s a short list and remember all these free agents got moderate to huge guaranteed money.
    Ernest Wilford, Josh McNown, Justin Smiley, Eric Green, Gabril Wilson, Jake Grove
    Damn I can’t even remember them all. But that’s right he’s not accountable. His hipocracy in signing substance abuse policy violators that are “Parcells Guys” ie Jason Ferguson & Ricky Williams, while getting rid of stand up guys like Jason Taylor tops the rest. The sooner the trifecta are out of Miami the better, it reminds me of JJ leaving Wannstedt in charge, how’d that work out for ya?

  78. Playtowinthegame says: Sep 11, 2010 9:39 AM

    Parcells should be disappointed in that defense they put together. Anytime your picking Carpenter up off of waivers that is never a good sign

  79. Playtowinthegame says: Sep 11, 2010 9:53 AM

    Than you must be horrified about Sanchez. Henne is 10x the QB Dirty Sanchez is, and Fat Rex STILL has yet o beat HENNE and the PHINS! Get ready to get SWEPT again Yet fans. I can’t wait to hear all of you losers whine when the Yets start the season 0-3.
    —————————————————————
    Thats what is funny about fin fans. As A Jet fan I know our weakness is at qb. Fin fans talk about Henne as if he is Tom Brady. They are both mediocre at best until they show something more. The only difference between the two is one has a stacked defense that can cover up a young qb’s mistakes and the other team doesn’t. Jets fans should hope our defense can navigate us through our first few weeks and let Sanchez get more confidence. Hopefully we will see the Sanchez from the playoffs last year.

    bad reporting… and pft must be jets fans.. this post has been up for almost a day now! geez

    he sucked at michigan too. Doesn’t take a genius guys

  82. cunninglinguist says: Sep 11, 2010 10:47 AM

    As soon as the wheels fall off koa and somefans disappear…typical.

  83. harshy says: Sep 11, 2010 10:52 AM

    Henne is fine as long as he’s not playing Ohio State.

  84. Caligula says: Sep 11, 2010 12:03 PM

    Tom… you said
    Jones is another owner with a lot of money that thinks he is god’s gift to football and is a carnival act instead.
    Parcells is a guy who had a lot of money at his disposal (thanks to owners Huizenga and Ross). He knows he’s “god’s gift to football” and Miami is lookin’ like clowns of the AFC East right now, so you have plenty in common with Jones. All I know is this, what Parcells knows is questionable. He’s never won anything without Bill Bellichek and has had very moderate success in Dallas and Miami without him. Parcells signed Rick Mirer (bust) and Neil O’Donnell (bust) to big contracts when he was with the Jets (I don’t have to tell you how that turned out). The truth of the matter is Parcells as a “personnel guy” is below average at this point (he’s not better than Tannenbaum of the Jets). Parcells wastes a lot of money on “buster” free agents and hits on less than 45% of his draft picks.
    As reported on this site…..
    Miami cut center Jake Grove on Thursday, just one year after the signed him to a five-year, $29.5 million contract with $14 million guaranteed. It goes down as one of the worst signings by any team in the last few years.
    Worst maybe, but just one of many. Want proof???
    The regime’s turnover in 3 years. Keep an eye on the “guaranteed” money and you DO THE MATH.
    Gibril Wilson (cut) five-year, $27.5 million – $8 million guaranteed. Ernest Wilford (cut) four-year deal worth $13 million with a $6 million guaranteed (cut), Justin Smiley 5 years $25 million, $9 million in guarantees (traded), Will Allen 3 years $16.2 million – $10 million in guaranteed money. Sean Smith 2nd round pick & former starter (benched), Phillip Merling suspended for trying to beat up his 5 ft tall baby momma (that was b4 he fell out of favor with the coaches & tore his knee up), Josh McCown 2 years $6.25 million (cut), Pat White a 2nd round pick (cut), Patrick Turner 3 round pick (cut), David Martin, Matt Roth, Shawn Murphy a 4th rounder, Donald Thomas (cut or traded). In the last 3 years, no football team has more arrests than the Miami Dolphins… 15 players and 1 assistant coach. Bill Parcells got a pass for turning a 1-15 team around with an 11-5 record (with the easiest schedule in the league that year). All truth, all verifiable. Any questions?

    And, of course, there is no follow up after the statement.
    Also, something I’ve noticed: Rosenthal loves writing anti-Dolphins news-pieces.

  86. NYJALLFINGDAY says: Sep 11, 2010 3:34 PM

    Well, to be fair, Koa said he had to tend to his fantasy league, and he wouldn’t be around but the absence of SomeFans is quite humorous indeed.
