Sparano on Henne’s play

Miami Dolphins coach Tony Sparano commented on how he thought backup quarterback Chad Henne performed when he came in for the injured Chad Pennington.

“I think that Chad made a couple of mistakes in there,” said Sparano. “One of the mistakes was the interception. He actually looked to the right first, they did a pretty good job of sitting on the route there, and then came right to the left, without hesitation, threw the ball out there. That is a mistake he can learn from during the course of this thing.

“Other than that, there were some location issues, throwing the ball with location. Those were the biggest issues during the course of the game from a minus standpoint. From a positive standpoint, he scored 10 points while he was in there on a couple of drives. I don’t think at any point during the game was really flustered at all.

“Thirty something plays. He got hit a couple of times in there. One time we had a mental error up front and [Kevin] Burnett came through the A gap. They made a sack and he wasn’t fazed in the least bit. I thought his look and demeanor for going into the game at that point was very good and his handle of the offense was pretty good. Location, he completed 50% I think. A ball here or there and he is over 60%. He has to do a little bit better that way.”

For the game against the Chargers Henne was 10-19 for 92 yards and had an INT returned for a TD that put the game away for San Diego.
