Seriously doubt it. Even if he wasnt wanted he'd never be cut
You are wrong fans just like him for his story. He had to prove himself first. You dont go undrafted and become a starter w/o proving yourself first.
Besides, you provided no proof of why you think bess wont make the cut, other then stating the 6 names you think will be starters.
Bad read people. More like an ideal for a story than any real debate about why bess would be the odd man out.

@RacerX LSU doesnt seem to have issues getting to the National Championship lately no matter whos the qb.
@jmart Rodgers was a 1st round draft pick ,Flynn a 7th.
Go watch the lions suck it up, and the packers wr's/rb's make plays. It was more the Packers than Flynn. First 3 td's were miss tackle,miss tackle and a free play because of an offsides. Followed by 2 more td's made by great plays by the wr, and another great run on a screen.
People are crazy for wanting to risk the future over a qb whos only had 2 good games in his 4 year career on a well oiled offense that had previously just won the superbowl and almost went undefeated this regular season
"I believe Matt Flynn could win the Dolphins a Super Bowl in the next 3-4 years."
Based off what? His 6 td game? Did you watch it? Miss tackle, miss tackle and a free play for his first 3 td's. The next was a blow out hole and broken tackle for the rb. Then another couple plays by the wr's. People are giving him way too much credit for just 2 games.
It will be telling of flynn is not a dolphin because of philbin. Id rather take my stab in the draft, then gamble on flynn
His names Peyton btw, not "Payton"

wouldnt it make sense to franchise solia again and trade him? Just because hes not in our scheme doesnt mean we should just let him walk.

2 years, 8 months ago on Tony Sparano Least Favorite Coach Among NFL'ers
not sure i think it makes much sense to blame him for not signing Solia to a long term contract and instead overpaid him 12 million just this year. Wouldn't a long term contract pay him more over a longer period of time then hes been playing up to this year?
Also passing on deangelo williams was smart, as hes only got 3.9 yards a carry and is having a bad year for the huge contract he got this year.
I think its kind of sad we didn'tget to see henne play out this year. He was looking very promising but had many dropped balls and td's and was standing in a firing range while still getting 7.9 yards a carry and almost 8 yards a pass this year. He had 4 ints but at least 3 of them weren't even his fault. Go back and check the time and how they happened. Most of the blame goes to the to the defense for being out of shape and the horrible o-line play and butter fingers for wr's we have this year. Not Henne

Yet all last year and last few games people were whining why wasnt marshal getting the ball in the redzone? Why are we throwing to hartline on 3rd down?
Now your all whining about the results. Funny. Guess you got to print something
Im in complete agreemant about columbo, and im curious whos really responsible for keeping him starting at rt.
I dont think its sparano. People keep digging him about the offensive line, but thats not his main job. Whos job is it to fill those postions? Who trains them after?
" if the Dolphins had QB who could pass for 9.3 yards per attempt, they would be a Super Bowl contender."
Henne had an 8.8 that game yet you talk as if it was his fault because he could'nt put points on the board with 40 seconds left. The dude has 100 yards rushing already and nobody is talking about his complete turn around because other players on the team are failing at their jobs. It was a dumb mistake to cut sapp and edds, and i think that had a large roll, along with players lack of dicipline and practice during the offseason. I really dont think its sparanos fault
is it really hennes fault he has had 3 td's in the endzone dropped so far this year along with 11 sacks and hes still producing and now showing hes mobile?
Short memories, all of you. This is happening because players and the media were critical of sparano being too tough during practices and mettings. This year, to try something new, he changes things up and loosens practices and meetings up. Now you folks blindly blame him, when it was the players combined with their lack of self discipline during the lockout that added tot his mess. Please listen to the player, it really is their fault for their lack of preparation and not being able to keep up in the 4th quarters from being gassed.
seems more of hit piece on sparano then complaining about the o-line. Something tells me you arent an avid henne supporter either
