This group went from average to great with the lone addition of Brandon Marshall. His presence makes the entire offense better. At 6’4″ 230 he is tough matchup for any corner.
Although Marshall has proven to be elite on short passing routes, such as slants and short ins, he still has the acceleration and and top-end speed to create separation down the field. Throw in the arm of Chad Henne and that spells trouble for the defense.
This usually means there is going to be help over the top from a safety, which further opens up the running lanes and allows other receivers to take advantage of favorable matchups. Henne is going to have a ton of fun playing with his new toy.
He is also a devastating blocker when he wants to be…
Miami has quality complimentary receivers as well. Greg Camarillo, Davon Bess, and Brian Hartline are all similar in that they are quicker than they are fast, with great hands. There are no burners on the outside anymore with Tedd Ginn‘s departure, however, Henne should still have plenty of opportunities to chuck it long on deep corner and post routes.
Anthony Fasano dropped off last season from his solid year in 2009. Fumbles and drops were a routine component of his game. Look for backup Joey Haynos to push him for playing time.
Haynos is big (6’8″, 270), physical and should have plenty of chances to prove himself. He is still learning how to be an effective end on the next level. This group is probably the weakness of the offense. They aren’t bad, just nothing to gush about.
