Dolphins crowd boos Chad Henne, chants for Kyle Orton

Talk about a tough crowd.

As of right now, Dolphins quarterback Chad Henne is the presumed starting quarterback for the Fins this season. But after a poor performance during an intrasquad scrimmage Monday, the 10,109 fans who were watching began booing the former Michigan signal-caller, according to The South Florida Sun-Sentinel.

If it was bad enough to be booed at during a game that didn’t matter, it got even worse when his pass to tight end Anthony Fasano was off-target and deflected. Following that miscue, the crowd began to cheer “We want Orton” in reference to Broncos quarterback Kyle Orton, who the Dolphins had reportedly tried to acquire via trade before the signing of Matt Moore signaled that the team was going in another direction.

In 15 games (14 starts) last season, Henne threw for 3,301 yards, 15 touchdowns and 19 interceptions for a quarterback rating of 75.4. Orton had stats of 3,653 yards, 20 touchdowns, nine interceptions and an 87.5 QB rating in 13 starts during the 2010 season, but it has been rumored that the Broncos are looking to hand the reins of the offense over to Tim Tebow this season.
