Remember a couple of weeks ago when ESPN stirred the pot by asking the mostly unnecessary question, "What if Michael Vick were white?"
Apparently, we all got the answer on Monday night.
Reporters asked Dolphins receiver Brandon Marshall about quarterback Chad Henne's scrambling ability, and specifically how he may compare to Vick.
"Yeah," Marshall said, "the white Vick."
Henne, in addition to throwing for 416 yards, ran for 59 yards and a touchdown against the Patriots. He led the team in rushing, and he actually took more of a beating while scrambling than he did while standing in the pocket.
Henne also might not exactly be in Vick territory just yet. The 59 rushing yards on Monday accounted for 41.2 percent of Henne's career rushing yards (143) in 33 career games.
"As long as he doesn't get hit and he continues to do that [it's good], because we need that," Marshall said. "It definitely helps us out, as long as he gets down early enough, we'll take it."
