The QB situation
Chad Henne returns, but will he be the only contender for the job? He led the team to a 7-9 record last year and had more interceptions (19) than touchdowns (15). With the whole organization reportedly on thin ice, it might have to get another QB or hope Henne blossoms this year. Will the pressure get to Henne? As one player said, "He tries to do things perfect all the time and needs to just loosen up."
How to use the new weapons on offense
Brandon Marshall came over from Denver last offseason and went from 10 touchdown receptions in 2009 to just three last year. He needs to get back to his old form. Adding Reggie Bush and rookie RB Daniel Thomas to the mix should help. The QB has got to distribute the ball to these players intelligently and put points on the board. Last year, the Dolphins had nine games where they scored 15 points or less. It's time to open up the offense.
Make the kicks
Last season, Dan Carpenter missed 11 field goals (seven between 40 and 49 yards). They lost to Buffalo by three and Cleveland by three, and Carpenter went a combined 1-for-6 in those games. A team with a good defense, which held nine opponents under 20 points, absolutely needs the kicker on target.

Top position battle

If Chad Henne struggles at the start of the preseason, the Dolphins' fanbase could be calling for Matt Moore to get a look with the first-teamers. Should Moore get a shot at No. 1 in camp?
