Well since Im not saying that he needs to be benched nor do i think he needs to be Tom Brady in year two, I guess its not safe to assume.
You're saying he needs to make those throws NOW if he is going to be the man. You're not giving him much time or room for development, because it has to be NOW.
Im merely saying that if he is going to be the answer this team has looked for since Marino, he needs tocontinue to show improvement.
That sounds like a far cry from "he needs to make those plays NOW if he is going to be the man". You go from giving him no wiggle room (now or never) to being a lot more patient all of a sudden.
Sorry that all of a sudden you seem to be running away from your initial statement.
Yes he needs to hit open receivers NOW in order for him to be the man in Miami. I don't know why your having such a hard time with this and no I haven't shied from my initial statements, merely clarified them for someone jumping to conclusions. I never said why it has to be NOW did I? I clarified the statement for you because you were jumping to your own conclusions. Again, let me hone the point here. Quarterbacks in this league have a very short window now days. If fans see a qb miss a wide open receiver and the qb continues to do those things, they get very impatient. When I say that Henne needs to do those things NOW in order to be the man in Miami, it is because I see the writing on the wall. If he doesn't give the fans what they want, if he doesn't show the media what they want, if he doesn't win for the coaching staff, all of them will turn on him. Right or wrong, thats the way it is. You use Brees as your example so I will use that as well. Brees didn't truly succeed until he went to the Saints. His last season in SD was pretty good, but nothing like the spectacular successes he has had in N.O.. Henne will need to show everyone this year that he is improving or the natives will begin to get very restless. Add in the factor that this is the Trifecta's third season, and what you get are some pretty high expectations (even if they are unfair to Henne). This may only be the start of Henne's second season starting, but make no mistake, he will be judged harshly if he falters.
So when I say he needs to start making those throws now (hitting wide open receivers), it's not because I will give up on him this season if he doesn't, its because I recognize the reality of the situation in regards to the media, fans, and pressure on this coaching staff to succeed now.
Do you understand me now?
