Henne can make the throws...he's made some dumb ones, and bad throws...but the fact is, he isn't getting much help. When the defense only forces ONE punt, and that end ups netting Baltimore a first down, your receivers continue to drop passes, and your running game is as inconsistent as it comes...it's tough to be the greatest quarterback that ever played.
This is his first full season, and he's already shown the ability to make all the throws...throws that Pennington hasn't been able to make in his entire career, and more consistent than Thigpen ever will be. Henne already has more yards than John Beck, Cleo Lemon and A.J. Feeley had with the Dolphins combined.
He's got a completion percentage that is only 2nd in Miami history, quarterback rating that is only 3rd. He threw two consecutive 300 yard games, which was the first time that happened since 1998 when Dan Marino did it.
Listen guys, compare to the guys Miami has thrown in and out at the quarterback position the last 10 years, Chad Henne is great. And he's only played in 24 games, 21 of which were starts. That's just over a season.
Through those 24 games, Henne has 4875 yards, 21 TD, 24 INTS, 0 fumbles lost, and 38 sacks
Joe Flacco through 24 games- 3905, 22 TD, 17 INTS, 2 fumbles lost, and 37 sacks
Flacco has less yards because Baltimore has a more consistent running game. Flacco has had Todd Heap, and a veteran receiver in Mason. Baltimore's defense has certainly been a lot better than the Dolphins over these periods.
Chad Henne is very good...he's just at the point where he can take the team on his shoulders and win games by himself...and some of you are frustrated by that.
Let's play some defense and catch the football...Henne will look so much better then.
You know we have had our disagreements, mostly due to the Big Ten rivalry, but I must say, this is the BEST POST YET!!! Excellent points, well said sir!
