Re: Happy with the benching of Henne?
This move really surprises me. We know what we have in Pennington, and his career is just about over. If you had to bench Henne, then why not roll with Thigpen for awhile...see what you have there. He never had the weapons to throw to that we have now and the pass protection has been great...and Thigpen is much more mobile than Henne. I think the team should have stuck with Henne and made the decision after the season on whether he is the guy, or whether or not we need to draft another QB (which is probably the route the team takes...and hopefully with our 1st round pick this time). If we had to bench Henne, then I would much rather the team give Thigpen a hard look...Pennington has a large resume of work already and we know just how far he can take us. I suspect we will win more games with Pennington in though...not that it will matter. I am pretty sure we are looking at 7-9 or worse.
