There are a few guys on this board with that stance right now. A stance that it convenient for the moment I might add. Like I challenged Mak with already, lets see what excuse you have when they do something that you don't agree with.
Convenient? You mine like how you blame everyone BUT
Henne for this years performance so far? ......
What you deem "convenient" is us thinking logically about this move instead of flying off the handle.
Flying off the handle? Ok so if your not happy with the direction of the team or the competency of it's coaches, and express frustration over said issues, your now deemed 'flying off the handle'. Gotcha. I'll remember that and pull out at a convenient time for you. By the way, you were the one calling the season over when we were only 2-2. So don't tell people they are flying off the handle, or unraveling when you yourself have shown a knack for doing the same.
As for your accusation here, it only goes to show how narrow focused you get. You make a ridiculous accusation about what I have said, yet you apparently aren't able to comprehend anything I've said on these forums about Henne. Really this is getting laughable and a bit annoying at the same time. If your going to make ignorant accusations that have no basis, then please stop responding to my posts or I will have to put you on ignore. If you care to continue in an intelligent conversation, quit making ridiculous comments about what I do or don't say
I've repeatedly stated that Henne has lots of room to grow. I've never once said that he IS anything (stud or dud). I've stated that he is still in his evaluative state, and until we've had more time, I'm not going to say whether or not he has what it takes. Obviously he has made mistakes. He has lots of room to grow. Apparently you don't remember me stating that he locks onto receivers and doesn't see the whole field. Or just the other day stating that Henne threw a high pass to Marshall. Just because I criticize the receivers on this team from time to time for not helping out their qb, or the inept play calling of our OC, doesn't mean that I don't think Henne needs to improve his game. I got into a discussion with Rich just a couple months ago (viewtopic.php?f=2&t=2300
) where he thought I was a Henne basher. So just because I don't jive with how you feel on a particular topic, doesn't mean I'm polar opposite of you, or an extremist. Quit being so quick to defend your position and actually take the time to see where the other guy is coming from. This is an internet discussion forum; they don't hand out prizes for whoever 'wins' the argument.
Below are quotes of myself where I have criticized Henne's game.
Henne doesn't seem to have much confidence in his arm. He has the strength and accuracy to put that ball on the money but too often he misses his man or underthrows the ball. That pass to Marshall today when he had two defenders beat by a mile really proves my point. Sure Marshall dropped a pass he should have caught, but he never should have had to slow up for that ball. Henne HAS TO hit his man in stride when he has opportunities like that. We saw it in the preseason when he missed a wide open Hartline, and we saw it here again today when he missed a wide open Marshall. Making that connection was a sure touchdown and would have given our players and this team some much needed confidence, and it might have put the dagger in the Jills hearts early on.
If Henne is going to be the man, he needs to start making those plays now. I do give him credit though for a beautiful pass to Fasano early on in the game. That was a great read and pass.
Henne was horrid tonight, but that doesn't mean we have to give up on him. The guy has only had 16 starts, however he needs to have a fire lit under his butt right now because he is sucking up the field. I don't like the way he locks onto receivers and I don't like the way he only sees part of the field.
Henne was a part of the problem tonight, him and special teams. Oh yeah, lets not forget our team giving up extra yards to crappy players (see Whitehead). I'm not about to abandon Henne, but he isn't getting a free pass tonight, he flat out sucked.
