Plays like the overthrow to Fasano in the endzone. Henne was missing simple TD passes if he just makes a college throw. Brandon Marshall singled up on a 5'8" CB, waiving his arm calling for the ball, CB has deep position..throw the ball short. Make it a jump ball. Henne overthrows everyone including the CB. Easy throw and catch, I can make that throw. He missed it. Henne was too quick to pull his eyes off downfield. Often he would have time in the pocket and he would either panic and run or pull the ball down and move to a point where he'd be sacked. As big a QB has he is, he looks afraid to try and make a play and lacks pocket awareness. You see guys like Ryan and Big Ben simply throwing the ball with guys hanging on them. Henne tucks his head in his best ever Dan Fouts imitation. For what its worth, he wasn't that way most of last year and this appears to have been coached into him.
Our coaches preach taking care of the football and not turning it over. Big Ben fumbles as much as any quarterback in the NFL because he's always trying to throw when guys are hanging on him. Henne is just concerned with securing the football when guys are missing their blocks. I'd much rather have a quarterback tuck and go down instead of taking a nasty sack or making a bad throw.
As far as you making some of these "college thows", it's easier said than done. If I'm not mistaken Marshall tripped and flat out fell down on that play. He was trying to draw a penalty instead of catching the pass. If Marshall would have done a better job of staying on his feet that ball would have been there. It was a good throw, it was in a spot where only Marshall could have caught it. This whole concept of just throwing it up is silly. Good quarterbacks do take shots down the field, but they do it smart. They put the ball where only the receiver has a chance to catch it. No quarterback just lobs it up there and makes it a jump ball. When jump ball situations occur it's because the quarterback underthrew it.
My opinion on why Henne was benched, it's because the offense is stale right now. Sparano is evaluating our offense right now and trying to fix whatever the problem is. He is trying to find out if Henning or Henne is the problem. When Pennington takes the field this Sunday we will find out.
