I say you start Henne and commit yourself to running the ball, even if you aren't getting much in the first half. The run hasn't abandoned the team, the OC has abandoned the run. Run in conventional sets, and throw in the wildcat if you have to, but not if the offense is already clicking and moving the ball without it. In other words, use the WC to get unstuck offensively, don't use it just to add another dimension to an already functioning offense.
I agree, we need to go out and pound the rock. Conventional sets, Wildcat, who cares as long as we're moving the ball. Our offense needs to commit to hammering the football this week, even if it means a slow start. Running the ball will keep the Raiders guessing and open up the play action passing game. The Raiders will tire in the second half if we are successful and that will open up more opportunities for big plays late in the game. If we're not successful and the Raider's defense asserts itself, then we'll just have to hope our defense can dig in and make plays for us.
With regards on who the quarterback should be, the choice is easy. Henne is our starter and he give us the best chance to win. He's more accurate, more experienced, and plays better under pressure. Thigpen had his shot, now it's his turn to ride the pine. The only way Henne doesn't play is if he's unable to.
