Post Bigger problem: Henning or Henne
Dan Henning's playcalling and gameplanning has gotten old. It's absolutely ridiculous how poor he calls a game.

That said, Henning doesn't make Henne under throw Hartline twice for 2 potential TDs. Doesn't make him throw it into double coverage passing up a wide open Fasano. Doesn't make him throw a completely inaccurate pass out into the flat on 3rd and 1. Doesn't make him not go through his progressions AT ALL.

Henne will likely be starting next season, and I'd like to see what Henne can do with a new OC. But my patience has grown very thin with him.

I don't think it is certain that Henne will start next week, let alone next season.

Going to have to agree w/ Rich. I am willing to bet if CH has a poor showing next week he will get benched. We'll just have to wait and see.

In favor of Thigpen?

No way. So long as Thiggy is the backup, I get the impression he only sees the field under because of Henne injury.

Answer to thread...

Of the 2 options, Henne, but neither is our biggest problem. Our biggest problem is our inability to run the ball. Henne needs help from the running game, and he ain't getting it.

Henning in the grand scheme of things....

Henne will make a great # 2 QB. Henning is useless...

A successful running game doesnt help him hit WIDE OPEN WR's

Post Re: Bigger problem: Henning or Henne
Calling a run sweep on 1st and 10 on the game deciding drive with under 2 mins left, resulting in a gain of a whole 1 yard says it all … and I’m pretty sure Dan Dierdoff referred to it as a ridiculous play call !!!
Henning is only confusing and outsmarting himself as when to call a running play versus a passing play … let’s face it he’s sure NOT confusing the opposition with some of these calls, he is only hurting the Fins Offense
These questionable calls have happened way too often this season and have killed many a drive (and momentum)

That’s not to say Henne should get off scott free either, with some of his bonehead non-reads and poor decisions/throws. But we’ll give him the benefit of the doubt with the conservative game-plan and restrictions the coaching staff has bestowed upon him. WE now need to unshackle Henne over the last 4 games to see whether he can make the reads, adjustments, and throws (especially against the Jets and Patriots) NO more conservative football for 2010 – no more playing not to lose – now the FINS play SPOILER ... and we'll see once and for all whether Henne has got what it takes, and if he is our future.

How is it that Henne is shackled?

Show your work.

We also ran on 3rd and 8 and 3rd and 10. We passed on a 3rd and 1. No first downs.

Both are to blame.

That would be dumb. Henne needs to finish the season to see improvment. Either way, we need to draft a QB high if there is value. I hope the coaching staff gives Henne the full reigns of this offense to see what he has. This season is over, believe it or not. LOL!

Post Re: Bigger problem: Henning or Henne
The CBS team slammed Henne in the post game for his comments saying he knows he is a starter. They basically said you earn it with your play and he hasn't, implying that he shouldn't think anything is handed to him. Pretty rough comments with Marino, Esiason and Cowher very critical.

Henne is going to have to finish this season on a better note and have a great offseason to warrant getting a shot again next year.

And that's a reason why I said in another post that we need to draft a QB high in this draft...just in case. Right now, he doesn't look like a starting QB in this league. Very inconsistant and he's not improving...not a good sign. He needs competition.

He made that call earlier in the year and got like 35 yards on an RW run...

I am nnot sticking up for Henning because his time has come imo....BUT execution is the biggst problem

Why would you feed in a run play?? It's got to be a pass/pass option, not pass/run option.....

Henne's problems are twofold, and neither factor is the playcalling.

Henning does NOT tell Henne to throw the ball away to the other team.

Henne is not getting any help from the running game.

There are plenty of tmrw in which a running play is the right play, even on 3rd and 8.

In this league it's about execution, and Henne did not execute today. His receivers didn't help him, and neither did the running game (it hasn't helped very much this year with few exceptions), but Henne made plenty of his own mistakes.
