That guy doesn't know the very first thing about football. His articles are transparent attempts at creating controversy. They called that yellow journalism years ago. He's a yellow journalist alright, and in more than one way too...
Did you see how profootball weekly had Henne and Ryan rated back in that draft edition?
They seem incredibly accurate to me, they rated Beck as a career back-up.
They had Henne rated very well. I think he was 2nd to Ryan if memory serves me.
Off topic: I'm not a Romo fan by any means, but I think two things are responsible for some of his lackluster play: (1) he is too 'aw shucks' and doesn't take his position as Dallas QB as seriously as he should, ie he's too immature or childish to really assume a very vocal, commanding position and (2) he got caught up in trying to keep his prima donna reciever happy and well fed with many passes his way (thus taking away from just being a quarterback, reading the defense, and putting the ball in the best place INSTEAD of in the hands of who just wants it regardless if they are open or not *cough* TO *cough*)
armando knows nothing about football.
BUT, i will say this.
chad henne was a 2nd rounder for a/some reason(s) ...
SIG BET VICTIM
Yes, Henne has his flaws. I believe the biggest knock on him was that he tended to stare down his receivers rather than try to look-off defensive backs. After Flacco and Ryan were selected, most of the teams still picking were either satisfied with their QB's or had a player fall to them they felt they could not pass up. So Henne (and Brian Brohm, another highly skilled QB) dropped in the draft. Henne has 1st round talent (as I believe Brohm likely possesses the same, at worst EARLY second round) and he is a very skilled QB. With a little coaching to help him stop telegraphing his throws, and film study (plus experience playing at the PRO level) Henne should be just fine.
I'm guessing your intention was not to rip Henne, but rather question why he slipped into round 2, so please don't take this as me trying to soley defend Henne or rip you for your post. I'm just trying to throw in my 2 cents
From the little I have seen of Chad Henne, I am impressed. I did not think he was that great in college personally, but his poise in the pocket, release time, ability to read blitzes and huge arm all stuck out to me. Of course I had been watching AJ Feeley, Jay Fiedler, John Beck and Sage Rosenfeld, so that doesn't help.
Why can't everyone grasp that the FO requires COMPETITION at EVERY position on the field? White and Henne will make each other so good, and it will play itself out in time.
I'm sure he does. And he'll get it done or he won't.
Armando doesnt know anything the finheaven regular doesnt know. Nobody knows how Henne will turn out. We can only hope.
