    Yep, our team is old. We will be lucky to get one competitive year out of a team w/ old guys like buttfumble, Greene, brick, Mangold, Cotch, Edwards, Holmes, Keller, Harris, Scott, revis, Cromartie,...

    Clearly Pennington is better than buttfumble, and I think he's still better than Henne. I don't have a problem at all with Henne starting though.
    Henne was "thrown in" w/ zero pressure at 0-3. buttfumble had pressure all year. I think overall henne had a better year last year BUT buttfumble stepped up when we needed him most and henne stepped back when you needed him most.

    This doesn't mean Henne won't be able to play under pressure but last year he wasn't able to. I think both QBs are going to be good based off what I saw last year.

If Henne took over in 2008, he would have been taking over a 1-15 team, not a 9-7 team.
    but he didn't take over a 1-15 team and while we were 9-7 we had a HOF QB at 9-7. Was buttfumble great? of course not but he had a good season for a rookie. I am very happy w/ our QB situation as I think you guys are. It is possible that both of our teams have solved their QB question for a while.

    MARK buttfumble IS NO CHAD HENNE
    from The Bottlenose



    Though the NFL, ESPN, ESPN2, ESPN Classic, FOX, CBS, NBC, CMT, HGTV, Spike, FX, Bravo, TBS, TNT, CSPAN, CNN, MSNBC, CBN, E!, Hallmark, PBS, QVC and Telemundo networks would have you believe otherwise, Jets Quarterback Mark buttfumble is NOT the second coming of Johnny Unitas.


    Rarely do you see such fanfare over a signal caller with passer rating of 63 and almost twice as many interceptions than touchdowns. But there he stands, a good looking fella in a very major market. A Saturday Night Live cameo already? At 23 years of age, and after one season? This guy is on the fast track.



    I’m going to go out on a limb and say that Henne will be better. Every year from now on. Better. Chad did more with less last year. No Dustin Keller with his 4.4 speed. No Braylon Edwards, with his All-Pro pedigree. Hell, did we even have a Jerricho Cotchery on our roster? Maybe Bess.


    buttfumble had a pretty nice arsenal of targets last year, yet it was Henne who notched three 300+ yard games, compared to none for Mark. Sure, Henne threw two more picks than touchdowns (12 TD, 14 INT), but at least one of those was slapped directly at the defender by Ted “Gabrielle Reece” Ginn.



    You ever go to see a crappy comedy, but they put some actually funny bloopers over the end credits? That’s Mark buttfumble’s rookie year. A nice showing in the playoffs against Indianapolis (padded by an 80-yard blown coverage against Braylon Edwards) doesn’t erase a twelve touchdown, twenty interception year.


    Starting in week five, buttfumble should have Santonio Holmes to throw to as well (assuming Holmes can keep his iPod off), and with a year under his belt, I do expect Mark to improve on his numbers. But Brandon Marshall in Miami looks to be a bigger game-changer for Henne.



    I think Chad makes the leap. He already did much more, with much less. Henne probably won’t wind up shirtless on the cover of Men’s Health, but give me Chad over that pretty boy any day of the week

    Sorry good sir, I'm not buying that bold statement. Are you going to theorize to me that over the full 2008-2009 season Henne NEVER practiced with the first team? The NFL is a league where the backup QB is always one hit away from being in the game. Henne had to have practiced with the first team at some point during his first NFL season as he was the 2nd QB on the roster. Henne probably knew the playbook a lot better having studied it over an NFL season. Henne was probably able to watch more tape of NFL teams during his first season. He learned from one of the brightest QB's to ever play the game in Chad Pennington. He wasn't thrown into anything.

    Mark buttfumble had to learn an NFL playbook for the first time. Had to get used to his timing with the receivers. Had to adjust to the speed of the game. All this after only starting 1 year in college vs Henne's 4 years as a starter and a year as a backup learning the NFL game. So Henne has experience over buttfumble and that is why he played better. But does that mean he is the better and more talented QB of the two? No, it doesn't.

    And of course Chad is a better QB he's a 10 year vet. For goodness sakes...Joe Theismann was playing better than John Elway when Elway was a rookie (1983). Elway (famously) lined up behind a tackle(or was it a guard?) his rookie season. Doesn't mean that Theismann was more talented than Elway. Not comparing buttfumble to Elway or Pennington to Theismann. Just saying to try to be objective and keep things in perspective.

    I didn't come up with this it was Phrozen Phish from Phinsider.com did, but this is probably the best arguement for Henne that i have seen in this debate.


    Some numbers to consider beside Henne leading in Int's, completions %, and QB rating.
    Number of 300 yds games career
    Henne: 3 buttfumble 0
    Number of games with 20 or more completions:
    Henne 5 buttfumble 1
    Number of TD passes in the fourth quarter of a win.
    Henne 3 buttfumble 0
    Number of 4th quarter game winning drives…as in led the team to a TD or FG which gave them a lead in the 4th quarter which held up and won the game.
    Henne 4 buttfumble 0
    Chad Henne has 7 career wins in 13 NFL starts
    Mark buttfumble has 10 – in 18 NFL starts (including playoffs)
    You can argue, with out a lot of difficulty, that Henne “won” four of his seven Dolphin victories by doing the things you want a quarterback to do. Move the ball in the fourth quarter and create points when you need them.
    The Jets did not win a single game on Mark buttfumble’s arm. In their 10 wins whith him under center he passed for over 200 yds once…that was on opening day. In five of his 10 wins buttfumble passed for under 150 yds. In his We all know about the 20 ints, but 18 starts last year buttfumble had fewer than 15 completions 12 times.
    Handing the ball off 40 times a game is not the measure of a great quarterback.
    Winning games in the fourth quarter with your arm is.
    When I die I want to hire the Miami Dolphin's to be my pallbearers so they can let me down one last time.

    Can't judge ANY QB by his first seasons...gotta let him grow into being an effective QB (although Jamarcus Russell took the wrong approach of growing into his position). Henne also had much more college experience than buttfumble. The sophomore slump is real as teams now have tape on the QB and start breaking down their tendencies.
    Do it the old school way!!! POUND 'EM!!!

    How wasnt he able to play under pressure last year? Our offense was FINE our D is what blew us games....He didnt have any 5 INT games the way Dirty buttfumble did...and he did help bring us back "under pressure" against that awesome Jets D....buttfumble should have had a WAY better year then he did..he had weapons around him...Henne didnt...

    Wait you mean the NFL playbook that requires him to turn his body and hand the ball off?
