I live in jersey, and I watch both play, neither is better then the other, Henne is able to take control of games by himself better then buttfumble, and buttfumble is a bit more consistant with more quality receivers and a better running game, but neither has been to this point the QB you want to go to war with.
The same OC that once was an OC for a team w/ Jake delhomme at QB and helped them get to a SB. The same OC that w/ Chad P as his QB won the division.
What is happening to you, happens to many fans, just because their team made it deep into the playoffs, they think they know how to evaluate QB or other positions, and think it must be the player they like, instead of evaluating the team and why they did so well.
It's pretty simple, The Jets have no running game.....they have no offense The Jets don't have no offense....they have no playoffs The Jets have no Playoffs.....The Jets start to see that their QB had few big plays, and almost was intercepted 3 times more then heactually was.
Both Henne and buttfumble are in the same boat, to think less only shows you have yet to learn how to evaluate QBs, have to pay more attention, or are waering your green colored glasses too long.
They ran the ball well but they also threw it really well too. Delhomme threw 6 TDs and 1 INT in their 4 playoff games.
You think henning saw henne could play in 2009 then held him back in 2010? or do you think henne's struggles forced his hand?
Luck like the 2 INTs against GB that were NOT INTs, like the 2 dropped TDs that likely would have resulted in 2 more wins. EVERY QB has dropped INTs, it happens.
buttfumble is pretty cool under pressure, he performed really well in close games late and in huge postseason games.
You can say that for pretty much any team outside of 2-3 offenses- most teams need to run the ball. We ran it ok last year, we weren't a great running team. If we relied on the run game we don't make the playoffs last year. in '09 the run game carried the O, in '10 the pass O was more important.
Henne and buttfumble are not in the same boat. The Jets KNOW they have their franchise QB, Miami is still looking for theirs. That's really all we need to know. those that just look at #s think they are close, those that truly understand the game know the truth.
You can make all the excuses about henne being nervous, his failures were on him not the OC.
Can we add the dropped recs, dropped INTs and remove the BS INts he had?
He is EXCELLENT under pressure. The comebacks he led, the agmes he has played in postseason. He may not have good gams now and then but it's not b/c of pressure. he never buckles from pressure.
2nd in attempts, 8th in YPC- not a good combo. We were a balanced team, almost run/pass 50/50.
2009 we ran it 607 times and passes 393 times
2010 we ran it 534 and pssed 525
We needed the pass game to overcome the struggles in the run game in numerous games.
Take away the run like in denver, det, Cle, Houston, Pitt,...
The Jets are set at QB for the next decade, if buttfumble takes a step back this year they won't be looking for a QB but don't hold your breath hoping he'll be bad. He's only going to get better and better.
Do great defenses blow a million late leads? Our D was good to very good, it was not great. You guys o verrate our D and running game to try to make mark look bad. We had a good/very good D and a good running game. We lost the 2 title games b/c of our defense not b/c of our QB.
