Chad Henne

What is all this talk about Chad Henne?  Do some of you honestly think he can't develop into a solid starting QB at the least?  The man has a knack for this whole football thing.

My first point is the bland play calling.  We are not going to show our hand in preseason.  Many of times we have just ran a simple run up the middle 2 plays in a row and then expect Henne to bail us out for a third and long.  Well that just isn't a high percentage down for almost all quarterbacks.  We will be using Henne's go-to plays on third and long during the actual season. In addition to that we will not have to deal with as many third downs because I believe our running game will get going, which will allow Henne to establish more of a flow.

Oh and did I mention there is a guy by the name of Brandon Marshall on our team?  This guy is going to make any QB look a whole lot better.  Take a look at Kyle Orton.  His last year with the Bears his completion percentage was 58.5 with 2,972 yards and a rating of 79.6.  The very next year with Marshall his completion percentage was 62.1 with 3,802 yards and a rating of 86.8.  That is a huge increase by any means.  A big percentage of his success of course was Marshall as he caught over 100 balls.

Have we already not seen what this man can do last year??  I remember how everyone was so excited for him this year and because of a poor pre-season we are ready to write him off.  Well I'm not.  After seeing him go toe-to-toe with the Jets defense on monday night and make them look like they were high school players or how about that come from behind against the Patriots?  He has some true star potential.  No matter how far we were behind Chad Henne seemed to be able to put us right back into the game.

Even though I love CP10 we call know he is not the long term answer.  If we put him in now that just takes away from Henne's development.  Henne is able to make all the throws.  Anyone you ask of him he could make it.  All he needs to do is fine tune everything and he will be just fine, trust me. 

The last small point i'd like to make is all the dropped balls.  Many of these dropped balls were for first downs to keep drives alive.  Which would have led to more stats for Henne and more scores for our offense and maybe some of you wouldn't have even had second thoughts.  But now we have to deal with the nay-sayers.  We have no need to worry and if you disagree I'll be the first to say I told you so.
