If this is what Henne could do with Ginn, what can he do with Gates?
Get off the guy's back already. He's no Marino. But guess what? No on is! No one will ever be Marino. Ever! You know why? Because Marino was a freak. That's why. No one will ever be able to do what he could do. You want to talk stats and championships - blah blah blah. But watch them man play - he was a artist.
Now Henne aint Marino. So you want to throw him to the curb for.... for.... Kyle Orton? Carson Palmer? I mean - fine if you think Orton or Palmer are better QBs. You have the stats to prove it. But Palmer isn't the same after his injuries to his throwing arm and Orton is so far only proven to be average. Henne has made us suffer through some growing pains for sure. But is he really that much worse than the realistic options being championed right now? Besides - You're already invested a year and a half in him. And most great QBs take that long to get good. Why not suck it up and wait and see how he does this year? If he sucks again with a revamped O-line and a burner like Gates, then let's see Thigpen. Thiggy is just as worth a try as anyone. That's how the NFL works with QBs. You just keep trying guys until one sticks. Sometimes you draft a guy a develop him. Sometimes you get lucky. Let's stick with the guy we've been developing for now. If there's no sign of progress, then move down the line. But everyone other than Henne and Thigpen that is available right now just seems like a waste of time. They missed out on Mallet and Locker. Ponder and Kaepernick are projects. Gabbert whatever. And Newton will be a bust. But Pouncey and Daniel Thomas and Edmond Gates will carry this team into the future no matter who the QB is. And Henne's not as limited as you think.
So stop your cry-babying and support your team. Otherwise go comment on your little Jets blog. I know you'll be back here crying to mama after Henne wipes the floor with the Jets with another burner - this time to Gates instead of Ginn. Henne is 3-1 lifetime against the Jets. Let's see how much you like him when he's 4-1 and then 5-1. Go get behind Sanchez if you think Henne's so bad. See how far that gets you.
