Never thought who I would see at top of the stats...

I checked this Sunday morning to see where our players rank, and I see Chad Henne at the top of the QB category!?!  What strange twilight zone was I in?   I thought to myself, "is this a dream."

http://www.nfl.com/stats/categorystats?tabSeq=0&statisticCategory=PASSING&conference=null&season=2011&seasonType=PRE&d-447263-s=PASSING_YARDS&d-447263-o=2&d-447263-n=1

 In fact, for the preseason up to week 3 he is:

#1 in yards

#6 in comp. %,  

#1 in yds per comp

#4 with the longest pass

T#2 with most passes over 20yds

#1 with most passes over 40yds

#5 with QB rating.

Now for the disclaimers...  I am not a Chad Henne fan, this is just the preseason where no one goes all out, many times he went up against 2nd teamers, and defenses are vanilla and typically don't game plan or blitz like they do in the regular season.

But in thinking about it now, this couldn't be better considering the following; our o-line can't block a door, new O-coordinator, new playbook, no OTA's.

I don't think this will necessary translate into success in the regular season, but in past years, I haven't seen anything close to this.  In fact, this is the complete opposite that I thought I would see.  I have a very skeptical eye to any thing that happens in the preseason, but this can't be bad.  Other QBs are playing against the same competition, and they haven't done as well.  I just hope Henne lands in the 10-20 range as far as QBs go and I think we will have a shot at the playoffs and 9 to 10 wins.  

I have seen more excitement in this preseason than I felt in the past 2 years.  I just hope they can do a fraction of what I have seen so far in the preseason games, and we might have a chance of a winning season.
