There is no hype, but the anti-Henson crowd must claim there is, so they have some reason to speak out against this player who has done nothing but give it his best shot.
[View Full Quote]I know what happened. You, and those like you, took a stand. When Henson came in, people were legitimately excited - here we had a blue-chip prospect - what's not to get excited about? But there are those, who care more about "calling it" and having something to flaunt, as if that means a thing, than they care about the Cowboys. So you took your stand; whether your reasoning was (a) He is a failed baseball player. This has not worked before, it's not going to work again. (b) His heart must not be in the game, because his first love was baseball, and he chased the money. (c) I didn't like him at Michigan....or any one of the litany of retarded cracks that people who do not want this guy to succeed have come up with to degrade the player.
There is no "hype". There never was. There was excitement, and hope. There is "hype" around Pat Watkins - are you sick of that? I wonder what the difference is?
Give me a break.
There is plenty of hype around this kid. From morons clamoring over him being a #1 pick the NFL draft to morons claiming his average, at best, season in the NFLE shows them anything at all, to morons clamoring for Henson to be given a chance he has never earned like it is a gift. There IS hype to this kid, and if you dont see it, dont talk about it.
