    If any of you watched the game Saturday night, I'm sure you remember that Pepsi commercial, I think it's hilarious even though I HATE Pepsi.

    Anyway, for those who missed it or weren't sober enough to remember it, here is the gist of it:

    A Roman soldier and his assistant ride up to a large group of slaves working around a deserted area surrounded by cliffs. Some are in shackles, maybe all are, not sure. Anyway the soldier and his assistant ride up and announce to the hundreds of slaves, "We found this lunch bag, containg a sandwich and a Pepsi, and it's still cold. The name on the bag is Spartacus. Is ther anyone here named, Spartacus?

    As the slave named Spartacus begins to rise to feet, another beside him rises quicker and announces, "I'm Spartacus!"

    Then another and another and another...you get it. Then the two Roman soldiers look at each other like they are confused, then the assistant says "I'm Spartacus" . The lead soldier smiles, looks at him and declares, "I'm Spartacus!" and downs the ice cold Pepsi! Hillarious!

    Anyway, in the movie from which this was taken from, Spartacus's army of slaves has been defeated by the Roman consul Crassus. The penalty awaiting every one of the former slaves is death by crucifixion. Crassus puts out the offer that all of them will be spared and returned to their lives as slaves if just one of them will identify the living body or the corpse of their leader, Spartacus. As Spartacus is about to stand to identify himself, the man next to him quickly shouts, "I'm Spartacus." Another stands up and cries out, "No, I'm Spartacus." And in a few short seconds every man is on his feet calling out, "I'm Spartacus!"

    Anyway, now that it sems quite clear that Tony Romo is going to be our backup QB for this year, how many of you LOYAL Henson fans on this board wil rise up on behalf of your beloved Henson, at this crucial time when Henson is about to be crucified. I want to see you post "I AM HENSON!" in response to this thread, I think Henson would appreciate it!

    Save your boy, Henson, now! Bill might spare him (yeah right).

    PS: anybody want to call the ticket and let them know we're doing this for Henson. Dale Hansen would just love it AND it would be a good way to get cowboyszone.com some free publicity!

    Let's see you do it...just for fun of course!

    PSS: if the tables were turned, I would do it for Tony Romo.

    Where have all the staunch Henson supporters gone? I know he's had some setbacks so far in camp/pre-season, but many of you guys who have been repeatedly telling us that he's the "QB of the future" are now mum.

    This board was littered with "Start Henson" threads last season and all summer long, and now the crickets are chirping. What gives?

    I still think Henson has a future with this ball club, I also like Romo and think he deserves to get the backup spot at this point. Sorry to disappoint but I tend to pull for all of our guys really makes no sense in rooting aginst our own players.

    Weird thread. I'm not worried about this year. It's about a career and I still think Henson will have a good one here as our QB. It takes time. Good luck to Tony Romo if he has won the job as Bledsoe's caddy.

    Don't claim to fluent in Hostilese, but I believe the above translates roughly as "I am Henson."

    I tell you now, this thing is far from done. You are asking for people to stand up and proclaim, "I am a Hensonite!"

    Rubbish. Get a clue, there is no such word as Hensonite.

    I listened to the pre-game last Saturday and I thought Jerruh said something very interesting. He was asked if he were disappointed in Henson and he said yes. He said that he had hoped Henson would be challenging Bledsoe for starting time by now. He said that the talent was there. He indicated that in practice (7 on 7 Drills) Henson was by far the best. He graded out best of all the QBs. He said he just needed to translate that into game situations. Lastly, he said that they would be very patient with him. Said that he would get the time to develope. This, to me, did not sound as if there were plans to give up on Henson.

    I think that those who are try to claim victory here might be in for a bit of a surprise eventually. This Henson/Romo thing is not over. There is a plan, IMO, for Henson.

    You do not disappoint. In fact, I completely agree with you on this. Maybe he will eventually be "the guy", but not at this point.

    This is exactly why you don't mindlessly support one guy versus another based on scouting reports, pedigree, and draft status instead of what they do on the playing field. But if you do, you shouldn't jump off your guy's bandwagon so easily. I was just really wanting to know where all the so-called "Hensonites" have all gone? (Maybe they're hanging out with fans of Mili-Vanili???)

    Not wierd, just stupid. I just feel like I wasted the time reading it. I can never get it back. Strange that everyone is so worried about our 3rd string QB. Give it a rest already.

    Guess I should have known you were trying to instigate. Beyond publicly avowing my continued support of Henson (the horror!!), let me make the following observations:

    1. As others have suggested, the final chapter on Henson is far from being written.

    2. Is it just me, or is it generally the case that the guys that hitched their wagons to Romo from the beginning (with a few notable exceptions) are among the most likely around here to fit the general profile of a troll? Guess that's not surprising, since the cult of Romo was, from the beginning, less about the man himself than about a backlash to the ardent support Henson was getting.

    3. I wish Romo well. In an ideal world he will continue to do well and his competition with Henson will replay itself somewhere down the line with more at stake: specifically, the starting job.

    I'M Henson!!!!!!! But it is not over Henson will get whole second half in Jag game. Some people just don't listen when Parcells speaks. Most people just hear what they want regardless of what he says......

    Doomsday101, believe me - I pull for all of our guys too! Have been for almost 40 YEARS! I LOVE THE COWBOYS!

    I don't hate Henson, but I do like to poke fun at him, because he hasn't lived up to the hype. While Henson supporters NURTURE him, telling him how much talent and potential he has, yadda, yadda, yadda, he hasn't shown me much!

    Therefore the ribbing I give Henson is to let him know that I expect big things from him AND he can shut me up with his performance on the field. I think Tuna feels the same way, that's why there is that "feeling" that Tuna doesn't like him.

    Tuna DOES like Henson, he is just VERY DISAPPOINTED in him, like many of us who criticize Henson are.
