Stirring the pot, eh?
CORRECTION: How can I stir when the pot is already BOILING?
Heck! We (Jerry) spent $7 million on Henson and WHAT HAVE WE RECEIVED IN RETURN!
Do you pay your mechanic based on his POTENTIAL or when the WORK GETS DONE? If he doesn't fix it right the second, third or fourth time, how many chances you give him? I expect you'd rather have Henson working on your car than Romo.
Or as the drunken hillbilly newlywed once said, "I wasn't gonna wait for her to grow breasts". Henson's have barely sprouted!
DISCLAIMER: 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. 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.
Sorry, but you're analogy doesn't apply to football business: see first round draftpicks and the pay that they receive.
You can dance around the fire all you want, but if you dance around it long enough, YOU WILL GET BURNED!
Football is like any business...you must perform or you get booted.
First round draftpicks ARE EXPECTED TO PERFORM...STELLARLY, I might add.
R u implying that Henson WAS a first rounder! OMG!
Are you related to a Lemming btw?
I'm Drew Henson. You know a lot of people confuse the idea that Henson will be a better long term QB solution with not liking Romo. I really like Romo. I root for him every time he takes a snap. I just don't believe he will be the long term answer to our QB situation. I think he will be a fine backup QB this year but there is also a good chance that he and Henson switch out as the backup QB just like last year. I personally feel Henson has a chance to be the long term answer at QB while Romo will be a career backup and spot starter. That being said Go Romo!!! Go Henson!!! I'm rooting for both of them!!!
Yeah, well, whatever. Bottom line, you don't write the checks. Neither do I. When all is said and done, Jerruh is the guy who will decide when the ink runs out. You may not like Henson, you may love him, it doesn't matter. The facts are these. JJ has already said that Henson will be given the time. That's it.
I'm sure I don't need to tell you this with your 40 years of experience and all but here goes. QBs take time. 3 to 4 years is an average of what it takes to develope a QB. I'm sorry you don't feel as if you have gotten a return on your investment with Henson. I didn't realize you had a great deal invested to begin with but no matter. While I think your a bit short sided on this, it's not a crime. Many are. I will just say that, as a Cowboy fan, I have suffered through many a prospect with less upside and more wart material then Henson. It is what it is. You must learn to deal with it.
I'd tell you what I'd like to see YOU do, "just for the fun of it".
But it's a family board.
This silly baiting, this deliberate attempt to create divisions, this juvenile refusal to allow any real or imagined 'wounds' to heal....I just don't get it.
Sorry, but the 'frustrations' you are dying to see 'relieved' will not be forthcoming. You'll just have to find your amusement elsewhere - like maybe there's a still a summer fly or two left to pull the wings off.
Neither Henson nor Romo is going anywhere, and that should be a cause for rejoicing..not lamely written taunting at what you incorrectly perceive as the "Hensonites" expense.
As always, well put LTN.
Holy Cow! I'm not exactly sure how to react to this thread. On one hand, we clearly have a case of a veiled agenda. But it's really is one unique way of throwing that our there. Long-winded, and circuitous, but pretty original at the same time.
So here goes, even though we've been through this, I'd say it's deserving of a reply.
I know I am not alone in this, I still belive that Drew Henson has a good chance to become our QB of the future. Now this does not mean that I am unhappy about Romo's improvement. I really don't get why this is a problem for people to understand. I suppose that some who 'support' Romo, do so for other reasons than just hoping for the betterment of the team. I guess those people can't see that folks who like Henson are not as narrow-minded.
Maybe I'm missing something, but I have never, even months back, seem a post or thread that boast about Henson by putting down Romo. With avid Romo supporters it;s seems that the opposite is true.
Let me try to put in another way. There are posters here who's top goal seems to be "being correct" in making predictions, as if that somehow proves some vast football acumen. Those who have this goal then must invent an adversary so that they then have someone to thump thier chest to.
In this odd little battle over our back-up QBs it's seems as though much of the "Hensonite" crowd has been invented by the "Romo above all" group.
On the one side, I have read many posts proclaiming "see I told you so's, and wait you'll see" and the like from the Romo side, whereas the "enson side" has basically said from the beginning "I'm excited about his tools and hope he develops." I don't see this as an even debate.
To sum up before I get all too long winded. I'm glad Romo has improved, any improvement to the team is to be welcomed. I like Romo, and even don't understand why I shouldn't. Does my belief that Henson has great tools and hopefully only needs more time to put it together preclude my being happy that we've got what looks like a good solid QB in Romo?
Some people insist that's what it has to be.
Hey, Henson can be a good one. If he's not, that's bad for all Cowboy fans. Some feel the need to be right about Henson's shortcomings is more important than success for the team. Fine.
Me? I'd rather Henson do well. If he can't, we move on. If in the future that's the case, it's totally irrelevant to me whether I WAS RIGHT, or I WAS WRONG. I'm interested in the team succeeding.
I don't either, but that's what trolls do...
I just wonder if the hypenated version of his name is because the original one was (wisely) tossed by the mods...
The most amusing part of all this drivel is, it's not as though the #2 and #3 quarterback positions are static when it comes to Parcells.
Last year Romo started out as the backup. There was an article by Peter King that suggested he had the best preseason of any Cowboy. He ended up 3rd string.
That doesn't mean he'll end up 3rd string this year, but being named the backup doesn't mean he's our future starter any more than Henson replacing him as #2 last year meant he's our future starter. Besides, as durable as Bledsoe is, the likelihood of him seeing significant action is almost nil.
Next year it's almost a certainty that we'll have 4 QBs in camp. Bledsoe, Romo, Henson, and either a draftee or free agent. Next year will be the year that you can read something into the QB order, because either Romo or Henson will likely be gone. Maybe both, who knows? This year it's just the lesser of the two evils, just like it was last year.
My, my, my!
It's clear the cheese has spoiled in someones tummy...ouch!
Oh, and mister lab, do your barking elsewhere.
This post was meant to be FUN and some of you Hensonites are still unwilling to cry uncle or Spartacus or Henson.
R u related to a Lemming?
So you want people to give up on Henson because you have? I'm trying to figure out what the point of this thread is?
Simple, read the first post.
So it is to slam Henson and anyone who has supported him. Gotcha. but your not trolling? yeah right!!!!
Who's fun? Are you disappointed that after years of fighting between QBs, we don't see this in the same light as you do?
Seems to me that the fun factor is your own. For us, it's just kinda boaring. Of course, that is only my opinion.
Henson has had the misfortune of having Parcells as a coach
there was nothing wrong with his throwin motion....if anything
needed fixin it was the way he squatted when he threw the ball
he is not playing as tall as he should (peyton stands tall...perfectly)
Henson doesn't need Parcells
Ware doesn,t need LT
Cowboys don't need Bledsoe
This the last year of Parcell ...he will go out a loser 7-9
I don't hate Henson, but I do like to poke fun at him, because he hasn't lived up to the hype. 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. /Quote
You don't think this thread will actually make it to Henson do you. Your message is clearly to Henson fans. That is called needling. If this were a real game, you would be flagged 15 yards for taunting.
The saddest thing about the Q and H wars (other than they were over a player just yesterday demoted off the QB rotation and another going for the Guiness Book of Records of Rehabs) is the ongoing acrimony they fueled.
But at least that 6th grade pissing war was over starting QBs, not back-ups.
Perhaps the post was meant to be 'FUN', but it was neither humourous nor compassionate enough to be successful. Taking into consideration your past posting history, which speaks for itself, this one indeed did qualify as 'trolling".
And 40 years of Cowboy fandom or not, this two-year bandwagoner is calling you out as a troll who has no agenda other than making sure the cheese does spoil in the tummy, and that the next set of childish boasting (like when and if DH supplants TR as backup) plummets a new depth of civility.
These minor 'victories' tend to expose folks for what they really are. For Lebreton it's a mean-spirited loser incapable of congratulating Tony for his accomplishments.
And for others it will just another excuse to toss oil on the flames because seeing a fanbase at its fellows' throats is just too 'amusing' a show to pass up.
I think I know what YOU'RE related to..and a lemming is way up from it on the evolutionary scale.
Ok mods, send me a warning or temp ban me but I for one am going on record as RESISTING this next round of incendiary trolldom than seeks only to continue the ridiculous Q-H battling.
I realize my reaction is exactly what this individual wanted as he sits anonymously behind his computer screen and baits, but the opportunity to let the trollers know they won't ruin it for us this time I'm just not passing on this time.
Tony and Drew are not the problem.
The baiters are.
