My take on Drew Henson. Why the hell not, right?

    Hi Banned. I didn't mean to come off sounding as if I don't have respect for you and your posts. Actually, that's why I asked you to chime in because I don't totally disagree with everything you are saying in this particular thread.

    Generally speaking. In all honesty, I've got nothing against anyone on this board. Not even you Blind.

    But if I did, I wouldn't give them the time of day. Typically, I don't respond much to Fletch. His avatar is too big for my taste ... :)

    My point was that if you don't likes someone's posts, don't respond. I know these adult concepts are hard for you to understand, but I suspect most know what I'm trying to get at.

    And I'll ask you again ... Do you have anything to say about football ...

    Oh nevermind ... that's a stupid question.

    You're too busy with the winkies and what not ...

    Carry on.

    You're alright in my book, Fuzzy.

    I think you were able to say what Rack was unable to. I don't agree about his mechanics. They look baseball-like to me. But I get what you're saying about 7-7 drills etc.

    (must be an Austin thing)

    Rack, good point. I think Henson is a little lost now for some of the reasons you mentioned. There may be others. I hope he can develop like the coaches would like. Hopefully he'll get it between now and then.

    What a surprise. Another QB thread. :eek:

    My take on Henson.

    A QB with alota talent. Athletic big and very strong. Mobile a rocket arm and is very smart. That is all good but he aint got the mental part of the game yet. He is a hard worker that is for sure.

    He has the talent to be a top QB in the NFL but he aint ready to start yet. Maybe in 1 or 2 years he will but not now.

    I agree Rack. If and when Henson gets used to the "speed of the game", watch out. It will just click.

    I agree with you. Tom Brady also had alota good things to say about Henson and him being a good player in the NFL.

    Once he gets things and also after he had time to rest from those 5000+ throws he will be a very good QB and will learn very fast. THere have been a few times in the preseason games where he looked like things were clicking. But then other times he looked awful.

    I like how Romo has come along but when things come together for Henson then Henson will be the man here.

    Rack - nice analogy

    He's rusty and struggling with the speed of the game. I think behind the Confident front he shows. I s a very insecure, shattered person who lacks confidence. Nothing but a lot of failure on his resume. Will it start clicking year #3? We shall see!

    He is arguing with 5 or 6 different people at the same time. He completely hijacked what should of been a well thought out discussion about Henson and added nothing to the argument worth reading. I can't believe I just read through 8 pages of this crap. I really liked the original topic but 90% of the responses were Banned's bantering with other members. I think I will join you in ignoring Banned and thank you for trying to start a very worthwhile discussion. :)

    Thank you. It's really that easy. Ignore me. And anyone else who has a problem with it.

    If I'm not mistaken, the ignore option is right under "User CP".

    Have a nice day fellas .... and jock sniffers alike. :)

    Oddly enough, Jerry put it best with respect to Henson:

    “It is not a disappointment. It’s more of a reality,” Jones said. “Quarterbacks are developed and it can take some time.”

    If we do keep him, he better be in europe. The kid has the skills, he needs the experience.

    Gee, I seemed to be saying Henson needed all the reps he could get, what was I wrong about again?

    FYI, Nors you catch this Q&A from today's PC?

    Does the 3-4 scheme produce more turnovers?

    No. I wouldn’t say that. If you got good players in the scheme, that’s what produces turnovers.

    Now who was saying those words for 18 months, me or you?:lmao2:

    Rack, I want to begin by commending you on a well thought out interesting topic. Had I not been at work and had the thread not been hijacked I think this very well might have been one of the more enjoyable football discussions about QBs we've had in a long time.

    There are a couple of people on this forum who simply cannot stand anything positive being said about Drew Henson, even if it makes sense. What you've said here makes good sense.

    I personally want to apologize to you for the turn this thread took from this original post. I feel some of it is most definitely my fault. I look back to my report from the AZ game and ever since that thread it has been very ugly in here. My apologies. I never meant for it to go this far.

    Great post. I really enjoyed it because it is about football as opposed to petty jealousy.

    Funny - he did change the scheme.....

    Coaching, Players, Scheming/gameplanning. This isn't like pickup basketball game.....

    It all matters! Take Roy - we are now putting him in a better scheme to use his talents. We have better talent on D. Agree there. Wait till Fergi and Spears kick in. Burnett and Ware edge LB's. Canty and Rat in rotation!

    Life is good!
