There is a lot of reasons to be frustrated today... and I'm not going to go into them b/c there are plenty of other threads discussing those topics. However, one of the brightest spots of yesterday IMO was that of Henne's 19 career starts, I believe yesterday was the best game of Henne's career. Statistically, hes had better. Yesterday he finished with 257 yards on 64% with 1 TD and 0 INTs and a 94.3 QB rating. Good, not amazing. However, it goes far deeper than what the stat sheet read. On Sunday, Henne took HUGE steps toward being our franchise QB IMO. There were 2 aspects of his game in particular that showed tremendous growth in his game. The first was how he went through his progressions. In the past, he has had a tendency to lock on to WRs, or if he went through his progressions, he would go through them too fast and not give the routes time to develop, and end up checking down too early. However, in this game Henne methodically went through his progressions all game long. He didnt rush his way through his progressions, and he didnt lock on to WRs. He took his time and gave a route a chance to develop before moving on to the next progression. That is the kind of growth we need from him to become our QB of the next decade. And the 2nd thing, and most impressive thing that I had never seen from Henne before was the pump fake. In fact, it has been one of my biggest criticisms of Henne. He never would use it, which would allow defenses to tee off on him as soon as they saw him begin a throwing motion. However, yesterday it came out of no where... and all of a sudden he was using the pump fake all over the place. More importantly... used it to move defenders and set up WRs and throwing lanes. I cant stress enough how big that is. That is BIG TIME stuff from a young QB. Thats really showing that hes getting comfortable in the mental aspect of the game. Seeing the coverage, recognizing it, and knowing how to manipulate that coverage in order to beat it. That is veteran QB stuff... from a 25 year old QB. And lets not forget WHO he was facing when showing this growth in his game. He was going against the best defense in football. I loved what I saw from Henne this week... and if we continue to see the growth in his game like we saw Sunday... we will be set at the position for a long time.
