Ok, so we're now 0-2 with an absolute gauntlet of an upcoming schedule. I predict we lose a close one to the Chargers, Beat the Bills, and lose another close one to the Jets. At that point we're 1-4, with playoff hopes all but over. Chad Pennington is in the last year of his 2 year deal, and who really knows if we're going to re-sign him or not. I'd say it's safe to say Chad P is what he is. A great game manager who doesn't make mistakes and will always make a young team better. But can he bring this team to the next level? I don't think so, and I think that's why he won't be re-signed. Which brings me to my next point. If it does come to 1-4 or 2-5, do we have to look to see what we have in Henne? I say absolutely for a few reasons 1) The Chad P. issue and the last year of his contract as stated above 2) We have to see what Henne has. Just in case he flops consistently, we have to look for a replacement in the offseason 3) He'd be walking into the perfect situation for a young QB. A Run-first team just like Big Ben, Matt Ryan, and Joe Flacco all had with their respective teams. 4) We have a decent to above average run-blocking OL where there would be less pressure on the QB 5) Our OL provides pretty decent pass protection for a QB. 6) We don't have that superstar WR who's going to get in the QB's head and put extra pressure on him 7) We run a very conservative offense, perfect for a young QB I'd say it's the ideal situation for Henne if this team falls to 1-4 or 2-5. You'd have over half a season to see what he's got. EDIT: I forgot one of my main reasons. Against the Colts, we had 3rd and 6 and 3rd and 7 on back to back drives where we ran the ball and settled for 47 yard field goals. It appeared as if Henning didn't really trust Chad Pennington there, which is ridiculous because if anyone's not gonna screw up in that situation it's Pennington. My point: If you're not gonna trust Pennington, you might as well just put Henne in to hand the ball off and run the ULTRA-CONSERVATIVE offense.
