Drew Stanton, who you said was tearing it up for some reason... is a 2nd round pick.
Brett Favre, Randall Cunningham and Boomer Esiason were also 2nd round picks.
When did I say Stanton was tearing it up?
And yes, there are exceptions. But 9 out of 10 don't pan out.
9 out of 10 players don't pan out period.
You said it the other day in an argument with D4me.
I can guarantee you I never said that. I think you are thinking of when I said Stafford was tearing it up when he's healthy....Not Stanton. Lol.
And what's your point about 9 out of 10 don't pan out period? How is that relevant to my point? And actually, wouldn't it strengthen it, saying that 2nd round picks have the same low success rate of the overall pool, (mostly made up of late round picks and un-drafted players?).
Almost no 2nd round QB's have panned out over the past decade, and I would assume that is true throughout history. There is a reason they are in the 2nd round.
You can pull out all the exceptions (which are like, what, a handful?), and compare their numbers to Henne's numbers early on, but from what I've seen the guy, (whether it's the coaching staff's fault or whatever), doesn't have IT. Way too bland, scripted, tentative, etc. Needs to just go out there and play football.
When teams run man coverage he does well (like in Oakland). Wow, shocker. If you can't move your offense down the field when Bess and Hartline are running wide open you shouldn't be in the NFL. He's done the minimum with few exceptions, leaves way too many plays out there and doesn't make any of his own.
