Should be read as "He MUST stop overthrowing WIDE OPEN RECEIVERS!!!
I rally dug Henne's poise last season to play well when the odds were against him. But he has 2 major problems:
1) The touch pass. Hopefully he can learn to take something off of the ball. Perhaps it's like Big Ben stated last year when he said that the touch pass is something you either have or don't, it's not something that can be coached. Hopefully it isn't like that. We may have had even more chances to win more games last season if Henne could have just thrown the ball with a little less mustard.
2) More than an acceptable number of times he successfully missed a wide open receiver deep down the field. Ginn, Camarillo, Hartline all were missed badly when wide open behind the last line of defense and would have been a stroll in score. He needs to not do that.
