Actually, I wouldn't be surprised if they put in Romo if (when) Vinny gets hurt. A buddy of mine that is insane (i.e. a Cowboys fan) actually said he'd prefer that....I haven't really paid much attention to them. But even then, Henson will still probably get in there sometime this season.

well, if they finally got that leaky QB/RB situation fixed this offseason, they have a shot... their secondary seems down right now though

However, if you take a look, Henson is playing well in the exhibition games. In the first two games he is 15-26 for 147 yards. That's about 10 yards per completion which is good and about 6 yards per attempt which is about average.

Before someone screeches that he has only played against the opposition's scrubs, that is true. However, when Ramsey played against an opponent's scrubs, he didn't do anywhere near this well and no one here scorched his ass.

Also, remember that Henson kept Tom Brady on the bench at Michigan and Brady says that Henson is a helluva player. I think we need to keep our eye on Mr, Henson down there in Cowgirlville.
In an article a few years back, Joel Buchsbaum of PFW polled 10 GM's and asked them who they would prefer to take..Henson or Vick

7 said Henson


Preseason Game 1 for Henson

CP/AT YDS TD INT
D. Henson 8/11 94 0 1

Preseason game 2:

D. Henson 7/9 53 0 0

Thats 15-20...75% completion percentage, 7.35 per attempt

The INT @ Houston was a classic rookie mistake..Henson eyeballed his intended target and the Houston defender read Hensons eyes right to the ball

Although Henson didnt throw for a TD against the Raiders, Henson lead the Cowboys to their 1st preseason TD and completed 2 passes on the drive..Julius Jones did the rest on the ground

Henson was amazing in college football. cade McNown was probably the best ever college qb, thats ive seen atleast. He used to throw for 500 yards a game without blinking, then did nothing in the NFL.

Im posing the argument in this thread that what you did in college means nothing, at the same time in another thread im talking about how dorsey will be great. This is a good example of a qb being physically gifted, versus just having a lot of mental toughness and knowing how to make plays.

The Lord was very, very kind to Drew Henson...his 42 on the Wonderlich wasnt too shabby either.

The only bad thing Henson did was delay his NFL career by 3 years while whiffing on curveballs

A quick update for you guys on Cowboy happenings today

I havent checked the threads but FYI, we signed Chad Eaton today...

As I have mentioned previously we have been getting gashed on the interior run...,our young DT's (outside Glover) have been underwhelming so far in camp

Jean-Jacques Taylor mentioned today he heard our PK Billy Cundiff was going to be a Jaguar by the end of the day...We signed former Giants PK Matt Bryant 2 week ago and Bryant has been $$ ever since he was signed

Parcells and JJ are mulling trade offers for one of our RB's...no mention of who

Jones and Anderson are locks...George, Rashard Lee and Aveion Cason are thought to be the guys...IMHO, most likely George or Cason

Yesterday was the best day of passing weve had since Ive been the coach of the Cowboys. For everyone, and they were throwing into the wind. We cut a period short because it was so good.
