Re: Henson Impressive
It's not so much that a rookie QB did well against our 2nd and 3rd string defense. It's that a rookie QB who's been out of football for 3 years was able to do well against our 2nd and 3rd string defense. Being a QB in the NFL is supposed to be one of the toughest positions in the leauge to adjust to coming from college. Imagine making that adjustment after trying to hit a curve ball, and playing 3rd base in the minor leagues. That is quite unusual from a rookie QB. No one is by any means bashing Carr, or implying we should've kept Henson. We're simply stating that he, along with Jones, was a bright spot for the Cowboys. He seemed comfortable in the pocket when most thought he'd be uneasy, and he also did a decent job of engineering a drive. Albeit he didn't score any points, but neither did anyone else on the Dallas sidelines. He looked all the better in comparison to Testaverde and Romo mostly because they played poorly, as did the entire team. I believe most people would say the same about Ben Rothelisburger if he does well against our 2nd or 3rd string defense. Being as it is the preseason, I think most people are quick to praise good play on either side, and why not. There's no harm in it.
