Default Henson Impressive

I thought that Drew Henson looked good last night for not playing a game in too long. He made a couple of passes that looked as if he still has some ability. He's still a long way from being a solid NFL quarterback, but I think Dallas has a potentially good QB. I wouldn't be surprised if he gets a good amount of playing time this season just to help him learn a little bit. I still think the Texans got the better end of the deal and the way Carr looked last night...they made the smarter deal .

I agree. I must admit I was looking forward to seeing him play, and I thought he did well. He looked poised and confident in the pocket. He made a few bad throws, but that can be remedied with practice and a few more game snaps. Compared to Romo, he looked like John Elway lol.

I think Henson looked pretty good against our second team. The C'boys problem is how to develop him. If they want to pretend that last years results (with Quincy, Galloway and Hambrick) mean anything, then they have to try and win as many games as possible this year (with Testiverte, Keyshawn and George) and try to at least win one playoff game, to show improvement. I don't think many people think the best way to do that is with a rookie, three years from his last college game. On the other hand, if they don't commit to developing Henson until next year, then they are futher delaying the time when they will be truly competitve again. 3 years of 5-11, followed by a year of Quincy, Galloway and Hambrick. Do they have to wait another year before they try to develop their Superbowl potential team?

Hiring Parcells did distract the media from talking about all of the Cowboys misadventures in their 5-11 years, but is it the solution? Parcells is a good coach, but can he carry a team to the Superbowl by himself? What is the trend?

Giants under Parcells - 2 Superbowls;
Patiots under Parcells - lost Superbowl (Pats win 2 with another coach afterwards)
Jets under Parcells - didn't get to Superbowl.

Is there a trend here?

henson reminded me of a young aikman...he actually with a helment on looks like the previous all star for the cowboys...although it is clearly too early to say henson is the next aikman i think it's fair to say that henson has a promising career

i guess you guys all missed how low he threw the ball...all of his receivers had to make an extra effort to catch the ball...the reason he looked so good is cuz testaverde and romo looked so bad.

Henson played remarkably well for someone who has been completely out of
football for what - 3 years or so ? He has a strong arm - you either got it or
you don't, catn't teach it. I wish we could have got more for him, never the
less, conveting a 6th round pick into a 3rd rounder is a real good return on investment. Time will tell, but I think theres gonna be some teams who regret they didn't step up and make more of an effort to get him under contract.

I thought Henson looked impressive but, against backups. I don't think that it would be the same situation versus the starters. But, he did show the tools to become a good qb.

I kinda wonder why some of ya are so "gaga" over Henson. Is it because he was a former draft choice of ours? If you are a cowboys' fan ,that is understandable. Personally, I could care less. My support fully goes to Carr; he looked very sharp last night and he was going against Dallas' #1 (rated) defense. The offense scored 10 points; it could had been 14 pts. if the playcalling was better. As for Henson...he did well against our 2nd and 3rd string defense. Considering we didn't generate any pass rush against him.he showed poise in finding his receivers. I was going to put this comment in a separate post...I was ( po'ed) at Sportscenter's report of our game after the game last night. All they showed was Parcell's griping aboht his team's poor showing and ranking Henson as one of top 3 QB's last night. As far as I can tell, Henson had good stats ; but did he score any points? No!!!
