    “I don’t worry about how much (Henne) can hurt the other team. I worry about how much he can hurt my team,” said Henning

    Memo to Parcell's : get rid of this clown--- We can have a special season but this fool will ruin it !!

    Reverse psychology maybe? Or was this quote taken out of context?

    I think it's the latter. Here is the full quote:

    “I don’t worry about how much (Henne) can hurt the other team. I worry about how much he can hurt my team,” said Henning. “We can’t win if we’re throwing interceptions, turning the ball over, fumbling and doing all those, what Tony calls, ‘minus plays.’ We avoid them, we practice avoiding them, but we’re always trying to hit the big play.”

    What he's saying is that if a QB hurts his own team that's a bigger factor. I agree. His wording wasn't the best, but I don't think it was a knock on Henne. I think it was meant to convey his philosophy. I'd rather have a QB throw 1 TD with no INT's than a QB that throws 3 TD's with 3 INT's. The former stat will more than likely win the game.

    It was clearly a knock on Henne. How can it be taken any other way? ****-can his a** now, and let David Lee take over OC duties.

    I disagree with a lot of Henning's play calling. However, he gets to see how this offense works more than anyone here so I gotta trust him more than i do my own instincts. I truly believe he is trying to groom Henne for the long run. Making him play conservatively will build his confidence and help us win games. If he turns Henne loose and Henne fails, not because of lack of anything other than experience, Henne may be ruined. Look at the QB's who succeed in this league. Other than a very select few (Marino, P. Manning) most get a few years under their belt before they are thrown to the wolves. Most that are tossed into the fire too soon fail.

    what a ***** thing for an OC to say. it's not a knock on henne - its just a testament to how he likes to do things. he doesn't like to win game - he likes to not lose them. worst. philosophy. ever.

    i wonder if nolan knew how much was going to be put on his plate when he took this gig.

    'oh and by the way mike. you're responsible for basically everything now. we just kind of show up and piggyback off your success. good luck!'

    Which is fine being discussed behind closed doors. Why quote yourself in the media that you're actually "worried" your QB will hurt you. Talk about a gut shot on the young guy.

    I agree 100%. I'm also betting that Henning has since talked to Henne since this came out. Hopefully it'll fire him up and not cause him to regress or play angry. Anger causes mistakes while motivation creates wins. Hopefully he's motivated to prove that he can be trusted.

    He doesn't seem to have much confidence in Henne, and I don't really either. Seeing Henne drop back still makes me kind of nervous, the guys a statue in the pocket.

    I hate Henning, but let's use the complete quote:

    "I don't worry about how much (Henne) can hurt the other team. I worry about how much he can hurt my team," Henning said. "We can't win if we're throwing interceptions, turn the ball over, fumbling and doing all those, what Tony calls, 'minus plays.' We avoid them, we practice avoiding them, but we're always trying to hit the big play.""

    The philosophy comes from Tony.

    I mean jesus, the guy has just gone out there and won two road games to start the season. What is wrong with "pumping his tires" to whoever is asking him the questions. (Not to beat a dead horse or anything)

    how was that taken out of context. Of course it was a knock on henne, in its own right. He doesnt want him throwing picks and hurting the team, therefore he keeps him on a leash.. That being said, Henning may be hurting the team by NOT letting henne throw. Henning is a douchebag.. god i cant stand this clown

    This was another of the items that pissed me off about the article. When was the last time we threw an intermediate crossing route or a skinny post 15 yards down the field. They just aren't part of his strategy. I think you leave alot of plays on the field and it really helps the defense out when you basically limit yourself to two philosophies on each play.

    Dan Henning has more quotes than the bible. Evaluate his offenses on the field, not via soundbyte.

    As long as we are winning I dont care, if his leash on Henne becomes an issue that is causing us games then I have an issue.

    Always? That's a mighty big word there Mr. Henning. Does always mean taking 2 or 3 deep shots a game (out of the 55-70 plays we run on offense)? Does always mean the run-to-pass ratio should be 3-to-1? Does always mean sending all of your receivers out on 5 yard patterns and hoping whoever catches the ball can break a tackle and gain 20 yards the majority of you pass plays?

    Perhaps you, Mr. Henning, need to look up the definition of always...JMO.

    The only thing I can say is that I HOPE all this is posturing for the Jets game making them think we'll play conservative Sunday night right before they let Henne play like he did last year in the Monday Nighter against the Jets. But this time with a more talented offense.

    I don't sense a serious problem with Henning's play calling. I think there's a lack of execution going on. But overall Dan Henning, Chad Henne and the whole offense are swimming in different waters compared with a year ago and they've just got to get better at it. Teams are playing them different now that Marshall is on the team. A year ago with teams mostly playing single-high against you, you could afford oversimplification and conservatism versus the shell, cuz you'll still get opportunities to be aggressive when they go back to single-high. Now they're not going to single-high at all anymore and if you don't start learning to find and execute ways to be aggressive in passing against the shell, your offense looks pretty bland.

    SOME of that has been play calling I think, but a lot of it has been execution. They called some pretty nice shell-buster pass plays against the Bills. The problem was they only executed well on one of them, the seam strike to Fasano over the middle. There was a nice flag route that Marshall ran that Henne overthrew. Good call, bad execution.

    What happened to those intermediate routes. That's where if a receiver happens to break a tackle, cause he's normally just covered by a corner, it turns into a big gain. I miss those plays.

    He'll get 100 receptions he will only get 800 yards though because of the 5 yard ins.

    God, I so want to see David Lee run an offense. The personnel we have are perfect for a spread offense that's explosive in the passing game and hard-nosed in the running game, but Henning won't do it. Hell, when you come to it, our biggest innovation (the Wildcat) was David Lee's brainchild.

    Henning takes too much heat. If we could execute on offense nobody would care about playcalling. The fact is our offense has been inept so far. Sure Henning could try to throw more, but you could also say Henne should have done more with the opportunities he has had.

    Guys, if we fall behind 14 and we get vanilla playcalling, then complain. But if we're winning, chill out!...too many impossible to satisfy fans. In the NFL there is no BCS, no coaches poll, nothing but W's and L's. All we can go on precedence, an I've mentioned it before, in each of the games last season where we fell behind by two or more scores in the first half, we threw more than 45 passes and over 300 yds. We have imposed our will two of two times this season and gotten the all-important W's. Would you rather spend the season complaining about how we win, or rejoicing that our franchise is looking up finally? To each his own, but I choose the latter. GO PHINS

    I read that quote and I think. " hello pot meet kettle"!

    I am more worried about Dan Henning and his bone head play calls, hurting this team! I really fear a limp play not to lose offense this week. They way you best Fatso is take advantage of his aggression on defense.
