Yeah, nice grab by Dallas. They still need some offensive pieces for the puzzle (like a running back). I bet Henson gets a few games to start this year. Parcells loves that Simms-like accuracy that Henson could give him. The receiving corps can be very deadly when used well also. I'm not a fan of Dallas at all, but I'm sure this gives the fans some hope for their offense in the near future.

I'm not sold on Drew Henson just yet, but I trust Bill Parcells knows how to judge talent - I'll trust him up until the point he announces Troy Hambrick as 2004's starting RB for the Cowboys - if a catastrophic event such as that happens to occur, consider me aboard the Parcells hate train.

Parcells 3 year plan

Ditto to Canacuna. If Hambone is his Running Back for the year it doesn't matter who is taking the snaps cause no team is going to respect the run with that tub of lard carrying the ball.

This could be great or a total bust. Henson has great talent and excelled in a skills exhibit earlier this year. The doubt that I have is in his dedication and toughness. He did give up football to play the game he loves, then quits that once he doesn't get immediate results. If he can't dedicate himself to the game he loves, how will he do with the game he doesn't love? Also it seems to me that he left football, in part, because he didn't like the physicality of it. Translation: he didn't like to get hit.
He may lack the mental and physical toughness to excel at football. I hope I'm wrong because he does have great skills, but then again since he's playing for the Cowboys he couldn't suck bad enough. :-#

I can't figure what the big deal is about Henson. He hasn't played ball in like 3 or 4 years and I vaguely remember him being the QB at Michigan. What's all the hubub about some guy who had an ok college career, hasn't played football in awhile, and has never really proven anything?

Average college career? He was the pre-season favorite for the heisman trophy the year he declared for the yankees, and was projected as the top QB and probably a top 3 pick overall.

I have the same concerns, I was actually directing that more at Azrael's comments of "I vaguely remember him being a QB at Michigan" and having "an average college career."

How can you say that? He played one year where he threw for 2,100 yards and 18 TDs, big deal. I guess the talent pool was down that year, as evidenced by Crouch winning the Heisman.
