I am only motivated by people who have no opinion about me.
the just released schedules were a flat-out statement that the B10 doesn't believe SOS will matter in playoff selection
but I thought that draft was supposed to be incredibly loaded?
If you're gonna go please be in the first round.

I mean, nothing that we don't really know but it's interesting that Henne came out and said this.
I mean, Henne does have that W against Florida in his record books.
Tebow honestly didn't impress me much that game. Percy Harvin was godlike for the most of the game and I felt like he was carrying the offense, not Tebow. Tebow's "scrambling" seemed to be along the lines of "run straight ahead". That might work on smaller D lines, but on a Lloyd Era D-Line stopping a 200+ lb guy wasn't a challenge. It was hilarious though watching our tackles come off their blocks and crush Tebow when he tried to run up the middle.
UM's defensive game plan against Florida (specifically focused on pressuring Tebow) was textbook.
Tebow still cries and falls into a little ball when someone yells "Oh oh.... here comes Jamar Adams!!!!!"

+1 chad, that was 100% pure Columbian awesome.

Wait, that came out wrong.

Do Something. If it works, do more of it. If it doesn't, do something else.
I think in certain "dink and dunk" schemes, Tebow would do okay in the NFL. Think of Fran Tarkenton back in the day. He was a scrambler who generally killed you by throwing short passes. Perhaps Tebow could emulate a style like that.
a direct quotation of many of the witless comments following the article linked above. Some places, it's better to give the comments a miss.
... Just not in the QB position..

Tebow has the potential to make a lot of people feel like big douchebags. He is a great QB who could get a starting job somewhere. He is a great leader and is showing the will to do the work. If lazy bums like Jamarcus Russel can start Tehow can to if he works at it hard enough.

Jamarcus Russell went to the raiders and can't keep a starting job there. He'll be out of the league this year or next.
At best Tebow will be Brady Quinn who had endorsements as a BACKUP (EAS). Actually, Quinn had better Qb skills coming into the league than Tebow.
He showed up to camp "in better shape" and "only one day late" this year! It's his year... to get beaten out by Bruce Gradkowski from the get go.
"He showed up to camp "in better shape" and "only one day late" this year! It's his year"
Made me laugh on an otherwise shitty morning at work.
He would know, he quarterbacked the only team to beat Tebow's Gators out of conference.
It's all John Navarre's fault.
Henne owns Tebow. That remains one of my favorite games. God it felt good beating them.
Christ in me arise and dispel all the darkness.
Particularly because of Meyer's over-the-top politicking in '06, but also a little because of the Heismann hoopla over Tebow. And not to mention we needed a "W" at that point.
Tebow will end up being Henne's QB coach, hope Chad's not digging his own grave.
While Tebow might have some shot at becoming a QB in the NFL, he absolutely has no business being a QB coach.
WTF, really? FAIL
not just "douchey" MGoBlog user, but now TRUSTED MGoBlog user
Wow, tough crowd, was meant to be sarcastic, being in the south, we get Tebow crammed down our throats. I pretty much gag and want to throw up every time i hear his name.
If that's the case, I obviously missed the sarcasm. I humbly Epologize.
Epologize accepted, lets get ready to tailgate the night game just announced.
I read a lot of the comments to regarding that statement and they are bewildering. The number of people that slam Henne for having (and expressing) an opinion, while sharing their own irony in epic proportions.
I know lots of people have difficulty looking at players for their favorite teams objectively, but it is insane to me how anyone think Tebow is going to be a successful NFL QB.

Easy now Chad. Can you come back to Michigan and teach Tate Forcier how to throw, read defenses, and win games?

Since when is Chad Henne one to speak about being a NFL QB. He plays in a Wildcat offense.
It's like staring into the sun I know I shouldn't look but it's so hard to look away!
"A house divided against itself cannot stand"
With laughably uneducated commentary like that, staring at the sun almost seems like a nice alternative.
like staring into the sun I know I shouldn't look but it's so hard to look away!
Outstanding metaphor; bravo.
To be honest, I don't see why that's so unexpected. If Terrelle Pryor had said something similar about Denard not being a good college QB, I'm sure a lot of MGoBloggers would do the same thing.
In either case, the truth hurts...
I hate Tebow more than most but I think a fellow athlete saying stuff like that in the press is a dick move.
Also, I hope it doesn't reverse-jinx Tebow. Lots of people said Brady was no NFL quarterback. If Tebow ends up having a huge career, I'm blaming Henne.
asked a loaded question. Chad gave his opinion. Where is the rest of the discussion. How did they lead into this comment? What was said afterwords? Forget it. All we get is this one excerpt of the interview and the media's persuasive interpretation.
"OMG! Chad Henne predicts Tebow will fail in the NFL!"
All right Lemmings. Bring the heat.
if I could
I want to watch.
that's what MGoJen said
life is like a box of chocolates... and you got the Whizzo Quality Assortment
the release everybody is talking about.
While Henne is perfectly entitled to his opinion, I think he probably could have answered the question more diplomatically. Listen, I think Henne will be a good pro, but he really isn't in a position to pass judgment on the abilities of others to make it in the pros considering he's only been an off-and-on starter for about a year. I agree with him that Tebow probably won't make it as a QB in the pros, but say something like "He will have a tough time with it, just like I did," or something to that effect, instead of making a declaration that Tebow won't make it.
And that's okay, but for him to voice his opinion, like you just did, you bring up his history as a starter in the NFL? That doesn't make much sense. Look, as you just stated, Tebow is not an NFL QB, period. Chad was just saying what everyone is thinking, and I like that.
That's a pretty shitty thing for Henne to say. If that's how he feels, he should be smart enough to evade the question and not answer it, or just give some non answer like "Tim had a great college career, and I'm interested to see how it carries over into the pros."
When you start publicly bad-mouthing people that didn't do anything to justify it, it makes you look petty.
