I know everybody outside of the Michigan fan base rips on Chad Henne but he really is one of the best backup quarterbacks in the league. I kind of wanted him to go to an NFL team with a decent OL line though, just so he could have a Drew Brees-like comeback story.

This is great.

My brother in law bet me before the 2011 season that Henne would be out of the NFL in 5 years, and I took it. If he completes this contract, I win the bet.

That'll put him what at 9 years in the NFL with a few multi million dollar contracts? I say that is excelent. Kudos, Chad. 

BTW I was impressed seeing he threw for 3000+ last year. Good for him.

numbers rise significantly? Don't know much about that team or whether Clowney can be assumed to contribute big right away, but it sounds like Henne really settled to business down during the second half of last year. Would love to see him show up big and prove the nay-sayers wrong.

It's not a knock at all when I say he could have a long career as a very servicable back-up.  He can be brought in when the starter gets injured without the team missing much.  Or, he's good enought for the team he's with to draft/start a first round hot shot QB with the confidence they can bring in Henne at any point should the rookie fail.

And - don't miss this - he is good enought to start.  As stated above, I'm not knocking him.

Jacksonville is painful to watch but I tried to find them every weekend to watch Henne.

Would love for them to draft another position or trade down and plug a few of the many holes they have.
