Steve Young Just Called Chad Henne a Robot

Just happened on MNF postgame. Said he was doing the right things mentally but was rushing through his reads.

I think Jaws always mentioned that Henne was robot-like or something to that effect earlier in the game.  He looks incredibly inconsistent so far this season, but hopefully that will change as he becomes more accustomed to being the starter and the players on offense.

Jaws is referring to Henne moving like a robot, not letting things comes to him naturally.  To think of it, I think that I've read scouting reports from the internet that said that Henne's movement look robotic at times because he's been trained to move like it instead of being able to do it naturally.

it was a little eerie that he said that.  my brother and i were watching the post game press conference with henne and we were talking about how henne even talks like robo-henne.  then 2 mins later young says it.  weird moment.

When reading his progressions you can basically see his body move from one receiver to the other, and it doesn't look fluid, comfortable, or natural.  I don't know if he is trying to hard to get all his mechanics right or what but he doesn't look comfortable out there.  It is also obvious (a lot because his reading of progressions is so obvious on film) that he is rushing through the progression and not giving his receivers enough time to get open.  Unfortunately it seems as if the game is still moving a bit fast for him, but I have no doubt that he'll pick it up and be a very solid NFL QB eventually, he just needs to calm down a bit and let the game come to him more.

Did anyone else hear the Denard love from coach Gruden?  They were talking about how Henne and Brady both started for UM, then Gruden says something like "I don't know if either of them could start for Michigan right now, that Denard Robinson is something else"
