HENSON TAKES IT IN THE POOPER - AGAIN

Despite a "breakout" season in NFL Europe, Drew Henson has gotten the boot from Bill Parcells and the Dallas Cowboys. This comes two years after Henson quit baseball because he whiffed on more curveballs than Pedro Cerrano.

Let's put this in perspective for you:

* The Cowboys' No. 2 quarterback, Tony Romo, played Division 1-AA football at Eastern Illinois and went undrafted in 2003.

* Drew Henson was taken in the 6th round that same year (192nd overall) by the Houston Texas, even though he was playing baseball at the time (by the way, this AP story is wrong - Henson was not drafted in 2002).

* The guy everyone wanted to bench for Henson at Michigan, Tom Brady, is a 3-time Super Bowl champion.

* Henson's disastrous replacement, John Navarre, is STILL in the NFL (although we maintain his move to the sporting goods industry is imminent).

Here's hoping the Lions take a chance on him - Henson can't be any worse than Dan Orlovsky. Otherwise, it might be time for Drew to break out the glove again....

my friend went over to Drew Henson's house sometime last year and said that all the TV's in every room had old Michigan games when Henson was playing on them....kind of creepy

To say that Navarre was Henson's disastrous replacement is ignorant.

Navarre had the misfortune of following Griese, Brady and Henson, but he holds several Michigan passing record including:
- 9,254 career yards
- 72 career passing touchdowns
- 1,366 career pass attempts
- 765 career completions.

John Navarre also holds the Michigan record and maybe the national record for most passes thrown by a 6'5" quarterback batted down at the line of scrimmage. He can also be credited with most passes bounced at the feet of receivers.

If I ever hear mention of navarre again it brings back the era of UM under achieving teams. I don't give a damn about jn's passing records, he was no leader and was forced into being something he was not by Carr - don't go there either (enuff said). As for Drew baby, he got what he deserved, a bribe from an osu booster called steinbrenner. You know the story: the bugeyes were fearful of hensen's potential (as they are of every Michigan team) and found a way to buy him out of A2 via the george/wife/osu $connection$. osu got their victories and hensen got the balls; he just had a hard time adjusting between circular vs. oblong throwing devices. So long drew and thanks for selling out. Bo would have made mince meat of you just like he did frieder (another wannabe looser). I knew Rick Leach, went to schoold with him, and Senator, you're no Ricky Leach.
