I think switching QBs is a horrible idea. But we need a Shotgun package of plays for Chad Henne to run. But as long as Pennington is our QB, we should bring Henne in on 3rd and over 7-8 yards. Our completion percentage of these downs last year was almost zero so what do we have to lose? Last year we were far away the worse in the NFL at converting 3rd and long. For us, 3rd and 8 yards is a drive stopper. They broke down this stat late last season. I was stunned. But sure enough, I noticed after that we never made a 3rd and long. A penalty kills our drives. A sack kills our drives. It made me realize just how hard it is for our offense to keep drives going. We can never make mistakes. We can never play from too far behind. Time after time after time we would dump off on 3rd down for 5 yards and punt. Think about that. We completed only a couple of 3rd and longs during the entire season last year. So why not bring Chad Henne in on those downs? If he can complete 10-15% of them we are a better team. If he cannot complete some of them then we need to look into drafting another QB. Chad Henne is far away our best chance of making 3rd and long. Since he can throw a 40 yard pass, it will also open up the underneath. No defense is afraid of Pennington throwing over 20 yards so they sit 8-10 yards off the LOS. He has no underneath passes because no one is sitting back. Plus with Henne's zip on the ball he can hit a WR on something besides a curl. I almost hate to bring this up but in Tim Tebow's freshman year the Gators brought him in on 3rd or 4th and short. Because he was their best chance of making one yard. Chad Henne is our best chance of making 8 yards. It may sound crazy but that how Randall Cunningham got his start with the Eagles. He came in for Ron Jaworski on 3rd and longs. He eventually took the job completely. Fuxk it, put Pat White in the shotgun formation on 3rd and long and trade Chad Henne now if you think he cannot do it. We bring Pat White in to throw twice a game so why not bring Henne in to throw 7 times? Or should we simply quick kick on 3rd and 9? Considering that Sparano is going to keep Chad Pennington as our starter, Chad Henne coming in to complete long passes is our only option.
