Another year...Another QB Controversy!

  1. I don't want to restate the obvious about how disappointed we all are about the season. But I'm more disturbed by the fact that we still haven't figured out the QB situation. Henry was not going to be successful in the offensive scheme that Shoop determined we were going to run no matter who took the snaps. It troubles me that it took so long to figure out Henry wasn't the guy to run THAT offense. We could have used those precious games to evaluate Etling and Appleby this year. Instead we never found a role for Henry even though coaches have talked about how great an athlete he was. He became backup punter, backup safety, backup whatever...In a year where our Punter is probably our MVP, they still tried to replace HIM. I wish we could have had a better season to establish our best chance for a QB for next year. I hope Etling plays well, but I really hope Appleby gets a chance Saturday. And with Blough coming in, I'm not sure how it will sort out if Appleby stays, but I can see why he would leave. I just don't understand how they could play Henry so long in a scheme he couldn't be successful in running. I've spent a lot of time self medicating watching this team try to stop anyone and score. I never dreamed it would be this bad! If we don't improve next year, I'm going to need some serious rehab. Anyway...Boiler Up!
