  • Chad Henne vs Rex Grossman

    Anyone think he's comparable to Rex Grossman? Similar size 6'2 225 for Henne, and 6'1 217 for Grossman. Both have strong arms and can throw the deep ball quite well. Neither is considered a mobile QB. Both go through huge bouts of inconsistency. Just throwing it out there.

    That comparison makes me cringe, though it has its valid points. I can only hope Henne is more successful as a Pro than Grossman.

      Pretty good comparison actually, have never heard it before. I think Henne is slightly better when it comes to arm strength and accuracy but they both have struggled with inconsistency.

        haha i was worried you guys would be like...no way!! henne kicks grossman's ass! but yea the comparison just came to me on a whim. as far as a pure tools standpoint, i think Henne edges Grossman out, though not by much.

          I see why some people knock Henne's consistency, but I don't think his problems are as profound as Grossman's are. Chad Henne has only thrown 8 INT in each of the last two years. In 37 games played, he's only thrown more INT than TD in 5 of those game. He's never had any of those really bad games that Rex Grossman has. I've watched nearly all of Chad Henne's game and never have I thought that a Michigan loss was completely on his shoulders. Henne has some consistency issues (especially in the intermediate passing game) but I wouldn't compare them to Grossman's issues just yet. I can see where the comparison came from, I just think it's a bit of an extreme one at this point.

            I'm in the minority I guess. I really like Chad Henne as a prospect and think a great senior season will do him wonders.

              I don't think Henne has shown me enough as a QB yet. He hasn't really won any big games ever. Beating ND last year doesn't count, they were probably the 20th best team in the country. He hasn't really had any games where you come away from saying "wow, that Henne kid really lit it up today" like the heisman winning/contending QBs do. He's like a better John Navarre in that aspect.

              Anyways....low release point and a lot of tipped passes, but should be a first or early 2nd round pick and a starting QB in the NFL.

                  Grossman is maybe barely 6 foot...

                  And you cant compare Grossmans inconsistant year for the Bears to Chad Henne in college. If you are going to compare them as prospects, then do it as prospects, and not bring Grossmans career into it

                    I like him a lot too. I was impressed by how he played even in the games Michigan lost. He showed up against Ohio State and USC and did his part.

                      My buddy? How does one so-called "expert" make my position the majority?

                        i dunno, i was just looking for an adjective to put in front of todd mcshay.

                        And i should have said "you're not alone."

                          There is a glut of Quarterbacks this draft. If all things go as planned, and they never do, this could be the best QB class in a long time.

                            I'm really not a fan of Hene as a prospect. Yes, the inconsistancies in the intermediate passing game are are big problem. But I think that is the door opener to a bigger problem. I see that smetimes he has problems with just strait up accuracy. He can't put the ball through the tire at times, and to be a QB in the NFL, you have to be able to put it through the tire. Now, I haven't seen tons of him, so I could be off a bit, but that's just the problem I see. However, as far as what Shiver just said, he's 100% correct. This could be one hell of a class.

                              at least someone realizes this comparison is for both players as prospects. I think Grossman was a better prospect cause in his years in florida he never had a mike hart or a manningham to make him look good and i really cant see chad henne as a first rounder
