Jake...
The difference between Hutchinson and Henson is that Hutchinson was never very highly touted coming out of college. There was a time when Henson was THE top college QB prospect in America. I'm hoping he's lost a step from his baseball days because other wise it could mean trouble.

Based on the fact that the reception from scouts for Henson was luke warm at best, I'm not worried. The guy has not been on a football field in two years. Then again Tom Brady was a sixth round pick and Hensons' back up at Michigan.

I'm still not worried.

It's on ESPN.com.

As BRF63 said, he only played 8 games. He's pretty overrated. Also, another reason he was highly touted was because he was a Yankee. Hutchinson was in St. Louis, HUGE media difference.

I'm not scared of the boys or impressed by this move. I wouldn't take Tim Couch but if I had a choice I would rather have him than Henson.

Couch has proven that he can play in this league. Without an offensive line or running back.

Anyway, all this means is that if the Cowboys sign 2 or 3 more quarterbacks they'll have a good starter rotation going by Opening Day, and a few more and they can go play the Orioles.

jake muh man...this is something to worry about in 3 years...not now.

Beware however the Cowboys now have a Thourough bread in the stable...the question will be can the cowboys turn him into a franchise QB....i think they can.

This is a smart, low risk move by the Cowboys, with a huge payoff, if it works out. They've got plenty of cap space, and no easy shot at another potential franchise QB in the near future. Good move by JJ... ack... ptoie... sputter...

Now, if you'll excuse me, I need to go wash my mouth out with soap. (hack... gag...)

Yeah but in 2 or 3 years , all of Syders wild spending you will have to cut players from other positions and might end up with alot of dead money.

I think he is a good start at becoming a franchise QB that can take you to the next level. Like SirSmizzy said, it was a low cost risk that could have a huge payoff. The guy started in front of Tom Brady, so if the tutoring of Sean Payton that turned Kerry Collins around can get this guy back into QB form by next year(2005), we will have a real good shot at some more rings! Make him sit a year though!
