Found November 18, 2012 on This Given Sunday:
The Jacksonville Jaguars lost today. That's no surprise to anyone who's paid them any attention this season. The manner in which they lost, however, was nothing short of shocking. The Jaguars played the AFC's top team, the Houston Texans, today, and they led much of the game. With just 8 minutes to go, the Jaguars held a 14 point lead, but it just didn't last. Blaine Gabbert exited early in the game after a big hit from a defender. That's when Chad Henne came in and looked like the Jaguars' seasoned starting quarterback. He got off to a quick start, but cooled later in the game. Still, Chad Henne, yes that Chad Henne, threw for 354 yards and four touchdowns against a very good Texans defense. The comical aspect of it all was Blaine Gabbert's status for returning to the game. First he was "probable" to return. Then he was downgraded to "questionable." By the time it was apparent Henne could hold his own, Gabbert was downgraded to ...

Pick Him Back Up: Justin Blackmon

I wanted to wait until my ownership dipped below 50% Juan… Who would of thought that Chad Henne would breathe life into the Jaguars passing attack? Blackmon had almost as many yards yesterday than he did the entire year prior 250-236 and looked like a completely different WR. Can he keep it up? That’s the question. Blackmon has a very beatable schedule with the Titans, Bills...

Week 12 Pass Defense: Hanging with Chad

No more bye weeks!  This is great news for everyone whose team isn’t riddled with injuries.  QBs seem to be dropping like flies with concussions and other assortments of injuries, but for some teams (Jacksonville, I’m looking at you), that’s not necessarily a bad thing. Seriously, if you predicted Chad Henne could come into a game against The Texans and throw 4 TDs for 350...

The With Leather Fantasy Football Support Group: Pick Your Poison For Week 11

My favorite part of this past fantasy football Sunday was a Tweet from ESPN’s resident guy who points out the obvious, Darren Rovell, about Jacksonville Jaguars QB Chad Henne only being owned in .5% of ESPN fantasy leagues. Well, no sh*t, Sherlock. If you were in my league and you had Henne on your bench, you’d either have to be the biggest Jags homer on the planet or every QB...
