No, it can't even remotely be considered his fault and I'll prove it.The 10 reasons why Henry isn't to blame what transpired during the attempted fake punt:1. For the last two seasons - and even before that - another former Gator has been blasted for his lack of potential to be a successful NFL quarterback. I'm of course referring to Tim Tebow.

Late Night Laughs: Philadelphia Eagles Fan Rapping Outside Stadium On Monday Night
