    Exclamation Thigpen traded to the Dolphins

    Just heard on ESPN. Chiefs QB Tyler Thigpen was just traded to the Miami Dolphins

    Why not try Henne?

    More like, why not trade Brodie Croyle. He's atrocious.


    Chiefs!

    Who says they are not going to go with Henne. But the only two QBs on that roster are Henne and White. IMO, Pat White was never drafted to be a true, every down QB. So they really have just one.

    Gotta have options and back-ups. I think Henne could be a decent NFL quarterback. He's never gonna be Payton Manning. But I do think he could be one of those guys that (eliminating mistakes) "drives the bus" and allows the running game to work.

    Re: Thigpen traded to the Dolphins

    Henne is serviceable, but he needs a backup, and White is not an NFL qb. The fish had to find someone to backup Henne.

    Henne has a cannon of an arm and has great size but IMO doesn't have "it" to be a great NFL QB

    I'm sure Henne will be the guy and Thigpen will be the backup, for the time being anyways.
