exactly. Had we started Henne it could have gone real bad real fast
with a rookie, a new OL with a rookie LT, and a bannd of journeymen
and suspect receivers. Because we got a proven vet to steer the ship
through the early rough waters and he has succeed (unlike last year)
it will make Henne's introduction that much easier. But I don't think
it's fair to compare him here to other teams with rookies - especially
when Atlanta has the luxury of more weapons on offense and Baltimore
has more weapons on defense.
