Chad Henne Dissing Tebow? You're kidding, right?

From Yahoo Sports:

"My judgment is he's not an NFL quarterback. I'll leave it at that."

—Dolphins quarterback Chad Henne on former Gator quarterback Tim Tebow. However, Henne didn't leave it at that, later backtracking with, "I didn't really say he wasn't able to be (an NFL quarterback). We're all in this process of learning how to be an NFL quarterback. Obviously he's taking the right steps to improve his game. His throwing motion actually looks a lot better with his release and everything. I think his Pro Day went really well and he was happy with it."

Mr. Tebow has a Heisman, Mr. Henne does not.

Mr. Tebow was twice a first-team All-American. Mr. Henne was never a first-team all American

Mr. Tebow was once a second-team All-American. Mr. Henne was never a second-team All-American.

Mr. Tebow won the Maxwell Award twice. Mr. Henne was once a Maxwell Award finalist.

Mr. Tebow was three times First Team All-SEC. Mr. Henne was once All-Big Ten Conference Honorable Mention and once All-Big Ten Conference Second Team.

Mr. Tebow was on a National Champtionship team. Michigan has had no national championship football team in many years.

He's a great person [Tebow] and a heck of a quarterback. He's a courageous, competitive, playmaking, indestructible force, and I think he's going to be a great success.

"As a coach, I always like winners," [former Indianapolis Head Coach Tony] Dungy said. "Tim Tebow doesn't have the classic throwing motion, he doesn't have the accuracy, maybe, right now that some people are looking for, but I think when he gets into a pro system that really stresses throwing the ball accurately, the big thing is he makes the people around him better. And he's won. ... I think he's going to be a great player in the NFL."

Dungy said that if he were running a team with a Top 10 pick, he'd take Tebow. Patrick then asked Dungy who he'd pick for his team if he could have any of the top college quarterbacks, including Washington's Jake Locker, Notre Dame's Jimmy Clausen, Oklahoma's Sam Bradford and Texas's Colt McCoy. Dungy didn't hesitate and said, "I'm taking Tebow."
