Poor Chad Henne gets no respect.
Not only does everyone want to give his job away to rookie Blake Bortles, but fantasy owners prefer a guy who just lives in Jacksonville to the Jaguars starting quarterback.
ESPN just tweeted out word that more people in their fantasy leagues own Tim Tebow (1.3 percent of teams) than Henne (0.8).
Now granted, people do silly things with fantasy teams all the time, for the sake of being able to play the “he was ahead of his time” card with their buddies.
(Full disclosure, in 2002, Steve Spurrier’s first year with the Redskins, I drafted Danny Wuerffel, Shane Matthews and Patrick Ramsey to cash in on all those points when Spurrier inevitably shuffled quarterbacks like he did at Florida. Yeah, that was stupid.)
Maybe all those people will look like geniuses when Tebow leaps out of his chair on the broadcast set and leads some team to record rushing numbers.
Or maybe, somebody should have kept their buddies from turning too much water into too much wine during the draft.
