secrecy rules

Chad Henne took about half the reps in practice on Friday, and coach Sparano said he was "leaning to" starting Henne.

However, what you probably didn't read anywhere is that Henne was only involved in the team portion of the drills (and didn't practice in individual or smaller group drills) and was limited to handoffs and straight drop back passes.  He did not run any rollouts, nor was he forced to step up.

My hunch tells me this another Sparano ruse designed to make the Raiders prepare for two QBs, thus giving the Fins a slight edge.

I do not believe Henne will start.

BTW, one person at practice the other day commented that it would only take one good hit on Henne to knock him out for the season, so there's another reason not to start him.

But why would they tell us that?  He's "questionable" and from a Vegas standpoint, the game is off the boards.
