Two weeks in a row Drew Henson and the Rhien Fire have played the Amsterdam Admirals and two weeks in a row they've lost. The score today was 30-21 and drops the Fire into a tie for second place at 4-2 while Amsterdam leads NFLE with a 5-1 record.
Drew Henson was 17-of-35 for 161 yards and two touchdowns, one coming on the last play of the game when the outcome was already determined. He also threw an interception in the 4th quarter. Henson had an average game but was forced to play without his two top recievers, who were out with injury, and with an offensive line that provided very poor protection.
We should get a read on Henson's ability to rally a team after losing two straight. Next week he takes on the Berlin Thunder. The Fire blazed to a 4-0 start this season before the back-to-back losses to the Admirals. It's easy to play when everything is going well, now Henson will have to show the ability to come back from adversity. Of course, getting a little help from his offenisve line and getting his main receivers back would help that process along. I will say one thing, Henson can take a physical beating.
The Frankfurt Galaxy is tied with the Rhein Fire for second place in NFLE. CB Lenny Williams, who Dallas allocated to the Galaxy, had an interception in Frankfurt's win today.
