The difference between this season and last is that the contest is more than just lip service.
"I think it's a little more competition than last year," Henne said Wednesday, via the team's official website. "They're putting me in different spots, allowing me to get the 'one' reps and really allowing me to get involved with it.
"That's what I'm excited about," Henne added. "My job is to get better from last year and to prove to the guys I can be the leader and quarterback of this offense."
