    This guy has 122 rushing yards in 2 seasons on 22 carries. You never hear anything about him or from him. He is like a Titan Zombie.


    Anyone know how much longer we going to keep him sitting around in the shadows? How much is he making?

    I saw him once at the Regal Bellevue 12 theater... That's about all I've seen of him since he got jacked up against the Colts on a kick return in the '07 season.

    $785,980 bench warmer. That's $261,993.33 per rushing yard. Bud Adams has been seen visiting the US treasury Dept.

    He's done fine when called upon. I don't know what the FO does or doesn't see in him but given the opportunity he has produced. I wouldn't be ready to give up on him yet.

    CJ was too big of a pick to pass on and since then he hasn't seen the field.



    Why should we "dump" him?

    I get the distinct impression that Henry is in Fisher's doghouse...for whatever reason.

    He runs with more power than anyone else on the roster. Seriously.....in three preseason games last year, Henry pancaked more defenders than Lendale has in his entire career.

    Henry has also demonstrated proficiency as a receiver out of the backfield, and the ability to make defenders miss in the open field.

    Granted, his lack of vision is a problem, and will keep him from ever becoming an every-down player....but I still think he could be a productive #2 RB, and an effective short yardage/goal-line runner. Or, as I like to call him, "a blind man's Marion Barber".

    Yea, that usually happens when you face second and third string defenses.

    It also happens when a player drops his shoulder and runs behind his pads instead of leading with his stomach.
