    Henry had a lot of fumbles early in his career, but he has cut them down since 2002. Still not perfect, but certainly no worse than Brown's fumbling.

    Tiki Barber was the same way early in his career and he started holding the ball correctly and that fixed everything.

    As of right now, I'll take Henry over Brown for next season.

    I'm in the "fix the O-line" camp.
    Both backs are fine. People say Brown is a wuss and Henry is a druggie.
    They say Brown goes down easily and that Henry can't hold onto the ball.
    That a bunch of malarkey.
    (Exaggerated or foolish talk, usually intended to deceive)

    It is true that a better back or tandem of backs could exist.
    It's not like these guys are Larry freakin' Johnson and Shawn Alexander...
    It's just that this Titans ball club has got so many problems at so many positions...metaphorically speaking...
    why are you worried about replacing a cart that is good enough when your horse is gimp? (cart before the horse) ... I know you people hate it when I talk like that but the issue of getting rid of these guys in favor of bringing in some high dollar guy is nutty. Besides, Henry has been looking good. We should keep them both.

    Both Brown and Henry have fumbled a lot of times per amount of rushes they've had for their career. Both their fumbles per attempt are about the same, so that shouldn't make you lean toward Brown. The good thing is Henry has fumbled a lot less lately, and Brown has done better since the beginning of the year.

    I still like the duo. Henry can run very hard. Brown has better vision and is faster. Too bad we can't combine them into one super back. Maybe they should put some drug cluase in Henry's contract (if it's not there already) to be an extra deterrent against doing drugs again. And maybe they should also try to shrink his salary some (I don't think it's very big).

    I'd like to see what the pair could do behind say Denver or KC's line....but I'd settle for seeing what they'd do behind a better Tennessee line.

    RANDOM RUMINATIONS:
    I'm for the OL-reload as well. Although I think I'd like to get a future-QB in this draft, I'm for building up the OL with some maulers. Perhaps at least one in FA...I've also got one foot in the AJ Hawk bandwagon (but not with a top-10 pick)

    Bell will probably fit more naturally at G, IMO.

    Did somebody say Corey Chavous at S next season? Yes, please.

    Calico is breaking my heart.

    i'd fix the O-Line more then anything else, it would not only help the running game, but protect the QB more without having him scramble.
