    SUMMARY: For the first time in a long time, the Titans got the running game going early yesterday against the Dolphins. RB Travis Henry ran strong during the first half racking up 53 yards on 14 carries in the first half. But in the fourth quarter, Henry was stopped on two runs for minus-10 yards when the Dolphins ran safety blitzes. "They hit us two times for negative five and that kind of discouraged the play calling," Henry said. "We just never could get back on track after those two negative plays. It was good to get a chance to get in a rhythm," Henry said. "I think I got better as the game went on. I would have gotten better, but we were trying to search for a big play and we got away from running the ball."

    LenDale's a big guy, I'd rather him learn off of watching Henry's running, instead of Brown's high and get crushed running style. Why are we keeping Brown? Seriously...

    By calling Henry a has been your are admitting he was once a success. He's low mileage & can be successful again.

    Sicknote Brown isn't a has been,he's a never was,we're still waitng for him to show up.

    I don't know why everybody thinks Henry is so good all of the sudden. I still think he sucks. And you don't need LenDale to learn from him. This is not the qb position this is the rb position. Look at all the rookies who have been successful their first year when they started. But the only thing LenDale will need to learn as a young RB, is how to pick up the blitz, and Henry might help him there. But I think we should start White.

    yes yes... travis henry is the man!
    he had an amazing 2.85 YPC yesterday. wow... and an 11 yard run? oh, oh that just touches me in all the right places

    the funny thing is that magnificent YPC is magified by an 11 yard run.. take that away and he has an eye-popping 2.45 YPC

    whats even better is that he had the best run blocking of the year yesterday. henry sucks. brown sucks.

    i still like brown more though. he hits the hole faster... henry can make guys miss but what good is that when you are too slow to do anything after they miss? great for short yardage... crappy for anything else.
    i say we trade both at the first opportunity.

    the minus yards were his fault for running backwards. he didnt get hit that deep either time
