Wasn't this kid a back-up his entire college career ?
Indeed. But you should have seen what he would have done if he started.

that was brutal.
there will never ever be another thread about chris henry without that clip.
i don't know about you, but the hit seems just as hard as it did the first time I saw it. That's usually rare that it receives the same amount of shock value from me each time though )
All that being said, I hope he gets himself on the right track, and does very well for us for the next few years.
I still admire Henry for holding onto the ball, and getting right back up. Take the hit son, but show 'em you're not scared. Attaboy Chris.
But it is a fairly relevant clip, because it shows how raw he is. I have never seen someone just slow up like that right before contact. I admit, running right into a hungry DT would be terrifying, but if you slow up, you've got no momentum and he's going to crush you. At least get down low or something.
We've seen that he has some great athletic ability, he just needs to learn to play the game and see the field. The former can be taught. The latter, however... his vision and reactions are so poor now, they may never be fully overcome. We'll see.
I'm one of like 5 people who still like him and can think he can do good.
I like him and hope he does well, but drafting Chris Johnson really says something.
his vision is a seirous problem...n i agree w/ tackhead...how can he just kinda stop...n not try to do something...ur basicalyl come to a fullstop for train...lookin at the positive...yeh i like his toughness...to get up so quick from such a hit..for real
on the other hand...ppl quick to point out how he was third string and didnt seem to hold up gainst the competition...but our first glimpses of henry were crazy...i remember his first couple of games he played in...some good highlights...either way if we had played hiim a bit more who knows what coulda happened...perhaps if he was another team...his play woulda garnered a start or two..but here...in our system...he didnt get a start...
all in all...his lack of playing time mighta been somewhat a product of jeff's 'favoring' quality
