    the King is off to a great start and I held off a couple weeks to get this started.
    He is currently in the lead early to claim the rushing title for a 3rd year in a row to match only Emmitt Smith and Jim Brown as the only 2 others to accomplish this.
    He’s also on pace for back to back 2K seasons and potentially a new NFL record with an extra regular season game.

    Here’s the current race AND King Henry vs. previous 2K rushers:
    73’ Simpson - 813
    03’ Lewis - 742
    98’ Davis - 657
    Henry - 640
    20’ Henry - 588
    Chubb - 523
    84’ Dickerson - 498
    09’ CJ2K - 468
    97’ Sanders - 466
    Elliott - 452
    12’ Peterson - 420
    Robinson - 387


    Current lead is 117 over Chubb
    Current deficit to OJ Simpson (73’) 173 although this is about beating Dickerson (84’) which he leads by 142. (Chubb is also ahead by 25 yards).

    Not all stats have been updated for week 5 considering game KC/Buf are still playing and Indy/Balt are tomorrow, so only current top 4 for 2021 are listed.

    EDIT mistake:

    If Henry wins title this year, he is #4 to reach 3 straight rushing titles.
    I missed our very own Earl Campbell from 78-80.

    Emmitt 91-93
    Jim Brown 57-59

    Little longer term, 3 players won 4/5 seasons, Emmitt Smith (add 95), Jim Brown (add 1961), and OJ Simpson 72-73 and 75-76.

    He and Dickerson are the only 2 to reach 2K before week 16. Dickerson needed only15 games, OJ only 14.

    EG had 74 total TD, 64 rushing.
    Campbell had 73 total, all rushing

    Henry just surpassed CJ2K a couple games ago
    He has 65 total, 62 rushing. Only 2 more rushing to tie EG.

    CJ2K is #4. 58 total, 50 rushing.

    Steep drop of to Hennigan who had 51 receiving TD from 1960-66.

    He was a killer.

    Henry has been such a bright spot in an otherwise disappointing offense. I love how we got him involved more in the passing game (except for Jacksonville for some reason) and if we can fix the passing game, this team can still be dangerous.

    Enjoy watching #22 while we can, because we might not ever see another Titan wear that number again.

    Wish this franchise didn’t run running backs into the ground. I’d rather them have Henry around longer than chase records We may not see it this year, but all these carries will catch up to him. Dude is a beast just wish they would look at the long term side of things, and at this rate he will be burnt out if we make the playoffs.

    **** we gotta retire 22 when Henry is done. Guys got all sort of records either topped or equaled. Best rb since Earl Campbell in our franchise. Didn't say Eddie because I believe he surpasses him.
