    What are you trying to say?;)
    Would you go as far as to say that the Titans might try to pick one with their 1st round?

  2. Actually no....what I am saying is that we will prolly take an OL in the first round and then take another RB in the second or third.

    Henry looked good, several carries for 7 or 8 yards on first down... for some reason they shut us down in the second half in terms of running game. We weren't running much for the last quarter and a half. I saw better running from Henry today that we've seen from Brown in two years.

    Henrys last three carries -5, -4, -1

    OUCH!

    the -5 and -4 came on a 1st and 10 from the Titan 20 resulting in a 3rd and 19 from the 11 - OUCH!

    Travis Henry is the starting RB for the Tennessee Titans.
    In my view it is his job to lose.

    Funny but if Brown had been hit in the backfield and denied that short yardage 1st down everyone would be calling him a wimp that doesn't run hard (Henry ran for 9 yards and then couldn't convert the 3rd and 1 on the first Titan drive). Well it happened to Henry numerous times where the OL didn't block and he was swarmed under (9 carries of 1 or less yards out of 21). I think Brown and Henry are both good backs with different styles but neither will put consistent numbers up with our OL and running scheme. Also, either LW is no better than Ganther or the OL and scheme stink for him as well. Figure it out.

    Here are the yardage numbers for Henry on his carries:
    9,0,1,5,3,1,0,3,1,11,8,1,9,5,3,5,4,-5,-4,-1

    I do think someone with Henry's style is better suited for this OL because he is more of a power runner but in the end the results are no better. Atleast with brown there is a slim chance he might take off for a big run. Heck the power running Henry was getting negative yardage against the Dolphins.
    (PS, Chow is worthless).
