    I totally agree that Henry is not the type of player to quit after he signs a big deal. He wants to be great and he want to win. That gives me confidence that he will strive to live up to a big contract. But it will be a big contract.

    I bet it will be around 6 years 100 mill...50-60 guaranteed at least.

    One interesting variable in all this will likely be Chris Johnson and maybe Eddie George. CJ is really tight with Amy Adams Strunk, to the point where he's been quoted that if she was running the team back then, CJ would have never left. Sometimes personal relationships can be a factor in how negotiations go. Yes, its still a business. But if I'm TitansAmy, I'm thinking that Henry probably wants a 5 year deal instead of the 3-4 conventional wisdom would dictate and they may roll the dice thinking he's going to be more of a Frank Gore kind of back that still can be effective into his 30s. We'll see.

    Totally agree he is playing like Earl in his prime and better. But he has to keep doing it. He is not better than Earl yet. Make the Hall of Fame and then you can have an argument Hagar he is better than Earl.

    And if he doesn’t do it for a career or for a number of seasons he won’t be a hall of famer and Earl will be better.

    Or close to it, yes. Running the ball for sure—might be some past backs that have come close to the performance if you count receiving yds...but it is damn impressive regardless.
