    I really hope so, man. I still have ptsd over CJ getting paid and immediately turning into trash.

    Henry was just on the phone with the Nashville media and basically said now more than ever hes going to go hard everyday so he can keep filling his new born daughters trust fund with new money

    Sounds good as a fan

    CJ gave signs early on though. At the end of his rookie year he was a sore loser about some of the rookie awards. I remember thinking at the time he might not be a long-term guy like George.

    Totally different sets of circumstances. Chris Johnson began his career as the #1 back, Derrick Henry was backing up DeMarco Murray and began his career with a light workload. Chris Johnson toted the ball 251 times his rookie season which was more than Henry ever carried the ball until the 2019 season. CJ carried the ball 1,187 times his first four seasons, not to mention his heavy pass catching volume. Henry toted the ball 804 times his first four seasons and was never a factor as a pass catcher.

    This is all true, however look at these guys builds. One is not like the other. Henry is made to carry a team. CJ was best as a sideshow and was over used.

    I dont have any of the same criticisms of Henry that I had for CJ at this point in their careers.

    CJ changed as a running back after the injury. After that he was scared to take a hit and dropped down the moment someone touched him.

    This is what happens when you have players that don't bring a circus with him, and a team that has good coaches and a front office that respects their players and pays them a fair value.
