    Probably not going to sway minds but, I did the research of 3rd and 2 or less with handoffs to EG27 and BDH. Here’s the results:

    EG27 in 7 years
    80/119, 6 TD. 67%
    5/8, 1 TD in the post season.

    BDH in 7.5 years (2021 years injury)
    65/88, 11 TD. 74%
    4/6 post season.

    I didn’t factor any 4th downs or anything 3 or longer to go.
    It’s also known that Henry is regularly taken out on 3rds (despite his success) which kept his numbers a little lower.

    Pretty sure you just proved beyond a shadow of a doubt that Henry is the best RB in Titans’ history. Thank you for your service.

    Or he got caught because of lack of blocking or players taking better angles
    But he does seem to be a bit slower

    I think it’s more the surprise and shock that he actually made it past the OL and into the second tier of the D.

    Totally worthless info but....... D Henry was easily the AFC's best player on their dodge ball team at the ProBowl Skills competition last night. I think he got out 3 of the 6 NFC team members...

    That’s the norm for lumbering power backs who have lost a step.

    Henry has not lost a step....he played behind a crap line and a dysfunctional coach staff....he's still a beast
