    Henry is so unique that if you add someone with a more 'normal' skillset in terms of a running back, you'd have 2 backs that complemented each other really well.

    Agree with the comments that he doesnt suit our OL

    The only RB that would suit our OL as it is is Barry Sanders.

    Jerome Bettis was basically a better version of Blount.

    That's a really minimalist description and doesn't tell you much.

    What matters is "how much better?"

    When your QB has the highest sack percentage in the NFL and your RBs 1st contact is - 1 behind scrimmage it's not hard to identify the problem.


    Hint: The OL sucks. Henry is more than serviceable.

    Kinda funny because Henry used to try to bounce everything and would kill drives.

    Now he is doing exactly what we wanted him to do. He's running hard and smart. And we are down on him because he isn't breaking off big plays.

    Why does Derrick Henry not use his turd hair to impale defenders? That thing looks like its made of concrete.

    Henry is frustrating to watch sometimes, but as many on here are pointing to I think the O line isnt doing him any real favors.

    Sorry, but Henry is so much better than Blount. May be early in Blount's career they could be considered similar because their size and speed were similar, but Blount put on a good bit of weight as recently as 2014 and lost speed as a result.

    Henry is in many ways similar to Jim Brown. I know that's lofty comparison, but let's also consider that Brown in today's game wouldn't be as effective either. A more recent candidate is obviously Brandon Jacobs.
