    Yep. Henry does what he does.

    There were a few times where I thought he looked really sluggish and wasn't hitting it as hard as he could... But in the end, with a comfortable lead Henry always seems to pull through and run clock and get first downs. Occasionally he'll break one of those late runs for a TD and put the game away.

    Defenses don't like to see D Henry running at them in the 4th when they're wore down and want to get off the field. That's his job. Really need another back to compliment him, imo... Lewis just isn't it.

    Look at your stats you posted he's garbage early in games. He only begins to play well when defenses are tired or playing soft because they are up by multiple scores.

    These are your quotes:
    Considering the style of offense and Henry specifically, the slow start makes sense.
    You have to give him the ball a lot which includes the lower numbers at first. He’s the guy wearing out the D. It showed today by how his numbers increased as the game went along.
    None of his carries were garbage time today and he never had a -3 (or worse) carry in the game.

    I’m not looking up every team/every game, but for the most part, I’d bet these are typical for most teams because the D isn’t tired in the first half.

    I feel like in general, you could have made these posts on a lot of weeks, this week is just a really bad example to use to prove your point.

    Ya I did. A 250 pound back who struggles to run up the middle, wtf is that. I've never been high on him if he does well awesome we get the W. But come extension time I say let him walk he's not worth big money. He's worth back up money. CJ hit the middle and between the tackles better than Henry.

    Henry is off to a great start IMO. Just ran for 100yards and didnt even break a big run (meaning lots of chunk plays)

    Hes exactly what you want in an RB, puts games away in the 4th Q.

    Do does Henry lol. How many times did he slip or get shoelace tackled today? I'm just tired of the offense revolving around him in the early parts of games.
