Haha! I honestly forgot Mariota won a Heisman.
Henry is a liability when it comes to pass blocking. But he can do everything else. To say he “can’t catch” is stupid. He’s not Barkley, Elliot, Cook, or Bell, but there aren’t many of those guys. Henry has been grossly misused by this organization. He should be a 1200 yard back, but our staffs have been clueless and our QB has been below average. With competent coaching and QB play, Henry should be in on every snap except obvious passing downs.
Henry ran hard yesterday. We just need a non-midget 2nd back, and quarterback play, and an OL.
I'm over Henry hell Lindsey the Broncos rb ran hard than him and he's a midget ginger. We are literally reduced to running tosses just for him to gain yards. He's the only back that consistently gets you 1 yard but when we need one yard he looses yards.
I'm at the point in thinking Henry is a better compliment back to an all around RB. Behind DeMarco Murray he was able to hide his average hands and average pass protection skills and just beat up on worn down defenses.
Its year 4 for him and hes ho better at this stuff than when he was a rookie.
What we need is an elusive runner who's base isnt so wide, so that when he makes his 2nd effort at the line he doesnt just stop. Henry loses his momentum too often, and hes too long to recoil in time.
Behind this line Henry doesnt work very well.
Henry was actually fairly effective on his 1st down runs... gains of 6, 4, 4, 1, -1,-2,5,-1
So 4 of his 1st down carries went for 4 or more yds....I'll take 4 yrds on 1st down all day...and negative runs are usually because of poor OL play
Here are the stats of Titans production on 1st down when Henry didn't get the ball... incompletion, 1 yrd Dawkins, 5 yrd Mariota scramble, incompletion, incompletion, incompletion, incompletion, -10 yrd sack on Tanny....on the final drive we gained 8, 6, 16,10, and 4 yrds on 1st down during garbage time.
So we didn't complete a first down throw until late in the game....
I've always believed a RB needs to be able to create his own yards. Henry is stuck in a small space with a high center of gravity. Thats a bad combination.
He needs space to operate. If we want to stick with Henry we have to stretch the defense, not run up the middle..
Henry is basically a better version of Blount, hard to hear for some people but it’s the truth.
I don’t think he is someone you can build a backfield around.
I’ve seen flashes of promise and 1 incredible month by Henry but no way is better than what Blount did.
Be potentially better doesn’t mean better.
