    It’s only been a one game, and they knew we’d be leaning on 22. I won’t be concerned til I see this continuing after 3 games.

    His attempts have also gone up. Can't expect 5ypc on 400+ runs. Plus Henry has always been a grinder that wears down defenses and then pops the big runs late. Also, I'm sure his week 1 stats have been pretty bad every season. The Titans aren't known to come out of the gate rolling.

    You can wish in one hand and sh*t in the other and see which one fills up first.

    From what I am seeing is he is dancing too much. It doesn't help that the line is **** and allowing people into his face in the back field. But even on those runs when he has an opening, you don't see him plant and push forward, his still jittery.

    There were plenty of times, vs the Giants and last night, were if Henry made a cut back he had nothing but green grass but he didn't, he chose to hit the wall. He made these cuts before the broken foot, I think it's mental thing with him and his foot he's battling right now.

    The announcers last night summed it up: if Henry’s feet stop behind the line, he’s done.

    This is a combo of crap run blocking and Henry not being close to what he was before injury. Even when there was space, he sometimes lacked the burst to get to it before it was gone.

    All we can hope for is that this OL improves as they gain experience working together and Henry returns to form.

    Yup, and also like they mentioned, we kept letting unaccounted rushers through.
