I sure hope Derrick Henry is a beast this year

    I’m hoping that’s more of a communications issue than lack of talent on the OL. I fear it’s both.

    Also one thing to point out is Buffalo did an amazing job of tackling. Noticed Buffalo defenders never tried to square up with Henry, every defender dived at his legs. When you're almost 6'4" and run like Henry (not shifty, but long strides), that's something he's going to have to learn to adapt to and possibly change his game especially when he's getting no help from his OL.

    Tackling so far has looked like the 2018 D. It’s been real bad

    Besides the O-line looking like a crab pot being pulled out of the water, the tackling is what upset me the most. I couldn't come away from that game with one positive thing to say. Looked, smelled, and tasted like **** in all aspects. I stopped watching early in the 4th when the rookie was put in, and we weren't having him pass the ball. Should have had him sailing it or throwing picks.

    The tackling on that 1st bill TD to the FB had me steaming. Look like amateur's out there.

    I think Henry is fine... If the OLine will stop letting 3-4 in the backfield.

    At one point last night he was tackled in the backfield like 8 out of 13 times or something like that... Hard for ANY RB to do anything when they're being tackled before they can even get going.

    Telling when the announcers are baffled by free rushers being in the backfield every play. Lots of communication issues plus a rookie and backup on the OLine didn't help.

    On one play, 3 Titans whiffed on blocks allowing Henry to get tackled in the backfield

    At some point the staff and FO need to be held accountable for the crap product on the field as much as the players

    It's the only reason why I miss owners like Bud and Al Davis, when the product went to shat heads would be put on notice or roll.

    Keith Carter has to be fired. I am amazed at the people who defend him and act like our O-line has been adequate. It has been crap since that man has arrived and will be crap as long as he is here.

    Our run blocking has been surprisingly good. Which means either Henry isn't playing well or defenses aren't threatened by our pass and collapse on the run.
