    The more I think about it the more I think it makes sense to move on from Henry. Investing that type of money in a RB is usually a mistake. I feel we could find his replacement in the second round. Dobbins, Entienne, Moss, Harris, Hubbard etc. some of these guy should be there in the third. Thoughts?

    We need another Bishop Sankey.

    You should've bought this thread up after a bad performance from Henry, not from a performance where we would've won with Henry in the game.

    I thought this was a post about drafting someone to back up or compliment Henry.

    I hate the thought of paying Henry 12+ mil a year, or any rb that kind of money. But we kinda have to, he is the face of this franchise right now. We can't just let him leave.

    And looking at the bright side of it, he's still just 25 years old, so we should have him for 3-4 prime years before he hits the decline. So while it sucks using that much cap on a rb, it makes the most since for the Titans.

    But actually don’t have too...the teams that regularly win don’t make such decisions. They don’t do what fans think they have to do.

    I think you made my point for me. We could have easily won without him. If we had a solid starting running back like Dobbins or Etienne it would have been enough. And if we could spend that cap space on other positions it would keep us competitive. If you pay Henry a boat load you lose pieces that made you competitive in this game and this season.

    I think a lot of people assume we can go get any free agent we want.

    I'm not sure it works that way. Plus we haven't exactly killed it buying talent.

    If we had a legit Oline, we could get away with getting almost any RB.

    But we don't. So we need a workhorse until that time.

    The line has actually played well the last half of the season. And we had two scrubs play today and almost beat one of the best teams in the league. We scored 28 pts without Henry. We don’t need Henry. Money could be spent in better places.
