  1. Yes, the coaching staff is brilliant for running shotgun spread without Henry on 3rd and short.

  2. No, Derrick Henry is enough of a threat that he should be on the field on 3rd and short.

    Henry should be given some breathers on first and second down (something that rarely happens) and be given more opportunities on third down.

    Yes but we should've won today without Henry getting a massive workload.

    We have to give Henry the workload at the end of the season. Henry can run for 140 yards a game and if Tanny gets sacked 4 times a game, we're not going to win.

    Don't run Henry into ground right now. Downing needs to be more creative.

    Mix up drives then, not just 3rd downs.

    quit running Henry in the middle of an 8 man front.

    Hell, try a ****ing sweep in first down every now and then.

    To be fair, the only person we could rely on for 3rd down conversions today was McNichols. He had some huge gains on 3rd for us today.

    Did you read the post? This is not about McNichol's, its about taking Henry out in critical 3rd or 4th and short situations. You can play McNichols on 3rd and long, which is where he did all his damage.

    This is about an offensive coaching staff that is making objectively bad decisions that telegraph what the offense is doing simply through personnel and formation.

    In the Packers/Broncos Superbowl, Mike Shanahan - a coach that's not stupid, once told an injured Terrell Davis (who was literally blind from a concussion) to walk out there just because his presence on the field made the defense think it was a run.

    Here's a video of coaching by someone who is not mentally challenged: Road To The Hall: Davis' Super Bowl migraine - YouTube

    No reason for Henry to be taken off the field 3rd and 2 or less. Other than that, no complaints. But the Jets just pinned their ears back on 3rd down all day today. They knew we weren’t running. That’s when it becomes a problem.
