    If the Titans do go to a zone blocking scheme as the video posted earlier alluded to then Henry should be good against the Jags and the Texans. The play calling by Robiskie last year was predictable and ugly. The zone blocking scheme works better to get Henry involved in the game early and not be a situational substitue RB, not be predictable. I think the video was a nice representation of what Lafleur will try to bring to Tennessee, the ability to use the talent correctly. The titans were a mess offensively last year. Getting Henry to the edge in some zone blocking shoukd be a priority, it softens the middle of the defense and allows Henry to build the momentum he needs and utilize his stiff arm for maximum effectiveness and it opens up the playaction pass. I think Lewis is gonna be really good i. Tennessee but i think Henry will have twice as many TDs as lewis.

    You went a long way around the original question. I too think Lewis is an exceptional RB, at around 10-12 touches a game. I think thats perfect, of course he could have more depending on gameflow but a 10-12 touch per game average would be good. Henry should dominate the 2nd half of games and the 4th quarter specifically, especially with a lead. Somewhere between 15-20 touches per game.

    No stats? Guess ill take your word for it 2016 Lagarette Blount wasnt he on the Patriots that year? Steven Jackson? I think he retired from the Patriots did he not? What team did he go to and do better than he did on the patriots? I think you missed the point of the excercise. Thats ok though. Laurence Maroney had 1 year not on the patriots team and he had 36 carries for 74 yards for Denver.

    Did you quote me for nostalgia purposes? Or was there a question in there? Now that the Titans have a competent coaching staff im sure the useage will reflect that.

    Roy Oswalt is tough.

    Quick question: who was the last RB in the past 10 years to leave the Patriots and have a better statistical season with their new team?

    Love to have seen what Lewis would have done playing behind a hobbled Demarco Murray and in a system that complinented his skills in no way at all with coaches who look like peewee football coaches compared to Bellichick.

    Dont let all that sun fry your brain even worse by the pool, its hot out there. 1 player was running with the best coach staff in the nfl for the past 3 seasons and another player was playing for mike mularkey and terry robiskie. LOL. Henry is close to Lewis in everything you mentioned despite playing with an inept coaching staff and on less touches. The only thing Lewis has a distinct advantage in is pass catching, exactly what he was signed on for
  9. Derrick Henry 2018 Outlook

    Most touches Lewis has had in a season is 215 combined rushing and receiving.

    Its because Lewis is Fragile. Henry is a Mack Truck. What was the most carries Lewis has had in a season? Lewis wasnt good enough or healthy enough to touch the ball 10 times per game for the Patriots but now he will for the Titans? Henry will do the heavy lifting on this team and Lewis will keep them off balance with his speed and quickness

    Ive had some time to digest the Lewis signing. Although i do think Lewis is an excellent RB there are some health concerns about carrying a big load. As the season inches closer and tid bits of info gets released it is looking more like Lewis will be the 3rd down back and to give henry a breather. 15-18 touch average a game for Henry in a zone blocking scheme as your video alluded to would be excellent and if the Titans have a 4th quarter lead Henry will really hammer the opponent the way he did last year when he was 2nd only to Kareem Hunt in 4th quarter production. Lewis is a perfect compliment to the things Henry does not excel at and keepung Lewis to around 9-12 touches per game or so would go a long way towards keeping him healthy all season

    Entering his third season with the Tennessee Titans, former Alabama Heisman winner Derrick Henry gets his first crack at being the guy at running back and the ballcarrier before him is a major believer in his talents. Former Titan Demarco Murray said this week that Henry is in for a breakout season this fall and should be a catalyst for one of the NFL's brightest offenses. “I think Derrick’s a smart guy,” Murray said during an appearance on Adam Schefter's podcast. “He’s a fast guy, very physical, athletic. Now that I’m not there, I think he can hone in on being the guy, and if they use him the right way and if he can consistently be the every-down back, I think he has a great future, a bright future. “The Titans are a great team, great organization and Marcus (Mariota) is going into this fourth year. So, with him having played three years — and I know obviously it’s a new offense, but going through the offseason I think they’re going to simplify things for him a little bit and let him be the quarterback, let him kind of take charge. So I think Derrick will be great. I think he’ll continue to run the ball well and protect the quarterback. I think they’ll be fine.” Henry has rushed for 1,234 yards and 10 touchdowns over two seasons, but has only averaged 9.2 carries per game. With more totes this fall as Tennessee's lead, Henry should set career-bests in every statistical category as long as he stays healthy and the Titans' offense performs to expectations. Henry actually rushed for more yards last season than Murray despite fewer carries, somewhat of a surprise considering Murray was coming off a 1,287-yard campaign the previous year. According to, Murray earned 616 snaps to Henry's 386 during the regular season despite not being a reliable force on the ground. Saddled with a knee injury in the regular-season finale, Murray missed the postseason and was released by the Titans in March. During Murray's absence in a first-round playoff win over Kansas City, Henry emerged with starpower, galloping his way to a 156 yards and two scores. Murray has since met with several teams and says he has used the offseason to properly heal from knee and hamstring concerns dating back to last season. 247Sports NFL analyst analyst Dan Cotton projects a 900-yard season out of Henry with considerable production as a pass-catcher. The Titans signed speedy veteran tailback Dion Lewis in the offseason to create a potential thunder and lightning pairing with Henry. Lewis shouldn't affect Henry's carry totals on early downs and will be primarily used as a change of pace weapon for Mariota and Co. under new offensive coordinator Matt LaFleur.

    TitansOnline's Jim Wyatt writes the Titans "plan" for Derrick Henry "to be the lead back." Wyatt adds Henry's performance will determine how the workload is distributed, but Henry is the favorite for carries over Dion Lewis.

    Batting .270 with 5 HRs so far in AA is above average.

    I dont have a link but i rememver an interview with Abreu saying its hard readjusting to mlb pitching after the all star break and seeing all those easy pitches in the derby, if it takes some time to adjust back it could lead to a slump, which is why HR derby participants are can regress after the all star break. They will come out of it but by that time their excelleny pre all star pace has slowed dramatically.
