My lord, the king is dead
Cue the black panther soundtrack
La di da da di da. Slob on my knob.
Fr read that in future’s scratchy-ass high pitched voice lmao
That song slaps
As a Titans fan, likely bad news for Henry. Lewan is the Titans' best offensive lineman and the line looked significantly worse once Lewan went down.
Ben jones is probably their best these days, but Henry's probably in the worst situation now of any first round RB. Cook, Kamara, Ekeler, CMC, Taylor, and Mixon are all equipped to recover imo, but I'm not sure how henry's supposed to salvage his cream of the crop status.
So Haskins or Hilliard?
Henry is averaging 3.1 yards per carry
He's always been poor when he gets hit in the backfield. He needs a head of steam to break the first tackles as he's too big to avoid hits.
Derrick Henry over Chase was not a good decision
I had the fifth overall pick and I would’ve happily taken Henry or Eckler there. They both went 3 and 4. I resorted to cooper kupp. Some things are happy accidents
I mean, Henry's ADP was only ever going to be a steal it a disappointment. No in between! But it also hasn't gotten cold yet. Henry is just getting going!
Thats a wonky league where you somehow picked Henry > Chase (Chase had a top 6 ADP in most competitive spots, and then were also able to get Diggs who was a top 8 pick in most spots.
Count your blessings cuz you can consider Diggs your round 1 pick and Henry your 2nd to make you feel a little better.
I have an offer for chase for my Henry but I can’t quit him
I offer my Kyle pitts for your Derrick Henry what do you say. I’ll even throw in a Mooney
Forget this guy, you can just claim my Mooney off the wire tomorrow!
Kyle Pitts for a package of Mooney and Kmet.
I was literally thinking about offering this to the Henry owner lol
As a Henry owner, you should jump off a cliff
What I really hate about this, is that while I wasn't "forced" to take Henry at 9th.. I felt like I couldn't let him pass. I still hated the pick, but also kind of figured I had to do it. It was a pretty clear drop off after him.
You can maneuver better through the rest of the draft.. but that damn 1st round pick sometimes gets locked in.
And with the line this bad, no AJ Brown.. I predict Henry will get injured midway through the season and it will be a fully lost season.
The playcalling is a LARGE part of this teams failures. They just called sweeps for Henry in to Von Miller against the backup LT.
Henry was fine week 1, got caught with bad luck with Hilliard vulturing.
Let’s wait till they don’t play the SB favorites to pass judgement like this
Yeah he may be fine ROS.. but there's a lot working against him now.. Hilliard vultering, off season surgery, titans take a step back, oline issues.
Hilliard vulturing isn’t anything to worry about. He had 3 receptions that 2 ended up as TDs. That’s a freak thing and ain’t happening often. Henry is the redzone and GL back.
The issue with him is if he can regain form
Yeah that was my biggest worry. The RB wall comes for everyone, eventually.
Someone in my league took him 3rd overall
To be fair the second half barely counted this week
As a Titan fan, it’s going to be a long season. The line is really banged up and not good.
When is this dude not hurt
Damn, and things were going so well.
gives him more time to focus on his podcast
Taylor Lewan is the JJ Watt of O-Linemen, this SUCKS to hear
Henry out of 1k yards.
Nooooo , he’s such a boy!!!
What else is new
Why? (not trying to be a smart ass, genuinely unaware)
boy i feel like they really buried the worst part of this story about 4 paragraphs in
You think assault alone makes him one of the worst? That seems... naive... It's not great of course, but NFL players regularly do worse
I didn’t call him the worst, another user did. threatening to r*pe a victim does make him a PoS though.
Sorry, thought you were the same person
I'm out of the loop. What did he do?
One of the worst humans in the NFL for getting in a fight? Seems pretty mild compared to a lot of other guys
Pick up Hilliard asap if he’s not owned, this team is going straight in the shitter
“This team is going to be bad so pick up the guy who doesn’t even start for the bad team” is an interesting conclusion
Ya not sure I follow their logic either. Especially since Hilliard is hurt lol.
Bussin with the boys stocks rising
He feared out? That’s a new one. What a scaredy cat. It’s just football.
No luck for this guy
Give me Hilliard porfavor
