are you serious? Brown led ALL RUNNING BACKS in yards per carry last year. He was very good when he was healthy. I think Henry is a very good running back, but to say Brown was a "fallout player" is rediculous. Tennessee has been wanting to start Brown for the last 2 years. The only real knock on him (and it's a big one) is his health.

I understand that Brown led all starting RBs in ypc. And in no way did I allude to him as being a less than adequate RB. Note the rest of the paragraph where I also said Brown was very good when healthy. That is not the argument here. When I say he was the team's fallout, I mean they didn't have many more offensive weapons. When you focus an offense around one guy (as in the case of LT, Portis, Jamal, etc.), they have more opportunities to succeed. This doesn't mean they are worse RBs than under normal conditions, it simply means they have more opportunities, and therefore better stats. When I look at Brown and Henry I come to one conclusion: Given the same amount of carries, in the same system, with the same offensive cast, Henry would be the better RB. With Taylor, there is no argument, Henry would be a backup.

Taylor is still in his twenties, even if it be later twenties. People somettimes don't realize that he's still under thirty ;-)

You feel me Wade-O?


these teams aren't going to trade a 3rd round pick and give henry a big contract to be a backup.



You might be right with regards to Tennessee, but Taylor is aging fast.... I could very easily see Jacksonville giving Henry a big contract to back-up Henry for a year, with an eye on replacing him in '06....


Spot on Plindsey. And with Freddy, it's not the age, it's the mileage and the toll it's taken on him. I've seen Del Rio say several times that a RB the caliber of Henry for a 3rd pick is good value.
