Brown-Henry

Postby tds04 » Sun Jul 31, 2005 7:10 am

I don't think there will be a competition for the starting job. It is Brown's job to lose, but Henry will definitely see significant action, perhaps 10-15 touches a game. Both of these guys are injury prone, Brown more so, so splitting time makes sense. I think Henry is a little less fragile so I would draft him over Brown. At least Henry has had a year of playing injury free with the Bills. The Titans ground game does not have a lot of upside overall. The team is in a rebuilding mode and the defense is a sieve. Mcnair and Volek will have to air it out quite a bit to keep the Titans competitive.

i think i've read where henry will get the goal carries and between the tackles, whereas brown is the third down back. i'd rather have henry.

Actually, the Titans weak D increases the value of Brown/Henry.
The O line is solid, and Fisher will want to use the running game
to control the clock, and keep the D off the field. If I had to choose
between the 2, I'd go with Henry, I would expect him to get the
goal line carries. Brown will get his carries and yards because he
can break a long run. BTW, his "upright" running style is not the
reason he is "injury prone". Turf toe and shoulder contusion were
not caused by his running style.

Exactly!

However, turf toe (even though it sounds like a wuss injury) is a definite problem to be concerned about. It can be a very chronic and debilitating injury. Correct me if I'm wrong, but didn't he decline surgery on it in the offseason? Chances are that he will recover fine from it, but it could rear it's ugly head again.

I'm pretty sure it'll end up RBBC favoring Travis Henry, but both guys will split playing time depending on the play. However, if Chris Brown ends up on the sidelines, it's all Travis Henry from there.

i agree with everyone here..it will be RBBC......Brown can break them, Henry can't...but Henry smells blood more the closer he gets to the endzone.

I think that as long as Brown can stay healthy, which may not be long, he'll be the top RB. The man is too talented. Henry will be a great change of pace RB due to his gritty running style, but it would be hard to ignore Brown's ability to turn any play into a big gain.

Brown will start the year as # 1 on the DC... but by midseason Henry will be getting the majority...

But like Cleveland (Suggs/Droughns)... It may only be 3-5 carries that one guy edges out the other each week.

I can see a lot of dual back sets.

RBBC..... I don't see either beating out the other barring injury. Do a search in here and read fishers comments that were posted in the last thread.
