How are Young and Henry splitting carries?

Postby Albatross » Tue Dec 11, 2007 10:36 am

They are both getting carries and it seems like Young is starting. Are they rotating series? Is Selvin getting two series to one? Has Selvin been getting goalline carries or are they bringing Henry in for the goaline carries (Henry has had 3 TDs the last two weeks)? If a Denver fan, or someone else could give some info on this I would appreciate it!

This is the $64 million question. I doubt anyone knows at this point, probably not even Shanny. I did read somewhere that Henry is ailing a bit more then Young.

I follow Denver pretty close, and all indications are the Henry is really banged up. The one report I read was that he came back sooner then some suggested. It's obvious if you watch the games that he has no burst right now.

Selvin Young-RB-Broncos Dec. 11 - 11:20 am et

Despite Selvin Young's 156-yard performance in Week 14, Broncos coach Mike Shanahan is not ready to call the rookie the Broncos featured back.

Shanahan may not want to name a flat out starter, but Young has in fact started the last two games and averaged 5.7 yards per carry on the season. Shanahan's mad scientist ways aside, Young is the Broncos back to play against the Texans on Thursday.

Monday interview with Shanny...

Is it just me, or does Shanny start smiling and appear to get a little excited when he starts talking about Young? ...and just appear a little depressed when Henry's name comes up?

I gotta believe Young is the man. Young is from Houston, right? +1

Thanks for all the posts. Has anyone watching the games noticed if Selvin is getting pulled at the goalline for Henry? I just figured somebody who has watched the games must notice some kind of a trend as to how they are used.

They begin alternating series' with Young starting and it eventually turns to Young staying in for mulitple drives. Henry does spell Young, and I have seen both get carries at the GL.

It's this simple start Young with confidence every week, because Henry is still obviously hurt. Shannihan likes to screw with all of your heads and will continue to do so. Young has been more successful in the second half of the year and there is no reason for him not to start.

This is my opinion of course and I know Shannahan is the equivalent to Darth Vader to most, but having seen both Henry(im a owner) and Young run in the games the last few weeks Young should be starting easily. I haven't seen Henry have a run over 6-7 yards if I remember correctly he has literally no burst. I really think he rushed himself back, he saw Young having success as well as Hall so he probably wanted to get back on the field to try and keep the starting job, but he's just not healthy. Didn'y Andre Johnson have the same injury? I think he was out much longer then Henry.

Henry has been getting 80%-90% of the goal line carries, Young has been getting 65% of the carries. But Henry has been beat up and when he is better I see Henry being the starter again. So I am going to avoid Denver RB's this week and as a Henry owner, hope he bounces back, or Young gets hurt, this thursday.

There will be a 10 day rest till week 16...which might make deciding even harder.
