I am of the opinion that the presence of McGahee may actually improve Henry's numbers. Do you think A.Green would have had the year he had had he not had Davenport and Fisher backing him up? Because the running styles between Green and Davenport were so different, it made Green Bay's rushing attack nearly impossible to stop. I see that same sort of scenario unfolding in Buffalo where McGahee and Henry may confuse the hell out of defenses with their contrasting running styles. It will also improve their passing game immensely.

However, I don't think that you can put him in the top 10 due to the presence of McGahee and his injury history.


I have been grabbing him in the 2nd round a lot, too. The main concern I have about Henry is the fumbling. If he keeps that under control I think he has a great year. If he starts it up again then he's just asking the coaches to put McGahee in. But he seems like he loves a challenge and I suspect this to be his best year yet.

Hes no Tiki Barber in the fumble department although he has a habit of putting it on the carpet...

I don't think their running styles are different, I am comparing McGahee in College to Henry in the NFL, but they both can hit a hole hard and then have the shiftiness to make people miss in the open. The only difference is that McGahee is faster, bigger, and stronger than Henry, but hasn't played a down in the NFL and is getting over an injury. I can't wait to see McGahee in real games and if he is good Henry may lose touches. It could get ugly.

Also, the Henry fumbling problem basically cleared itself up last year and is a non-issue at this point. There is no way he is a Tiki Barber.

Speaking of Freaky Tiki Barber....Coughlin has publicly said he wants to get Dayne in better shape and see what he can do. Is anyone concerned about Barber's status this year. Is he clearly the man in Giant Land??

I think he'll put up decent yards since he's also a good receiver, but I won't be surprised when Dayne is stealing the TDs.
