I'm proud that my only critique was that he was a luxury pick...which I remember even saying to my friends while watching the draft. Lol...could've been worse

 

there were some great posters there that I haven't seen on the new forum... @Chocolateman78 where you at?!

Yea, seriously, what happened @TheDeeeeej ? I used to post in here under a different name I wonder if I could find it.

Henry had a helluva season 

Not going to get on him for today’s loss 

I just don’t get why we don’t attack weaknesses of defenses 

The Ravens are daring us to throw and Arthur Smith decided to pound Henry into 8 and 9 man fronts 

Henry’s a great back hes trending to being the best in the franchise 

But when defenses sell out to stop him the play calling an pass catchers have to take advantage to push them back a bit to give Henry a chance

OL was terrible today but...man....

Yeah today isn't going to ruin the season and what he means to the team.
I don't think we helped him out much with play calls either.
We didn't try to get the edge too much. 
Playcalls were bad. 
Line was bad.
He didn't have it today either.

But still he is King. 
9 times of 10 he gets it done. Today he didnt/

He is the KING.

the KING, imo, didn’t leave it all out on the field today. This is gonna sound crazy, but I think he left maybe 20-25 yards on the field today that, with all the short yardage situations we found ourselves in, may have made the difference. He didn’t need 150 yards today. A hard, bruising 80 could’ve been huge.

As a fan, I probably expect too much out of individual players. But he was Heat Lebron versus Dallas when he needed to be Cleveland Game 7 LBJ beating Golden State

because that’s what the KING does. Lay it all out on the line in the playoffs

He has flaws. This is not something new, but if you get a push and touch him before he gets going he can look very easy to take down. He doesn’t have that Eddie like tenaciousness to get those little yards to make those small differences in the game. You are a 100 percent right. He didn’t need to go off. He just needed to get those short yardages to sustain drives and break the will of the d. And to be honest it didn’t seem like the staff trusted him on those short yardage situation because our line was getting handled on run downs.
