    SUMMARY: With Titans RB Chris Brown out with a toe problem, Travis Henry has gotten a lot ofwork this week. He and rookie LenDale White are expected to play lead the Titan running game tomorrow in Miami. Henry averaged 4.1 yards per carry last season against the Dolphins, and had two 100-yard games against them in 2002 with the Bills. "It is a mental thing for Travis and you can see the difference this week," Titans Coach Jeff Fisher said. "He is working hard and is highly motivated to contribute."

    It's a mental thing? Ah no... Henry's not the same RB he was in 2002, period. Prior to his injury, he was a bulldozer, a chains mover. Now, he's a 3 ypc RB. I want White to play, and play a lot. I want him to be in there as the starter soon. He'll take his hits, he's a rookie, this is the NFL, but that's what he needs, so he can adjust and become the stud he should become sooner rather than later

    i thought he was always a 3 YPC back. even in his pro bowl years... he just ran a whole lot.
    and be sides... hasn't he been saying he was "ready" going on 2 years now?
    i'm betting fisher sticks with him the whole game (save a series or 2 for white) the running game will be atrocious and he'll say after the game he ran hard/played good but the dline are monsters and we got behind too early so the running game couldnt be established. all the while keeping the most talented RB we have on the bench for another week ... this will continue throughout the season until about the 14th game whne fisher realizes it might actually be beneficial to play whit/ young a whole game.

    then we draft peterson next year not knowing whether lendale was anygood. and we trade away henry for a 6th... and lose brown to free agency.

    i'm feeling pretty pessimistic right now. maybe sunday will bring me a good enough buzz to turn it around

    Peterson sounds fine.

    If you want to trade Henry for a pick that's okay, too.

    But, I'm not real sure about letting CB walk away as a FA. Make sure to get at least another pick for him.

    If we're rebuilding (I prefer retooling), let's do it right.

    If looks like he's going to leave, that's fine.

    But, trade him.

    Now!!!

    This little piggie went to market,
    This little piggie stayed home,
    This little piggie had roast beef,
    This little piggie had none,
    And this little piggie cried, "Wee! Wee! Wee!"
    All the way home.

    Yes he does. What a backfield that would be. With a top 3 pick, we could nab a starter on the OL in the 2nd round...
