    I didn's say Henry sucked. I said the line sucked. Many saw that same thing. I did say Henry looked too heavy/slow, but still broke many tackles. Once he got into better shape and the line became better, he looked really good. No suprise at all to me.

    LW getting into better shape may help him too. I hope he has the motivation to.

    Personally I think LW's success at USC was a byproduct of the system there, and also helped by Reggie's success. Hope I am wrong and he can contribute a lot in he upcoming years.

    I think what happened was simply that Travis Henry played a lot better than anyone expected and gave the Titans no reason to give LenDale a shot, if Travis didn't have as good of a season as he did I think it's very likely that he comes in and has similar stats to other rookie RBs had this year

    LW is going to have to get serious about off-season fitness (like Henry did) or he'll never be a premiere back. Will he do it? Can Vince convince him?

    I don't know. I'll go out on a limb though and say that if he is not impressing everyone with a new work ethic in OTA's and show up to mini-camp in cut-muscle shape, he'll be an average back.

    His injury history also worries me.

    It's not like he limps off the field ever game like Brown, all his injuries have been minor and off the field "freak" accidents. I don't really consider the flu an injury either.

    We are nitpicking guys. Travis Henry became the #1 guy after the first few games and didn't fail to produce. LenDale White will likely get more carries next year and hopefully see more short yardage situations. I don't like the idea of my 2nd round RB sitting on the bench, especially since I am a statistic kind of guy, but it's only because we have a veteran overshadowing him.

    fact is, how can he be a bust? He wasn't a first round pick. He's a bust cuz he said he'd show them what they missed? Look, Henry took off right about when VY came in. If Henry is traded tomorrow and White is our featured back, I don't feel so bad about it. He showed splashes all year long. He looked very good @ Indy, and didn't look out of place when he was given a carry here and there. Hold off the wagons people...
