    Don't want to trade him but I would like to see his snaps reduced. He was a different back the second half of the season, so less snaps would benefit him. I'd say not this upcoming season but 2018 he should\will be the 2nd string RB.

    Derrick Henry is our best player, the sooner everyone realizes this or at least our head coach the better off this team will be, period!

    The Titans need two quality RBs in order to be competitive but Murray had the best season of any Titans RB since CJ in '10.

    Trading him would be stooooopid.

    Based on what. Needs to learn to stay in bounds before he is considered our best player.

    I totally agree it's good if not great to have two good backs but I don't think it's good for the team if the better back is the backup, that hurts the team. As far as trading him it would only be stupid if we didn't get something of equal value or better. Bottom line is Henry needs to start and Mularkey ain't gonna let that happen so I'm going to say it now, unless JROB kills it with the two first round picks(which I doubt), next year will be a rude awakening to the Mularkey experiment. To add on those draft picks as well, we need two "skill" players that can immediately start for me to say JROB Killed it so I'll keep my fingers crossed.

    What evidence do you have Henry was/is better?

    I don't agree with the ratio between the two but there's no doubt in my mind that Murray was the better RB.

    That's the issue. I don't trade Murray for anything less than a second-round pick and I don't see anyone feeling his value is as much as what it is for the Titans because of their scheme.

    I was not excited when we traded for him because I thought he was injury prone and likely near done. He's gone above and beyond, IMO, and is exactly the kind of player Robinson says he wants on this team.

    So for one play that was actually called incorrectly (he was pushed backwards and went out-clock should keep running on forward progress) you base your judgement on that? Quite the analyst.

    But not the best at other things like blocking and catching out of the backfield, although he caught a nice one in the Houston game. Until he can do this, and step out of tackles (goes down too easy) DM will get the bulk of playing time. When he's healthy he's actually very good.
