    Man we haven't had a RB rush for a Benjamin since week 14 of the 2004 season.

    You do the math that was over a year ago, A year now what is wrong with that picture?

    Everything that use to define the Titans is no longer here a hard hitting defense that was stout from the line to secondary. A smash mouth running game to control the clock and wear down defenses. I realize we no longer have a smash mouth RB but that is no excuse for not having a RB hit 100.

    henry was suspended for a while, nash is unknown, payton limited snaps, o-line is awefull, brown is inconsistent, we don't control the clock at all anymore and our defence sucks, they cant hold leads late so we have to pass inorder to get the quick score

    That's preety much the scenario. I wanna see what Brown and Henry can do next year behind an improved OLine. If in the end either of the two, or worst both, show they can't get it done then we need to look for a replacement. I don't think Brown is going to be the long term answer. That will become apparent heading into the next couple of off-seasons.

    I want to see a game where we give Henry the chance to proove himself.

    Tomorrow he'll get that chance. He isn't quite 100% yet, but Brown has been mostly in and out of practice this week with a shoulder injury, how he got that - good question. This kid is always getting some minor ding and I'm getting tired of it.

    True, but you can tell it effects his game. I think he's just sucked it up and plays through them, which seems to be slowing him down.

    well he has long runs called back on holding penalties, most of which were TDs and/or woulda put him over 100 yards (and 1000 for the season)

    Funny, Brown has been less injured this year than Henry and performed better as well.. oh and he didn't get a 4 day suspension. Why would you want Henry to start over Brown??

    I agree, but some of those long runs were "because" of the holding penalties. Bottom line, we need better line play. We get that and the running game will follow.
