Add a running back who is good at football
I have done a 180 on Derrick Henry since this time last year. I believe that you can make him a weapon in your offense if you can find a way to scheme him some touches in the open field.
The biggest problem is that he has hands worse than bricks dipped in Crisco. I mean, the man just can’t catch a football consistently to save his life.
That means that every time he is on the field the defense just doesn’t even acknowledge him as a factor. Last night he had a wide open screen for a huge gain early in the game and he just missed the catch.
The “receiving back” behind him is Dion Lewis and I have talked enough about how he completely kills offensive drives.
Whether it means trading for Melvin Gordon (if the Chargers are willing to talk about a mid-round pick) or another RB, or signing someone in free agency this train wreck has to stop.
Ideally the Titans can bring in another running back who can run and catch, but barring that they just need to find someone who can run the ball better. At least that would give them someone who could make plays somehow when on the field and it might prevent the all out blitzes they get.
