Tracking Derrick Henry‘s chase for greatness.
Derrick Henry is simply one of the most devastating forces in all of the NFL.
Are there some deficiencies in his game? Sure, but everyone has deficiencies.
Henry isn’t a great receiver or blocker, but Mahomes isn’t as fast as Lamar Jackson, and Aaron Donald isn’t…ok well maybe Donald doesn’t have any deficiencies.
But no one in the NFL runs the ball as well as Derrick Henry. No one.
And this has been obvious for the last two years (Our Brady Akins even thought that this year would be legendary for Henry before the season), but it didn’t really click until a few weeks ago that Henry was actually on pace for a historic season if you knew what you were looking for.
Derrick Henry is on pace for 2,000 yards and it is something that we at Titan Sized have been focused on since before the first Indianapolis Colts game.
Let’s look at why the last three weeks were huge in this chase and what he needs to do going forward.
