Peter King: Bettis Nor Campbell Ever Had a Playoff Game Like Henry

I would say at this point - at least since 1970 -  the Titans have the best collection of top RBs of any franchise in the NFL.

Then there's the 80s-90s collection of Rozier, Highsmith, White and Brown (for that one season at least).

He glides into tacklers. They don’t tackle him he tackles them it’s unbelievable how big he is, how fast he is. Truly remarkable how he turned his season and self around last year late December.

From Peter King.  Good read.

"What’s the most trusted truism in football? My vote goes to: Bill Belichick can take away the best thing any team does. He did it with Marshall Faulk in the Super Bowl 18 years ago, did it a few times with Marvin (Invisible Against the Patriots) Harrison, and did it last year by holding Rams running backs to 57 yards in the Super Bowl. But he couldn’t do it Saturday night. Derrick Henry ate his lunch."

 

I thought the poison he picked was Henry.  He was determined not to get lit up with the PA.  I think he knew they couldn't count on outscoring the Titans if they tried to stop Henry because Henry was going to get his anyway.  What he failed to realize was just how effect the Titans could be running Henry.  Henry ran entire the field alone from the Titans 25 to a TD.  Over and over, in a MF face.  We have seen him do that several times.

 

Belichick basically shut down the pass.  That how afraid he was of TH and AJB, with all the other weapons we have for RT.  Brady/Patriots got worse as the season progressed.  Finally they stopped winning of reputation.  Miami helped us a lot.  If Miami can beat them, they have a lot of weaknesses.  

 

King points out all the players NE missed on, including AJB and Humphries.

The reality is that he knew that stopping the explosive plays and forcing the Titans to drive the field would keep the score down and give them a chance.  Explosive plays actually were in favor of NE (8 to 5).  It largely worked as the game really came down to red zone efficiency.  Titans were a perfect 2/2 and the Pats were 1/3. 

 

Vrabel and Pees will take the same approach this weekend against the Ravens.  They live offensively on explosive plays from Jackson (run or pass).  Force them to drive the field and win some 3rd down and RZ trips and the Titans can win this.

You are right.  We just need more than 14 points this week.  It's going to be interesting seeing how they slow down Baltimore.

So many idiots just do not get it 

TBF if they aren’t a fan of this team it’s understandable they might not have known.

 

Im sure there is a lot of shit we miss on other teams.

He started the game  attempting to stop explosive plays but they quickly switched to that 6 down linemen front with 7-8 in the box nearly every play.... as what Romo kept calling "that superbowl defense"

 

They played 2 High but loaded the line up with everyone else. 

 

He tried to do both but pretty much put most of the focus on stopping henry in the second half... and we didnt care. We still ran him. 

 

Looked like Vrabes guessed we could pop 1 big play and that would be enough... but we didnt.. and it didnt matter.
