The right thing to do is not pay Henry

Recommended Posts

I think you have to bring Henry back.  At the same time, sometimes having a player like Henry makes the coaches run too much which takes away from opening up the passing game.

 

To be honest I'd give Tannehill a 3-4 year deal and franchise Henry.  That way if Henry starts to wear down you won't be paying him more than he should be paid.

It costs just $12.4M to tag him for one year. That is the sensible thing to do. 

 

Shaun Alexander had his biggest season in 2005. That was his 6th season and he turned 28 in August that year. After that he was done. Following that season the Seahawks signed him to a big 8 year deal. Big mistake. 

 

Eddie George had his last prime year in his 5th season at age 27. 

 

Given Henry's age and recent work load it is best to take this one season at a time. Tag him and see how it goes. If he is like most other backs he has at most 3 prime years left.

I’d agree if Tannehill could excel on his own consistently, outside of a dominant run game. But he can’t, so imo they’re a package deal.

Do we know that?  He was pretty damn good against New Orleans without Henry.

So was Mariota vs Atlanta. So?

Teams will definitely start focusing on stopping him so he'll likely have a step back statistically, but that doesn't change the impact he'll have on our offense. Next season Tannehill will have to really carry the team.

Yeah, like I said - consistently. There are times when he can carry the offense for a stretch but we must not fool ourselves into thinking Tannehill is more than he is.

All I'm saying is we really don't know how good Tannehill would be in a pass first offense.

 

From what I saw of him this season he has the traits that you want in a franchise QB.  No, he's not Mahomes.  Nobody is.  But you can absolutely win with Tannehill.

I'm not saying they should let Henry go, but there are probably ways that they can keep Tannehill, commit to a more pass heavy offense and if it doesn't work start over at the QB position in a couple of years.

The key to improvement for us is is to expand the pass game off the run game as a run first team, rather than to become a passing team. 

 

We need to be able to take advantage of passing opportunities when they present themselves rather than forcing the pass consistently. Yesterday, we failed to take advantage of passing opportunities.

Why does this franchise ALWAYS have to be a run first team.  WHY?

Again what the hell are you talking about? Tannehill took advantage of the limited opportunities he had yesterday. It was playcall and Vrabel's meatheadedness that failed to take advantage yesterday.
