He is just one man. I would honestly be more fearful of the things that McNair can do. Henry would take the heat off of the QB though, so there may be a motive to the trade beyond Chris Brown getting injured to often. I am too lazy to check , but I wonder how many 1000 yard seasons Hentry has? I think that the Texans are going to contain him. IMHO

the titans lost 2 recievers and mcnair is injury prone beyond belief even though he plays through most. if we can stop the run at all we will have no problem beating them.

Yep, if McNair plays, I think any team should be worried. I would be more concerned with Chris Brown than Henry tho

I'm taking the "if Mcnair's healthy I'm not counting them out" approach. I've seen that guy burn us too many times. I just have a feeling they're not going to be as bad as everyone thinks. Are they going to the playoffs NO, but I still think they'll be some what respectable as long as Mcnair is in there.

Have yall seen Mcnair lately he looks like he's trimmed down a bit and really looks like he got in shape.

I think that Texans need to take the Titans seriously.

I don't see how we can knock their receivers when they're top two are better combined than our top two.

I love AJ and he's better than Bennett, but I'd take Calico over Bradford or Gaffney any day.

Brown and Henry could become a formidable mix, since Brown has a great knack for long runs and Henry is never fun to tackle.

Kinney is way more of a complete TE compared to anything we have.

Their line is better.

Mcnair is in the best shape of his life, therefore dangerous.

all this added up, plus a better Offensive Co-ordinator than our Palmer.....equals a better offense.

On the flip side...I their defense is where I think they'll really feel all the personel losses this year. They are quite thin at DE and CB.....but, if some of their young guys come through, they could beat us more than once this year.

All I'm saying is that the Texans better take them seriously or they could be in for a surprise. I don't think that the Texans can afford to play down to any team in the league yet, except maybe the 49ers.

I'm in the "Titans will be better than most think" camp. Henry is a very good pick up for them and they have some other solid folks. Do they have problems...you bet and they will need 1 to 2 more off seasons to pull it all back together IMO.

He ruhsed for 729 yds his rookie season in 13 gams and 12 starts. 1438 and 1356 the next 2 and 326 last year splitting time with McGahee and being injured. He started 5 games and played in 10 last year.

the combo of henry/brown gives the titans a legit running game...runblocking is always easier to do than pass protecting for a o-line...so yes we should be a little worried...i wouldn't worry as much about henry though as i would about other aspects of the game...you can fix a run defense by putting more guys in the box as long as the db's are ready for mcnair to air it out to these rookie receivers...their defense will be questionable at best...losing the key verterans they have will hurt them a lot on defense...but remember last years draft they drafted quality guys on that d-line so it's more about their db's stepping it up rather than their d-line

I think that's why they should have an experienced third receiver instead of a rookie. With the top two guys getting a lot of work, there's a better chance of one of them getting hurt. If Calico or Bennett goes down, then you're going to have teams focusing on the guy who's left and leaving the rookie to try to make plays.
