If i were Vrabel, I'd run Henry 30 times a game all the way to a championship.
That hit on Landry totally got in his head

Henry is the closest to him though.
Just an FYI .. Jacobs is..

Thatís incredible

Looks like he has a dookie hanging off the back of his head, which Jacobs didnít.
Henry is a better RB

Brandon was better at dishing out pain and was often injured because of it.

But Henry is a bit niftier between the tackles and finding the opening.

think Henry has a short shelf life as Jacobs? This has gotta be his peak. Late bloomer too..

Yeah, thatís pretty bad. Come on man.
Henry has better balance and recovers

Amazing that Derrick Henry was considered "soft" just as of  
Leg of Theismann : 1/11/2020 11:54 pm : link
like middle of last season. Apparently Eddie George got in his face and literally said "dude you are 6'4" 250 and you're SOFT!" Henry apparently took that to heart and started running more North/South and not being afraid to *initiate* contact with would-be tacklers. That was just prior to the famous 99 yard run last year where he stiff-armed like 9 people and then at the end of the run was basically looking for more people to stiff-arm lol. Then this year he wins the rushing title and here he is literally carrying this team to the super bowl potentially. Awesome story. And Tannehill's story is similarly inspiring.

When and where did Jacobs "run a 4.4?"

In your back yard with you timing him?

IIRC he ran a 4.63 at the combine...

I'm gonna check.
Jacobs ran 4.56 at the combine.  
BlueLou'sBack : 1/12/2020 1:31 am : link
At 6'4.5" and 267#.

Still Impressive
Henry is quicker and  
section125 : 1/12/2020 7:11 am : link
has better balance. Jacobs was physically more imposing. It also looks like Henry is smaller in the legs by a large margin.

Nobody wants to be hit by either one of them. So Henry absolutely reminds me of Jacobs.

Iím always amazed how players with big hair or some of these crazy hair styles get it to fit in the helmet and how does the helmet fit properly. You would think the league would have some kind of guidelines in place with the emphasis on concussions the past few years
Henry has better wheels and wiggle  
djm : 1/12/2020 10:24 am : link
More athletic but the two are similar. Separated by 2 rounds in the draft for good reason. Both showed and proved in their respective careers that they should have been drafted higher. Jacobs could and should have been a second rounder while Henry could and should have gone in round 1.

We need to get Barkley to Henryís place where heís running downhill all day long. We will win.
Shouldnít say Henry has better speed  
djm : 1/12/2020 10:25 am : link
But heís got better burst.

trueblueinpw : 1/12/2020 12:18 pm : link
Loved him! Was actually thinking about him last night when Henry got caught from behind on that long run he had. I think Big Jake is in the end zone there.
For some reason I see a little of OJ Anderson ...  
Spider56 : 1/12/2020 1:25 pm : link
He started smaller at 6í2Ē, 220 but added some pounds as a Giant ... Remember him planting Kelso in the SB ?

I have never once commented on this topic but I find that I must...
In what way is his comment about his dislike for how he wears his hair racist? I find it ludicrous to conflate inconsiderate remarks about a man's aesthetic propensities with hatred for persons of other skin tones. Was it unkind? I would say so (though much worse is said here on a daily basis). Was it racist? It is unreasonable to suggest so. Not only that, it minimizes the malignancy of true racism when you bandy about words so haphazardly. I am sorry if I upset anyone with this comment but I felt a compulsion to do so given the weight of the matter.

I think it got in his head more because he was already a massive juicer and still got trucked!!

After that, he's like, "I'm as big as I can be and I still got plowed over"!!

Agree with this. So Henry has a piece of shit hanging out of the back of his helmet. Why is mentioning that a racist comment.

If anything those who suggest it is racist are the ones drawing the correlation from shitty hair tail to a particular race. THAT suggestion is in itself racist.

Now, to the original question and purpose of the post, here are my thoughts...

Jacobs hit a few people hard and it made some highlight videos. However, I think Henry is more physical on every play. We saw too many plays with Jacobs where he ran as if he was 100bls lighter. Not hitting the hole hard (dancing) on 3rd and short for example.
Love me  
Darth Paul : 1/19/2020 7:22 am : link
some Jacobs
Henry had a nice run in these playoffs.  
Darth Paul : 1/19/2020 6:24 pm : link
I still take Jacobs because he brought the element, the team was missing in our run.
