Those Criticizing Derrick Henry Need to Point Elsewhere Too Navy Kenny Vaccaro Jersey , for Now Based on headline alone, Iíd bet some readers are already headed to the comment section to disagreeably pound their fists on the MCM round table and bemoan how much of a disappointment Derrick Henry has been through four games.Henry has done next to nothing statistically (on plays that count at least) and Matt LaFleur is seemingly wasting downs the majority of the time he calls for the ball to go to 22.The problem is, Henry isnít alone in his struggles on the ground and, taking an objective view, I recommend Titans fans hit pause on their ire towards the former Heisman-winning RB.In no way is this examination intended to praise Henry.It is simply advocating for patience and for the current umbrella of blame to be opened wider.This team is in a great spot at 3-1, the defense has been stout overall, and the passing game finally showed signs of life this past Sunday.The run game is the one phase which is not trending in the right direction under this new staff and Iím sure everyone directly involved recognizes it as a weak link in need of strengthening.First thingís first, here are some unbiased statistics to factor in.Iíve listed each of the Titansí first four opponentsí yards per carry allowed against their other three opponents (i.e. I excluded the Titans to avoid overlap), with one small adjustment.To better filter out anomaly plays, I omitted the 2 longest and 2 shortest runs against each defense.Hereís what I wound up with:Miami DolphinsDiscarded Runs-5 yards-4 yards22 yards23 yardsAdjusted Total77 attempts279 yards3.62 ypcHouston TexansDiscarded Runs-5 yards-3 yards15 yards24 yardsAdjusted Total62 attempts221 yards3.56 ypcJacksonville JaguarsDiscarded Runs-4 yards-3 yards15 yards68 yardsAdjusted Total49 attempts130 yards2.65 ypcPhiladelphia EaglesDiscarded Runs-6-31420Adjusted Total44 attempts111 yards2.52 ypcNext, I tallied both Derrick Henryís and Dion Lewisí yards per carry against each opponent to date, after excluding any runs that would have been discarded from the previously calculated defensive totals had the Titans been included.For instance, against the Eagles I excluded both a -4 yard run and a 14 yard run from Derrick Henryís average, because both fell on or outside of the parameters set within the first section.This way, the backs did not receive credit for runs that wouldn't have factored into the defensive totals.Derrick HenryAdjusted Totals:Dolphins: 2.6 ypcTexans: 3.47 ypc (discarded a -3 yard run)Jaguars: 3.53 ypc (discarded a -3 yard run)Eagles: 2.33 ypc (discarded a -4 yard run and a 14 yard run)Dion LewisAdjusted Totals:Dolphins: 3.86 ypc (discarded a -5 yard run and a 26 yard run)Texans: 3.46 ypc (discarded a -3 yard run)Jaguars: 3.63 ypc (discarded a -3 yard run)Eagles: 0 ypcAt first glance, Lewis appears to have been the more consistent back.I realize it runs contrary to the basis of this analysis to bring up Henryís called-back 60-yard run in Miami (which would have been discarded even if it had counted), but I think itís fair to at least mention it in the context of the gap between Henry and Lewis in week one.Going into that game, Lewis was viewed as a better stylistic match-up against the Dolphins defensive front.Especially when omitting outlier runs, one could have predicted the gap in efficiency in that contest.Outside of that game, though, the two have been right on par with one another.Both narrowly under-performed vs. the average against Houston and outperformed the average against Jacksonville.Lewis only received 4 carries against the Eagles (compared to Henryís 8) and he may have brought up his average slightly if given a couple more opportunities.Very few backs, if any, are going to find consistent success against Philadelphia.Not factoring in their current season stats, Henry and Lewis have both achieved high yards per carry historically.During his first two pro seasons, Henry averaged 4.3 ypc (not adjusted in the same manner as above).Over the five seasons prior to 2018, Lewis earned 4.8 ypc (again, non-adjusted).I have no beef with anyone who suggests that Dion Lewis is a better pro running back than Derrick Henry.Lewis certainly offers more as a receiver.Henry may develop into a better pass blocker as his career elapses Youth Jonnu Smith Jersey , but right now Lewis is more reliable in that facet too.As runners, theyíve both been successful.Itís important to recognize the reality of their respective ďstylesĒ, however.To make a baseball analogy, Henry is like a designated hitter who bats for power, not average.Lewis is like a shortstopóheís a more complete player who does a little bit of everything at the plate but isnít going to go yard as often.To continue with the analogy, the pitchers theyíve facedóthe opposing run defensesóhave played a significant role in a shared lack of success.I also donít think the other members of the line-upóthe Titans OLóhave given either many chances to knock in RBIs or advance runners.Getting back to a real sport, I think itís reasonable to allow some more time for the offensive line to gel both as a unit and within this new blocking scheme.Matt LaFleur is still learning when and how he can get the most out of each back.There will be games for both in which they prove more valuable than the other.Strictly in terms of run plays, my proverbial scorecard would award Jacksonville and Philadelphia to Henry, Miami to Lewis, and call Houston a draw (Welcome to the wide world of cross-sports analogies!)According to Football Outsidersí Rush Defense DVOA, the Titans have played the 6th, 3rd, 7th, and 2nd highest-rated run defenses in the league through four games.In the next quarter of the season, theyíll face the (current) 14th, 9th, 25th, and 13th highest-rated run defenses.
We should get a more balanced sample with which to evaluate Henry, Lewis, the OL, and LaFleurís run-play selection.Hereís hoping each can improve enough to make the ground game an asset for the Titans down the stretch. Rishard Matthews didn't like his diminished role in Tennessee's new offense, so the wide receiver gambled on himself.He asked to be traded or released 鈥?and the Titans cut him. Matthews then waited for a team to sign him.It took four weeks to find another job. Now he's a member of the New York Jets , eager to help his new squad in any way he can."I fully understand the position I'm in," Matthews said. "I put myself in this position. I expressed that as well. I played special teams to make it in this league. I don't mind doing that, I don't mind taking reps off the guys throughout the week so they could be fresh for the game. Whatever I've got to do to get their trust and contribute, I'm all for it."The 29-year-old Matthews comes to the Jets to provide a potentially big boost to a receiving group that needs some help.Quincy Enunwa will miss his second game in a row with a sprained ankle that could keep him out a few more weeks.Robby Anderson hasn't practiced this week, also because of an ankle injury that coach Todd Bowles described as "kind of in between" a high and low sprain. Terrelle Pryor was released last Saturday with a groin injury.That leaves only veterans Jermaine Kearse and Andre Roberts, who's New York's primary returner Navy Kamalei Correa Jersey , along with youngsters Charone Peake and Deontay Burnett."No. 1, he's a veteran," offensive coordinator Jeremy Bates said of Matthews. "He really likes the game. He's been here studying his tail off, and he's got great size, got great length, he's been productive in the league and he just understands the professionalism of the sport."Matthews signed a one-year contract extension with the Titans in August after leading them with 1,740 yards receiving and 13 touchdowns combined over the past two seasons.An undisclosed injury caused him to miss offseason workouts, minicamp and the Titans' first three preseason games. He was activated from the physically unable to perform list before the regular season, but never found a consistent role in new coordinator Matt LaFleur's offense. He had just three catches for 11 yards in three games before Tennessee released him when it couldn't deal him."That's just a situation that's in my past now," Matthews said. "It is what it is. That situation happened and I wish nothing but the best for those guys."Matthews had workouts with the Jets, Browns and Cardinals in the weeks after he was released, but wasn't immediately signed. He said in an interview that he thought he probably wouldn't be signed by anyone this season."I wouldn't say surprised," Matthews said of joining the Jets. "I guess I was just letting my feelings out at that given moment. Yeah, that was last week and I'm happy to be here and I'm just trying to learn as much as I can so I can contribute right away."Matthews has been putting in extra work on the field with Sam Darnold, trying to quickly build a bit of a rapport with the rookie quarterback.There are some familiar faces for Matthews in New York. He and Kearse were roommates at the NFL combine in Indianapolis in 2012 鈥?Matthews was a seventh-rounder by Miami; Kearse went undrafted before signing with Seattle.Jets linebacker Avery Williamson played with Matthews for two years in Tennessee, and is happy to have the receiver on his side."He had a lot of great catches, man," Williamson said. "You put the ball in his area, he's going to go up and get it. I'm definitely glad to have him out here. Once he gets back and used to playing again and continues to learn the system, I feel he's going to be a great asset for us. I mean, he's a tough guy. I've seen him make some catches where he takes some tough hits and he holds onto the ball well."Matthews has 228 catches for 3,147 yards and 21 touchdowns in six-plus seasons. With the Jets so thin at receiver, there's a good chance Darnold could be looking for Matthews plenty in Chicago on Sunday."I didn't know much before he came here, but I know that he is a great player," Darnold said. "I know that we can kind of fit him everywhere. We can kind of put him in different spots and he's able to so far just in the first days. He's learning the offense like crazy."NOTES: C Spencer Long missed his second straight day of practice with knee and finger injuries. If he can't play Sunday, Jonnothan Harrison or Dakota Dozier would start in his place. ... CB Trumaine Johnson (quadriceps) remains sidelined. ... CB Morris Claiborne (shoulder/foot) and LT Kelvin Beachum (back) were limited after sitting out Wednesday. ... Also limited were: S Marcus Maye (broken thumb), CB Buster Skrine (concussion) and LB Kevin Pierre-Louis (foot). ... Darron Lee was a full participant after missing practice with an illness.
