No, he averaged 120 yards per game in an offensive system designed to run him. The entire offense went through him. You honestly think of LSU was pass happy back then that he would have MORE yards? Not even close.

He's Richardson. We all know it, it just is the end of the world for LSU fans to admit because you trolled Bama fans for YEARS about Richardson flaming out in the NFL.

The fact that you brag that you are allowed access to other teams boards is insane to me. Shows your immaturity again. I could not FATHOM bragging about that.

But you're the kind of guy to brag about how much you bench press so it's not just terribly surprising. You call one of my posts "fricking gay" and you brag about how much you can bench press on the internet.

And you have the nerve to talk about someone else's intelligence

I know EXACTLY what kind of "bro" you are.

No. He does nothing better than Henry other than accelerate. Henry is equal or better at every single thing you would want in a RB.

Didn't stop Barry, Bo, or Herschel from winning a heisman.. Sucking against similar opponents cost him






His offensive coordinator and head coach cost him the Heisman by not giving the kid a prayer when it came to putting someone in the position to win. And he still averaged 120 yards a game. Like I've said 10 times in this thread, everyone knows Fournette is a better back than Henry. Every coach, every GM, every DC, everybody. And that's what this thread is about.

Leonard Fournette is better than Derrick Henry. Henry has all the accolades and won the Heisman over Fournette.

That system was designed to showcase a RB and built to rack up yards against defenses like Eastern Michigan and Texas Tech, the two rushing defenses that were last statistically in all of college football. That was an offense built for a RB to inflate his numbers

So get out of here with the offense slowed Fournette down. Now I agree that I wasn’t a good offense to beat good teams, but it was great offense to runner over weak teams with inferior front 7’s.

Pass happy? No. A living SHRED of a threat to pass the ball? God yes.

Not to win games with, but it was a good one to feature a supposed generation RB in.

What exactly do you base this shite on? I bet you think Lebron better than MJ too.

re: Can we all admit that Fournette is overrated?
He's clearly very talented. He just seems to have some sort of weird mental block sometimes that turns him completely pedestrian against certain defenses or in certain situation. No idea why or how to fix it, but if I could figure out either of those, I'd be coaching in the NFL, not typing amateur psychiatric diagnoses on a message board.

It doesn't help that he was very advanced physically entering college. Much like Trent Richardson, his move to the NFL meant he was no longer the best or strongest athlete on the field, so on the occasions when his vision failed, he couldn't turn to his physicality to compensate anymore.

You just said it was a good offense to run against bad defenses but it wasn't a good offense to run against good defenses. Fournette would get the ball have multiple defenders in his face INSTANTLY. And averaged 120 yards a game through his entire collegiate career. With THAT offense? If we could even KINDA pass the ball to open up the offense and keep the defense honest he has an even better career.

It was actually about Fournette being overrated, which he is, but that didn’t sit well with you so you have argued with everyone for 6 or 7 pages now. Sorry for your hurt feelings about this

MJ better scorer. Lebron better all around player. Fact. Lebron will pass MJ in every recordable on court stat. MJ had the best basketball coach in NBA history coaching him along for 99% of his career.

If the game was on the line give me MJ all day. MJ had more heart, grit, and passion. Lebron in the playoffs is a goddamn miracle to watch though, too.

And yet, you were the first one to mention Derrick Henry's name. Imagine that?

It only happened against Bama. That's tall end all, be all measuring stick for how good Fournette is. He didn't have a prayer in that game with the offense we ran. The Bama front 8 would just absolutely blow up our offensive line and Fournette didnt have a chance. I just dont know what else he could have done.

Edit: oh yeah, you're the first person to mention Henry in this thread, and then you followed it up with ANOTHER post about Henry without anyone mentioning his name after you said it the first time.

Yeah.. I should be the one to be embarrassed in this thread

You literally implied I made the thread a LF vs Henry argument when you're the single person responsible for it
