re: Derrick Henry reached a top speed of 21.74 MPH on his 54-yard TD run
For as much shite this board is giving Leornard Fournette, this thread title drew me in.

Though he sucked tonight.. Leonard Fournette did have a 90 yard touchdown run last year with higher MPH at Pittsburgh..

quote:

the Jacksonville Jaguars' rookie running back reached a top speed of 22.05 mph during his 90-yard touchdown run against the Pittsburgh Steelers last Sunday. The NFL said it's the fastest any ball carrier has run this season

Not disputing that DH is a freak of nature, just odd because I feel like I saw this stat last year but with LF.

LOL, what is with this attitude? What’s wrong with giving credit were credit is due. Gah, I swear, some of you LSU fans want to be right so badly about Bama players not having prolific NFL careers, that you sound so friggin bitter. If Henry went to LSU you’d all be salivating.

Look I am a Titans fan. I wouldn't talk trash till Henry puts up a third of this production weekly. This game is an oasis in a desert of a season.

Lewis is the better back nine games outta ten. Outside this game Henry has been really disappionting this year. He tries to break every play for a TD instead of using his 250 pound frame to get downhill. He also runs upright.

Meant to say I had the same reaction the first time I saw it. I had to wait for the replay to pay closer attention to the lines and the distance to really get the right perspective on how fast he was moving.


This is what I meant, obviously I hurt a couple of bama fan’s feelings.

He runs the same way he did at Bama. I remember 2200 yards 28tds and a Heisman.

It's the height and long legs. They can genuinely screw up our perception of how fast a person is moving.


Same thing happens with Cam Newton(deceptively fast). They both tend to take a little longer to hit their top speed than smaller men. But the thing is once they are moving that fast, tackling them is very difficult. f=ma
