I’m not sure why defensive players think it’s a good idea to disrespect Derrick Henry before a matchup, but you’d think they would stray away from giving him bulletin board materiel after what happened to Earl Thomas and the Baltimore Ravens.
Titans superstar Derrick Henry enters the AFC Championship having averaged a ridiculous 159.1 rushing yards per game on the ground over his last eight games, leading the Titans to a 7-1 record over that span.
Henry looks unstoppable when he lines up on the field, but according to Frank Clark, there really isn’t nothing difficult about stopping him.
The Chiefs Pro Bowl defensive end gave the Titans some bulletin-board material ahead of Sunday’s game with his assessment of Henry.
“(Henry is) not hard to hit,” Clark said, according to the NFL Network. “He’s just a big guy … honestly he should be running harder at his weight and his size. I don’t see no difficulty in tackling him.”
“…He’s just easy to me up front because I don’t look at any running back like they can’t be tackled. He’s not one of the best guys at breaking tackles to me honestly. He’s just a big body, and when people look at him, they’re scared to tackle him or they look at him and they’re scared to play aggressive. I think I’m the aggressor. I know I am.”
Henry rushed for 195 yards in that game.
