    Tannehill or Henry?

    Titans potentially have to choose which of the two to re-sign next year, although they can probably afford both.

    Seems most would go with Henry after the last few games worth of stats, but there could be a big market for Tannehill with lots of vet QBs up on their contracts.

    this is a joke, right?
    the ONLY way you don't sign Henry is if his demands are ridiculous...in which case it doesn't matter WHO you are
    gotta love 'referential' treatment

    Ummm.... Henry. Everyday and twice on Sunday. Tannehill has been solid and revitilized his career, but they replace him a lot easier than Henry.

    They will be probably able to afford both anyhow, so don't think will be an issue

    How did Henry do with Marcus at QB?

    Tannehill is the obvious no brainer for me here. Like mega obvious.

    You cannot win in this league without a quarterback. Quarterbacks are very hard to find. Running backs are a dime a dozen. Running backs do not age gracefully. Paying running backs top running back money is often crippling to the teams that do it.

    They should be able to sign both but if it's one or the other it's so, so obviously Tannehill.

    Who are the best RB's over the past half decade? Bell, Zeke, Gordon? Prior to that Peterson, McCoy? Is there a single Super Bowl appearance in there?

    The only times the rushing-leader RB has made it to the Superbowl:
    * Shaun Alexander: 2005
    * Terrell Davis: 1998
    * Emmitt Smith: 1992, 1993 and 1995


    Via ProFootballTalk, may be inaccurate

    I guess you could argue Lynch was a top 4-5ish RB the years the Seahawks went.

    Tannehill still the obvious choice here, IMO.

    For anyone wondering, the last time the QB who lead the league in passing also won the league championship was...

    George Blanda for the AFL in 1961

    Johnny Unitas for the NFL in 1959

    No question, Tannehill. Henry is having a great post season. He could even lead them to the SB and with the way heís playing could even win SB MVP. That doesnít mean to take a big bruising RB over a QB. Tannehill clearly needed a change of scenery and Tennessee has been a great fit for him. RBís have a short shelf life. Learn from the Cowboys and Rams, even if your RB is elite itís probably best not to pay him.

    Tough call.
    I'd like to say Henry because he is an absolute beast but with his running style how many good years does he realistically have left in him? I know he is a massive guy but that physicality will likely catch up to him soon.

    Case Keenum looked good for a year in Minnesota, too....and was younger than Tannehill.
    How has it worked out for teams having paid him?

    Ryan will get paid...by someone...no doubt. Projections are in the 3/75 range
    The Titans are currently projected to have over $45mil in cap space with the new cap around $200mil, so maybe it's a moot point

    What is NOT a moot point these days is....what DO you pay a guy like Henry?
    The Vikings have a similar issue....what DO you pay a guy like Cook?
    Saying you don't pay running backs because of their short shelf life doesn't take into account the fact that, despite the league being more of a passing league, championships are still generally won with a strong defense and a solid running game.

    Yeah. I've been saying the same thing on this forum for years about ponying up on rbs.

    Great rb's bring value and some dimensions to an offense, but it's easier to make it it win a sb with a great qb-defense combo vs. a great rb-defense combo.

    Not saying Tanny is great though, but I'd still take him over Henry in terms of how integral they are to a teams success. I think Henry got hot and peaked about now so he's getting all the love. Matchups also helped him look good in the loffs. Tannehill had a run where he flipped around the Titans season and playoff hopes. I think with their oline, a lot of rbs can have success imo, not to take away from Henry.
