    Henry is a beast of a running back not only with his power but his speed. By far he is one of the greatest threats at running back in the nfl right now imo.

    With that said, WOW the hit Spillane let out on him at the goal line. You can tell he gave everything he had on that one, and to probably the best goal line back in the league now.

    Just a shout out of respect to him. He's filled in nicely for Bush

    Hopefully he didn’t injure himself seriously. We need him at 100% next game.

    That was an incredible text book goal line tackle. Actually could have been the game saver. Really don't think Bush makes that stop as I've noticed he usually tries to throw the shoulder tackle instead of squaring up the runner and wrapping up.

    My heart dropped when he walked off field. Injuries take the wind out of fans.

    Great hit for certain. However, Robert's resolve and aggression is what caught my eye in that sequence. No fear of being the aggressor and no hesitation the same. Only one way to stop Derrick Henry and Robert Spillane knew what was needed.

    He delivered and in a big way.. Glad to see that he definitely held his own against Tennessee. That said, I imagine we will see more Dime Defense and UG3 against Baltimore. Mark Andrews is a problem but thankfully not an issue.

    Great form tackle and how it's suppose to be done. He never hesitated with that tackle and it had to hurt. Hope he's okay after that hit.

    That hit will live with me forever. It was one of the biggest goal line collisions I've ever seen. The same way Bettis running over Urlacher will stick with me, this hit will stick with me forever. I may one day have to google the name of Spillane to remember who laid the hit, but I will never forget the actual hit.

    There's no shortage of big hits on WR's, but off the top of my head, I can't think of a bigger hit involving 2 big bulls like that. Both guys may not have been at full speed, but they weren't far off and they hit head on. Spillane could have went low, but he took that load head on. A lot of DL in the league wouldn't have been willing to do that.
