    Re: Henderson looking to hit stride

    EJ has looked like he took a step back with his speed and aggresivness,
    ie: so called splash plays, but we've known for some time now, he's been playing a little nicked up. Hopefully, he will continue to get healthier and peak out around playoff time.
    That would be sweat, and I smell it happening.
    He is so much better when he's playing healthy it's not funny...


    I LOVE THE SMELL OF VICTORY IN THE MORNING AIR.

    Maybe they will plug Jasper in there for a game or two and give EJ a couple of weeks off prior to the playoffs.

    I wouldn't want to go that far Marrdro, no where near a couple games off.....I'm thinking more like 5 to 6 plays a game and if holding a dominate lead in the fourth quarter, give some time off there.
    Hell, some of our guys looked a little rusty after coming back from this past buy.....I've seen the big breaks given to others just before playoffs, and seen it backfire on the team....ALA Colts some 5 or 6 years ago I believe it was...







    Play um, but play um smartly....

    I hear ya and thats a good point to ponder, however, I think in some instances its kindof dependant on the player on how well he would/could do after a layoff.

    EJ, as with Whinny, JA, K-will, Phat Pat, Ray, maybe Chad and Leber, I think could take a couple games off, come back and play the last one or two and be ready to go again.
