Everybody: You can’t pay a running back. They fall off after having “x amount” of carries.
This Derrick Henry workout

So, yeah, if you were worried about what Derrick Henry will do after back-to-back rushing titles, I think it’s safe to say he isn’t satisfied with what he has accomplished just yet. It’s a shame Isaiah Wilson couldn’t last long enough in the building for some of this to rub off on him.
Now I want everyone reading this to go out in your garage and attempt to do it.*
Henry hasn’t punched his ticket to Canton just yet, but he should be a first-ballot no-doubter if he is able to lead the NFL in rushing for a third straight season – especially in today’s league when there are so many running backs that are just flashes in the pan.
*Not really because you will definitely fall on your face and probably break multiple bones.
