Henry came in before halftime so he could play some with the 1st team O line. They haven't had a legit runner since Chris Johnson's 2nd year, now they have 2. Both Henry and Murray can catch as well, and have similar running styles. The fullback Fowler was Henry's blocker when they were both at Alabama, so they have some chemistry. Mariota is very good at misdirection, and they all seem on the same page.
The biggest surprise so far has been #19 Tajae Sharpe. He was 4th or 5th round and is going to be the #1 WR. They got 2 good vets in Harry Douglas and now Andre Johnson. Rishard Matthews they got from the Dolphins looks OK. Kendall Wright could have a better year, but he keeps getting hamstring injuries. Justin Hunter might get cut, and they already shipped DGB to the Eagles. Craig Stevens just retired though, he was the #1 blocking TE.
The mentality is a lot different this year. The ownership and GM situation is much better. Amy Adams Strunk bought a house in Green Hills, the new GM is from Union City. They are both more involved than in seasons past. A lot of the coaching staff came out of the old Steelers system, they are building it like the playoff/SB teams from the late 90's.
