Who is the modern jerome bettis ?


Thanks I’ll check him out. I just saw an old re run of the Pats game in Rothlingsbergers 1st season and old Bettis gets the job done

    Derrick Henry.  Though they are actually VERY different runners.  But both are big and tough to take down.

    But Bettis was much more of a straight-ahead power back.  Henry, despite his size and the highlight reels is actually more of an angle running zone back.  You'll notice Henry does his best work on zone runs to the perimeter where he can use good vision to find a crease, hit it upfield and take defenders on from the side more than from the front.  He then uses a powerful stiff arm to shed them rather than running over them like The Bus.
