    In case you missed watching it live, watch the replay of the his 99 yard TD run on He had three magnificent stiff arms, and showed both strength and endurance. He was running near the sideline most of the way, so all the defenders would have needed to do was to push him a little off course to get him out of bounds, but he powered straight through all of them. So far in the game, he has 4 TDs and better than 200 yards rushing if I'm counting correctly.

    That dude is nasty. I remember when we somehow beat them in the Sugar Bowl and they quit giving the ball to him.

    Much like Peterson, he was that way as a freshman in college.

    i kinda thought Henry would be more of a Jerome Bettis. Peterson never worried me about how beefy he was going to be. I thought Henry would be pudgier.

    I can see that. He seemed like the Predator to me.

    Stiff arm number two and three were on a couple of pretty big dudes too. Both of them looked bigger than Henry.

    Was awesome. Took me back to the days of Payton and Campbell. They never went down easy and defensive players often got hit harder than they did.

    Who can ever forget Hacksaw Reynolds flying backwards into the endzone courtesy of the Tyler Rose?

    Dorsett still really holds the record alone....Henry had a full offense to help him....Tony did it with 10 on the field......

    Best 99 yard romp I’ve ever seen. He had to break several tackles on the way.

    That was my thought too. It was reminiscient of Marshawn Lynch in his prime with the Seahawks when he'd throw Saints and Cardinals out of his way on the way to the endzone.

    Here is the first in the playoffs against New Orleans. Favorite part of the run is when he tossed #22 5 yards with his stiff arm.

    Beast Mode run 2.0:
