On this day 29 years ago, the greatest football player to ever grace this earth was born. His name? Derrick Lamar Henry Jr. True story: when he came out of the womb, he stiff-armed his doctor so hard, he had to be rushed into surgery. Not Derrick, the doctor.
So to commemorate his birthday (and coincidentally that doctor’s death), as The #1 Derrick Henry Fan Site On The Internet™, we figured we’d share every breakdown video we ever made about him.
Let’s be honest. You’re back at work this week. It’s cold outside. Things are slow. You don’t want to be working. So just procrastinate. Knock out the last few hours at your desk job by watching Derrick Henry at his. Watch him piss all over defenders (metaphorically of course) and mark them as his territory. Many people tried to claim Derrick Henry Is Toast, but I’m pretty sure the league’s second-leading rusher proved those dodo birds wrong.
Anyway, let’s celebrate the birthday boy!

Here’s a song (and its remix) that we wrote about Derrick Henry! Bump this at your next tailgate!
And a road trip we took earlier this season to see the King play in person.
