Jaguars DT John Henderson was a guest on Monday's "Afternoon Blitz" show on NFL Sirius Radio with hosts Adam Schein and Solomon Wilcots and talked about Jacksonville's big win over the Colts and preparing for the Tennessee Titans...

...During the 8-minute interview, Henderson was asked about the importance of limiting the Colts rushing game to just 34 yards and forcing the Colts offense to become one-dimensional.

"That's very important," Henderson explained. "You always try to get the Colts one-dimensional, because if you've got them two (-dimensional) it's going to be hard to beat them. And I thought we did a great job because we love stopping the run, we love it. Just to get Peyton back there making quick decisions is another great thing, because you don't want him to get started."

Henderson also marveled over the way the Jaguars offense dissected the Colts defense on Sunday. And when asked if he had ever personally witnessed his team or an opponent rush for over 300 yards in an NFL game, he said with a hearty laugh, "I would be real upset if that ever happened to us, I couldn't bear that."

"That's embarrassing to me, just being a defensive lineman. And that's you're number one goal is to stop the run. You've got to take a lot of pride in that."

And when asked about his thoughts on rookie running back Maurice Drew, he said, "It's just great to see him run. I mean, it's great to see Fred (Taylor) run, but to see him get in a hole, he's not down and still on his feet and everybody (else) is on the the ground, it's just wild. It's just amazing to me," he said.
