According to Rosenthal, Titans are one of the worst position groups at RB.

    Listen, I know CJ hasn't had much of an OL to work with and he has been dancing around in the backfield more than ever, but this guy is a tool. 2012: 276 attempts for 1,243 yards, 4.5 a carry and 6td's is not TERRIBLE. Actually he had more yards than Forte, Rice, Gore, and right there along with CJ Spiller.....and with a VASTLY improved OL and more weapons on offense, including a recent starting RB, this guy says the Titans are the worst!??!?!?! These guys don't know what they are talking about...End of story.

    lol, I had a dream last night.

    1) Some egyptians offered me goat head cheese. I ate it.

    2) Somebody hid my pistol from me.

    3) We got owned hard game 1. Couldn't convert any 3rd's, couldn't sustain a drive worth a sh#t.

    Why aren't the Lions, Giants, Chargers, or Panthers on this list? As mentioned, both our Rbs had over 1,000 yards last yr, and CJ did it behind terrible Oline and injured QB. I can name reason why all those teams I listed have WAY worse Rbs. Bush and Leishore are both not 1,000 yard backs. No one on the Giants has played a full season. Mathews sucks on Chargers and never play a 16 game season. No one on Panthers is great and also don't play a whole season.

    I went and checked out all the RB's groups and listed the ones I think are equal or better than ours.

    Falcons - Steven Jackson & Jacquizz Rodgers
    Ravens - Ray Rice & Bernard Pierce
    Bills - CJ Spiller & Fred Jackson
    Lions - Reggie Bush & Michael Leshoure
    Patriots - Steven Ridley & Shane Vereen
    Saints - Mark Ingram, Darren Sproles & Pierre Thomas
    Eagles - LeSean McCoy & Bryce Brown
    Steelers - Johnathan Dwyer, LeVeon Bell & Isaac Redman
    49ers - Frank Gore, Kendall Hunter, & 4 other dudes I'd gladly have on our team

    Yea what gives, we should be higher on these kinds of lists, there's only 9 teams with a better RB situation, 10 if you count the Vikings, but after AP theres nothing there.

    Huh? I am no defender of cj1yd, but who in the hell sizes up their running attack by taking into consideration their 3rd string back? Lol.

    Lol. What stats do they use for their 3rd string Backs? High school? If they use nfl stats is probably one run per game for 12 yards cuz no one expects them to get the ball so they have a huge average. lol.

    Well the Steelers 3rd RB had over 400-yards, thats good for a 3rd guy.
    Saints 3rd guy had over 600-yards.

    Some teams like runningback by committee more than rely on 1 or 2 guys.

    Can't blame him, especially with all the money we have invested in our 2 runningbacks.
