    Most of the hate comes from him averaging 65.43 rushing yards per game last season after holding out to become the highest paid "play-maker" in the league. This team could have used one of his throw away games early in the season to make the playoffs.

    "Play-makers" don't drop the ball when no one is around your motionless body.

    Not sure if serious. He wasn't saying LOL preseason. He was fixing a typo from pee season.

    I'm certainly not saying we should cut him. That's just crazy talk.

    But if I'm Munch, I do send this message... "CJ, you were the fourth best back on the Tennessee Titans last week, so you don't dress this week. Stand your ass on the sidelines in workout clothes and catch passes from rusty on camera while everyone laughs at you."

    I mean seriously, I understand that he was going against ones while the other three weren't, but he was easily the worst back on the field last nigh, of our other three and at least two of Seattle's.

    Did not matter which D was on the field...CJ was not exactly under any pressure on those dropped passes.

    Zero excuses for the drops. Only hope is they come back heavy on the screens next week to see if he corrects that. I think it has to be a real threat for the Titans this year to counter the teams stacking the box.

    He's been dropping balls in practice too. The guy just can't catch.

    The issue with CJ is that a 5 yard gain on a screen just isn't good enough for him. He is always looking for that 70 yard pick up and tries to run before he even focuses on the ball..

    I think he is waiting for these huge holes to open and bust a big one, while sufficient gaps are there and he is not taking them. He DID have running lanes yesterday.

    I'm sure it would be on TV. Every time they look at the sideline, Rusty Smith somehow weasles his way into the frame. It is a running joke at my house, he finds every single sideline shot.

    Pretty sure he has headphones just listening to the producer directing the cameras.
