    Actually he is primarily playing SS with Robert Johnson playing FS. Griffin is playing FS 10-15% of the total snaps (that's how much Babs is playing the past two games).

    Which means he is is closer to the box a lot.

    Which means he should be making tackles before the ball crosses the first down marker.

    "The Tennessee Titans cannot run the ball, and running back Chris Johnson looks bad. But more alarming than that: The entire Titans team looks soft, like it has lost its physical edge. In the past, playing the Titans meant getting a physical battering -- but not anymore"

    True statement.

    CJ had negative running plays in the past. The difference was he had a lot more 10+ and longer runs.

    If you're saying it sounds too smart for him to say that then I would tend to agree lol, but apparently he did.

    I mean I knew CJ was a pretty smart guy I just didn't know he could connect sentences like that and use correct grammar..

    You see those those ellipses (...)? That's where they had to edit out the stuff that didn't make any sense. ;)
