    Titans running back Chris Johnson reached the 1,000-yard mark last week for the fifth consecutive season, which placed him in some pretty elite company.

    Johnson became just the eighth player in NFL history to rush for 1,000 yards in his first five seasons, joining Barry Sanders, Corey Dillon, Curtis Martin, Eddie George, Eric Dickerson, LaDainian Tomlinson and Tony Dorsett.

    Johnson, who has 1,037 yards on the season, said he’s aware of his surroundings.

    “Of course you pay attention to those kinds of things,” Johnson said. “But you have to put that in the back of your mind and if you are doing all the right things, the other stuff will come with it.”

    The fifth year running back also said there’s plenty to play for despite the fact the Titans are out of playoff contention. The Titans face the Jets on Monday night. Johnson has averaged 113 yards in three career games on Monday Night Football.

    “I am very fired up,’’ Johnson said. “I never pack it in early when I know we are not going to the playoffs or anything like that. As far as team goals you really can’t make it to the playoffs, but you try and build momentum for next year and work on personal goals. You know everybody would like to make it to the Pro Bowl.”

    Crazy that only 8 players have done that. CJ has really racked up some impressive things in his first 5 years stat wise. Seems like every few weeks he's breaking some record or becoming one of the first few to do something.

    Yet he somehow averages 4.6 yards per carry while doing it 2 yards at a time.

    CJ has become the whipping boy for anything that is wong with the team. It makes some people feel good to bash him. It is a way to feel better when you don't have anything intelligent or important to say.

    Only 8 players have done it and 2 were Titans.

    We've always had a good history with running backs

    regardless this type of publicity is going to benefit the team - i mean who knows, if we do decide to trade him, this will only increase his value.

    GoT: I saw that interview or script somewhere today, i didnt like how he put it. He shoulda just stopped or at least focused on trying to build momentum for next year.
