    What I'm getting from this is you want him gone and think this might sway the FO to keep him whether the reason is valid or not. Not trying to put words in your mouth just saying what it seems like. If anything this will probably ensure that the FO decides to move on from him. A speed RB nearing 30 with knee complications is not exactly ideal.

    Meh. It's more "bang for your buck" issues.

    Yes. You understood me correctly. However sometimes you see crazy things happen where the brain trust thinks an injury was the issue more so than the play, or was the cause.

    Hopefully, like you said, they see it oppositely and just move on.

    You blame whoever can't carry their own weight and you picked the guy who scored the most? lol Okay. That makes sense. What about the players who were making very good salaries and were actually awful? There were a few of them too. We would all like CJ's production to be more consistent and better, but we'll likely replace him with a guy that will perform no better overall and get hurt much more often.

    Yeah it's clearly bull. No one would have surgery on a perfectly good knee. The fact that you would even insinuate that is ridiculous and shows how oblivious you are.

    Right or wrong, CJ and this team has not been winning or successful. The guy had 2 good season warranting that 8 million. That's it. It's time to look at the overall picture on this team and the organization. To say that cutting CJ doesn't help this team implies that you clearly don't pay attention to money and how that helps a team with depth. Tell me how he has been spectacular and truly making this team better? Anyone....Exactly. They beefed up the line, had different coaching, playcalling etc...and 3 years later, here we are listening to him talk S#$% before the season, and at the end of week 17, checking out numbers like 1,077 with a 3.9 ypc, and a longest run of 30 yards...and cutting him to fill other holes is a bad idea???!

    We spent a ton of money last year and yet did we improve? No.

    Also, to imply that fans just choose to "Hate" on the apparently only good players is a D bag thing to say also. I have supported Wright from start to finish, and he quietly put up great numbers with crappy QB's. I can't say the same for CJ. He complains like a girl, talks crap like he is elite, then puts up numbers that rookies surpass...True Titans fans want leadership, depth, and overall beneficial moves for the team as a whole to be successful. I am sorry if I am not on some knee pads doing some dirty work for CJ because he runs a 4.24 at 30 but falls over when the wind blows. You guys are on your own there. I am a fan of this team as a whole.

    Defensiveily ten fold...The only thing they didn't improve on defensively was sacks/pass rush...Offensively, they will never be anything great until Locker gets better or is replaced IMO.
