    I'm sure every back would have about 100 more yards if holding wasn't called lol.

    This is pretty ridiculous:

    1) The line is playing much worse
    2) CJ is definitely more hesitant
    3) Fisher needs to get Ringer in there way more. It's inexcusable how much Johnson is being used. He was getting carries late in a blowout last night.

    ^^ I agree.

    It's not the CJ show. It's the "Titans" show. Who cares how many touches he gets if we use him effectively and win ball games.

    I'd rather have a CJ who shows up in a big way for 8 years, than a CJ who breaks records and then falls off after 4 years. It's in the franchise's best interest to look out for the wear and tear put on his body.

    With Collins in at QB, no way he hits 2K again, defenses just don't respect Collins enough and will stack 8-9 in the box.

    CJ said he asked fish to go back in because he felt the offense needs to work every opportunity they can to get better.

    Really, sometimes I prefer the way Ringer runs. I sure hate to gas Gloat up anymore then he is, but he made some accurate assessments of their running style. CJ is a little shifty behind the line. Sometimes that patience opens up some good holes and huge plays, sure. But Ringer just kind of lowers his shoulder and charges at the LOS right off the snap, hitting defenders hard. AND he still has some wheels in the open field. I like the looks of this running tandem and definitely think Ringer should be getting around 20+ percent of the snaps.

    CJ had no business in there at the end that was stupid. Why do we not run toss sweeps at the goal line? I wish we would get him more involved in the pass game and run plays that get him to the edge more. Options, toss, sweeps, screen pass, bubble screens,etc. No wonder the kid wants his money fisher will wear him out in 3 years the guy is not 250 lbs

    He's definitely lost a step.

    My friend (not a Titans fan) said it during the Monday night game.

    It's obvious. He's a lot slower than he was last year. Don't know why or if it's in his mind, but he's not even beating linebackers to the edge now. They're flying in and making him look like a regular back.

    I'm not gonna say that sucks but I don't necessarily buy it. He hasn't lost a step and he isn't any slower than he was last year. Teams have watched plenty of film on him and are keeping him in check by keeping an angle on him. And it hasn't helped that we're so damn predictable.

    It's clear we're gonna just run CJ, run CJ and run CJ some more until the wheels fall off. And was it just me or did Coach Fisher smile when Kerry went into the game? Like seriously, I am almost certain he was giddy.
