    Del Rio lets the clock run and Cj finishes the game with 1 less run of 30+ yards and 1 less TD. Fisher was more than willing to let that clock drain away. As for CJ getting the run then I agree with you except that it was really fun to watch.


    Sidebar - Del Rio was dropping Edwards back too pass with under 10 seconds left. Anything that happened under 2:00 is Del Rios fault.

    How does Del Rio still have a job? That team once had game - drafting monsterous DLinemen etc.. Even my wife noticed that they all look like a bunch of chubby midgets (sans ML)

    Yeah, I have zero problem with us running offense when the opposing team is still calling timeouts. But that doesn't change the fact that CJ never should have been the one out there running the ball in that situation.

    It would be amazing to have them both. Hopefully Ringer can develop into a Bradshaw caliber back. I can definitely see some similarities in the two. Ideally, I'd like to see CJ getting 15-20 carries a game with Ringer getting 8-10. I know some people will say he's our best player and you want to have the ball in his hands as much as possible but I don't think it's that simple. Don't get me wrong, I love CJ and he's a heck of a weapon but I just don't think he's built to be 25-30 carry a game back, at least not for any prolonged period of time. If we keep running him like he's Eddie George or Earl Campbell he's gonna be a shell of his former self in a couple years. If we manage him and his carries correctly he could be an elite player for us for many, many years.

    Good post. I think we just don't want to pay so we're just going to use him up and get rid of him.

    unfourtunatly RBs are replacable commodities, but CJ is a unique talent playing a position the Titans rarely pay second contracts for.

    Snyder will pay CJ the money when Titans are done with him.

    And he'll put up mediocre numbers behind a mediocre line, unlike he has here.
