    Myth!

    Of course its a myth, because lets face it guys, he's simply not that good anymore.

    Its a myth that Chris Johnson always saw 8-man fronts. The CJ Nutswingers of America can disband now.

    See guys I told you C.J. hasn't been the same guy in quite some time.

    *I do apologize for another CJ thread, and I know I said once he';s off the team he's no longer the target of my evilness, but I lied. Im milking this for another few days til I have something better to talk about.

    I've done stated this statistically analysis does not take into account enough variables. This was done by some dude who just counted loaded boxes each run. Which does not explain anything because there are many more factors.

    I wish I could, its a disease. Im thinking of starting 4 Vince Young threads next, what do you think?

    I do admire how you stopped calling for Ryan Fitzpatrick to be our QB though.

    I never saw it as the defenses loading the box, I saw it as defenses figuring out the way to defend against CJ was, essentially, containment. Don't give him any obvious options where to run.

    His biggest plays - most, not all - seemed to be on busted plays.

    Wrong again buster. But nice try.

    A loaded box is defined by: any run front where the offense has fewer players available to block than the defense has in the front.

    Pittsburgh loads the box vs CJ almost every play, but theyre deceiving because while they may show 8 even 9 in the box, rarly do they commit to the run the way you'd think. Thats half of why those Dick Lebeau defenses are so special.

    Sorry, a friend of mine used to say the word "done" the wrong way all the time. Mocking ensued.
