    Lendale did a radio and got asked why the Titans didn't make the playoffs in 2009.

    "I think what happened was in Tennessee they probably got a little too carried away with the Chris Johnson thing," LenDale White said on Fox Sports Radio via SportsRadioInterviews.

    "The year before that we were 13-3 when I had two hundred carries and we split the rock. Chris went to the Pro Bowl and we had the first round bye, they did things different the next year and we struggled to make the playoffs. It is what it is," White said.​

    Riiiiiight. What an idiot.

    He is either talking about controlling the clock with more short yard plays or he thinks he could have been a difference maker on D.

    "Coach, CJ is scoring too fast. Put me in so we can score less and use up more clock"...

    he's stupid. He left hear with respect. But he just couldn't keep his mouth shut. No pun intended.

    Yeah, our running game was awful last year. Didn't have anything to do with our defense or special teams.

    If he's talking about him being able to move the chains to sustain long drives, he has a point. But the problem is more about a defense which often trumped the production of a 2K rusher.

    This displeases me. Rb was not the issue. LenDale isn't making any fans out of anyone with his narcissitic bs.

    In all seriousness controlling the clock better during some of the first 6 games may have helped but in reality he is takling rubbish.

    For some reason I don't have so much of a problem with it, he can have his opinion. After being traded so cheaply I imagine he has a dented ego and is trying to big himself up. Afterall he is still competing for a starting job

    He was a garbage back. He was scared to run anybody over. He was just a slow, fat back.
