    I'm not hating on the man for getting paid, hell, he was getting paid like a 3rd stringer and he just had a 2000 yard reason, good for him to get a fat paycheck. But even with a good offensive line, he's average now, it's pretty evident he's not nearly the same player anymore. It happens, it's actually quite common... Ricky Williams, Jamal Lewis, Shaun Alexander, Eddie George, Larry Johnson...

    I'm mad anytime we pay lots of money for very little production. We weren't paying him for past performance, that's why we drafted him in the 1st round, to be highly productive.

    Yea CJ earned most of that money, he was playing for slave wages. And like Geronimo said, some guys just fall off a cliff and suck.

    Same thing will probably happen to him that did to VY, someone will pick him up, he'll play sparingly, won't justify the pay, and will go to another team. Once he's not getting all the carries and not producing, that team won't have any loyalty to him and will see better options in younger cheaper players.

    With players like CJ, you're always paying for past performances, it's just how it is.

    Yeah, have a feeling that building is going to have a big "For Lease" sign on it pretty real soon.

    If Chris Johnson rode a bike, this would be him, 8-yard loss
