    CJ apologists lose more ground than their favorite back

    Quotes from Jim Schwartz "We need to be at our very best to stop him. That’s a very important thing for us. The first week we stopped a very good running back in Steven Jackson. Last week against the 49ers, we didn’t do a very good job of stopping the run. We need to be on our game to stop a guy like Chris Johnson. He’s a guy that you have to respect for 60 minutes of the game, because at any time he can get loose. We’re all judged on, again, what happens in 16 games, not what happens in two. When I was there, there were a lot of years that Eddie George started off slow and everybody was panicking and saying, what’s wrong with him? He always answered the bell. Now we have to make sure that Chris Johnson doesn’t get it started this week."

    Your point is invalid!

    Is it possible, now that Jake is a passing threat, it will open up the run game some?

    Then why is CJ worth all the money, then?

    If they still game plan to stop Johnson rather then our passing game then they're retarded. Heck you could probably do it with only 6 in the box.

    Who cares what chief red hat has to say? Its smoke and mirrors. Their defensive packages are what show everyone else that they are not stacking the box.

    We haven't seen people stack the box to try and stop CJ since week 3 LAST year.

    (on if Chris Johnson[​IMG] is still a key threat)
    Obviously, when you start on defense, you start with certain guys and in my mind you start with the running game. You have to be effective stopping the run. We are very aware of how explosive Chris (Johnson) is and what he is capable of doing. We have seen it first-hand. We just have to be ready to do a great job against him. You have to stop him at the point. You have to make sure he doesn’t get outside and then as we know, he had the great cutback, misdirection, change of direction run against us when we played here a couple of years ago. Everyone has to be aware of where he is at and we have to do a great job of tackling.

    ROFL. Yeah... I don't have to post anything more in response to that guy. Thanks Scarecrow.

    Can't form valid argument? NP. Just copy paste the BS lip service coaches give to players before the game. Are you really stupid enough to think a coach will come out and say " CJ is done, the guy poses no threat to us whatsoever. We are going to focus solely on stopping the pass, because that is the only way Titans can beat us."
