    because he's in good physical toughness shape, but not mentally tough. If something doesn't go his way immediately, it's obvious that he gets discouraged and throws in the towel.

    This whole argument thread reminds me a lot of the VY defense threads. Which were maybe even less dumb than these, because even in Vince's last season, he had some decent games and some inspiring plays.

    Please don't say Mentally tough. I am not saying that you are wrong, but that term still rings in my head about a certain QB that I will not name.

    I edited that post. There are a lot of similarities here between the two.

    Yeah, coaches game plan for CJ to help their defense get off the field by providing some 3rd and longs.

    I wonder if the coaches have been tricked because CJ showed his "burst" against the Titans Run D in Training camp. There is one team CJ can get to 100 on, the Titans!!! Sad

    I just watched the Fernando Velasco interview, and when asked about his thoughts on CJ saying "he's only as good as his line lets him to be", with a smirk Velasco referred to Munchaks saying: "know your job and do it".

    I have a feeling he's implying CJ isn't seeing things clearly or isn't attacking the holes.

    Lol! Good one, GJ.

    Look, this shtick is funny. I know everyone's all butt-hurt CJ ain't living up to the hype, but yeah, teams are still putting guys in the box. The announcers (of which Mike Martz was one) said when the Lions played man and brought an extra defender down.

    It may not be 9 anymore, but it's not like any of our receivers are garnering extra attention yet. CJ is still seen as our big play threat around the league. He may have some, he may have none left. With each passing game, the demise of CJ seems more true, but schematically, teams just stay at home against him now.

    But soon it will be Locker who will be seen as the big play threat. Maybe then the running game can get back to being average.

    Maybe wrong, but I thought in his mega contract deal there were certain things he had to commit to and one of them being staying in Tennessee during the offseason and working here instead of Florida and also he had to attend a certain number of OTA's, etc.

    Most definitely correct. If he misses a certain amount of OTAs he loses something like $500,000. A great leader there, he needs to be forced to workout in Nashville.
