Why has this not been brought up often (if at all)? Has no one attributed the sudden fall of Chris Johnson to the lack of a running threat under center? Maybe Vince wasn't the best leader, maybe he wasn't the best passer, and I often criticized him for using his legs too seldom. However the threat was always there. Teams had to account for it even when Vince wasn't exercising the right to take off. The one way to find out would be to look at seasons where CJ had success and take the games when Vince Young didn't play... In 2009 the Titans started 0-6 with Kerry Collins. This was when we still had Mawae, so the line was better than it's current state of course. CJ's rushing totals in the first 6 weeks are as follows: 1. 57 2. 197 3. 97 4. 83 5. 34 6. 128 Average: 99 yards per game. Not bad. Let's now look at the games when Vince Young came in. 7. 228 8. 135 9. 132 10. 151 11. 154 12. 113 13. 117 14. 104 15. 142 16. 134 Average: 141 yards per game. In 2009 that was a difference of 45 yards per game with Vince Young in the backfield. In 2010 I can't get the difference because the stats I'm finding conflict with each other. Apparently VY and KC started games together... Chris Johnson was a big advocate of VY returning after the Fisher/VY fallout... could this be why? If Locker is willing to run around, maybe it wouldn't be such a bad idea to try a few packages with him in.
