    Not all on cj line hasn't done much but playing has been poor running him up middle like he is a 250 pound back .... Need to get him in space like Jamal Charles ... But he hesitates and doesn't always grab the 3-4 but IMO backs you can find anywhere release him and use money to lock up some of our players

    This is the 2nd or 3rd time I've heard "we should use him like Sproles" in the past week or so. Problem is CJ and Sproles have totally different skillsets. Sproles is a MUCH better receiver. He's also shiftier/more elusive. CJ is fast. That's really about all he has going for him at this point.

    I agree with you that we're not doing CJ any favors with this OL/playcalling though.

    I guarantee Webster will let Chris Johnson go after this season is over with.There is no way we are going to pay C.J. ten million dollars salary next season especially with the way he is playing.That ten million will lock up some players we really need like Verner and Pollard.I loved watching him play here the last six years but there is no way he will be here unless he does some salary reduction and we all know that isn't gonna happen.Besides i'm ready for a damn back that will at least give us four yards or so every carry.

    :cj: was NEVER worth a second contract, much less the retarded third contract he held out for.


    The day this idiot is not longer a Titan will be a good day.

    The only thing the little guy has going for him, IMHO, is he is tough as a hammer - too bad hes dumb as one too.

    I don't think he ever got a 3rd contract.. this is his second. Drafted in 2008, held out after 2010. Hasn't done crap since.

    Hasn't done crap? Maybe he hasn't lived up to expectations but fans like you who think this are just ignorant. If you compare every season to his 2009 season then yes it's gonna be a let down but you cant expect him to do that every year. Thats not possible.

    He was the lowest paid running back after rushing for 2000 yards and breaking Marshall Faulks record. He deserved to get paid. Quit taking your sore butt out on him get over it and move on.
