    ..in the passing game? He has been targeted just 3 times through 3 weeks with 1 catch for 1 yard. We have one of the fastest, if not the fastest backs in the league. Get him out in space in the passing game, screens etc! There was a lot of talk in the offseason about getting him involved in the pass..but its been all talk so far. Its always seemed the Titans lacked in the screen game and always get beat on screens on defense though.

    Btw, I have no complaints on CJs running this year. He seems to be fighting for the extra yards and taking what's there a lot better than in the past few seasons. Hes been much more effective even if he's not getting the long runs just yet.

    Simply the play calling. It was best in the first few weeks to throw in some screens. Screens can kill a blitz and teams have been blitzing us pretty hard so far and I expect that to continue with the Jets.

    He's done pretty decently throughout his career catching the ball. No he's probably not the greatest..but you have to throw it in his direction more than 3 times in 3 weeks! Like I said before, there was a lot of talk about him being involved in the passing game. No way to know if it will work if he doesn't get the opportunity to catch a few a game anyway.

    I blame amano.[/quote] I've never understood that. Do they not practice screens at all?!

    Only thing I can focus on is the avatar ... Almost forgot about "Critters". Classic.

    We still make fun of Amano for being the most pathetic guard we've ever had starting for us.

    And I'm not buying all this "he can't catch" BS. It's a screen pass or dump off.. we're not asking him to run a precise route up the seams and hold on as a Linebacker or Safety beats down on him. We should be utilizing him more, he's our best player.
