    Which in turns means that Johnson is a decent but not great running back that can make nothing happen independently and is completely irrelevant to our running success and thus should be jettisoned from the team this offseason.

    You can't have it both ways.

    What about his big td's off of screens.

    His presence on the field is more important than most "ignorant" fans give him credit for. For example. That big screen to mooney yesterday worked b/c we faked it to CJ and the entire defense bit that way.

    And if we would have faked it to Greene the entire defense would have most likely still bit on the play action because that is what over aggressive defenses like the Rams do when given a play fake. Chris Johnson's presence has an impact but you are over playing it tremendously in order to excuse his lack of production.

    No thats not the case at all. That 3rd down swing pass to greene would not have worked if it would have been to CJ.

    Well that is your completely unprovable opinion and is also not the play we are talking about.

    It is basic football strategy that you attack an overly aggressive defense with play action fakes, screens, and counters to get them moving in one direction and then going somewhere else with the football. That fact that a play fake worked has more to do with the play and the situation then it does with Chris Johnson and his "effect".

    You're so oblivious and absentminded when it comes to CJ discussions. Yes, our offense line has been average (at best) and anyone would admit that. However, if you're a "playmaker" you shouldn't need perfect blocking to be consistent. Put two and two together, CJ isn't elite anymore and is making elite money. It's really that simple. I don't hate CJ, I hate that we're paying him ridiculous money, when it could be used elsewhere.

    Debating CJ2K with a CJ2K person is like playing chess with a pigeon. No matter what happens, he’s just going to knock the pieces over, **** all over the board, and strut around like he won.

    First TD of the season! Wooooooooo......

    The rookie Stacy did just as well. But go on be delusional.
