running back Chris Johnson
is beyond frustrated and is beginning to lash out verbally.
Johnson has so far had 21 yards on 19 total carries in two games this season.
The great CJ2K is averaging less than a yard a carry right now and has a message for his teammates, according to the Tennessean
“The run game ain’t working,” Johnson said. “We just aren’t executing the plays. I don’t know why we’re not.”
People need to step up and do their job. They don’t need to let people beat them. It don’t matter who the opposing defense is, you can’t let your guy beat you. You just can’t give up plays. You have to make plays like they make plays. I can’t speak for the defense. I can only speak for the offense.”
Johnson, who played yesterday despite the passing of his grandmother, is feeling the heat from all circles. Pundits suggest he’s cashed it in after getting a huge deal and no longer has the heart. Some are suggesting that he’s not as good or as well all think he is.
Whatever the problem may be, everyone needs to do their job.Glenn Erby is a NFL writer for FootBasket. He also owns the NFL blog, Tha Cover 2. You can read more about him over there. Follow him on Twitter @thacover2.

The Tennessee Titans were thought to be one of the dark horse candidates for a playoff spot in the AFC but so far after two weeks of play, they have proved only their critics right.
Once a phenomenon, running back Chris Johnson continues to sputter out gaining just 21 yards over the first two games of the season.
Yesterday, Johnson should have been tuned up for a big day with Kenny...
Chris Johnson has picked up right where he left off this season. Unfortunately for Titans fans and his fantasy owners, that is a very bad thing. Johnson had a down year in 2011 and vowed to bounce back with a vengeance in 2012. Unless carrying the ball 19 times for 21 yards is bouncing back, CJNoK is off to a brutal start.
The main issue has been the Titans offensive line. Johnson...
Dear Mr Johnson,When you were drafted to the Titans I was actually giddy. After seeing your blazing time during the 40 yard dash at the combine I had goosebumps when I thought about what you might be able to do for the Titans during your career. Flashes of Barry Sanders ran through my mind. When the Titans' first round pick came around and you were still on the board, I...
At what point do we stop starting Tennessee Titans' running back Chris Johnson on the “potential” that he could do something each week?...
Tennessee running back Chris Johnson was a non-factor again in Week 2, rushing the ball eight times for 17 yards.Fantasy Spin:The Titans have a total of 58 yards rushing in two games and they are led by Jake Locker's 32 yards on four carries. Not what fantasy owners who were looking for a bounce back season from CJ were hoping for. While you may be tempted to trade him, his value...
It was another long day for Titans running back Chris Johnson, who gained only 17 yards on eight carries against the Chargers in a 38-10 loss on Sunday. He has 21 rushing yards on 19 carries through the first two games.
The run game aint working, Johnson said. We just arent executing the plays. I dont know why were not.
Johnson expressed more frustration after...
FLOWERY BRANCH, Ga. Its been a rough start to the season for two of the most productive running backs in the NFL over the last five seasons, Atlantas Michael Turner and Tennessees Chris Johnson.
Between 2008 and 2011, no running gained more rushing yards than Johnsons 5,645 a crown, at this rate, that hell have trouble keeping on his head when the 2012 season has ended.
I’m hanging my head in shame Juan…
I really had high hopes for Chris Johnson this season after his finished last year so strong. Jake Locker has not lived up to his potential and the defenses’ can smell the fresh blood. We all know opponents are going to stack the box knowing that Johnson is their only stud with big play ability. After seeing him week 2 he just looked...
Owners of Chris Johnson might be justified in their concerns thus far, but after two weeks, there are plenty of running backs who have yet to have the opportunity to break out for a huge fantasy game. One such player is Maurice Jones-Drew. Sure, he scored a TD off of a short pass in week 2, but rushing totals of 77 and 60 yards is not what we’ve come to expect from MJD. Don’t...
What Is Good With Chris Johnson?
Nothing. Absolutely, positively nothing.
21 yards in two games? Are you kidding me? I swear on all my extra pine tar that I would be able to get more yards than that in two games. I may not be able to walk again, but I’d get you 22 yards.
What’s the reasoning for the transformation from CJ2K to someone who is impressed with Cedric Benson’s...
The Tennessee Titans have stumbled through a miserable start but are hoping to end that by continuing a trend.
The Titans have experienced a bevy of success in recent years against NFC foes, especially at home, but Sunday's game is against a Detroit Lions team that's eager to redeem itself following a missed opportunity.
After going 9-7 in coach Mike Munchak's inaugural...
