The first thing Chris Johnson needs to do is pull up his pants at the club, then we can talk about what he is going to do in 2013.
Considering, Johnson has rushed for 2000+ yards in a season before, it isn’t like he is incapable of outrushing Peterson, but the Titans entire team will have to get better for him to have a shot. It is hard to run the ball, when you are consistently down by 14 points before the 2nd quarter.
Here is what Chris Johnson had to say.
The Tennessee Titans running back, coming off a 1,243-yard season in 2012, was asked on ESPN’s “NFL Live” on Wednesday if he or the Minnesota Vikings‘ Peterson, who threatened the all-time rushing record in 2012 with his 2,097 yards, would have more rushing yards next season.
“Of course, ’2K,” Johnson said, referring to his nickname — CJ2K — which he received after rushing for 2,006 yards in 2009.
When asked how confident he felt about his answer, he said he was “very confident.”
“I’ve always been a confident guy … if you want something to happen you have to speak on it it, you have to believe in it. You just got to pray and God will lead you there. I know the type of guy that I am, the type of back that I am and if the situation is right I know I can do it,” he said.
Most running backs after their 2000+ yard season have a little bit of a let down the next year, so we will see what happens with Adrian Peterson and if Chris Johnson comes back around to being a dominant runner.

It's easy to forget how informal yardage measurements are in the National Football League. After all, there's no such thing as gaining half a yard. It's either an eight-yard run or a nine-yard run. With that in mind, a very clever gentleman named Jeremy Scheff calculated the margin for error under those circumstances in order to determine the odds that Adrian Peterson...

FANTASY FOOTBALL ANALYSIS
CJ2K redeemed himself in 2012 after an abysmal 2011 campaign but he still has work to do if we want to consider him one of the best again. Sure he found ways to make us remember the good ole’ days but if he thinks we, the fantasy football...

Tennessee running back proposed this week that he would A) out rush league MVP Adrian Peterson this season and B) take a run at the all time rushing record held by Eric Dickerson.
