Found September 17, 2012 on Larry Brown Sports:
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 is understandably frustrated with the unit for getting pushed around through the first two games, and he decided to air it to the public after Sunday’s loss to the Chargers. “The run game ain’t working,” Johnson said according to The Tennesseean. “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.

Chris Johnson points fingers in Titans demise as he plays through personal tragedy

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...

Johnson calls out teammates

Following another dismal performance on Sunday, the Titans running back didn't point the finger at himself, instead deflecting the blame to those around him. 

Dear Chris Johnson: A Letter From A Fan Begging For Your Help

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...

Titans’ Chris Johnson calls out his own teammates

After Sunday’s loss to the Chargers, Titans running back Chris Johnson made it clear that he believes his teammates aren’t doing their jobs, which is effecting his production on the field. “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,” Johnson said. ...

Chris Johnson frustrated with Tennessee Titans offense

The Tennessee Titans have started off the season last in rushing in the entire NFL.  They have put up an embarrassing 29.0 yards per game in the first two weeks against the New England Patriots and the San Diego Chargers.  Chris Johnson has a total of 21 yards in those two game on a 19 carries.  That's just over a yard per carry. Now today Johnson openly admitted his frustrations...

Chris Johnson Remains a Non-factor in Week 2

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...

Muy Frio: Chris Johnson

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...

Week 3 Rush Defense: The Burning Bush

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...

Scott Hanson Narrates My Sundays: Week Two Fantasy Notes

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...
