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.”

If Tennessee can’t get something going on the ground, the situation could turn ugly in a hurry. Titans fans wasted no time turning on Johnson last season when he was struggling, regardless of whether it was his fault or the offensive line’s. C.J. is a back who once ran for 2,000 yards and was paid accordingly after holding out. As the man who is making the most money, he also bears the burden of accountability.
