The Tennessee Titans and running back Chris Johnson have struggled a lot this season.  They’re currently 1-4 and sit at the bottom of the AFC South.Johnson told the media that they’re not a good team right now.“I don’t believe we’re close right now. You look at the games and how we’re playing, we don’t look like a good team. I wouldn’t sit here and say we’re close,” Johnson said.“We need somebody in this locker room to make plays and give us a spark,” Johnson said. “I feel like I’ve made some plays, but the situation of a spark has got to come from somewhere and getting a spark that can be big for this team.”Johnson needs to look himself in the mirror and realize that he is the Titans’ offense and he needs to step his game up if they’re going to improve.  They need him to be a leader and not someone that’s going to rip his own team while they’re down.
