Neither is he making any changes on the offensive line for now, even though there are decent backups on hand. Tennessee got blasted 41-7 Sunday by Houston, forcing Munchak and the Titans into re-evaluation mode.

Chris Johnson Says He Is Still Playing Hard

Apparently Chris Johnson is still playing hard even when he is homeless.  Hard to imagine he is actually homeless considering he just signed a 53 million dollar contract.  We assume he is making an analogy about the way he is playing. Playing hard might buy you a couple weeks with the Titans fans, but it's not buying you time with fantasy owners that drafted you in the...
