After rushing for over 2,000 yards in the 2009 season, Tennessee Titans RB Chris Johnson declared himself as the best back in the NFL and predicted that he would top the 2,500 yard mark in 2010. He hasn’t topped 2,500 yards in his last 34 games combined. Johnson, who was all about “Show me the money” after breaking the 2,000 yard plateau, hasn’t been the same since receiving his big pay day, and he claims it’s not his fault.
John Glennon of the Tennessean quotes Johnson as saying it’s not his fault. “I’m never perfect. Even when I went for 2,000, I wasn’t thinking I was perfect. But I wouldn’t sit here and say I’m to blame”, said Johnson. Really? Some would disagree.
When asked if he was completely blameless, Johnson responded, “I wouldn’t think so, but I’m not the guy to sit here and be the guy that points fingers. It’s a situation where I’m only going to be as good as my line is going to be, so we have to work together and get better together.”
Last season, Johnson had a
BEST OF MAXIM

After his opening week performance of 4 yards on 11 carries, Chris Johnson was able to at least keep his sense of humor. But after Week 2’s performance of 17 yards on 8 carries, Titans fans are looking for someone to blame.
And though, most believe that Johnson should be shoulder some of the blame, Johnson does not. Which shouldn’t be too much of a surprise since he’s already...
The Tennessee Titans presumably drafted Kendall Wright in the 1st round with the hope that he would add a new dimension to their offense.
However Wright is slightly undersized and didn’t play in a complex offense at Baylor. His route running skills definitely need some work, but one area where he could help immediately would be to stretch the field. Wright is likely the fastest...
Once known as CJ2k, Chris Johnson is quickly falling to the depths in the rankings as running back. All we hear in return, for being fans and buying tickets, is that he will be fine and everyone needs to step up. Is this really the excuse that we must endure? All you hear, from the Titans organization as a whole, is that “the problem is a little bit of everyone and that they will...
Titans middle linebacker Colin McCarthy will be out against the Detroit Lions on Sunday, his second consecutive start missed since hurting his right ankle.
McCarthy hurt his ankle in the opener against the New England Patriots and has not practiced or played since. Coach Mike Munchak says Friday he hopes the defensive captain can return next week.
Offensive tackle Mike Otto is...
Chris Johnson has 21 yards on 19 carries for the season and it ranks as arguably the biggest bewilderment’s of the season.
Shocking to say the least, CJ2K was selected as a mid-late first round draft pick regardless of whether or not you are in a PPR league.
Many feel they should Johnson in for a bag of golf balls,...
The winless Tennessee Titans can only hope their recipe for success against NFC teams is strong enough to help them break out of their season-opening funk.
With Detroit and a loaded defensive line led by Ndamukong Suh coming to town Sunday, coach Mike Munchak knows one thing for sure: It could get ugly real fast if his Titans aren't ready.
''I think that's exactly...
FLOWERY BRANCH, Ga. Its been a rough start to the season for two of the most productive running backs in the NFL over the last five seasons, Atlantas Michael Turner and Tennessees Chris Johnson.
Between 2008 and 2011, no running gained more rushing yards than Johnsons 5,645 a crown, at this rate, that hell have trouble keeping on his head when the 2012 season has ended.
For the Detroit Lions, in a need of a game to get right, and the Tennessee Titans, in need of a strong showing before they lose control of their season, Sunday’s game has a lot of importance. The Lions do not want to be 1-2, and the Titans definitely do not want to be 0-3. However, while this looks like a game the Lions can dominate they cannot afford to play down to their competition...
Detroit Lions (1-1) at Tennessee Titans (0-2)
Before the season, I identified 5 overrated and 5 underrated teams, with the idea of betting on them (or against them) until they proved me wrong or the odds makers caught up. This served me well as I’m 10-4 this year on games involving those 10 teams (and one of those losses is because I abandoned shipped on the Bills after week 1...
The Tennessee Titans have stumbled through a miserable start but are hoping to end that by continuing a trend.
The Titans have experienced a bevy of success in recent years against NFC foes, especially at home, but Sunday's game is against a Detroit Lions team that's eager to redeem itself following a missed opportunity.
After going 9-7 in coach Mike Munchak's inaugural...
