Last week the Titans were involved in an absolute shootout with the Detroit Lions and came away with a big win for them as a team.The Texans are coming back home with a 3-0 record for the first time in franchise history. Tennessee Titans (1-2): Jake Locker is playing a bit better than expected and is starting to make those decisions that head coach Mike Munchak is "happy to see."Chris Johnson has been downright awful and is facing an amazing rush defense. I beg of you, don't play him. I repeat do not play him.Kenny Britt rolled his ankle last Sunday and when asked if he would play this week his response was "possibly." If he does suit up this match-up is tough and would be a risky play.Nate Washington had over 100 yards receiving once again last week but it was a bit fluky as one of them was for a 71-yard catch and run touchdown.Kendall Wright is not yet matchup proof and this matchup is way too tough.Jared Cook is nursing a shoulder injury but is expected to...

Is it time for the Titans to trade Chris Johnson?

It’s 2012 and the Tennessee Titans need to finally trade Chris Johnson or better known in 2012 as CJ2 yards per carry to another team soon. It’s not based on the fact he has only rushed for 45 yards on 33 carries for a grand total of 1.4 yards per carry or his drop in production from the year he rushed for 2,006 yards in 2009. It’s based on what the future of this Tennessee...

Days of CJ2K as an elite RB may be history

Nashville, TN. 19 rushing attempts for 21 yards. That is an ugly stat for any running back after just two weeks into any given NFL season. But those are the exact statistics for Tennessee Titans running back Chris Johnson, who is having a rough go of it to say the least to begin 2012. It has been just over one year since Johnson ended his holdout during the summer of 2011. On...

NFL Rumors: With Defenses No Longer Respecting Chris Johnson, Should Tennessee Titans Bench Him?

The Tennessee Titans are in a difficult position. They paid running back Chris Johnson quite handsomely prior to last season. After a lengthy holdout, Johnson struggled mightily to resemble the player who ran for over 2,000 yards in the 2009 season. While many were hoping that was a result of his time missed, the Titans are looking for reasons why Johnson is averaging just 1.4 yards...

Texans vs. Titans: week 4 injury update

As the NFL season enters it’s fourth week, the Houston Texans are beginning to show some early signs of wear and tear on a few key players. With that being said, only WR Lestar Jean (knee) missed practice Thursday after several guys missed practice the day before. As of Thursday, only WR Andre Johnson (groin), DE Antonio Smith (ankle/illness), and CB Johnathan Joseph (groin...

Titans LB McCarthy to miss 3rd straight game

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- Titans middle linebacker Colin McCarthy will miss a third straight game with his sprained right ankle, and receiver Kenny Britt has missed his third straight practice with his own injured left ankle. Britt says Friday he is not ruling himself out against Houston (3-0) on Sunday because his ankle is feeling better than Thursday, and he has two more days left...

Is Chris Johnson The First Player Fantasy Football Destroyed?

If you owned the Titans' Chris Johnson in fantasy for the 2009 season, you probably won your league.  It was an "LT-esque" year for the then second year back, single handily defeating opponents each game.   Just look at his stat line: 2,006 YDS, 5.6 YPC, 14 TD // 50 REC, 503 ReYDS, 2 ReTDJohnson was most likely the number one player selected in drafts of 2010, and...

Kenny Britt held out of practice

According to Jim Wyatt of The Tennessean, Titans wide receiver Kenny Britt didn’t practice on Thursday and tight end Jared Cook was limited. With Britt now back on the field, the Titans’ passing attack is even more potent.   He had six receptions for 55 yards in last week’s win over the Lions.

Tennessee Titans at Houston Texans: Week 4 NFL Pick

Tennessee Titans (1-2) at Houston Texans (3-0) In my power rankings this week, I poked holes in pretty much every other team in the league. I can’t do that with the Texans. They are without a flaw. Winning in Denver in the high altitude against a talented team and a no huddle offense is damn impressive and 3 games into the season, this is the Super Bowl favorite and the most complete...
