  • He is what Michael Bennett was supposed to develop into.

      Yea, I read that when I was going across some articles about Tom Shaw, was pretty interesting actually considering everyone he has trained. Never knew he was that fast.

          Yup, the San Fran game was the first time he scored a TD of under 40-yards.

          • I don't see the Barry comparison as much. Johnson is taller and thinner, and much more of a 1 cut runner.

                His rookie season he had 1600+ yards and 10 TD's while splitting carries and was just a hair away from averaging 5 YPC. This season he's on pace for 2,000 yards and averaging a sick 6.7





                CJ looks like his first 2 years will be better then Peterson's, he's a great receiver, shown he can run tough inside the tackles. Is this not the player that the Saints thought they would get with the #2 pick?


                How long you going to give him before annointing him? I know that last year was a pretty good rookie RB class but CJ looks really special to me.
                He's running the ball better than any back in the NFL right now. I remember Scott Wright said that Tennesse made a terrible pick in drafting him because they already had LenDale White and Chris Henry. He was obviously wrong. The bottom line is that he'd be getting more attention if he played in New York or Boston.

                • Is Peterson really that bad of a blocker, or is it just because he's so good at running that people just want to downgrade him on something?
                  He is spot on average, not a bad blocker, not a good blocker. Just average, not the kind of back that you leave in to block an elite rusher, but he can slow someone a bit, I think it is more that for someone his size you sort of think automatically that he should be a dominant blocker and the fact that he isn't gets overstated to the point where people are overly critical of his blocking.

                  I just love the way that Johnson makes a quick read, makes his cut and explodes, it helps him greatly having such a good line opening the holes, but he is still the guy who sees them, reacts and then just blazes


                  Props to BK on the sig!

                    That doesn't matter. You see his team? total garbage. how he is 3rd in the league in rushing and 2nd in total yards is astonishing. Teams that play the Rams just stack up to stop him and they still can't do it. No way Marc Bulger and his 55.9 cmp%(26th in nfl) 10/27 in the redzone, or his 5.5 YPA(28th in NFL) Scares anyone. Heck since 2007 Marc Bulger has statistically been one of the worst starting Quarterback in the NFL. In that span Bulger ranks 39th among NFL quarterbacks in completion percentage, 42nd in yards per attempt and 40th in passer rating.

                      It's not like Tennessee is much better.

                        I think you may be confused. What QB does Tennessee have that scares teams? What WR's? Your talking about Bulger like Collins and VY are great deep field passers that open up lanes for CJ.

                            1. AP
                            2. CJ
                            3-5. Jackson, Gore, Williams
                            6. Turner
                            7. Brown
                            8. MJD
                            MJD is way better than both Turner and Brown, and should be in that third category.

                            Chris Johnson is dominant. My question is this: How long can it last? Speed is the first thing to go for a player, and his style is such that just one major knee injury could totally wreck his career, even if he rehabs perfectly.

                              Is it? He has Deion Sanders/Darrell Green speed. Even when he slows down by age he will still be one of the fastest players in the league, just like they were ten+ years into their career. You are right about the injury risk though.

                              • Well then what isn't an injury risk? People say power runners don't last and are a big risk to injury or shortened career ie Earl Campbell, now people are saying speed runners are a big risk to injury and shortened careers. So the only way to avoid injury risk is to be an average speed timid runner who avoids contact?
