I have this weird feeling Chris Johnson goes off for 2 TDs this week

The unfortunate thing about our defense is that we let runners get to the second level too often. If that guy is Frank Gore, he beats you for 6 yards. If that guy is Chris Johnson, he scores, because he's faster than everyone. That's a big concern for me, definitely. On the other hand, Johnson has been terrible in his two games so far, and I think the Titans might be getting fed up with him. Maybe we'll have a Javon Ringer sighting?

I think their run blocking has been the bigger issue.

Corey Williams is back. No Delmas, Scheffler, Travis Lewis.

No Scheffler? I wonder if they'll activate Broyles for this one. They both kind of work the underneath stuff. Of course, Broyles doesn't have Scheffler's catch radius, so maybe they'll just get Will Heller more involved.

Broyles was active last week but never played because Schwartz said we never needed a 4WR set. I didn't realize it but they said Broyles was sitting away from the offense and was off on his own most of the time on the sidelines.

Yeah, I read that too. Gotta wonder what's going on. I know he didn't dress for the first game, but it's surprising they didn't at least put him on the field a few times in week 2 if he was actually active.

Your defensive line is going to crush our OL like a tin can. It's much more likely that, just like the last 2 weeks, Chris Johnson gets destroyed in the backfield on 80% of his carries.

While the defensive line looks scary on paper, they are actually pretty bad against the run. They can rush the passer, no doubt, but they focus so much on doing that that they can run themselves out of a play if the offense goes with misdirection or a draw or something like that.

It doesn't matter if your defense is 32nd in the league against the run. Our offensive line gets physically dominated by EVERYBODY. Don't ask me why...we just do.

Also, we don't do misdirections or draws or things that Chris Johnson is actually good at. That would make too much sense. We just telegraph the run and smash him up the middle every play.

Feel bad for these TENN fans. They sound an awful lot like Lions fans 8 years or so ago Sad

well, the 9ers line is very good and a lot of their big runs were from that damn "smash" play I hate. They gameplanned the run very well against us, I actually don't think we are as bad against the run as we think. Probably 16-20 ranked by the end of the year is my prediction.

I really doubt that, he's just plain bad now. When I try to predict his stats I usually think of 20 yards as about his average, 30 yards is a pretty good game, and 50 yards is earth shattering- mind blowing- jaw dropping unreal.

Umm please don't try to drag us into your little messy puddle. Lets not forget you guys have won 48 games the last 10 years, Tennesse has almost doubled that win total with 86. And that's with your team getting a top 5 pick almost every year.

All you people can look down at the Titans all you want, but I know this team is loaded with talent and can do great things once they start clicking, so please spare me your pity.

^^^^

Sorry for the troll.

And yes, your line is going to push ours around in the run like they're facing children. It's sad.
