In his latest MMQB column, Peter King throws out a little love for everybody's favorite new Titan:
Stat of the Week
There's not been a bigger impact rookie in the first two preseason weekends than Tennessee running back Chris Johnson, the first-round pick we all criticized because the Titans had taken running backs high in the previous two drafts. Here are the yards for each of the 14 preseason carries of the lightning-fast Johnson, from East Carolina:
Versus St. Louis: 3, 3, -1, 6, 0, 66.
Versus Oakland: 15, 15, 2, 2, 13, -3, 0, 2.
First 14 NFL carries: 123 yards (8.8 per carry).
I'm stickin' with that nickname too.
Also, pay no mind to the mention of VY on the next page of PK's column: PK only pretty much only likes traditional 'blue collar' QBs anyways...
