It sure was nice to see Chris Johnson show up for the 2011 season on Sunday. He really looked like the CJ of old in the second half of the blowout against the Panthers when he ran for 130 yards on 27 carries. Hopefully that will help his confidence going forward and he will be able to put up some big numbers against teams with better run defenses.
It was good to see the Titans play well enough in all three phases of the game to get Johnson 27 carries. While it is not a good idea to give him that many carries week in and week out, it sure was good to see them playing to protect a lead instead of passing to try and come from behind.
There is still a lot of football left to be played. This team can make a push if they get the kind of effort they have gotten out of Johnson the last couple of weeks.
