I was laughing to myself tonight while reading through the transcript of Mike Munchak's Monday press conference because this question had to be asked by gramsey:
(on if Chris Johnson’s holdout might have cost the Titans a win)
I don’t know about all of that, you can point to a lot of things just in that game alone that we could have won that game if… we can go through a whole list and watch the game of all the things that could have happened that maybe we win that thing. But sure, you want all your players in house from the beginning and we said that when camp started, there is no doubt that that’s a plus, but it’s not the reason we lost the game.
Let's be honest, that is a stupid question. CJ didn't look good, but he is by no means the sole reason the Titans lost that game yesterday.
One thing is for sure, they have to find a way to get the 30 million dollar man rolling or it is going to be a long season. His running will get better as the season goes along, but my main concern is still with the interior of the offensive line. Things aren't going to get any easier for them this week as they face the Baltimore front this week.
