As many of you could probably guess, I was quite happy to hear the Titans squash any talk that was brewing of CJ being released at the end of the season. Not only is the guy a consistent playmaker who's earning his money, but this year he's doing it with the most patchwork, beat-up offensive line the Titans have fielded. And before anyone says CJ isn't earning his money and you can find equal talent for cheaper: the only guys with more rushing yards than CJ2K this season, and who have proven they can produce on this level year-after-year, are Peterson and Foster, who are making the same as or more than Johnson. Can you strike gold with a journeyman veteran or one of the two legitimately good rookie RBs in each draft? Sure. But when you have that rare, consistent workhorse who stays healthy and changes games, you pay the man what he's due.
After a slow start to the season, and several years of being the bane of this defense, our LB group is growing into the strength of this defensive unit. Ever since Jerry Gray made adjustments nearly a month ago to how he utilized Akeem Ayers and Zach Brown, the young duo have totaled 5.5 sacks and an even longer list of momentum shifting plays.
Congrats to Jurrell Casey, who managed to be the only Titan to make PFF's Pro Bowl team, though they readily admit Alterraun Verner basically got robbed so that they could reward Devin McCourty for playing well at CB and Safety.
