Chris Johnson tweeted yesterday that he predicts he will lead the league in rushing this season. I saw it after it was re-tweeted because I do not follow Chris Johnson and his nonsense anymore. There was already some good discussion on this in the fanshots here.
I would think that CJ would be done with predictions after he predicted 2,500 yards a couple of years ago and barely got half of that, but to each his own. Hopefully CJ is backing up those words by getting himself in better shape to be ready to go this year than he was last year. You can say whatever you want about his performance last season, but it was obvious that he was not ready to go in week one after the holdout.
The good news is he will be in Nashville this offseason for the OTAs because he has incentives his contract that pay him to be here. Maybe they will be able to work more pass routes in for him than the one where he just runs out and turns around. Making him a threat in the passing game would really help open things up for him to run the ball.
