The gambling site bodog.com says Chris Johnson is an underdog to hit 2,000 yards... he's a +120 underdog (bet $100 to win $120) so it's not like the odds are insultingly against him. Still were I still a bettin' man I'd feel pretty safe about that bet since we don't play the world's greatest run defenses in the next few weeks.
How strange is it to see a Jeff Fisher coached team that's 14th on offense and 24th of defense? Our DVOA ratings go a long way to showing what a long, strange trip this season has been.
No matter how much time Vince Young misses to injury, he still wants and expects to play on Sunday. I'd expect him to get the nod, and I'd also expect Vince to not even try to run. It'll be interesting to see just how he fairs without that threat on the table, because it was something he struggled with in 2007 when he suffered a hamstring injury.

Chad Henne is starting to blossom for the Dolphins (though I refuse to say 'groove' about a white boy from anywhere in Michigan that isn't Detroit), and never was that more apparent than his 22-29 performance last weekend against the Jaguars.
Looks like the yesterday over Ginn's chickening out of a foot-race with Chris Johnson had it's intended effect, as the Dolphins are talking openly about how afraid they are of Johnson's wheels.
As well they should be scared: Even though Johnson slipped on his pace a little last week, he's still got the best rushing pace and total at this point in the season since Terrell Davis in 1998. THere have been a lot of running backs making good livings in the NFL since then, and none have come close to what Johnson's doing.
Jeff Fisher's son Brandon will be playing for the FCS National Championship this weekend in Chattanooga when his Montana Grizzlies face-off against Villanova.
ESPN wants you to rank the greatest single-season records in NFL history. Alas, yards from scrimmage isn't in there.
Already looking to the off-season, National Football Post has a great rundown of the certain and likely coaching vacancies around the NFL. Fisher is on there, but with a note about how the turn-around likely saved his hide.
