Tennessee_titans_30x21 If you looked at the team and the stats with no idea of the name or year you'd probably confuse it with an Eddie George stat line, but yesterday was Chris Johnson's day.  He earned the golden ticket, and he crossed into the promise land of the immortal 2,000 yard club, crushed Faulk's yards from scrimmage record and rewrote the franchise record book all in one afternoon.  No matter what happens from here on out, nobody can take away those accomplishments.  Congrats to CJ, because he deserves more accolades than he's going to get this year.

Tennessee_titans_30x21 Best read of the morning goes to Paul Kuharsky, who turned-in a novel on CJ's accomplishment, and goes further than anyone to put this year in perspective for the young superstar.  Make sure to familiarize yourself with the last few paragraphs, as they cover CJ's current contract, since it could reasonably become an issue in  the off-season.

Tennessee_titans_30x21 Ed Hochuli is one of the best refs in the NFL, but that holding call on Hall that nullified CJ's long run was a crock.  If you're going to rip that run away on such a special day it has to be a grotesque display.  Instead, it was a ticky-tack hold that was completely insignificant to the play.

Tennessee_titans_30x21 I don't know that anyone else sees us in the Super Bowl next year, but if you're going to have unbounded optimism I guess it's best to hear it from Vince.  He's calling for the Super Bowl, and he's claiming to put in the work that's necessary.  Like I said on MCM radio last night, he better do just that because the offense may have to carry the load next year.

Tennessee_titans_30x21 Vince Young didn't have a great game Sunday, but he did definitely bounce back from the abysmal performance he put up against the Chargers.  Though, it's definitely getting sad/annoying how much he mentions watching the 2005 Rose Bowl tape.  I mean I'm all for what ever helps, but you don't have to talk about it so regularly.

Tennessee_titans_30x21 Here's a breakdown from the Seahawks perspective, but really I just linked it because it mentions McRath and we need to congratulate the rookie on his first INT!

Tennessee_titans_30x21 CJ is already a lock to be the no. 1 fantasy draft pick in most league's not populated by uninterested hacks in 2010.

Tennessee_titans_30x21 Good read here from a former agent on what they'd like to see changed in the NFL.  I was honestly surprised how many of these I agreed with (earlier draft date, 8th round added, more active roster spots, make IR not so permanent, etc.)

Tennessee_titans_30x21 Jim Mora didn't want to have to explain Sunday's game to his grandkids, but if I was him I'd settle for not having a timeless tirade like his daddy's "Playoffs!!??!?!?!" spiel.
