Here's the full 7 minute video from ESPN's E:60 on Chris Johnson. It leans a little towards sensationalism, but CJ2K gives them plenty of fodder for that characterization. He's got one undeniable point though: there's no way Peyton Manning deserved that MVP award last year. If CJ2K didn't deserve it, then they better never give that award to anyone other than a quarterback ever again. Hell, just change the name to Most Valuable Passer. The other thing I took away from this? CJ2K is a lock to be dead broke within 5 years of his career ending. Book it.
Congratulations to Keith Bulluck, who after being essentially spurned by an ungrateful franchise, signed with his hometown New York Giants this weekend. If we had to lose Bulluck (which we didn't) I'm at least happy that he got to sign with a team that's close to his home. I just hope they appreciate what a classy warrior they're getting. Too bad the Giants' SB Nation blog couldn't get his name right on the introduction post...
Yahoo!'s Shutdown Corner looks at how far Keith Bulluck has fallen, using comments from MCM commenter, FO contributer and Total Titans scribe Tom Gower:
Bulluck's problems in 2009 in pass defense were twofold. First, he started the year playing with a lack of discipline in zone defense. This is something he'd done in the past, but his speed declined from excellent earlier in this career to merely good/very good, meaning he was less able to recover from the freelancing... [regarding stopping the run from a zone D] he simply can't stay with them the way he could when he was younger.

David Boclair looks at how to improve upon an 8-8 record.
Bret Kern is changing up the punting game as he replaces the retired Craig Hentrich, but one thing may stay a fixture on the Titans' fourth and longs: the knuckle punt.
Lane Kiffin worked in Tennessee for under a year, and he's already absolutely hated by the major college program and the only NFL program in the state. Do you think Monty Kiffin and George H. W. Bush ever call each other late at night to discuss how your kids can ruin a lifetime or work you put in to build a good name?
I'd like to extend condolences on behalf of the entire MCM family to Bill Cowher, who lost his beloved wife to cancer this past weekend. Cower was perhaps the only high-profile person who honestly resigned from his job to spend more time with his family, which speaks volumes to the kind of man he is. Kaye Cower was on 54, and leaves behind three daughters. Just a sad, sad situation all the way around.
Sergio Kindle is now expected to make a full recovery after suffering a frightening head injury after falling down several flights of stairs.
