According to Rosenthal, Titans are one of the worst position groups at RB.

    I don't think I can legitimately say any group is better than ours. There are teams that compare to us, but I can't say they are flat out better. We are in a log jam for the top spot.

    If you dont believe the Steelers have a top notch backfield then youre not paying attention. Those 3 guys will be a problem for us, all 3 are capable of starting and they're all 230lbs+.

    We did handle their RB's really well last year, but theyve since invested a top pick in a RB, and will be getting David DeCastro back vs us, we lucked out cause he missed our game last year.

    Yeah this guy is stupid. Chris Johnson will have at least 1200+ yards if he doesn't dance in the backfield (which I don't think he will) and the only thing the will stop him from challenging from the rushing title is the fact that I think we will give Shonn Greene 40% of our carries.

    If Greene gets 40% of our teams carries then we are doomed! He should get no more than 15% of teams carries a game at max!

    Our RB's coach said they'll roll with the hot hand. He said if that means Greene having 20 carries then so be it, but that may also mean C.J. gets 30+

    In 2008 we had Chris Johnson and LandWhale White on a 55%/45% split and we seemed to do just fine. Greene will most likely be used in all short yardage, red zone situations, and the great majority of snaps in the 4th quarter; that's a lot more the 15%.

    Just on when we need short yard gains.

    If we are up an trying to kill the clock Greene will get the call and start racking up 3-4 yardsfor us.
