    Yeah he sucks man we need to fire his ass right now! 91 yards against the steelers defense?!?!? Yeah garbage! Take away the one goal line carry and his avg for the night was 5.06. What a scrub!

    Both CJ and the OL stepped up big. CJ still hesitates too much, IMO. He got better later in the game.

    The Titans don't need CJ to put up 100-yard rushing games but do enough to take some of the pressure off the passing game and help give the defense some rest. Let's hope last night is a sign of things to come.

    I think he is focused too much on trying to hit the big run instead of taking what is there. He hesitates looking trying to get something better to open up when he just needs to go. Teams have figured out how to play CJ now unlike early in his career.

    Early on teams would play too many guys close to the line making it easy for CJ to get around and get the big runs. Teams are taking a different approach now, sitting back and containing him. He needs to realize it is going to be harder to get those big long runs but that he can still be an elite back if he just takes what it there.

    He's still missing wide open field. It's almost like CJ runs with his eyes closed now.

    But it was a major improvement.

    I dislike QJ but CJ seems too need him.

    :cj: had the first good game against a good D in a long time. I was quite pleased with both :cj: and the OL. The OL actually got a push on the run plays

    And people mocked me last year when I said we needed Hall back in the lineup and that it would help CJ. And of course I was right again and it did.

    Fair enough. But we could have done better than QJ. I mean we are spending all this money on CJ. Why not spend a little getting him a decent lead blocker.
