    CJ would be a great piece of an offensive pie - if he wasn't paid and used as 8 pieces of a 6 piece pie.
    He would be so great used as a fresh alt to a stud wide-load back.
    That scenario will never happen..

    Again, its just saying there is a chance he could be. THATS IT. I imagine the coaching staff we have is trying to put together a solid season next year to keep all their jobs. So no way they let go of their best offensive weapon no matter how much he is due or how many years he has left. I bet they believe they will fix the O-line in the off season and give CJ something to work with. I cannot see the Titans releasing him not when jobs are on the line.

    And I thought you were trying to be a funnie and created an intentionally misleading thread that turned out to be about the cornerback, Chris Johnson.

    You surprised me. Congratulations.

    I agree. Wish he didn't have that high price tag and we could trade him. I hope they are shopping him right now. I'm OK without him. We don't have the OL and what we get won't be gelled for a year anyway. He'll waste another year and we won't get all that out of him.

    I hate to cut him just for cap space. But I'd trade his azz in a split second.

    So we should cut CJ?? Why? So we can have another hole to fill? So we can "save money" ... who gives a sh it? Are you Bud Adams? Is it your money?

    Oh its so we can go out and get more FAs ... yeah like we are going to be able to sign the top FAs at every position. Some of you guys are borderline retarded. Most if the top FAs will be resigned or tagged. We had cap money last year and missed out on most. And when is the last time a good team was built through FA? Cowboys couldn't do it. The eagles dream team was a huge success (yeah right)

    Oh but by the time we are good again CJ will be past his prime... so? You are saying you want us to suck even more in the interim? We probably wont be very good until most FAs we sign this year are past their prime too.

    We would much better off focusing on the real issues than creating more. (ie fixing the OL, D) ... we fix those now ( through the draft) and we will have a solid base for several years no matter who the coach/QB/RB is.

    Plus if we gut the team then we delay getting better anyway. Gut the team this year and you basically are giving Munch 2 more years. (You cant expect him to have a good year starting from scratch) then if he fails again, a new coach will come in and regut the team.

    Munch needs success NOW... he wont get that by cutting his best players. He MIGHT achieve it by filling holes, and if we fill holes but still suck next year, then the new coach will have a better foundation to build from

    I don't think it's all that likely, but is more possible than you seem to want to admit.

    He is scheduled to make a ton of money next year.
    He is past his prime. (Note: that doesn't mean he sucks)
    Based on recent comments, it seems as if he doesn't particularly want to be here anyway.

    And technically Randy Moss is the greatest player to ever wear a Titans uniform. :)

    He's the 2nd best RB in the league. If we released him, he'd get picked up by a team with a good offensive line sooooo fast. And he'd probably put up another 2,000 yard season or close to it.

    I watch a lot of redskins games, since I live in the area, if they had CJ2K last season, he'd of broke Dickerson's record.
