    Better blocking. Better passing attack. Full off season. Chip on shoulder = 1500yds. Hopefully.

    We can try and analyze it all we want but the bottom line is that CJ is not and has not been a yardage producer as a pass receiver. You would think he would be dangerous as hell with some open space in front of him but 7.3 yards a catch is not impressive.

    And JC's admonition that CJ would be better in the slot doesn't wash. I want Cook and our Wrs lining up there and running those routes not CJ.

    When teams are forced to focus more on KB/Wright/Locker/Cook, then they won't be able to key on CJ as much. Then CJ will destroy them.

    That's the thing. We almost never get him the ball in open space. It's almost always a catch in traffic right over the center. He's made some great plays at wideout.

    Open space? For CJ? It's hard to get him in open space when he has a spy every play. This might be the 1st year he doesn't have someone keying on him. And that's only because we've got too many weapons to key on one player.

    the no-key will last as long as CJ is CJsideways. One CJ2k game and its back too 9 in the box with the Titans being forced too pass too beat teams. This has proven too be a sound tactic in the recent past

    I can't wait for the game some D-coordinator puts nine in the box with Locker, Britt, Washington, Wright, and Cook on the field.

    I guarantee that play ends with Mike Keith screaming TOUCHDOWN TITANS!

    CJ would be worth the money as a distraction alone. Meanwhile we'd have the best passing attack in the league and our receivers will run wild. Would be a great season.

    Putting 9 in the box with the weapons we have is a death wish.
