Here's another way to look at CJ's production so far. Regardless of his running woes, defenses are still stacking it in to stop him. We're seeing defensive lines focusing on gap control instead of pushing upfield to get to Hasselbeck. The safety is often coming up into the box on the snap. The result has been two of the most productive passing games by a Titans QB since I can remember. The OL has looked great so far in pass protection. The short passing game has been effective. Hasselbeck has been getting the ball to CJ in space which has had mixed results so far but should improve as he gets more work. How many of us have called for CJ to get the ball with enough room that he can utilize his speed in the open field? Yes, the running game must improve. I don't see the Titans going far unless it does. But even with a rusty CJ who is now having to learn to be a better receiver, he has a 7 yards per reception average so far. If that were his rushing average, we'd be ecstatic. As he learns to catch the ball in stride, look for that to improve along with him getting more looks split out wide. We heard this offseason that Palmer would be installing more of a West Coast-style offense. It looks like it's working out as designed so far. I think one of the reasons we're not hearing panic from BSP on the run game is because they know teams will have to focus less on the run game and respect the pass. When that happens, I think we'll see CJ getting more gaps. The Titans are taking what the defense is giving them.
