    CJ2Kis the Titans but with the line we have now Greene would be a 1200 yard back if he were the number 1 guy.

    Anyone who says CJ is kidding themselves. The guy is too reliant on first level blocking. If the line doesn't give him a hole he dances around and he'll take a negative run instead of trying to grind out a positive run.

    No guy that reliant on his line is irreplaceable. Sorry.

    CJ on offense, Casey on defense.

    Im totally with you on this, CJ is too dependent on others to be The Guy for any team. In 2008 he was great because he was like the hot sauce on a hot dog, without that hot dog the hot sauce aint shlt.

    For us to really figure this question out, we have to look at depth.

    QB is ok with Fitz backing up Jake
    RB - we have 2-3 good runners
    WR is set, too many as is right now
    TE seems ok depth wise
    O-Line - I think we could lose an inside guy and still be ok

    Then on defense, its a big mess over there it seems, IDK what to make of them just yet. So Im leaning on the right answer being a LB perhaps......

    I agree he dances around often, but I guarantee you he shouldn't as much this year. Most high number yielding backs DO have a good offensive line. If you think he isn't important, name one other superstar on the team that gets the respect and attention that he does.....Without him, this team simply has very doesn't have that playmaker, and whoever said Greene would put up numbers as good is nutty..haha

    I gotta say CJ as well, honestly.

    I'm not basing this off of the last few seasons... I'm basing it off of what I expect from him this season.

    No one on our team can replace 1500+ yards and 10+ TDs.

    Went with CJ. Like JR said, most good RBs have at least an average line, we didn't even come close to that last year. Defenses game plan for CJ all week, he's that much of a weapon. Can't say the same about other guys on the team. I hate his dancing in the back field but when DLinemen are meeting you before you even hit the LOS what do you expect.

    I think the best thing I've seen from CJ this year (very very small sample size) is he seems to be taking what is there. I yelled at my tv many times last year.

    I also think Brown is going to have a big year, really like him.
