And while week one offered no actual hints of promise for Johnson, it was ripe with excuses that I'll use rationalize starting him in week two against a Chargers team that last week held Darren McFadden in check on the ground.
CJ's in-game style is a little like dragging a teenager out of bed in the morning...at first it's slow going, almost glacial, then when he finally gets going it's shower, eat, brush teeth, pack bag, sprint to school all in about 45 seconds. And with only 11 carries on Sunday CJ never really got out of bed.
In typical N.E. Patriot fashion Brady and his boys jumped out to any early lead and were up close to 3 TDs by the half, rendering moot the Titans run game. With any luck for the Titans, Kenny Britt will get some reps in week two. Britt and Nate Washington might not be the biggest knockout punch in the league - but they surely will put up more of a fight against the Chargers secondary than did Oakland's Rod Streater and Darrius Heyward-Bey. I'm looking for San Diego to have to devote a little more time to covering the receivers than they did a week ago, so CJ should have a little more room to breathe than RunDMC did.
