The Titans went 13-3 back in 2008 largely behind their stellar backfield of Chris Johnson and LenDale White. The aptly named "Smash and Dash" bulldozed opponents with maddening consistency, and the two fed off of each other perfectly.
In the CJ2K era, Johnson has not had any backfield help since White's demise. No other running back on the Titans ran for more than 33 yards in a game all last season. Coupled with the Titans abysmal offensive line, it is miraculous that Johnson has managed to stay so healthy.
General Manager Ruston Webster decided to turn back the clock and bring in the bruising Shonn Greene from the Jets on a three-year deal.
Greene has amassed over 1,000 yards in each of the last two seasons with 14 total touchdowns.
Greene's power-running style will allow the Titans to use him in short-yardage situations. Greene is also much more adept at pass blocking and will assist in keeping Jake Locker on his feet in 2013.
Far too often last year the Titans would go three-and-out after someone busted through the line to stop Johnson in the backfield and force a second-and-long.
Drives were over before they even began.
Greene and Johnson both have a lot of miles on their legs but will be able to complement each other perfectly, maximizing each other's abilities.
Smash and Dash 2.0 is in full effect.
