Imagine this: Chris Johnson enters the season with little on-field fanfare. He plays behind an aging quarterback/young exiting quarterback and an offensive line with a lot to prove. The Tennessee Titans have signed an aging tight end known for his run blocking ability. His team isn't predicted to do much, but he runs for 2,000 yards.
Yeah, 2011 is going to be great, isn't it? Wait, did you think I was talking about the 2009 season? It's understandable since the situations are nearly identical.
In 2009, it was just his second season and he was just another solid running back. In 2011, the story is all about his contract. In 2009, he had Kerry Collins and Vince Young. In 2011, he has Matt Hasselbeck and Jake Locker. In 2009, he had Alge Crumpler. In 2011, he has Daniel Graham.
You get the point. I'm basically predicting CJ will run for 8,000 yards.
Kenny Britt's potential is undeniable. It's his off-field actions that might hold his career back. Britt was fortunate to not get suspended by Lord Roger Goodell (whom I actually really like) and should be motivated to make the most of it.
I see big things coming from the Titans' offense.
