RB Javon Ringer (Tennessee Titans) – So, how did that holdout work out for you Chris Johnson?
Dare I say there is no bigger disappointment this season than CJ2K. Instead of the elite back he tricked us into thinking he was, he looks more like some scrub who just got the call up from the practice squad, producing an average of 43 rushing yards per game. Patience is wearing seriously thin on the Titans sidelines as they have to realize that if they want to make a serious run at the playoffs, Chris Johnson isn’t the man to carry them to the promise land.
Up steps Javon Ringer. Ringer saw 33 snaps last week to Johnson’s 30 and pretty much was the featured back throughout the fourth quarter. Coach Munchak said Johnson is still his starter, but also said they’d be taking a committee approach, playing the hot hand. You can’t get much colder than Johnson so look for Ringer to slowly take over the bulk of the Titans carries in the weeks to come.
