It's hard to wrap your brain around what has happened to Chris Johnson this season. If not for his 2,000-yard season in 2009, Johnson would not even be the starter right now. Javon Ringer would be the starter.
However, since Johnson has the same reputation that got him his big contract, he will continue to get plenty of opportunities to shows he's worth a $50-million contract.
The last straw came when he only managed 34 rushing yards against one of the NFL's worst rush defenses this past week against the Colts.
Currently Johnson has just 302 yards rushing on the season. That's a lower total than players like Delone Carter, James Starks and Jonathan Stewart.
You can't use the argument that he's not getting enough touches because he's among the NFL's leaders in total number of rushing attempts with 107.
In fact, the players who have that many attempts are at least 100 yards ahead of Johnson at the moment.
It's not just the production that's not there. The confidence and the passion for the game seems to also be lacking.
The only positive thing you can say about Johnson this season is that he has increased is role in the passing game with 27 receptions, but that's a big reach considering his offseason claims of being the best offensive player in the game.
A dramatic change has to occur with Johnson in the second half of the season or the Titans will never survive the back end of their schedule which includes several tough opponents.
