If you weren’t sure if the Tennessee Titans cared about QB Jake Locker's health, you can be positive now, as the Titans have chosen Offensive Tackle Chase Warmack (and his gut) out of Alabama as the 10th pick in the 2013 Draft.
Don’t be surprised if you see a resurgence in the career of the once dominant Chris Johnson as well. Titans making a super smart choice here.

“Michael Jordan put up 50 points when he was sick. What C.J. did, that’s a testament to him, to come out and keep working. We are definitely proud of him. People have been on him all year about not having the production they think he should have, but he’s pushed through it, and he kept fighting.”

Damian Williams nonchalantly comparing Chris Johnson to Michael Jordan. Though we don’t endorse the comparison I am legally obligated to say. Guess who’s bizack.

Just two seasons ago, Titans running back Chris Johnson broke Marshall Faulk’s single season record for yards from scrimmage, finishing with 2,509 yards and an average of 125.4 rushing yards per game. The man they called CJ2K proclaimed that he wanted to be the Michael Jordan of football. 
This season, the same running back has averaged just 2.9 yards per carry and today, was replaced by back-up Javon Ringer in the fourth quarter against the Colts.
Someone explain to me how we got here.

Four years for $53.5 million with $30 million guaranteed. Everything between CJ2K and the Tenessee Titans is just peaches and cream.

I know Arian Foster spoke out about the fantasy nuts the other day when he injured his hamstring. Which by the way, I like him even more (if that’s possible) for doing so. But I took Chris Johnson with the 7th overall pick in my twelve team draft tonight and I felt sick doing it.
And someone sniped Javon Ringer from me in the seventh round.
Give me your fantasy draft stories.

Larry Fitzgerald Got Paid. Chris Johnson Should Not Hold His Breath.

    Eight Years, $120 million with $50 million guaranteed. That’s the contract extension that Cardinals wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald just signed. The contract is gaudy, but befitting for one of the game’s top players and arguably the top wideout in the NFL (Andre Johnson is the only guy in the same league). 

    This is a great move for the Cardinals. They have locked up the most important player in the history of the franchise. This also validates the Kolb trade. Even if Kolb underperforms, the trade was worth it because Fitzgerald almost certainly would have entered free agency had the Cards not acquired a veteran quarterback. 

   The Larry Fitzgerald contract will also have a huge impact on some of the other big name players seeking new deals. The biggest beneficiary of the deal has to be Eagles receiver Desean Jackson. Jackson has already ended his holdout, but when the Eagles try to use the franchise tag on Jackson next offseason, his franchise tender will be much higher as a result and his long term deal will be bigger due to Fitzgerald upping the ante at the position.

    Titans running back Chris Johnson will not be so lucky. Due to the fact that he plays a different position, the Fitzgerald contract has no bearing on his negotiations, despite Johnson’s reps contention that Johnson should be paid as a playmaker and not a running back. Chris Johnson is among the top players in the league, but that does not change the fact that running backs are easily replaced. You can find great value at the running back position. Here are the top ten rushers from last season and the rounds in which they were drafted:

  1. HOU Arian Foster - Undrafted
  2. KC Jamaal Charles- 3rd Round
  3. ATL Michael Turner- 5th Round
  4. TEN Chris Johnson- 1st Round
  5. JAX Maurice Jones-Drew - 2nd Round
  6. MIN Adrian Peterson- 1st Round
  7. PIT Rashard Mendenhall - 1st Round
  8. STL Steven Jackson- 1st Round
  9. NYG Ahmad Bradshaw- 7th Round
  10. BAL Ray Rice- 2nd Round

The league’s top rushers serve as a great example of how you can find some real gems at running back in the later rounds of the draft. With that said, why should the Titans break the bank for Johnson? This is a team with holes all over the place and that money could be used to lock up other young players and build depth. The fact that the Titans have been mediocre for most of Johnson’s tenure certainly doesn’t help his argument either.

    The NFL is now a passing league, which makes quarterbacks, cornerbacks, defensive ends, wide receivers and left tackles the most valuable players. While having a great running back is nice, it is a luxury not a necessity and the Titans are in no position to be splurging on luxury items.

Top 10 Things We Learned About the NFL in Week 1

Football on Sunday, full of thrills, anger, agony, defeat, victory, cheering, and lessons. Yes I said lessons, if anything for some people football teaches more lessons than your school instructos do. What did we learn from Week 1 so far….a lot. This has no real order by the way. 

1.) Quarterbacks should always attend training camp to get on the same page with their recievers. 

2.) Even if you catch a touchdown, don’t celebrate it until you check for a yellow flag…Signed Roy Williams.

3.) Quarterback controversy IS possible in Week 1. 

4.) Catching a ball in the endzone does not mean that it is a touchdown…just ask Calvin Johnson

5.) The Raiders still stink and Chris Johnson didn’t just have one good season. 

6.) Whoever didn’t start Arian Foster on their fantasy team might have killed themselves already, but aside from fantasy, he is going to add to an amazing Texans Offense. 

7.) Steelers will do just fine without Big Ben for a couple of weeks.

8.) The 49ers don’t really seem like a sure lock to win their division just yet.

9.) No one team really stands out yet. 

10.) Losing in Week 1 doesn’t mean anything, it’s just like losing in Week 8, ask the 2008 Superbowl Champions..they’ll tell you.

We learn a lot from football….but here is my lesson to pass on to you fans. Never give up on your team, and always support your players to the fullest. You never know what can happen, that’s why this is football..and not basketball.
