A View From Eagle’s Nest


Well, we got us a W this week. We also got one more week of sub par performance from CJ1/2K, more dropped passes and of course more excuses as to why the running games isn’t working.

Don’t get me wrong, I’m ecstatic we won but I am very concerned with this team. I’m very concerned that we have a Pro Bowl RB that can’t find a hole to save his life! Do you know what was obvious yesterday when watching the game? It was obvious going in that Palmer tweaked the game plan to get Ringer and Nate Washington more involved. Do I think its necessarily a bad thing, no, we won didn’t we, but I do have problems with it.

The main problem is that we need to tweak our plans to get CJ more invovled.  Someone please tell me why in the world we have not tried running CJ out of the shotgun, running him out of 4 wide sets, 3 wide sets, something to spread the defense and get him in a less congested area.

The wideouts continued to drop the ball, run the wrong routes and generally play like Titans WRs normally do, unimpressive. Without Britt we simply don’t have an impressive corp of receivers. One thing though, they will all look better next year when Britt comes back from his knee injury.

It is a long season and the Titans look a ton different than they did last year, our running game is done unless we use Ringer more.

    To be honest I think CJ has no care whatsoever to be a Titan. I think he wanted out of Nashville. He runs like he doesn’t care! The O-line isn’t that bad, I bet Hass is enjoying not getting planted compared to last year. Ringer found the holes not because he is a better player than CJ but because he puts forward 10 times the effort! Britt going down really hurt this offense and it’s way to late to add anyone that would have an impact this year. There is something going on with CJ, I have no doubt about that, but unfortunately we will probably never find out.

    I think that there are more than a few reasons as to why the running game isn’t working. CJ definitely doesn’t seem to be running as hard as he has before but then again, he also has a legitimate complaint about a lack of holes to run through. Let’s not forget that when Fish and Eddie were here, there were also times where the running game was abysmal, but we had a 235 lb back that we could pound for 3 yards a clip….CJ can’t do that. CJ is going to work best operating in space….so why is that not happening more? Like I said, there are more than a few things wrong with the running game.

    It seems like people have forgot that Greedy Johnson (Chris Johnson) was an holdout. Under a new system, with almost no work following the season will do that to a guy.

    Maybe there are reasons why it is happening to CJ… Maybe he is not that enthusiastic as before.

    I could see CJ being a little rusty after the holdout but this is ridiculous. We’re also talking about a guy that takes great pride in his work ethic, I believe most who know him will tell you that.
