5/24 Greater Titan Poll Results: Eddie George 61, Chris Johnson 33

Eddie George vs. Chris Johnson: Greater Tennessee Titans Poll Results

Joshua Huffman

(Before the poll was closed, another voter gave a 33rd vote to Chris Johnson. That’s why the results are 61-33, not 61-32).

Chris Johnson is the greatest player to ever have the word Titans across his chest. This isn’t a debate.

That quote came from the introductory sentence from Titan Sized contributor Carlos Beard’s May 13th piece, “Chris Johnson: The Greatest Tennessee Titan.” Beard goes on to mention that while Johnson is the greatest Titan, many people don’t even consider him as a possibility for that honor.

It appears as though a debate exists. When Titan Sized polled readers on “Who’s the Greatest Tennessee Titan,” Steve McNair won in a landslide. This Eddie George vs. Chris Johnson poll was used to determine whether readers believed that Johnson had earned the designation as the greatest running back in Titans history.

In the hearts of most Titans fans, George is still No. 1. If Johnson wants to win those fans, then he’ll need a few more seasons similar to 2008-10. Some fans prefer George because he’s the humbled running back who has the longer resume. George is the franchise’s all-time leading rusher with 10,009 yards. He’s second with 64 touchdowns. The “me-first” mentality that exudes from Johnson has damaged his reputation in this market.

Johnson has the greatest individual season of any running back. But does one greatest season make for the greatest player? With a revamped offensive line and a greater concentration on the ground game, Johnson has every opportunity to change minds and complete his career as the most productive and greatest running back in Titans history.

    Is aid it before and will repeat myself. Eddie meant more to the team and endeared himself to the fans.

    CJ may be the more prolific back with a greater skill set, but more goes into being the greatest “Titan”.

    #9 will be VERY difficult to dethrone in that category.

      Glad you re-posted that here. I meant to take your quote from that other post and publish it in this results piece.
