Shonn Greene/Jackie Battle
How badly did everyone else miss the “Smash and Dash” as much as I did? Watching the game on Sunday brought flashbacks of the glory days of the Titans backfield. The excitement for that is just unreal moving forward.
While Shonn Greene got hurt, you could see the impact he was making right away when it came to pounding out yards and giving a different look from Chris Johnson. He will be nice to have in the backfield along with CJ.
Battle shocked me just as much as he did for a lot of other Titans faithful. He picked up tough yards and even scored himself a touchdown and filled in very efficiently for Greene when he went down.
It’s kind of like the trio you always want with a running back group. CJ brings the speed and flash, Greene brings the pound-it-out running, and Battle is a hybrid who can do both.
If this trio doesn’t excite you for Tennessee’s running game this year, I’m not sure what will.
