In this article we will review the running backs.

Has Shonn Greene really lived up to expectations in his two years with the Titans? Even though Greene played in the shadows of Chris Johnson last season, he still was only able to muster up 295 rushing yards in 11 games, averaging 3.8 yards per carry. Maybe, I am expecting too much out of the run game, but for a guy who had back-to-back seasons of 1,000+ rushing yards to end his tenure with the Jets, I should expect more, right?

Now, it looks as though Coach Whisenhunt has put trust in Bishop Sankey, and rightfully so. If Sankey can continue to make huge strides in the last half of the 2014 season, he could very well produce some impressive numbers for his rookie season. As far as talent, the running back position is not an area where the Titans are seeing serious troubles. I would go as far to say that I like Sankey, I think he has a future starting role as the primary running back, leaving Greene’s days in Nashville numbered.
