Tennessee Titans: 4 Thoughts on a dream backfield featuring Henry, CJ2K
By Brady Akins
4. So, what will the rest of the Tennessee Titans offense be doing?
Oh, that’s right. The other guys on the team might not be thrilled if the Titans did nothing but ran the ball.
Ryan Tannehill has proven to be too good of a quarterback. He’s also proven that there’s no need to take the ball out of his hands entirely. He can do more than toss a few check-downs to Chris Johnson. Likewise, AJ Brown has shown that he’s too good of a receiver to not demand somewhere around ten targets per contest.
Tannehill, Brown, and the other members of the Titans passing game might not be thrilled at the idea of playing in a modern NFL but in an offense that hits over 700 carries. Still, even with that being said, those frustrations at a lack of volume would more than make up for themselves when the Titans became the most efficient offense in the National Football League.
Derrick Henry has shown that he has Hall of Fame potential already, and we’re at the beginning of his career. Johnson has a case to be crowned as the best Titan of the modern era. Having those two players on the same team, in the same offense, would be a nightmare for the rest of the NFL.
It doesn’t matter that they play the same position. Both are so talented, while luckily possessing complementary skillsets, that in a parallel universe, both could co-exist in harmony and light the league on fire. If only, right?
