Tennessee Titans to change offensive philosophy for next season.
Since his 2,000 yard rushing season in 2009, Chris Johnson has been largely disappointing as a running back for the Titans.
Due to a young Quarterback coming in and a dreadful offensive line, it has been little wonder why Johnson has failed to return to that form that put him in the talks of being one of the greatest ever.
Now however, it seems that ‘CJ2K’ is about to return to that form next year. The intentions were clear from the draft, as the main intentions were to build the offensive line, to give the 27-year old a chance at helping the offence return to form.
His offensive co-ordinator Dowell Loggains has also confirmed the transition to a run-first offence, as he spoke to Nashvillecitypaper.com on Monday.
“We want to be able to run the ball when we want to and when we need to,” Dowell Loggains said.
“Obviously, the commitment that Webster and Munchak made to rebuilding the interior of the offensive line is a big part of that.”
The Titans haven’t been to the playoffs since 2008, and are starting to build a team that is finally worthy of a wild card spot, with Jake Locker starting to develop into a genuine starting Quarterback and Johnson on the verge of returning to his old form, the future seems bright for Tennessee.
