08:05 AM ET 11.29 | Arian Foster made quite a statement, and, in a way, so did Chris Johnson. The former University of Tennessee back racked up 218 yards -- 143 on the 30 rushes and 75 on nine receptions. The Titans managed just 162 yards, with Johnson contributing five yards on seven carries. Johnson had just two yards on three carries in the first half, and the five-yard total was his career-low. It seemed like every time Johnson got his hands on the football, a Texan was waiting for him. "We just have to watch film and see what happened," Johnson said. "We weren't able to run the ball at all so I'm not sure." Later on Twitter, Johnson posted: "I pray I don't have another game like today even tho it was out of my hands."

Here's what happened, Chris... you had a rookie QB.

The interior line has been pathetic this year. And Rusty Smith looked like he was moving in slow motion. CJ should be disappointed.

WORD!!

That's what happens when you sign a new fat contract.

Could it have been 8 men in the box?

I thought I saw 10 men in the box. Maybe all 11.

On the plus side, the Titans did have Courtland Finnegan setting the tone for the defense.

to Fisher's credit he saw the writing on the wall early...CJ only had 7 carries

yeah, but he got his arse kicked in his on the field UFC debut; I don't think Dana White will sign him, though...

Andre Johnson on the other hand...

Yep and he was terrible in this game.

The line has not been pathetic at all. Hard to block 8-10 men with 5. Simple math. Until we throw the ball with any kind of effectiveness CJ will be hard-pressed to get his yards.

November 29, 2010  09:02 AM ET

Fisher is the right guy. Relax Chris, be patient.

LOL! Think he wants to run into old Andre in a dark alley? He was lucky that there were people there to pull him off cause it was going to get even uglier than it was in a real hurry.

No doubt! Andre looked like a bad dude in that replay! Finnegan isn't so tough when his helmut is off.

Point taken, but, Amato is getting blown into the backfield. Harris has been lost. Scott has fallen off. Roos and Stewart are the only two who have been decent. So frustrating.

CJ now sees what Walter Payton and Earl Campbell faced week after week.

Wrong. He's still one of the league leaders in rushing.
