08:11 AM ET 06.04 | Credit Chris Johnson for his confidence heading into another important season. [To date, he has] earned trips to the Pro Bowl, made the covers of magazines and had fantasy football owners scrambling to get in position to pick him. He even earned a catchy nickname -- CJ2K. Coming off a disappointing 2011 season, however, the Titans running back believes plenty of fans, media and even coaches and other players have written him off. ... "There are people out there who aren't going to give me the respect I deserve. But at the end of the day it doesn't matter what anybody else thinks. I feel I am still the best back in the league, and I have no problem saying that."

He's a legend in his own mind.

One day this guy will hopefully realize it isn't all about him.

I think his confidence level may be tested early and often this season.

Prove it on the field. Until the, keep your mouthguard in place and don't try to talk through it.

He is of that generation that had a bedroom full of partication trophies. One good year does not make a legend, except in his own mind.

A bedroom full of participation trophies? At first, I thought you were talking about women.

Maybe SI should have a new section other than T&R called "Blow Your Own Horn". Unless this qualifies as a rumor that Chris Johnson has something more to offer the NFL than hot air.

Cromartie has those. The rest of us call them "children."

Respect is earned... he has some work to do there.

But - you are right. If he does put in the effort, then he may just be right.
