08:06 AM ET 06.11 | Chris Johnson probably won't get his way. In Johnson's perfect world, the football finds its way into his hands 25 times a game -- 20 carries and five pass receptions. This just in: It's not a perfect world. "To say you're going to get a guy 25 touches a game is pushing it," Titans offensive coordinator Chris Palmer said. "That's 400 touches over the course of a season. He's certainly capable of that, but what does it mean for the team? Does it help us win?" Translation: Individual wishes and personal glory can be counterproductive to the greater good of the team. In Johnson's landmark season of 2009, he averaged 22 carries and three catches per game on his way to an NFL record 2,509 total yards. But the Titans went 8-8.

CJ's thinking "Team - what's a team?"

Balanced attack is what they need. They have good receivers now, so CJ won't be expected to have the ball 25 times.

This guy...

Nope, and he should be thrilled that he's still considered the featured back. Get over himself and work toward team goals.

Indeed. A thread about the Titans, a thread about Seattle and one about the Jags. All teams that everyone is equally uninterested in.

More cowbell, and more Ochocinco.

In years to come, as research on dementia in former NFL players expands, they will find that this schmuck had dementia BEFORE he ever put on a helmet.

Oh, yes, and he's a stupid, ******* ******, too.

Show up to OTAs and training camp on time and in shape and maybe they'll consider your desires.

Is there still a great desire for divas?

And he'll be getting paid the same to do a little less. How nice for him.

Apparently not in Arena League Football.

Send him to a club where he will get the ball every down and be ground down into a cripple within a year.

When did he say he had a problem with it? Not in this article, this is pure speculation. But with their QB situation, they need to feed him the rock
