12:26 PM ET 03.02 | Since entering the league, Chris Johnson and Adrian Peterson have seemingly been locked in a battle for the designation of the NFL's top running back. Of course, there are other candidates here and there when Peterson or Johnson don't perform up to par, but both players surely have legitimate claims to the throne. Peterson took the NFL by storm (again) this past season, when he returned from major reconstructive surgery on his leg to rush for 2,097 yards, falling just eight yards short of Eric Dickerson's record set in 1984. Johnson rushed for 2,006 yards in 2009, earning him the "CJ2K" moniker that he loves to use. But which running back will have more yards in the 2013-14 season? According to FOX Sports, Johnson thinks he has it in the bag. Appearing on ESPN's NFL Live on Wednesday, Johnson said "Of course, 2K," when asked which of the two backs between himself and Peterson would have more yards.

I didn't really feel particularly enthralled by that rivalry last season. What I remember about last season is AP leaving that rivalry ten miles back in his rear view mirror.

Why doesn't CJ2K put his money where his cry hole is and put a million bucks?

If he beats AP, then he can keep it, if he doesn't beat AP, then he donates it to the Wounded Warriors Charity.

Talk is cheap with Johnson. He should play for the Jets.

AP had a much better OL in front of him. Enough said.

Which makes Johnson's claim even more ridiculous...

This guy is the biggest joke in the game.

How about vowing to get more wins than AP? That would be much more respectable, not to mention realistic.

Let me correct that before the hating, "*get more wins than AD"

In Music City, we only want him to help win games....could care less about how many yards he gets...got 1300 last year and Titans were horrible.......just shut up and produce results, like wins....

I'm sure A.P. doesn't waste a waking moment even thinking about it.

In Florida, a man was killed when a sinkhole opened in his bedroom and swallowed him.

Why couldn't Chris Johnson and Adrian Peterson have been in that house instead?

Funny statement coming from a guy who hasn't shown any effort since signing his fat contract extension in 2011.
