10:14 AM ET 06.05 | NFL running backs hitting 2,000 yards is becoming someone what common. Only seven players have hit the milestone, five of which were in the past 15 years roughly. What's almost more surprising is that it's happened in the past 10 years, three times when the NFL has transitioned to a more passing oriented offense. And Tennessee Titans running back Chris Johnson thinks that he, not Adrian Peterson, could be the first to do it twice.

But would that not mean earning his pay? Rather unprofessional of him.

It is very unlikely that he will run for 2.000 yards in 2013. Maybe he hasn't looked at his teams schedule. Unless he has 200 yard rushing games against San Diego and NYJ's chances are he will be far behind the pace needed for 2,000 yards going into his teams BYE WEEK, Oct 27.

He will either have to increase his Yards per Carry, or else carry the ball about 30 times per game, which is much more than the 17 carries per game he had in 2012.

I will bet him his seasons paycheck that he won't make 2,000 yards.

The Titans are not going to play any games with a Quarterback, Just Running Backs?

We do have Jake Locker, so you are correct in your assumption......
