Chris Johnson Booed by Titans Fans

Chris Johnson may have gotten the enormous pay day he was looking for from the Tennessee Titans, but it’s looking like his relationship with the fans has been strained as a result.  The Titans came up with a big win over the Ravens Sunday afternoon, but Johnson had an average game at best.  He got the ball 24 times yet managed only 53 yards and did not find the end zone.

Early in the game when Johnson had 11 carries for only 20 yards, Titans fans booed him.  However, the crowd cheered for Javon Ringer, who had ripped off a couple of nice runs including a 10-yard score.

Are we saying the Titans should give Ringer more carries and cut down on Johnson’s workload?  Of course not, but the boos indicate Tennessee fans are not very fond of CJ2K as a person after his holdout.  Perhaps it is a combination of his missing training camp and telling “fake” Titans fans to shut up that has turned the masses against him.

Chances are Johnson will turn it on once he gets into football shape, but it has quickly become obvious that the love for him in Tennessee is now lacking.

    Not only is he still getting his “groove” back, but it was against one of the TOP 3 run defenese in the NFL!!!!      Dont worry CJ2K, your true fans know that your pro-bowl form will be here soon!

    2000 yard rusher curse. Mark my words, Chris Johnson will never be the same back he once was.
