Actually at his current pace through 7 games of the year by week 14 he'd only have about a 1000 yards. Keep in mind he gained 195 yards against the dogshit Bills, which elevates his YPC to 4.5 for the year. Take that Bills game out of the picture (because they can't stop a nosebleed) and his best game is 141 yards vs the Texans. Which is sensible. So doing a little math here...
Chris Johnson's YPC average when he's not playing the Buffalo Bills is 3.27 YPC with 0 TD's. Not something that's going to get it done down the stretch.
Over the past 4 weeks he's had 77 carries, 451 yards, 5.8 ypc and 2 TDs.
And he would have 3 extra TDs added to that if it wasn't for Jamie Harper taking the carries on the goal line..but as a Titan fan I'd rather let Harper take the beatings and just allow CJ to run free in the open field. Even if it in the long run means me losing this sig bet because CJ doesn't get the goal line TDs, it'll mean a more successful Titans offense.
Even if you take out his game vs Buffalo, he's at 59 carries, 256 yards, 4.3 ypc. And if you subtract his game vs Minnesota(since we're taking out his best game, why not take out his worst as well?) it's at 44 carries, 232 yards, 5.2 ypc against Houston and Pittsburgh.
The offensive line deserves a lot of credit for the last 4 weeks as well, they've really stepped their game up, opening some good holes for CJ. Hopefully they and CJ both can continue this good run.
