Fiscally Speaking: Chris Johnson and DeAngelo Williams

There have been several people who have said that the Tennessee Titans should sever ties with the struggling Chris Johnson. That would be a foolish mistake for the front office to make especially after the Titans signed Johnson to a four-year $53.5 million contract extension, including $30 million guaranteed in 2011, ending his holdout.
If you are going to pay someone the money that Johnson is being paid, you need to implement a good blocking scheme and run plays for him that allow him to do his job efficiently.  Last season Johnson finished with 1,047 yards rushing and 418 reception yards.  So far with three games into the 2012 season, He has 45 rushing yards with only 33 carries and 63 receiving yards.
I cannot believe that Tennessee Titan head football coach Mike Munchak who played offensive lineman for the Oilers/Titans organization is in denial that their offensive line has issues in regards to rush blocking especially at the right tackle position.  If Johnson ends up somewhere with a better line and blocking scheme, he will end up putting up old numbers, then all of the people blaming Johnson will finally be enlightened to the real problem and that is the offensive line.
In 2011 DeAngelo Williams and the Carolina Panthers agreed to a five-year, $43 million contract, 21 million guaranteed.  So far with three games into the 2012 season, he has 118 rushing yards with 31 carries and 28 receiving yards and this is without Jonathan Stewart for two games who he shares running back duties with.
In the 2011 season Williams had 836 rushing and 135 receiving. Also Jonathan Stewart had 761 yards last season.  If Carolina had no plans of implementing him more into the offensive scheme of things then why re-sign him? That was way too much money to invest in a running back that share carries and has already peaked.
Williams averaged fewer than 10 carries a game last season – his fewest since 2007 when he was splitting time with Foster and far cry from his days at Memphis, where he averaged 22 carries a game.
In 2011, the Panthers beat out the Denver Broncos and New York Giants to secure Williams, and likely had to up the price in order to secure his services.  Basically in my opinion they should have let him move on.
Both the Carolina Panthers and Tennessee Titans have bright futures ahead of them but if they continue to take such financial risk without research then that bright future will turn dim very quickly.

I'm afraid that CJ may end up getting hurt if they fail to upgrade that O-Line.

thats absoutley correct..You can pay running back all the money in the world but if they do not have blocking they are not going to be effective.. I dont care who it is... Just a thought you can have a runner run an awesome race barefooted but I bet you if he had some good running shoes he would be a whole lot faster !!!
