Titans Chris Johnson Makes Pro Bowl Roster

Chris Johnson becomes the second rookie in franchise history to make the NFL’s Pro Bowl. Earl Campbell earned Pro Bowl honors as a rookie in 1978.

The dynamic Johnson, Tennessee’s first-round pick (24 th overall) in the 2008 NFL Draft, ranks second in the AFC and sixth in the NFL with 1,159 rushing yards and eight touchdowns. He ranks second in the AFC with 1,418 yards from scrimmage and fifth in the AFC with 62 first downs. Johnson is tied for sixth in the AFC with nine total touchdowns. He has registered 20 plays of 15 or more yards and gained 10 or more yards on 37 plays in 2008.

Johnson has led the team in rushing yards 13 times and registered 100 or more yards in four career games. He has led or tied for the team lead in receptions four times and led the team in receiving yards twice in 2008.

He rushed for a career-high two touchdowns vs. Minnesota and at Detroit. His career-high 168 rushing yards at Kansas City represented the second most rushing yards by a rookie running back in franchise history, second only to Earl Campbell’s 199-yard game in 1978. Johnson ripped off a career-long 66-yard touchdown run at Kansas City.

He is the 11 th player in franchise history to hit the 1,000-yard rushing mark in a season. His 1,159 rushing yards are currently the third most by a rookie running back in franchise history behind Earl Campbell (1,450 yards in 1978) and Eddie George (1,368 yards in 1996).

    Sam: When are you going to post a creditable thread? Opinions are fine if you can back them-up. That in turn gives you credibility. ALL that he/she said gossip is worthless=ZERO! Once more CJ is a good RB; end of the story. Take off your ECU biased blinders. Please work on your English grammar. Have you heard of verb conjugation? Thank you

    Chris Johnson's high stepping and Lendell White's stoming on the Terrible Towel will be the Titans DOOM!!

    I will have to admit, they had a good run, although they would have lost in the 1st round to the Cincinatti Bengals, had it now of been for Carson Palmer being hurt. The so called Chad Ocho Cinco, who I despise, lost all kinds of opportunity to run the show with Palmer geting hurt. That was Chad's peak time. For rumplestilskin awakes, you don't know me and i could care less b/c you have to be plain dumb to say that I don't know any football BS, but i will agree with the fact that Chris Johnson is way too cocky and that could bite him in the butt one day, but what's different is that Chris Johnson is a very nice cool and smart guy, who is one character and Mike Vick is a complete dumb and cocky jerk, who my cousin in law told me lots of stories about the trouble making he did even in high school. Ask Her, she graduated with Mike Vick in high school up in the Peninsula area. Just about everbody up there hates both the Vick brothers. I'm sure Marcus had something 2 do with the dogfight.

    Sam you probably havent caught my comments yet you are not smart on Football even Ecu football. I've read all your comments before subjecting you to my opinion. The Titans are a good team so are the Steelers so don't let that win go to your head. Chris Johnson is a oustanding back who is fast!! But he is big headed which will lead to his downfall. I predict about 4-5 years and he will be forgotton. Any one who sighns his autograph as 4-2 is to big for himself. I mean it was just a 40 yard dash time. Mike Vick had a 4-2 40 were is he playing back yard football and spending quality time in the showers. He let his head get to big as well.

    Sam the playoffs is a brand new season. Anyway, CJ didn't do much and the Steelers played vanilla because homefield doesn't mean much to them. I guess you don't remember the Super Bowl 40 year when the Steelers won 3 road games enroute to a 5th Lombardi Trophy.

    Well Well Well Dave, it looks like Chris (and other Titans players) did what it took for the Titans to whoop up on your Steelers and will go pro bowling, but I will have to admit the panthers did lose to the giants, after John Kasey made me very mad for destroying the opportunity to get the win on a 50 yarder that he has not missed but maybe once in that range all season (have to look at his stats). That not knowing much about football comment is bogus cause you can't tell someone who goes in and looks at the details of the individuals and the teams and each situation, and talks with friends about it that they don't know much about football. I would expect that I know more than you do, cause you must have never looked at any details of the panthers and want to talk trash just cause you may be getting tired of hearing about the Panthers (that goes with ECU to).

    Chris Johnson isn't all that great. Like Dave said, we will see what he can do against that absolutely fearsome Pittsburgh Steelers defense.

    If this jock did not go to your precious ECU, this would not be news.
  • by DAVE on Dec 18, 2008 at 04:23 PM
    Sam I don't know how you can call the #1 defense in ALL CATEGORIES slow. That just goes to show me that you don't know much about football.

    Big T, that would be the L.A. Lakers of the NBA. In the NHL and MLB, I can't think of no purple and gold teams right off of the top of my head. NASCAR's Jamie McMurray has some purple and gold on his car so you might want to pull for him come time NASCAR gets back in.
