The 2008 Titans were the top seed in the AFC playoffs. The ’09 Titans went 8-8.

“I think what happened was in Tennessee they probably got a little too carried away with the Chris Johnson thing,” LenDale White said on Fox Sports Radio via SportsRadioInterviews.
“The year before that we were 13-3 when I had two hundred carries and we split the rock. Chris went to the Pro Bowl and we had the first round bye, they did things different the next year and we struggled to make the playoffs. It is what it is,” White said.
Pete Carroll can only pray that he doesn’t uncover a 2,000-yard runner or the Seahawks could really go to hell.
