No matter who’s right, the Titans are not going to change the cast of characters involved in the league’s last-ranked running attack.
Titans coach Mike Munchak said he isn’t going to give backup running back Javon Ringer the ball more ahead of Johnson. And he’s not going to bench any offensive linemen.
“We are not running the ball the way you’d like,” Munchak said via the Tennessean, “but when you change the offensive line, it can’t be a one-week thought. You may mess up more things. . . . In the passing game, those five guys are doing a really good job.
“So, is it worth sacrificing if maybe we get 10 to 20 yards more rushing if the quarterback gets hit three or four more times because you have communication problems? You have to account for all the factors, and sometimes it is not worth the risk.”
The more that I watch the Titans on NFL Game Rewind, the more I’m convinced Johnson is a huge part of the problem. It’s not all the line’s fault, which is why Munchak isn’t making any changes.
