Chris Johnson not taking blame for Titans' run game

Chris Johnson said the Tennessee Titans offense has to work as a unit in order to find success.

But Johnson said he is not to blame for the run game problems, even though he knows he is a target, according to TitanInsider.com.

“Even when I went for 2,000, I didn't think I was perfect, but I wouldn't sit here and say I'm to blame. I'm only gonna be as good as my line is going to be. We've got to work together and get better,” Johnson said.

Johnson said he knows he is a target for criticism after holding out for a $53 million contract extension.

“I'm the highest paid guy on this team, so of course, I get the criticism. But it's something I don't let get me down,” Johnson said.

Coach Mike Munchak didn't want to play the blame game with CJ or the offensive line.

“It's an on-going question and we're going to have to let it play out the next couple of weeks to see how we do,” Munchak said. “Everyone is obviously responsible on offense, from the play caller to the quarterback, who may be getting us in and out of a play, running the play into a bad look, to the blocking. It's a team effort when things are not going well. If it was one thing, we'd make an adjustment to that one thing. We're just gonna have to plow ahead this weekend, and hopefully, we'll get a lot more opportunities than eight to hand the ball off.”
