Chris Johnson destined for a remarkable record

C. Johnson
After producing 59 yards on the ground Sunday against the Chargers, Titans running back Chris Johnson is third in the NFL with 721 yards rushing on the season. He’s on pace for 1,442 yards, which would leave him an NFL record 1,058 yards short of his stated goal. It is believed this would give Johnson the NFL’s all-time single season record for largest margin of failure for a preseason goal.

The previous record was held by Vikings defensive end Ray Edwards, who, in 2008, registered just five sacks, falling short of his preseason goal by a whopping 18.

Only healthy players can qualify for the largest margin of failure record. And, obviously, only ambitious – and boastful – players contend for it.

Since his streak of 12 straight games with 100 yards or more rushing was snapped against the Steelers in Week 2, Johnson has had rushing totals of 53 yards against the Broncos, 66 yards against the Eagles and, as already stated, 59 yards against the Chargers. He’s still a superstar.

I agree with you arinze. 

Great article andy! I will be sure to read all that you write in the future. (sarcasm)      I am sure that there is plenty of useless rambling in past articles that you have been a part of. 

I am excited to see what the Titans are going to do with the new addition of Moss to there WR corp. That and getting the QB healthy will open things up for the running game. Chris Johnson is a stud.
