Chris Johnson got paid and then had an off year.
It wasn’t a terrible year, just not one that we are accustom to from Johnson. He never seemed in good shape nor did that explosive burst ever appear during the season.
A lot of people *cough* fantasy owners *cough*, have given up on him, he says that would be a mistake.
“I know it is one of those ‘What have you done for me lately?’ situations,” Johnson said according to Jim Wyatt of the Tennessean. “People are not going to look at me as the No. 1 running back in the league. There are people out there who aren’t going to give me the respect I deserve. But at the end of the day it doesn’t matter what anybody else thinks.
“I feel I am still the best back in the league, and I have no problem saying that. None of the active backs have done anything that I have done in the first four years, even though I had a bad year last year. So I still feel like I am the best back in the league.”
