Chris Johnson Is "Da Man"!

Two thumbs up to Chris Johnson and the Tennessee Titans

  • The Titans end the season at 8-8 after a woeful 0-6 start. Not bad! They deserve credit for salvaging their season.
  • RB Chris Johnson had a spectacular season.
A look at Johnson's historic numbers--


2000-yards Club

  1. Eric Dickerson (1984) - 2,105 yards
  2. Jamal Lewis (2003) - 2,066 yards
  3. Barry Sanders (1997) - 2,053 yards
  4. Terrell Davis (1998) - 2,008 yards
  5. Chris Johnson (2009) - 2,006 yards
  6. O.J. Simpson (1973) - 2,003 yards (in 14 games)

2,000-500 Club

Johnson breaks Marshall Faulk's 1999 NFL record of 2,429 yards from scrimmage. He ends the season with 2,509 total yards (2,006 rushing, 503 receiving). He becomes the first member of the 2,000-500 club.


Johnson's 2,006 rushing yards break Earl Campbell's team record of 1,934. Campbell did it for the then-Houston Oilers before they evolved into the Tennessee Titans.

With all things considered, the Titans should go down as one of the most successful 8-8 teams in NFL history and Chris Johnson as having one of the most spectacular individual seasons ever.
