The NFL released its All-Decade Team, and their biggest snub is a Tennessee Titans great, and he’s not happy about it.
The NFL’s All-Decade Team is always a fun thing to look out for at the beginning of each decade, and a fun thing to predict for the upcoming decade. But one Tennessee Titans great got snubbed in the selection process, and he’s not too happy.
One player not on that list: Chris Johnson. In fact, he didn’t even make NFL.com’s top-ten snubs list either, which is another snub in itself.
And CJ2K isn’t very happy about his snub either, and I tend to agree with him. Four-straight 1,000-yard rushing seasons to open up the decade doesn’t seem too shabby.
The year before that, he rushed for 2,006 rushing yards, but unfortunately, 2009 stats don’t affect this decade’s All-Decade Team. Of course, when Johnson parted ways with the Titans, he dropped off a bit. He didn’t hit the 1,000-yard mark in another team’s uniform.
In 2016, two years after he left the Titans, he had a steep drop off totaling only 95 yards that season. He only played four games, but after that, he was never the same. His lack of success in 2016 and 2017 could be the very reason he didn’t make the All-Decade Team.
Regardless, I think the first half of the decade and his dominance in the first five years of the decade should be good enough to qualify for the All-Decade Team. Johnson thinks that, too. After taking his reaction to Twitter, it’s clear that he’s not happy about the snub.
No Titan made the 2010 All-Decade Team, even if they should’ve. This should be no surprise because, year after year, the NFL and national media overlook the Titans. Have the Titans been great in recent memory? No, not often, but when they are really good, they don’t get the respect they deserve.
Maybe if CJ2K was able to have the 2,000-yard season in 2010 and have all six of his six-straight 1,000-yard seasons starting at the beginning of the decade, then he probably would’ve made the list.
