White misreads Titans '09 dropoff
By Paul Kuharsky
Asked if the offensive system of his new team, Seattle, is similar to that of his old team, Tennessee, here’s what LenDale White told Fox Sports Radio:
“You know what is crazy is that it is the same stuff that we have in Tennessee. It is the same exact things. I think what happened was in Tennessee they probably got a little too carried away with the Chris Johnson thing. The year before that we were 13-3 when I had two-hundred carries and we split the rock. Chris went to the Pro Bowl and we had the first round bye, they did things different the next year and we struggled to make the playoffs. It is what it is. It is the same offense down here in Seattle. I am very familiar. I know how to pick up pass protection and stuff like that. The playbook is not what I am worried about. I am just worried about the opportunity and I think that Pete [Carroll] is going to give me a chance.”
Yeah, sorry LenDale, but on the list of things that took the Titans to 0-6, 8-8 and out of the playoffs, the carry distribution in the backfield doesn't even earn a spot.
Try limited pass rush, shoddy pass defense, special teams fiascos, Chuck Cecil's adjustment period, a bad start by Kerry Collins and his receivers, injuries, the Colts…
