Chris Johnsons Tweet (Twitter)


Recommended Posts

"Can these fake Titans fans **** on my timeline, I don't have a regular job, so don't compare me to you, and I can care less if you think I am greedy."

This is two days old, but I gotta say, I usually do not fume over tweets, but this one really got under my skin. First he calls out Titans fans, then he tosses profanity, then he reminds us regular working folk that we do not compare to him, and then he does not deny the possibility he is greedy (ie. by brushing off the declaration). I am amazed in just under 120 words how many things Johnson did wrong here.

If this was any average player, I would be fine with the Tweet, but Johnson is the face of the Titans organization. There may be 8-yr old kids who look up to this guy! Can you imagine if Peyton Manning made a tweet like this!?! Wow.

I hope we knock Johnson out during the regular season. He might be fast, but the Colts have no issues shutting speed guys up and sealing off the edges.

Interesting that he is so uneducated that he does not understand the difference between "could care less" versus "could NOT care less".

Dmf is fortunate he has incredible physical skill, the greedy full of himself dumb dumb.

It drives me nuts when people say could care less and mean couldn't care less. If they took 2 seconds to think about it, they would say the right thing and it would make sense. I could care less means you care about it a decent amount

According to the article from newschannel5.com, CJ later tweeted that those comments were not aimed at his true fans, but were directed towards fans who made racist comments towards him. I guess I would like to know what those racist comments were. Not that it makes much of a difference. What he said shows that he is immature and conceited. I strongly dislike players who forget that their million dollar paychecks and their billions in endorsement deals are a direct result of the money that their fans spend on tickets, merchandise, etc. Yes, even those fans who make immature racist comments about your holdout CJ. Why don't you put your big boy pants on, be a man, and ignore them. If you had a shred of self-confidence, you wouldn't have responded with an insult that probably slams better than 99% of your fan base. You know... all those people with regular jobs.

not saying i agree with johnson but having a career in the nfl is different from a regular job because it shortens your life. many former players have died at our 50 years old. just recently lee ray salmon died at age 56.

Yea, but somehow I doubt that is what he meant :D.

It's certainly different than what most people have, but as ReMeDy said, I'm sure he didn't mean it in that sense.

    • I have to say I've read a number of articles where the writers are predicting where the best fits are for some of the top free agents.  Another one today where they are placing J. Clowney with the Colts.  This fit with Clowney is being mentioned quite frequently.  Today's article mentioned we tried to get him last year but he went to the Titans.  They feel he fits our scheme perfectly and is still only 28 years old.  Great setting the edge and next to Buckner he could really have a big year.  I believe he signed a one year deal last year for 12M.  Maybe Ballard gets him this time.  
    • Yes - best days seem to be behind him. He was one of the greats at one time. If he comes back, I hope he finds it again.
    • From what I've read, he sounds like a young guy who is getting better and ready for a breakout season. He had some good pressure stats from the article that was quoted. Of course, it comes down to who Ballard likes. I hope he likes someone younger. It seemed pretty clear we weren't getting the job done toward the end of last season, and I don't expect some of those guys to get any better at this point in their careers.
