Munchak Will Have Challenges Once the Lockout Ends

Pro Football Weekly reports that Mike Munchak will have his work cut out for him once the lockout ends, not having a chance to have OTA’s and minicamps.

No OTAs. No minicamps. No implementing two new systems. No contact with his ballclub. Zip. Zero. Nada.

To say that Munchak will be behind the eight-ball when the lockout is (hopefully) soon lifted and a truncated offseason resumes is a vast understatement.

On top of cramming an entire offseason — including free agency — into a matter of weeks, Munchak will be faced with two pressing decisions that could define the season and potentially his first head-coaching gig.

The first decision, which will greatly involve owner Bud Adams and GM Mike Reinfeldt, is how to appease the team’s greatest asset, RB Chris Johnson.

Johnson is the definition of a player who has outperformed his rookie contract. In his first three NFL seasons, only three players — Eric Dickerson, Earl Campbell and Jamal Lewis— have racked up more yards on the ground. Although he didn’t come close last season to matching his historic 2009 effort, in which he became only the sixth player to surpass 2,000 yards, Johnson still finished fourth in the NFL in rushing.

And he did it with everyone and their mother knowing he would be getting the ball because of the Titans’ rocky QB situation. Seeing eight and nine defenders crowding the line was the norm for Johnson.
