Just got done a little while ago with conference calls with Titans running back Chris Johnson and head coach Jeff Fisher. We'll have the full transcript of Fisher and Johnson's respective interviews on HoustonTexans.com this afternoon.
Fisher talked about the team's roller-coaster season and about returning to the city in which he once coached the Oilers.
Johnson, the league's leading rusher, was a bit more colorful in his interview. I asked him if he stands by his prediction that the Titans will win their last 10 games to finish 10-6.
"Yeah, I'm still standing by that prediction," he said. "Ten and six, that's going to be our record."
Before that, Johnson discussed how he expects quarterback Vince Young to change the complexion of Monday's game.
"The first time we played them, Kerry Collins was starting," Johnson said. "They're going to prepare for Vince this time, so it's a little advantage because I don't think they're sure what they're facing because they haven't played with me and Vince in the game at the same time."
The Titans are 3-0 with the running tandem of Johnson and Young on the field together this season. The Texans will counter with what has been the league's No. 1 run defense since Week 4.
UPDATE (12:32 p.m.): Here's the full transcript of Johnson's interview.
