Titans coach's nickname for backs: Dumb and Dumber

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Chris Johnson and LenDale White, Tennessee's self-proclaimed Smash and Dash running backs, are dueling over what they want to be called nowadays.

Johnson has dubbed himself Every Coach's Dream both on his Twitter account and to reporters. On Wednesday, he again declared that Smash and Dash is over.

White, the Smash in the nickname, compared Johnson to a little brother who is a bit delirious from all the attention he received from being the only rookie voted to the Pro Bowl in 2008.

Coach Jeff Fisher is not too amused. He suggests "Dumb and dumber."
