LenDale White has a couple of new names

Tennessee Titans running backs LenDale White and Chris Johnson called themselves "Smash and Dash" last season, but now Johnson has struck out on his own.

Johnson, the Pro Bowl's only rookie last season, is now calling himself "Every Coach's Dream" -- to reporters, and even on his Twitter account.

White's response: "If he's the coach's dream, I'm the opposing coach's nightmare," he told reporters in Nashville today, according to an Associated Press report.

Titans Coach Jeff Fisher tried out his own new nickname for his backfield: "Dumb and dumber."
